Well, looks like I'm taking control over this.

More like I was drafted.  

Drafted is the word.

I like drafted.

So, I might as well just reiterate the rules.  

We don't like yaoi.  The genre mostly, but issues on the actual fandom, which are run mainly by heterosexual teenager girls who wish to create exploitation fics and drawings depicting male characters from various pop culture themes who's sexual preferences have never been really discussed within said pop culture.  Mostly because whether or not these characters in some sort of relationship isn't really the matter or point of the movie, comic, anime, whatever they're in.  Basically adding such relationships kind distracts from the actual content.  Especially if said exploitation was made about characters from children's programs that go beyond the actual demographic age group mentality.  Basically if it's for kids, then it needs to stay for kids.  We don't wanna know whether or not Mickey Mouse has the hots for Goofy.  It's just a bit disturbing to think about.

Also, we are against creating non-canon pairings, yaoi pairings, mostly of character who are in the show already in a relationship with a significant other.  

Are we a homosexual hate group. No we are not.  We respect homosexuality in real people.  And I know of a few homosexuals...men actually...who really do not like yaoi at all.  Mostly because of how it exploits them and while it tries to paint a positive view point...I guess...it really comes off as negative to many gay men.  As in, real homosexuals do not do what these girls fantasize over.  And since most yaoi is written by girls who are their mid teens, most of these girls do not understand what being gay really is all about.  They don't know on a personal level the hardships homosexuals face, the bigotry, the hate, the pressure that society places upon homesexuals because society sees what they do as a deviation of what is considered normal.

Yaoi, mostly Western made yaoi done by Western fangirls, is not what homosexuality is.  It's an exploitation genre to do one thing, entertain a specific group of people and fetishize it for their own personal amusement.  It does not promote equality for homosexuals, it does not address the struggles real homosexuals have to live with.  It's just shameless smut, like any shameless smut.

And most of the time, it doesn't even use actual homosexual characters, actual gay men.  And I will say this, mostly this is society's fault for not giving more homosexuals a starring role, or make them lead characters.  Most yaoi stories revolve around some main character, and that main character is generally heterosexual or does not mention due to it not mattering in the plot, that he is gay or straight.  And when Hollywood tries to do its thing on making homosexual characters at least there, homosexuality becomes more of a character trait rather than just a preference on the character.  Sorta like the trope Men Act, Women Are.  It's Straights Act, Gays Are.  And that is a big shame.  The unfortunate double standard of our society.

And yes, I do agree, there needs to be more characters who are homosexual (regardless to their gender) play major parts in movies and TV, and any other form of entertainment media.  Paint a positive view for homosexuality in media that doesn't focus on their preference as some character trait.  One thing I can name off is the characters in Dragon Age.  You actually do get a choice of whether or not the character is gonna go for the opposite sex or the same sex and it not distract from the game play and story, but adds a deeper layer to the story.

This group is designed as a place for people who do not like the exploitive genre of Yaoi, regardless to whether or not we members are straight, gay, bisexual, or transexual.  This group is open to everyone who agree with our point of views and wish to have a safe place free from ridiculing fangirls who will die for their ship.

I'm mostly gonna act as buffer for those who wish to act uncivilized because they feel threatened by our opinions.  Anything I see posted here that seem hateful and disrespectful to us, I'm gonna flag it.  

We all do have different opinions.  Some of you who see this may not agree with our opinion, and that's fine.  We're not here to convert you to our side.  But don't try to convert you over to yours either.  

I also wish for this group to celebrate art that is not yaoi in content.  Showing perhaps two characters, regardless to their gender, as good friends and family, rather than in love.  You can show deep relationships between people without ever having it being romantic.  I'd love to see more art about that.

So, if anyone has any suggestions for where we need to take this place...feel free to contact me.  I'm Ghostwalker2061

F.A.Qs
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE F.A.Q BEFORE YOU JOIN THE GROUP AND POST ANY COMMENTS!!!!





1. We are not homophobic nor support it in this group. In fact we even have a policy against it. We just aim to filter out Non canonical Mature content. When the group was first created I didn't know the difference between Yaoi and Yaoi slash, and at the time I thought to aim at yaoi slash first. Trust me I didn't think it would bring this much conflict, we don't exactly like arguing with people time and time again about this group. However please acknowledge that if I could I definitely would change the name of the group, because despite what you might say we honestly aren't homophobes and we aren't a hate group either.
Now don't get me wrong.
I'm not saying we're not faultless I'm just saying that perhaps in the past we were a hate group, and I will admit as the founder I had very little understanding. However I do now, which is the reason I say we should aim to censor and filter hentai, yaoi and yuri instead of get rid of it. We understand now that people will like what they like, getting rid of all things that are non canon is absurd and that despite the fact that not everybody likes us, if we do censor and filter non canonical things into certain websites it will benefit those who want to see it, and those who do want to see it.
We know that not everyone will agree.
But we never claimed to be people pleaser's, however like I said before that doesn't mean that we want to argue with anyone. In our experience long lasting arguments most times are pointless because it becomes a game of who can make the longest reply and who can make the last reply, and that doesn't get anyone anywhere.
So as a group we don't ever aim for conflict and we do our best to avoid it. But we accept in life it is just one of those things that happens. But please try to understand us. We have faced many conflicts with non canon fans and we've had some harsh enemies most groups would have become hate groups by now but we aren't, in fact we've gone to the opposite direction.
I guess you could say we are tough but fair.

2. We are not an anti group any more but more of a censoring awareness group.

3. We have many reasons for doing this, however one main reason for me is for children and parents, because sometimes you can find yaoi/slash even with the safesearch on. And even with parent supervision it only takes a second to see picture

4. To all those who agree and want to join, don't be afraid to and send a request. Stand up and speak out against character abuse!

5, Don't be afraid to fight and when you need to fight, but if so you must find a reason.

6, We DO NOT aim to completely get rid of slash but to censor/filter most of it, however we do plan to do something about KIDS MEDIA.


7, Any homophobic art or members (admins included will be gotten rid of).


8, MAKE SURE YOUR ARTWORK ISN'T/DOESN'T HAVE:

SEXUAL THEMES

VIOLENCE

HEAVY LANGUAGE

HOMOPHOBIC

A SCREENSHOT

A DEMOTIVATIONAL POSTER

HATE-ART

DEATH THREATS

STOLEN (ART THIEVES WILL BE REMOVED FROM THIS GROUP)

SLASH/PAIRINGS (WHETHER IT'S YAOI, YURI OR HENTAI. WE'RE NOT ACCEPTING IT)

COUPLES (WHETHER THEY'RE HET, YAOI, YURI AND EVEN CANON. NO COUPLES WHATSOEVER)

REMEMBER NO COUPLES ALLOWED EVEN IF THEY ARE OC'S

9, Make sure try your best at your art, all genre's are acceptable:
humorous
encouraging
stamps
serious
comics
etc

10, No trolling, even if a troll is annoying you just block them and report them, do not start trolling them yourself.

11, Please try as hard as you can not to respond to flamers; just like trolls all you need to do is block and report them.

12, Not every stranger who comments here is an enemy, some are just asking questions about us, if a stranger is not being offensive don't be offensive to them, instead answer them calmly and do not hide EVERY comment that isn't positive.

Just like Yaoi fans are Anti-Heterosexual and bash females, Anti-Yaoi people are allowed to dislike Yaoi/homosexual non legit pairings or canon.


Call an Anti-Yaoi person a homophobic for disliking your trendy yaoi? Fine, will call you a HETEROPHOBE. =)

So you guys are only up to censoring yaoi and yaoi only? You can't censor certain things on the internet and let other things thrive. If you are going to censor yaoi then you'll have to censor all porn on the internet. It's pretty unfair to filter yaoi when there are more worse thing on the internet such as shock sites, weird fetishes, snuff, etc. Why not censor those? Also, I'm not saying it's okay for kids to see porn but you can't just censor yaoi just because of that. Any kid on the internet could  inappropriate stuff on the internet, not just yaoi. Kids shouldn't be on the internet anyways. Plus if you do want something to be censored on the internet a simple DA group won't do a thing. Everybody's free to what they want to do on the internet and censoring things would just cause problems.
