There is a slight, very small possibility that Louie might be a little nervous. Maybe.

If I had to make a guess, I'd say Louie must not be familiar with the concept of "forgiveness". :3

You know, he's actually quite a sweetie when he isn't trying to slash out your eyes. xD

I meant to ask this earlier but have I stumbled into a yoai or is it just an epic amount of rarely seen friendship?

@BushidoFox: To be honest I really fucking despise the trend of categorizing stories as "BL" solely for the fact that its got two boys in love in it. Really, it's pretty damn homophobic in general because its like, "hey, here's a big red tag because there are HOMOSEXUALS in this one, just thought we should warn you because gay people are SO ICKY, so have this here in case you want to keep pretending they dont exist and dont deserve any representation in any form of media".

Really the only GOOD(???) thing I can draw from the "BL" tagging issue is that it potentially helps us, meaning actual queer people, find something where we could possibly be represented in a positive light, but a lot of these stories marking themselves this way don't always portray healthy relationships, or just rely on awful stereotypes for their characters.

We shouldn't have to scrape at the bottom of the barrel for representation. We shouldn't have to look for a mark just to find something that represents us, only to be sorely disappointed when we realize its just ANOTHER comic about mindless fucking with no plot or character development. And I suppose that's really where the whole stigma for the term comes from, but now it makes people think that mindless fucking is apparently the only thing that boys in love can do.

To sum it all up, this overall trend of treating these relationships either as something to fetishize or something to avoid entirely because it would ""ruin the story"" really has got to fucking stop.

Skeptical is a romance story. There's going to be romance in it. If you don't want to see queer people, then buddy, you sure are shit out of luck.

@Rakewn: Whilst I can enjoy mindless fucking for mindless fucking's sake, I feel a bit annoyed at how special it's supposed to be.
Putting it in a little corner of the world, making sure that it's goddamn LABELLED IN CASE OF OFFENDED, and hoping that whatever one picks up has... Well, a story?
Something like that would be nice.

Some do, of course. Some stories out there just happen to have some queerness in them, with people who can actually be happy with themselves unless plot calls for ze angst.
Maybe some of those are really cute.
Maybe some of those just roll with it.
Maybe some of those are just really good porn. Hell, with a plot.

There's just one small part of me that kind of doesn't want to be on the same level as foot fetishism.

@Rakewn: I really want to say something supportive here but I just can't think of anything good enough.

I will say though that I'm sick of all the foulness and ignorance everywhere too. The first time I learned of the term "BL" (ironically just a few days ago) it immediately gave me a bad taste in my mouth for I new right away just what everyone would mean by it.

I also have gotten real sick of the people in the comments here making jokes and saying that Chip and Ellis should "just kiss already" and other things in that direction. That is not the point of this story, and as the creators I know you are even more outraged than I could be by all of it.

Sorry, I just really wanted to let you know that I agree with what you said and I wanted to show my support some way.

Huh gee thanks for raging out on me for just asking a question. I only asked in case I was misunderstanding something not out of any sort of prejudice or even bias opinion. For all I knew they were just really good friends... trust me I have a few like that and am a person like that myself. Hugs just make people feel better and I enjoy making people happy.

Ah and thats... actually a good point stupidlaugh

Anyway...

reply

Anyway just ignore my last comment its gone now. Sorry for the offense.

Oh and I had no intention of running away because of some homophobia. In fact that's not even the reason I was going to stop reading at all. I completely love this story and if a couple of guys kiss then whoopty-freaking-do to you it doesn't change a thng to me at all considering I freaking write full on erotica (granted it still has plot and character development) with gay, lesbian, bi, straight, and even furry so thank y'all for wasting time on several paragraphs of rants.

@BushidoFox: Your original comment, as I remember it, said something along the lines of "ah never mind its BL but i'll keep reading anyway", and it was that implication of "shit I just realized there's gay people here but i GUESS i'll keep reading" that really left a sour taste in my mouth.

A much better way to have asked your original question would have been to say, "is there LGBTQIA+ representation in this story?" to which I would have very happily responded, "hell fucking YEA", but both of your comments made it seem like ""boys love"" was something you were trying to avoid. And if you really are okay with it, then I would like to think that you would have noticed the "romance" category in one of the three genres that Skeptical is categorized as before starting to read it, and, as someone who is apparently so familiar with writing in-depth LGBTQIA+ erotica, would have been prepared to see any and all kinds of romance in a romance story. Maybe that's just too much wishful thinking on my part.

Also, I didn't waste any time making that comment; I don't consider calling out bullshit a waste of time. People other than you are going to read that comment, and even if you refuse to learn and grow from this experience, there's a very good chance that someone else will, and that makes it worth it.

Yes mam/sir

I apologize for miss wording the question I just felt stupid for even asking and couldn't delete the comment. But as for growth please don't be so sensitive and auto assume that I am coming down on you. I read something because I like it not because of its contents. And if I write erotica or just normal stories I don't label it because I don't care about these stupid politically statements because everyone is freaking scared of offending someone all the time. So in that case lets just let it go please and resume the story eh?

@BushidoFox: I accept your apology, and as long as you know better now, then that's what matters. But I cannot simply "not be sensitive"- if I see something that I interpret as queerphobic, I am going to address it, end of story. Thank you for your time.
