Slash over Yaoi by Kellatrix Slash over Yaoi by Kellatrix
Heck, I don't know why. I just never find myself using the term 'yaoi' anymore, unless it's a DMP yaoi manga, which I almost never read anymore because I haven't read a good one since Jazz ended. They all seem the same now.

Also, if it's anime or manga, then it's yaoi or shounen-ai. If it's not anime or manga, it's slash.

So yes. The term 'Star Trek yaoi' makes my eye twitch a bit.

Well in my case I prefer call it slash to everything.

Even is it an Anime/manga or is it a television show/book/cartoon/etc.

This stamp is far better than one of mine. And has generated far less drama. :)

Er, I wonder how many people who use the term Yaoi know that it refers specifically to male-on-male Manga/Anime where sex and nudity are the primary driving force. Rather than plot or character development. It's an abbreviation for No plot, no climax, no point. Or something similar. Basically, it's gay porn written for straight people to read/watch.

While Slash means fan pairing that didn't really exist in the original plot (Fan shipping) or which didn't work out, regardless of gender?

I believe you to be right about the yaoi terminology, but I must disagree with your definition of slash.

Disagree, in what way?

I have never heard of slash being used as a term that wasn't related to male/male relationships.

Nah, that's probably just the particular fan fiction websites that you're looking on.

Slash was originally only for men, then came FemSlash. Now Slash is used for either. It doesn't always have to be same sex, either. It is sometime also used for heterosexual pairings, too. There used to be a long list of Kim/Ron slash fiction from Disney's Kim Possible. Then Disney made their relationship official. So I'm not sure if the term applies to that any more.

The more generic term is Shipping or Fan Shipping. This is basically any relationship between two fictional characters that goes beyond what's shown in the official version. It's often used for Anime more than American cartoons, I think.

I hardly ever use the term Yaoi anymore, unless I'm referring to man-on-man PWP from Japan. Personally, I prefer the terms BL, ML, GLBTQ, and so on. Slash also works, though I mainly use that one for fanwork rather than original.

I totally know what you mean. I stopped using the term 'yaoi' ages ago except to describe those aforementioned things. I was such a Japanophile back in the day, but now I recognize the differences and get very upset with my younger self. >.<

Oh, do I! I look back at some of the really old journal entries back on my old account and wonder if I could possibly be the same person. I was such a dumbass.

I know how you feel. I read one of my journals from back when I first joined DA and nearly died! To say nothing of what I wrote back then! UGH!!! 0_0

Yes! This! :dance:

I was introduced to the world of male/male pairings through the term "slash" ( at the time I didn't know what it meant and was quite surprised, haha! ), not "yaoi". So I am a bit attached to it.

Besides, I'm not really a big fan of anime or manga, so it seems a bit silly to use the term yaoi. :XD: The biggest problem with the word slash is that some people might think I'm referring to violence ( which is what I thought it meant originally ) or the music artist.

Thanks for making this stamp! :D

I totally agree with you about saying yaoi if it's not an anime/manga.

And I love Jazz! Have you read Our Kindgom? It's amusing.
