Add me on Facebook if you really want to read my heartfelt posts on racism, misogyny, transphobia, war, cops, income inequality, and guns! For this blog I try to keep my diatribes on topic.
It makes me sad that gay erotic manga is so often looked down upon, sometimes by the very people who read and enjoy it, as disposable garbage for “fucked up people to get off to.” It bums me out that you feel that way about yourself.
To me this work is actually more valuable and important than the art capitalism values the most. It has the crucial function of validating the identities and desires of some of society’s most disenfranchised people (those fucked up ones you mentioned). Because the mainstream art world mostly dismisses gay manga, it’s up to the fans to show it respect. Therefore I feel the need to implore the scattered individuals who do understand its value to prop up the people who make it rather than drag them down.
