This week's poll comes from our member BurningFish. You can't be both genders, so you really only have a possibility of 4 of the choices. Should just about cover all the bases... In case you're wondering, yaoi is both the most filtered and the most highlighted genre/demographic in our database.

Edit: Changed the language to reflect better choices due to popular demand. Vote again!

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you do physical exercise?
Choices:
Every day - votes: 1881 (14.4%)
On a weekly basis - votes: 2918 (22.3%)
On a monthly basis - votes: 347 (2.7%)
Sometimes... - votes: 4005 (30.6%)
Never - votes: 1665 (12.7%)
I tried but failed - votes: 2263 (17.3%)
There were 13079 total votes.
The poll ended: August 17th 2013

Girl, read both BL and GL, but only the ones that have an actual story and aren't just porn from beginning to end.

I dunno about lots, but I don't particularly avoid either of those. (I do have yoai highlighted, but I highlight lots of things)

Yeah. While I don't really mind it in real life (we have a gay guy in our clique of 4 dude), I'm one of those straight dude who excluded the yaoi and shounen-ai genre in a search. But, I too excluded Yuri, shoujo ai, and gender bender. It just not my cup of tea.

I avoid both, but that's more because I avoid most romance series.

I believe blacklisting a series because it has homosexuality is a bad decision.
There are gems in every genre, so people who do it miss a lot of good series.

I avoid all BL and GL series... Just can't bring myself to read such series. I might read shojo-ai in near future... but unlikely.

I've read some shoujo-ai and even a bit shounen-ai, but I generally avoid them. I don't really mind it if it's homosexual side characters etc. but I dislike it if it's the main theme.
Not that I read that many series that consist solely of romance anyway. But as a guy I must admit that I'd rather read shoujo-ai.

What if you don't mind to read them, but you don't read a lot of it...

i'm a typical fujoshi, i read loads and loads of yaoi. but in my defense, as a shotacon its so friggin hard to find straight shota - i really prefer that since that have far better plots, but beggars can't be choosers.

There's straight shota? o.o

I'm a fujoshi for life , I guess girls are more open minded than guys in general

It is OK as a one-time episodic sex experiment, but I don't like it then it escalates to the point of being a Romance.

Girl, and I hate both, but a light shonen-ai is okay.

The choices in this poll are all lies.

I'm a guy, and while I don't read yaoi or shonen-ai, and do read the occasional yuri or shojo-ai manga. Key words in that last part is "the occasional". The poll only gives the option of saying I either avoid both types, or read a lot of yuri/shojo-ai. I don't read a lot of it, but I do read some.
