Yuri Fangirls also exist, and are in fact the primary market for much of the genre, since unlike Yaoi and Bara, there's not two separate genres for straight men and lesbian women. Media depicting love between women and girls is popular among some heterosexual girls as well, in part because of the "forbidden romance" angle, and for their tendency to be [[CostumePorn lush]], [[BishieSparkle pretty]], and [[SoapOpera chock full of melodrama]]. (Not to mention, as a certain feminist [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simone_de_Beauvoir author]] pointed out, women enjoy soft, silky, uh... ''feminine'' things just as much as men. A yuri fangirl is rarely questioned about her sexuality (interest in homosexuality is generally seen as "just a phase" in Japan), but she ''is'' often questioned about her...[[{{Otaku}} exuberance]] for the genre. In fiction, Yuri Fangirls are a popular character type within GirlsLove series.
