It's something I identify with, for reasons I don't fully understand,
being, genetically speaking, male. But I've always had a much easier
time identifying with female characters in fiction, and almost all my
books and Manga are by female creators. And Yuri/shojo-ai (what's in a
name?) tends to be what i love about "regular" manga, only more so. (I
discovered manga in the fall of 1991, so, err, I've been around some
time...). I'd call myself a lesbian, but I have a feeling some people
might protest, claiming I fail one of the basic requirements. At
times, reading Yuri makes me feel like I belong, while at the same
time making me feel more alienated than anything else possibly could.
Does that make sense?
