Now you may start wondering about your loved ones sexual orientation. Just because your loved one likes Yaoi does not mean they are gay, but it does not mean they are not. Yaoi fans do not have one sexuality just like they do not come in the same size, shape, color, gender, etc.

If the orientation of the characters bother you, just remember that loving Yaoi has no negative effects other than at times it may take up too much time. Reading Yaoi will not change their orientation nor will it make them want to do any behaviors shown in the Yaoi they read, watch, and look at.

If you are thinking it is wrong for your loved one to like Yaoi because you do not understand it, remember that you have things you like that they do not understand and that does not mean you should not be able to like those things.

If you are still not sure about how you feel about your loved ones love of Yaoi, realize that your loved one decided to tell you because they want you to know about this part of them. Try to respect this even if you do not understand it. Even if you got rid of all the Yaoi they have, it would not change the fact that they love it and it would hurt they relationship you two have.

Hopefully you will be able to love and accept this part of your loved one and we hope we have helped even the smallest amount help you deal with this news about your loved one.
