The Japanese name for Yaoi Fangirl is fujoshi (a pun that translates loosely as "rotten girl"). The word fujoshi is often misused to mean "female {{Otaku}}". Otaku girls who like seeing fictional boys in relationships with '' themselves'' tend to be called "yumejoshi" ("dreamer/delusional girl") instead. Many fujoshi are closeted/unaware trans guys, who focus their romantic fantasies on queer bishounen as an emotional outlet. Cis male fans of yaoi are called ''fudanshi'' (loosely, "rotten man"), although these are more like to read [[BaraGenre Bara]]. In any case, Yaoi Fanboys are vanishingly rare in fiction, and if one appears, he is most likely depicted as a {{crossdresser}}.

The Japanese name for Yaoi Fangirl is ''Fujoshi'' (a pun that translates loosely as "rotten girl"). The word is often misused to mean "female {{Otaku}}," causing female otaku who are not fujoshi (and know the meaning of the word) to write interminable blog posts.[[note]]Otaku girls that are into fictional boys and are into {{Shoujo}}, TL (Teen's Love) and Otome genres tend to be called "Yumejoshi" ("dreamer/delusional girl") instead. The name tends to carry the same connotations; if "rotten" girls are girls who like seeing fictional boys in relationships with other boys, then "delusional" girls/"dreamers" like seeing fictional boys in relationships with themselves.[[/note]] The male equivalent is called a ''Fudanshi'' (loosely, "rotten man"), but oddly enough, a lot of ''Fudanshis'' are straight. Actual gay and bi men are more likely to be into [[BaraGenre Bara]] though some also read Yaoi. In any case, Yaoi Fanboys are vanishingly rare in fiction. [[note]]It's worth noting that if a Yaoi Fanboy ''is'' seen in a work, he will likely be a {{crossdresser}}. This is because he will inevitably hang out with girls, so he will dress like one to feel better about himself.[[/note]]

Yaoi Fangirls are somewhat infamous due to the subsets that think HetIsEw and engage in {{Wimpification}}. In series where Yaoi Fangirls are seen, at least one joke will be made that involves the yaoi fangirl's [[CovertPervert dirty imagination]] and at least one of the male characters. This often goes hand in hand with said yaoi fangirl having a (usually rare for females) {{nosebleed}}.

** To say nothing about how hard {{CLAMP}} apparently ship Lelouch/Suzaku. [[{{BonusMaterial}} Mutuality]], anyone? With its infamous portrait of Suzaku getting down on his knees in front of Lelouch to lick Lelouch's sword? (ItMakesSenseInContext...sorta). Admittedly, CLAMP and the actual writers of the show [[ShipTease ships]] [[LauncherOfAThousandShips Lelouch]] with everyone from [[TheRival Suzaku]] to [[MadLove Rolo]] to [[ActionGirl Kallen]] and [[TheIngenue Shirley]] and [[MysteriousWaif CC]] to [[BrotherSisterIncest his own sisters]], but that doesn't negate their love for the gay.

* Much to Chrono's horror, his own mother, Lindy, as well as her best friend Leti are examples of this in the ''[[LyricalNanoha Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha]]'' FanWebComic ''[[http://www.entropymax.com/ Nanoha R'r]]''. Few things are worse than watching your mother celebrate after you told her that you found your male friend pretty, then [[http://img177.imageshack.us/img177/5795/nanorr13translated.png having her discuss with her fellow yaoi fangirl]] whether you're the {{Seme}} or {{Uke}} in the relationship and how to best crossdress you for your role.

* Just about every major female character in ''LightNovel/KyoKaraMaoh'', Not surprising in a comedy featuring a male lead and his all-male UnwantedHarem. The trio of castle maids in particular can be seen at several points poring over charts apparently depicting the protagonist's romantic prospects, calculating odds and placing and collecting on bets as events occur and make various pairings more or less possible.

Added DiffLines:

* ''LetsPlay/NicoB'' reinterprets [[Franchise/AceAttorney Maya Fey]] to be one. Pretty much every HoYay moment in the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series will end up in her {{Squee}}.

* Constable Maggie Habib of ''Series/TheThinBlueLine'' is very keen on the homoerotic aspects of football and in one episode speculates on the relationship between both {{Biggles}} and Ginger and Franchise/SherlockHolmes and Dr. Watson ("sometimes there's months between cases - what do they do then?"). The somewhat old-fashioned Fowler is horrified.
