    Yaoi: Pron. (yah-oh-ee or yah-oy) Comes from "YAmanashi, Ochinashi, Iminashi" ("No climax, no ending, no meaning.") , that kind of takes it away from the romance section and into the fangirl kind of thing , which Im pretty sure we don't have a fangirl section . and I'm pretty sure the same meaning goes for yuri , although shojou-ai and shounen-ai probably fit somewhere in the romance section.

    I dunno how into yaoi you are but seeing as you know the acronym i'll guess you at least don't hate it.
    Now saying that i disagree with you're statement that just because it is prono that it cannot be romantic. Case and point ANK- or Ai no Kusabi- it in my opinion is a romance story
     
    seeing as riki goes back and dies with iason
    yet is labled one the the best yaoi anime ever.

    Now I'm not saying all yaoi is lovey and such but some are. So it some cases yes its romance and in some cases its just smut.
    Only fools accept the obvious and go no farther.

    Yuri and Yaoi are a genre all on their own. Romance doesn't necessarily mean that there has to be a romance. It can be a mecha yaoi, comedy yuri, etc.

    I agree in principle that Boys Love/Yuri deserve to be grouped as a genre of their own. However, I also think the idea of actually creating a special board for them isn't realistic for the following reason.

    To take BL as an example (because Yuri is less commercialized as an industry), it's very hard to define what counts as BL and what doesn't, because while some anime very explicit about their male/male couplings (like Pure Romance), there are many other anime, especially in the shoujo genre, that don't make male/male couplings official but strongly hints at them (like Edgar and Raven in Hakushaku to Yosei), while still keeping options open for male/female couples as well within the story (Edgar and Lydia in the previous example).

    It would be problematic in that, anime such as the latter, which should be more correctly classified as shoujo in my opinion, may be (mis)placed as BL, or vice versa.

    Keep in mind that in Earl & Fairy it's more on Ravens part than Edgar. Edgar seems fairly straight to me. It's pretty obvious when it's fanservice and when it's real yaoi. Stuff like Black Butler just looks that way.

    There's also Monochrome Factor where every character looks like they're in a gay relationship. Shirogane can only touch Kengo's lips once and look straight.
