>FUJOSHI ("rotten girl"): a self-mockingly pejorative Japanese term for female fans of manga and novels that feature romantic relationships between men.



Discuss yaoi and BL here, as well as series aimed at fujoshi (and fudanshi) like Hetalia, sports anime, and male idol anime. Discussion of BL games here is totally OK but please do not cannibalize the otome game general.

>The outsider: All knowledge of fujos is based on parodies and stereotypes from 2006, uses outdated or ignorant terminology (often calls BL "yaoi" and fujos "yaoi fangirls"), unironically thinks Sasuke/Naruto is considered the hottest couple of 2019 and that the otome genre is the same thing as BL. Believes all BL is about raunchy rape porn between a humorously massive "seme" and an "uke" that looks like a little girl.
Way too many of these retards on lolcow.

But even then, the vitriol seme/uke archetypes attract is fucking excessive. Is it such a crime if women, who have been taught since a young age that being slim, pretty and submissive is necessary if you want to get fucked, can't completely disassociate their taste from that? It's extremely mild internalized misogyny at worst and nobody is really hurt by it. Gay men don't need straight women's approval so I really fucking doubt any of them give a shit about girls wanting hairless bottoms, and straight women get to project the beauty standards they're usually expected to adhere to on men instead of themselves and other women for once. There's no moral highground in wanting to see a big muscley bottom, but not-like-the-other-fujos love to push the 'ewwww feminine boys, only bara is good' bullshit. I really think, subconsciously, they just want to distance themselves from stuff teenage girls like because everyone hates teenage girls. And appease men, since men really hate women not preferring traditional masculinity.

It's literally just that internalized misogyny FTTs are known for in their case. That's why they're usually worse about it than normal men; they do it for their smoke and mirrors masculinity.

Absolutely true. I'm a fan of polar opposites and size differences because that just makes following the couple's development and interaction interesting, a lot of people have the same taste. But as you said the hatred the whole seme/uke setting gets is amplified to ridiculous levels.

>There's no moral highground in wanting to see a big muscley bottom, but not-like-the-other-fujos love to push the 'ewwww feminine boys, only bara is good' bullshit.

Glad I'm not the only one who's done with this particular meme. The people who can't shut up about how much they love bara and how it's superior to every other style of BL can get so fucking smug about it. Your hairy fridge build bear daddies with giant dicks aren't much more realistic than the effeminate bottoms in mainstream BL, stop acting like it makes your taste more mature.

>>389250
>When they act like their 17 years of socialization and maturing as a member of female gender is somehow discarded the moment they change their pronouns on Twitter and cut their hair short
I feel bad for them for falling for it but shit their internalized misogyny became externalized misogyny with the retarded "anti-fujo" movement.

"Lesbian" porn for men and yaoi can't really be compared. While yaoi fandom has it's issues, the porn industry causes further entitlement and misogyny in porn-sick men. This causes real issues of harassment and
other problems for the lesbians and other women they encounter. And of course, the women who work in those inhumane industries.

>all I care about is fujos acting superior! Just like what you like!
and then say stupid shit like that. Fujos wouldn't feel the need to bring it up outside the fujo thread if there weren't retards like you going on about old, irrelevent stereotypes. It wasn't fujos who started this discussion, it was someone whinging about them.

>this is why every single character fits the same tired ass seme/uke dynamic over and over and over and over and over for the past who knows how many years now?

It's so painfully obvious that your only knowledge of yaoi and shipping comes from outdated stereotypes over a decade old or shit you heard secondhand, because this just is not the case anymore. Top/bottom preferences are real, true, but you hardly ever see "big, stoic, rapey seme" and "small feminine mewling uke" anymore. Especially since slash fashion is overrun with antis and sjws, everything is analyzed and dissected for maximum woke potential, non-con and dubcon are the devil, fics now have long screeds on consent and using lube and having everything be ~super realistic~.

And I agree, shipping isn't political and it is just porn. But you can't compare straight men consuming lesbian porn with women being into slash content. The power imbalance between men and women must be taken into account.

And most fujos in my experience want nothing to do with shipping activism and making political statements, they just want to enjoy their porn in peace. It's the pearl clutching antis who make the minutiae of fandom into life of death social justice issues.

No. 388468

>>388467
also i hardly know any fujos who actually use yaoi to be aroused and get off, where every man watching lesbian porn is using it to masturbate. plus writing and drawings will never have the ethical issues that real life porn has. even in ~problematic seme/uke yaoi~ no real life person is being harmed or coerced on screen.

No. 386990

has anyone personally ever trained their non-dominant hand for drawing?

No. 387008

>>386931
More important than the engagement rate is the relation of users who already follow you to those who are completely new and the absolute number of actions taken of users from that post onwards (i.e. people liking, saving, clicking on your profile, clicking the website link, following you etc). The more actions you generate, the better your post performs. In addition to that, 100% engagement rate is pretty bad if all that came from already existing followers only.

You can gain exposure on Instagram by liking posts similar to the content you post - people who are into figurative drawing will most likely be interested in other posts like that as opposed to fashion. Find out what hashtags are most commonly used to describe the content you post and mass-like. This also has the benefit that you learn how to "correctly" tag our own content (i.e. #doodlesofinstagram is actually not often used to show art, but instead the dog breed with the same name; #artofinstagram contains a lot more traditional paintings than sculptures and digital works)

Last but not least: network and post until you bleed: Find people with similar interests and interact with them. Find so-called "boosting groups" consisting of similar content creators that like each other's posts to boost it a bit through the algorithm. Post constantly, like constantly and comment constantly. Try out different posting at different times. Try posting a story a week (people will get special notifications if you post a story after a week or so of not posting).

This thread is for the discussion of transgenderism / trans ideology from a gender critical and radical feminist perspective. It was originally created by Admin as an amalgamation of the TERF and Transgender threads.

Gender critical and radical feminism define gender as sociological (feminine/masculine) and sex as biological (female/male). Woman is defined as an adult human female. Radical feminists seek to abolish gender as it is used by patriarchy to oppress women socially, reproductively, and financially. They strive to preserve women's spaces (such as restrooms, locker rooms, and health care providers) and areas of artistic and intellectual expression separate from men.

Trans ideology posits that one's gender is self-determined based on one's feelings and defines woman as the characteristics and behaviors traditionally ascribed to females by society. Increasingly, transactivists are conflating gender and sex and asserting that a person can self-identify both gender and sex.

Gender critical feminists strive to maintain the distinction between gender and sex. The conflation of gender and sex erases the biological reality of women, eliminates women-only spaces, and disestablishes women as a protected class. Existing laws and legislation currently being passed around the world allowing for self-identification on legal documents do not differentiate between gender and sex.

The acronym TERF (Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminism) is used primarily by transactivists and their allies to denigrate radical feminists and other women who express gender critical ideas. Transactivists portray TERFs as violent oppressors by virtue of their ideas alone.

Posts of related news and web articles are welcome. Posts of photos, videos, and blogs of transactivists for the purposes of discussion and critique are welcome. Please refrain from derailing, infighting, and ad hominem attacks. This thread is not intended for the general discussion of feminism, sexuality, misogyny, or misandry.

NTA but I swear in every woman-centric group or LGBT oriented group/org I’ve seen, if you aren’t centering TiMs (or, at the very least, validating them) then you’re ostracized or criticized heavily. My group of friends from university are all super libfem-y, and half of them ID as “nonbinary” now. They parrot the anti-TERF rhetoric. It sucks that I have to keep quiet about my GC views, but I’d lose a LOT of friends and acquaintances in online and IRL communities if I even hinted that I thought troons were nuts.

Honestly she'll most likely will. When you go on YouTube and see little kids in those "Trans cringe" compilation videos, it's an eyeopener that the stuff has spread to some little kids already. If this doesn't die out by the time your daughter gets older, it'll just be better to have a one on one sit-down with her and let her know the truth about the nonsense if she ever asks you about this kind of stuff.

>>341457
Honestly it's the handmaidens that are the problem. Men are not afraid to be as blunt and honest about their thoughts when it comes to policing what they should find attractive and they will support each other because they more-or-less, understand each other hence why you don't see transwomen hounding men as much as they do women. Because for lack of better word, "Normie" women don't want to be offensive and hurt a transwoman's feelings and put up with them to be politically correct. I'm sure if more women stood up to these transwomen and weren't going to stand for them policing them, we'd see a shift.
