Obviously TruthInTelevision, particularly in UsefulNotes/{{Japan}}, though this character type is less common in anime than the CosplayOtakuGirl, due to this character type having less appeal to male anime fans. In the NewTens, both character archetypes tend to be combined and even expanded into including yumejoshi characteristics due to the aforementioned misconception that "fujoshi" means "generic otaku girl".

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 are into {{Shoujo}}, TL (Teen's Love) and Otome genres tend to be called "Yumejoshi" ("dreamer girl") instead.[[/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]]

** Season 4: Kris hooks up with [[http://everydayheterosexism.blogspot.com/2014/09/bert-convy-spen1970s-nude.html Bert Convy's]] [[WalkingSwimsuitScene speedo clad]] character Paul Hollister in the [[{{Crossover}} crossover episode]] "[[http://everydayheterosexism.blogspot.com/2014/09/love-boatfantasy-island-love-wont-hurt.html Love Boat]] [[http://everydayheterosexism.blogspot.com/2013/01/charlies-angels.html Angels]]" and with male Angel Bob Sorenson in "Toni's Boys" which is [[http://www.charliesangels.org/top-ten-gayest-moments one of the gayest episodes]]. Bob's [[KinseyScaleOfTropes Kinsey scale rating]] is probably a 5 and he and Kris watched [[ChippendalesDancers Arnie the male stripper rehearse]] together.

* ''Fanfic/MyImmortal'': Tara Gilesbie. DEAR GOD, Tara. This applies to her [[AuthorAvatar character]], Ebony, too.
** Tara's actually a rather weird case. While she vividly expresses an aproval of Harry x Draco, in the actual story they don't come even close to emotional intimacy [[spoiler:other than in the orgy at the end]], and she even grows appalled at the idea of either of them [[InsaneTrollLogic cheating on her with each other]]. Which in itself would actually be a rather clever commentary on yaoi fangirl hypocrisies.

The Japanese name for Yaoi Fangirl is ''Fujoshi'' (a pun that translates loosely as "rotten girl"). Sexually active fujoshi fantasize about having a [[ThreeWaySex threesome]] with two bisexual men and in all likelihood prefer bisexual guys over straight guys as partners, while voyeur fujoshi prefer to watch gay porn.

* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Tweek x Craig" has the Asian-American students drawing Yaoi fanart of Craig and Tweek, which causes everyone to think that the two are actually a couple. Not only is the topic of Yaoi discussed at the beginning of the episode (including terminology such as Uke and Seme), but all the art seen in the episode were [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent submitted by fans at the request of the creators]].

* YoshihiroTogashi is ''infamous'' in [[ShonenGenre shounen]] circles for this. It's part of [[AuthorAppeal his general interest in GLBTQ topics]]...but seeing as how he's also a NightmareFetishist (his main artistic influence is Creator/HRGiger), don't expect his HoYay to be sweet and cute...
