people really, really need to stop putting the word ‘yuri’ on lists of “bad and socially harmful words you shouldn’t use” alongside yaoi. as if the emtymology or connotations of those words is in any way similar

I’ve seen people say that ‘yuri is problematic, you should say shoujo-ai instead’ and i’m begging you to please, please reconsider your position there



yaoi: coined by doujinshi circles populated by fujoshis and refers exclusively to pornographic content. literally means “no point, no meaning”

yuri: coined by the lgbt community in Japan. refers to any kind of romantic or sexual intimacy between women, explicit or not. literally means “lily”

westerners for some reason: these are the same
