Would it be inappropriate to say... "KAWAII... Utsukushi desu"? He's handsome. Looks like he takes good care of himself. It says a lot that Japan legalizred homosexuality in the 1800s. It would seem that importation of or succumbing to imported influences effectively aided in making the legalization good only in word, but not in fact when it comes to domestic households. Call the "mutual tie-ups" unions, and subjugate "marriage" to "union", and if necessary, break down each union and by type: reproduction intended; reproduction not intended; union of convenience; union for tax reasons; union for political statement reasons, and so on. Given the divorce rate in some of the industrialized nations, allowing rampant/rabid homophobia to take precedence in purported "no-discrimination" countries is ... deplorable and inhumane.

As Christmas is approaching, I pray Christians remind their bloated-self righteous church leaders who Jesus Christ was, is and supposed to impart to humanity...ask the leaders to live 40 days in the glbt world before they wanna weave their religious wand or fingers to think they can help when they can't even help sexual victims suffered under their houses. The world needs Justice that shouldn't be bowing to any religious alter actually.

In response to lost_angel's query, I think the "rationalization" of such fiction not being "gay" is a mixture of varying factors. I have heard of instances where these BL fans display homophobic repulse at real-life gay relationships. This is a manifestation of compartmentalization that draws distinct differences between what is acceptable in fiction vs. real-life; either that or as the article states they subconsciously remove all gender labels and so wind up with essentially two "subjects" in love with each other. This is why they also do avoid using two female characters - because the target audience will invariably identify with them and "ruin" the perspective. Sexual scenes are also relatively rare, if not completely absent ("shounen-ai" aka "boys' love" is usually the more "PG" and purely-romantic material compared to "Yaoi", where sex is usually more explicit). Note that the fiction is written BY women, FOR women - there is arguably zero 'masculine' input into the development of the story, and so it's unlikely that the fictional relationships resemble their 'real-life' counterparts. For instance, the relationships are usually exclusively top (seme) and bottom (uke). They generally do not have 'versatile' characters - this is interesting because despite the ostensible desire to extract the emotion of "pure love" from the plot, 'traditional' gender roles invariably seem to creep back in.

Hmmm, I've always found the Japanese people and culture to be fascinating. But how can boy on boy love not be gay, even in manga? I guess as a foreigner, it's simply beyond my understanding. But regardless of any negative views on Japan, I'm a devoted fan ! I think I've found a new screen name, henceforth I'll be known as 'fujoshi'.

Even though same sex marriage hasnt been approved, that doesnt mean that you do not have the right to take wedding photos with your loved one of the same sex. Wedding photos serve as wonderful memories and everyone has the right to beautiful memories. Email weddingbellzz@gmail.com for more information.

1. Open Relationships: It’s a one-foot-in and a one-foot-out situation. People who are in open relationships must know that everything goes. If it’s love, you don’t need a disclaimer, make it a close relationship. 2. Neediness: Absolutely no-no unless it’s a sugar daddy kinda relationship. 3. Arguing: A pinch is enough but always make it up with hot sex. 4. Being With Someone For Comfort: Yeah, baby! Everyone needs it once in awhile. Just don’t overdo it. If money and material possession is comforting, then it’s another one of those sugar daddy kinda relationship. Nothing wrong about as long as both parties agree to the terms. 5. Going To The Club Together: No, no, no, nope! It’s like going to massages together. Unless both parties agree that one party is allowed to have too much fun; it’s best to avoid doing this altogether. Misery loves company. Ecstasy loves more company - more the merrier. 6. Putting Your Relationship Status On FB: Unless it’s a website for F**kBuddy, then don’t do it. It’s like staking a claim to a human being. We know you’re in the relationship so don’t push it on us who are still looking. It’s also drama mama to have your domestic news in my timeline. But do post some raunchy pics or vids of you both or him with another guy. 7. Not Allowing Your Boyfriend To Go Out With Friends: This is not the Dark Ages. Slavery is not nice. Unless it’s a BDSM, treat your guy with love and respect. Vice versa. Although it is puzzling whenever guys who are in a relationship kept sending me messages wanting to be my ‘friend’ or stating that they’re looking for friends only. Harlow? By sending me messages, it gave me a perception that all is not rosy with the bf. So stopped making new friends at dating websites and treasure your existing ones.

A good and interesting article to remind us some dos and don'ts in a relationship. Excitement and thrills are always at the initial stage, honeymoon period tend to be the sweetest but it will move on to another stage, when both parties will tend to understand and see each other in reality, many couples broke off after seeing their "real" partners while others would fade off their feelings and started to venture out for a better somebody. I believe a relationship has to be cultivated over time, couples must open up to discuss matters and find ways to compromise differences. When matters are opened up for discussion, both parties mustnt impose his views and beliefs on his partner, but with respect and adopt an open mind. I dun think there are many matters that are so traumatic and unsolvable, and need to call off a relationship! It is not an escapism and excuse giving session. When two persons are committed, both of them should work hand in hand to tackle issues and find ways which can strengthen their relationship as they move along. There are priorities to set and aim, regular review of these priorities would provide useful feedback and minimise unhappiness as well as misunderstanding. I believe couples who can communicate and share issues together, will have a happier and longer lasting relationship. We have to do our best if we choose to be in a relationship.

1.Open Relationship...Yuk..The world is mistaken in thinking that monogamy is a moral good. You can decide, by an act of will, to be monogamous to your partner. That does not mean the desire for sex with others is no longer there. You can make the denial of that desire as the foundation of your relationship, as in, if we love each other enough, we will control ourselves. But what kind of love is it anyway if you need to cage each other’s sexual energy? Do you really think caging each other will make you love each other more?. I dont deny its bored eating the same noodles everyday, but who ask you to eat everyday?hardly for me to believe a successful long lasting relationship in between without eat other meal than Noodles.lol Everyone has their personal understanding of "relationship", "love", and what it takes to build a successful relationship. If 2 people get together who believe in the same things, that's called compatibility .If you haven't talked about it, then you're not in a relationship. Be honest with each other, talk things out, communicate your wants, desires and expectations.
