Today’s Talk: Do You Even Know What Yaoi is?
“No.6 is not “a yaoi.” (…) When you use the term incorrectly over and over, we fangirls lose the privilege of being able to participate in meaningful discourse about the series. I am not unique in wanting to both enjoy yaoi fanworks from No.6, but also to appreciate and discuss the narrative. If you enter the conversation calling it a yaoi, no one is going to take you seriously. Not because yaoi is an illegitimate media (it’s not!) but because No.6 has a plot beyond an incidental contrivance allowing two males to have sex. Even I’m not having a meaningful discussion about No.6 with you if you think it doesn’t.”
