what is the point of yaoi? Especially with the pedophilic pairings. Really, just voice your opinions here. Unlike mine, yours will be heard.

Edit: Just to be clear, by when I say yaoi I mean the act of boyxboy shipping, not homosexuality itself.

Actually, to all those Anti-GerIta Fans, Hima-san himself, in the comic strips, had pretty much made it like this in the Vday story:
Germany tries to understand Italy, and gives him flowers and stuff.But he doesn't understand it's 'romantic' in Italy.
Italy is uneasy about it, and is all 'What?You know what that means right?You're scaring me~!'
And then it cuts it all off, with a Chibitalia-HRE scene.(So i also think he was influenicng the theory that HRE is Germany)
So, It's very influenced :)
And FrUk is there pretty much only in the Eng Dub,only a small moment, in Paint it White, when Narrator Lady says that they secretly love eachother...Sexually~.No...She really says that.
And plus, since we all should know that France is a pervert, it's influenced when he tries to umm....Rape England on several occacians....So it's really for the Perverted Fangirls who wanna see England naked...
And RoChu is all about Communisum really...To my knowledge though, it's about Russia trying to ughm..."Befriend" China.And plus, Russia likes dressing up as a Panda and likes tricking China that way.AND PLUS, China has a slightly Feminine approach in his looks and ways, INFACT, He was in a dress in the Halloween strip.NO NOT STRIP LIKE THAT FRANCE.Ughm, anyway, this is What i know....Im sorry I really like FrUk and RoChu and GerIta is my Yaoi OTP(Yes i have one for each section of love) and that's probably just because how Girly Italy is..HECK-HE PROBABLY CAN WEAR A BIKINI OR DRESS LIKE A PRO--:D

I just ship everyone with everyone. ^^; In real life too.....But thats probably just cause I'm 12 and VERY immature...in ALL ways possible. I love Yuri, Yaoi, Shota, Lolita.Sometimes I just like stuff because it catches my eye, but somehow I keep bringing my precious G/L couples into real life...^^; I can't have a comfortable conversation without being all "Love is Love no matter the Gender" and i fight with my Homophobic dad alot because of it.... ^^; I guess Fangirls/Fanboys love Yaoi because if a guy really loves another guy, they'll do anything for them, in real life too, and people think it's Cute and Hott and Sweet and everythin.I love Love ... To me, it's as simple as that...All though, for some odd reason, I wish I was a guy so I could be gay...I mean, Im bi allready, and Im pretty messed up just cuz im a Fujoshi and Otaku in other NON-Anime loving people's eyes...WHOM I DISLIKE. >:U Wow it felt really good posting my worhthless opinion here. :D And i think because of Hetalia and Anime Im becoming a Pansexual!D: Im so messed up!!:D

no amount of bitchin or complaining is going to change shit, so ive sincerly don't give a shit about the subjuect. if u like something, who am i to say that its wrong and u shouldnt do it? i personally dont like yaoi or yuri, but baahing and bitching about it doesnt do shit at all.
nothing will change no matter how much someone presses the issue. religion is no longer really a fact on the internet because everyone has a different religion/doesnt see things the same way as how another religious person sees it.
if you dont like something, dont indulge/look at it, no one is forcing you to ogle whats in front of you or forcing your hand to stay on a page of the internet and everyone has pressed this matter in some way. it doesnt have to be about yaoi/yuri/pedophilia/beastiality/ect. so saying that others should stop doing it because its "unholy or distasteful" is being hypocrytic to what we've already said about things we like to enjoy.
ive had many people tell me that anime is distasteful because i enjoy slight gore (deadman wonderland, akumetsu, even naruto) but i tell them that im not making them look at it. i am not forcing their hands to turn the pages of material that i enjoy. and throwing religion at the matter wont help you at all because of how progressive the world is today.
if you personally dont like it so much, then direct your attention to other ways to deal with it other than bitching and moaning and just make your fandom, your fandom. there is a lovely group that attends to this kind of fandom for hetalia known as "asexual hetalia" contribute to it to help "counter balance" your fandom with others that feel the same way. hell, make your own group as well.
this is not a rant. i am not typing/speaking in a harsh tone to insinuate anger from myself or others. i am merely speaking what i truely believe, and is my honest opinion and i will not feed into a rage among either side of the debate, for the matter is, i do truly not care. flame onto this. burn me at the stake. i. do. not. care. i will not intertain any comment that i deem stupid in the matter, both on sides that i agree with, and on sides that i do not

Thank you for replying to this and saying your opinion.

But if someone TRULY believes their religion and what their God says is wrong, then if they didn't speak up about something they'd be even worse than the people who are advocating such things...

I only like one Yaoi/Slash paring and it's from Team Fortress 2, Heavy/Medic because they really have an insatiable need for each other. The older/younger parings are a bit weird, they feel like father/son to me a lot of the time. :I

I enjoy BL because I think that it's cute and stuff. I don't like shipping an older male with a younger male, although with the exception of XavierxReynard.
It's not like I don't like hetero pairings, but yeah. But love has no boundaries, that's all.
(I think people ship FrUK because of that one episode when France proposed to England.)

Umm, I think yaoi is a specific genre designed to attract specific fans. It doesn't really bother me and I believe that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. It's kinda like the opposite, yuri. Some people love it, some hate it, and the rest don't really care what other people think. Same for pedophilic scenes and pairings, etc.

Basically, some fandoms are broad and designed to capture the most attention by interesting the most people. Others are like cults and only want to create a gathering of a few people with a very specific shared interest.

I don't mind yaoi, but I can't stand it when people actually warp personalities and canon to fit the pairing, like in many, many, MANY cases of USUK. It's the uke seme thing that people seem to think must exist in every single pairing (England is not uke, people). And just because someone is friendly with another doesn't mean they're gay for each other. I mean, there are exceptions if the pairing is done really well, but that's few and far between.

Spamano scares me, because there are times where Italy calls Spain his big brother, and since Romano is also his big brother, that makes Spain both a paedophile and incestuous... wtf? That's not cute!

alot of yaoi and yuri fans believe that love is love, like :iconphantomphan14: was saying. if someone is in love, they should have a right to persue it.

personally, (and i don't mind what you think, i get tons of shit from people all the time and i don't care, everyone has their opinions) i am a very devout yaoi fan. i like the m rated hardcore yaoi fanfics and doujins, not *just* because some are hot, but because they are cute pairings.

i have countless bisexual, lesbian, and gay friends. i even have a transgender friend and she's like a sister to me (yes, she's a guy that dresses like a girl). i guess im just so used to all of it, it doesn't bother me.

like alot of teenage and even grown women will do, i read romance novels. to me, and me personally, i m not saying this for everyone, it doesn't matter what gender the people are. if their in love or are cute together, i like to read about them, and yes, even read the m rated fanfics if they are cute together in *that* sense. two guys together is just fine, cause it's just like a hetero relationship. it's just that their, well, two GUYS, so it doesn't matter to me.

i like the pedophilic pairings too (im a 17 year old girl, and i'll castrate any man that does that to a child in real life :iconikilleditplz: (i only like it in certain animes, like kuroshitsuji's fanservice moments) so don't flame me) but i really have no justification.

i just kinda like it, it's cute. i don't know, it's just my thing i guess :shrug:

Well, it depends on what anime/manga or whatever it's in. Sometimes it's because the characters act a little too friendly with each other, or are always hugging and holding hands. The fangirl/fanboy minds start racing and pairing and so on. I guess a Yaoi fan can ask the same about a het couple, you know?

Either way, it's up to the person. As long as others aren't hating on them or judging, nothing is wrong.

I really don't care for yaoi. It seems like that is he show instead of what the show actually is. You know what I mean? It takes away from the actual character's personalities. It changes the way people think of the show(or it did for me a little bit)

In my honest opinion, I am a die hard fan of Hetalia but that doesn't necessarily mean that I like yaoi. Like :iconzlamoon: mentioned, the pairings don't even make sense: FrUk completely contradicts their relationship in the anime series and GerIta would make Germany a pedophile and plus Italy sees him as a friend. Also RoChu also contradicts China's attitude towards Russia. Also, UsUk doesn't make sense to me at all. England cares for America as his sibling, particularly when he comments about his eating habits, etc, but that doesn't mean he's in love with him >< And lastly SuFin really bugs me. Finland sees Sweden as a friend and no way can I imagine Finland as being a 'uke'. I really don't get the idea of shipping yaoi pairings if they contradict with the characters' relationships in the anime series. (sorry for ranting too much)

Some people like yaoi because they think it's cute to see a gay couple. I am one of them. My mind thinks romance between two guys is cute. Love is love, no matter what gender you find it in.

I don't support the pedophilic couples though, and my taste in yaoi never goes beyond romantic fluff like kissing and hugging. There are yaoi fans out there who like to see the guys screwing eachother. I think that's just perverted.

You asked for opinions, I have given them. :)

I guess the point of it is just because it's like hetero pairings. Someone sees a couple hints in the manga/anime/whatever and think it would be cute. I'm honestly a Hetalia yaoi fan because of the history that these countries have. And as for the pedophilic, I honestly don't know, it's like a fetish or something...

I know, bro! Like … can you like Hetalia and not like yaoi? They're not in love, honestly. Just because you hang out with a bunch of guys, like how most guys do, it doesn't mean you're in love with them. If I hang out with my girl friends, it doesn't mean I'm in love with them!
Some of the pairings don't even make sense like FrancexEngland. They hate each other. It's obvious. And GermanyxItaly would make Germany a pedophile. Because Italy's really young. And RussiaxChina … they're barely even next to each other in the show. Seriously.

I know they're the same age, but honestly, Italy looks and acts young, so if you ship GermanyxItaly, he's basically a pedo if he's "attracted" to him.

I hate Spamano … honestly … it makes no sense … *facepalm*
