Not gonna lie, most of the only instances of good LGBT representation I've seen where from people who were actually in the LGBT+ community themselves (She-Ra, Steven Universe, Twelve Forever and no I'm not referring to Vickerman, I'm referring to the other showrunner/writer who's trans, etc.). With a few exceptions from like, actual straight people making good rep (Rick Riordan's books recently, like for fuck's sake, there's a genderfluid person in Magnus Chase, how rare is that?), like hello, I treasure that cuz it's rare. All other instances of attempted good LGBT representation were from cishet people, many of whom reek of the mindset of "hey if we add gay people, people will stop bugging me about representation!" (fuck you, Voltron and A court of mist and fury. I hate you both with every fiber of my being. Also Disney)
I don't quite understand the hate towards BL/GL and Yaoi/Yuri as of late. I kind of get for earlier BLs/GLs and Yaoi and Yuri (like, early 2010s yaoi and yuri anime were pretty fetishistic and very problematic) but recently, I've been noticing that BL/GL and Yaoi/Yuri media have gotten... Better? Maybe it's because I haven't been interested in anime and manga for a long time, but I haven't seen a legitimately harmful BL/GL and Yaoi/Yuri since probably Citrus (i just know it as that one yuri anime where the sisters fuck a lot).
Yea, uncomfortable and toxic BLs/GLs and Yaoi/Yuri exist. All forms of media, from not only Eastern media but Western too, can and will come up with uncomfortable and toxic LGBT media, but a lot of people will generalize BLs/GLs and Yaoi and Yuri as all being toxic. Which is ridiculous, haha.
I think what makes people think "Yaoi and Bl and GL and Yuri bad" is the fujoshis (sorry can't really have a talk about BLs and GLs without mentioning the fujoshis at least once) and yea, understandable, but this is not a problem with the material, it's more about the personality of the person and how they decide to take what is fiction and apply it IRL. It is pretty uncomfortable for EVERYBODY involved, including us LGBT girls. But most of the people I've seen legitimately act like this were on the internet, or young, teenage girls (I was friends with one of these uh kinds of fujoshis, I've posted about it here on Tapas, ironically it was my most liked topic).
So yeah. Sorry for long post, the topic of BLs and GLs and Yaoi and Yuri are kind of interesting to me, seeing as to sort of consume this kind of media when I was younger (and I still kind of do to some extent).
Tl;dr - BL/GL and Yaoi/Yuri aren't always perfect forms of LGBT rep but they shouldn't be judged as a whole genre as being toxic because of bad media. Also, fujoshis are usually just teenage girls stop hating on them lmao
AAAAANYWAY I'm gonna promote my comic ahem, I'm bisexual and I run a comic that explores LGBT themes and problems (later on in the story though). It's kind of like a slice-of-lifey kind of comic about a guy finding a letter in his locker and chaos ensues (sorry TSAU doesn't have a good enough plot compared to my other projects so I suck at summarizing it ajknjadbnajkdb). A lot of the stuff's inspired by my thoughts and experiences, so uh, check it out?
I'll check out your comic though OP, it looks cute!
