    @Fudgenuggets; I'll answer XDD It's just my opinion so it may not apply to all girls but anyways...

    Why I like yaoi? Because it gives me excitement, satisfaction, and lolzy delight! A lot of yaoi manga/anime has pretty boys, handsome men - all the sexy guys that any girl could dream of. It's just blindingly blissful to even stare XDD

    But if there's a female character that happens to like one of the guys, then that female is so dead XDD It's somewhat jealousy, rivalry, and hatred with rage. I absolutely don't want my favorite guy fall in love with another girl. I'd rather have him love another boy because that is WAY much better. If the other boy is prettier than the girl? Then there will be so much celebration!!


    Even if the genre isn't yaoi, shipping is just as awesome. Imagine two boys having a crush on each other, or actually being in love. It's just as cute as a boy X girl love.

    Let's take pokemon for example. Ash and Misty? Together? Sure, they may look cute, but I really dislike Misty bossing Ash around... How about Palletshipping? Ash and Gary? Now THAT'S something XDD Childhood friends to name-calling rivals, but they boost each other's ego and they have this heartbreaking story that couldn't make them best friends. I'll stop here before I get carried away.


    Anyways, I think it's because the guy traits appeal better to girls. Female characters having a crush on a guy is just... wut, so typical, so cliche, so... everyday life. Besides, what's the point of a girl liking a boy? The outcome is just so predictable. Yaoi isn't something you see everyday. It's unpredictable, and there are so many kinds of stories for yaoi. Of course, since I'm a fan of yaoi I do get to see a lot of yaoi products but still, you don't see them in real life anywhere near you.

    Did this help?

    I got one: because the boys in yaoi are so feminine and androgynous, it's easier for girls to identify them.

    I support both yaoi and straight so maybe I can enlighten you. To me it has a lot to do with interactions between the characters. Some of the guys give a feel like they like each other. Another reason is the boy to girl ratio. Sometimes there just isn't enough girls. The anime Inazuma Eleven for example has a very small amount of girls with only six-seven of them playing important roles, within the characters ages. So if you're a shipper it doesn't leave much choice.
