Why do I love GL?
That’s a very good question that I’m not sure how to answer.
First. I define myself as a stereotyped friendly “Man” by the old book but with an open mind.
By that, I have some basic instinct that I can choose to follow or ignore, but they are there.
When I see a loving couple of human males and females, I see the love in the eyes of the girl but I see the rival in the eyes of the boy. And this disturbs my enjoyment of their love.
Classic thoughts like: “He’s a jerk, I’m a better man for her” can come easily to me. Because my instincts compare how I could make that girl happy.
In BL I have no personal interest to compare anything because I have no interest in getting emotionally interested in any of the two boys love. But I’m happy for them and I can see in there eyes that love is love.
And even that I have a BL series of my own that I enjoy writing I have a larger GL collection in my library than BL.
But why do I react on GL as a reader and not that much at BL?
I guess that I can see pure love in the eyes of both girls without any personal disturbing emotions.
Because my instincts only wish any girl to be happy, and I can’t be a rivalry in Girls Love.
So I can eas my mind knowing that they are happy and in love.
Question is. Why do I not write GL?
Because I have no idea of how the female mind works, I can only enjoy it.
