Yes, though I'm not sure forced is the word I would use, exactly that is what I was trying to say (sorry, my English is not always the greatest and I mess up a lot) When LGBTQ+ creators want their story under a LGBTQ+ genre for either a saftey net from people who may become assertive/agressive once finding that content in a story, or to let other LGBTQ+ members of the community know that it is a story about or featuring LGBTQ+ characters, they're stuck with the selection of usually 'BL' or 'GL'
Which is what leads to the "should my story be under BL/GL?" discourse in the LGBTQ+ community, because the genres very much have ties, associations and roots in fetish romance genres, but because of the queer themes and lack of an actual LGBTQ+ genre, creators will use these to promote their work.
Other members of the community are very focus on BL/GL being a romance fetish genre and have a very hard time overlooking that, and as such will actively avoid anything under those genres under the assumption that it is semi/uke stories and not actual LGBTQ+ rep.
And this I think is also were a lot of the discourse in perspective of BL/GL comes from, and why you have people complaining about 'proper representation in BL/GL' because usually the people that want more accurate rep and less fetish, are NOT people that were introduced to BL as a genre for fetish romance, but were introduced to it under the impression that it is a sub-genre for LGBTQ+ stories.
Even I forget to specify if I mean BL as in tropey romance fetish comics, or BL as in stories with queer romance when I make my comments (the former I am not very much a fan of depending on the content, the later I very love)
