'''Before adding an example, consider whether the homoeroticism is made explicit within the work itself or comes from fan interpretations. Though the line between intentional and unintentional can be quite blurry, obviously deliberate examples (e.g. it gets in-universe LampshadeHanging of some kind) belong on HomoeroticSubtext, ShipTease, or some other form of QueerAsTropes. ''Ho Yay'' is an ''audience reaction'' and thus subjective, whereas deliberate examples are objective.'''

'''In addition, consider whether it's the kind of interaction you can describe with reasonable brevity as to why it comes off as homoerotic, even to someone who doesn't already ship them, and/or is already recognized by a decent number of non-invested people as such. Otherwise we'd be here forever, as every waking moment could count to someone with tight-enough ShippingGoggles.'''

ShipTease. Occasionally called Les Yay when referring to two women.


It probably originates from the old days, when the homosexuality taboo was serious enough that every gay pairing was considered a CrackPairing, so when authors wrote characters as very intimate with each other, audiences largely accepted that they are just very good friends, and moved on, or when authors wrote outright references to homosexuality, most just laughed at the sheer absurdity of the thought.

With the gradual dissolution of homophobic moral codes, more and more writers have been able to publish and share their work uncensored, changing media forever. Nowadays, {{Yaoi Fan}}s and {{Yuri Fan}}s willingly interpret any interaction as potentially gay, for characters without canonical orientations and even for those specifically [[WordofGod stated by their creators]] to be straight (in which case the author may be ''very'' annoyed by the fans' insistence otherwise).
