boys will complain forever about girls liking yaoi on that post about how shitty yuri by/for dudes is but they won’t take half a second to think about the power relations and structural misogyny that make those two situations not equivalent
I think you mean “the bullshit excuse we created in order to justify why it’s okay when WE do it”.
Your hypocrisy is repulsive.
And, by the way, Japanese mangaka and animators don’t owe you SHIT. Yuri is aimed primarily at a Japanese male demographic, and all anime and manga in general is created to cater to Japanese audiences.
They don’t make it for you, kiddo, so they could give less than a shit what you want to see, OR what you complain about.
Also, way to automatically assume that anyone that disagrees with you is male. That totally doesn’t just reflect poorly on you, and make you look even more childish than you already do by whining that another culture overseas isn’t producing content specifically for your white-bread American ass. Congratulations on the unintentional racism, by the way.

You know why? Because they don’t give a shit what you want. Neither yuri, sports-related anime, or any other form of Japanese media is made for you. Yuri is targeted at Japanese male audiences (and for that matter, lesbian pornography in any form is targeted mostly at male audiences):
I wish Japanese manga catered to me. I could do with more Bara in my life.
histhingwiththereindeer: I wanted to personally message you in case you don't get the chance to read what I reblogged on my original Squidbillies post. First and foremost, I do apologize. I apologize for offending anyone who likes the show and anyone who had anything to do with the creation of the show. My opinion is that it is terrible and annoying, and the reason I even created the post was because my coworker was imitating the dad squid all day, and even though I asked him to stop many times, he wouldn't. (Cont...)
I’m continuing here. So, instead of being an adult, like I am, I am not a teenager, I raged on tumblr and tagged the show and adult swim. I mean no harm to its fans or anyone who cares at all. I’m really very sorry, and I will allow myself to simmer down before I post negative things. I do hope you, and the fans of the show, accept my apology. Thanks for your time.
Apology noted and accepted, my original response deleted, and apology made public to avoid further altercation (at least, I’d better NOT hear about anyone bothering this person on their own blog!). I apologize as well, as I suppose it isn’t quite my place to demand what anyone does with their tags (not to mention making assumptions about a person’s age, which I should have known damn well better than to do in the first place).
While frustration at anything is understandable, it’s just kind of a bummer to see negativity when browsing a fandom tag. There’s already enough floating vitriol on tumblr to fill up the Grand Canyon. XD
In any case, no worries, and no hard feelings. :3
