    I think there's a phase that most female fans of BL go through (usually when young/just starting out) where they'll say "I wish I was a boy so I could be yaoi too!!!"

    I even knew what role I wanted during that brief period of my life~!

    Well, just out of curiosity... For those who went through that stage/are currently in that stage, what role did you/do you want?

    I'll make them viewable without voting after there's been enough time for a number of people to vote~! Might be a few days.

    Added~!

    I wanted to see what the preference was, but I guess there might be "switches" too. XD

    What about you, @LilyoftheValley ? I imagine you’re probably like me, and would choose both?

    I was never like, super fond of BL, and I definitely never wished that I was a boy, but the choice for me is very easily an Uke. I could never imagine being the one on top, I'd much rather take the submissive position that is on the receiving end.

    From my small experience with BL, the Uke is generally the protagonist and is very relatable to the protagonist of shoujo stories too, so I believe most girls would prefer the Uke as well.

    I always preferred to be the seme, and the few girls I heard saying they wanted to participate in yaoi also wanted to be semes. That's why I was curious~!

    Oh, true, I remember seeing a thread in a manga site primarily focused on BL that was like... "If you suddenly became a man, what would you do?"

    The majority of the answers I saw comprised of... "I'll pee in the bathroom while standing!" and "I'll find a cute uke and fuck him hard!"

    I had completely forgotten about that until you mentioned it though... Dunno, it feels like an issue of vocal minority to me though? Now I'm curious to see how will the poll develop~

    Both. I don't get the sharp divide. I really don't.

    Not that there aren't people out there with definitive set preferences. But switching off is better. Enjoyment all around!

    I love the way seme’s take care of the uke’s. I’m very submissive when it comes to that so either way I wouldn’t make a good seme, so I choose uke.

    I ended up picking both too!

    I'm not really sure if there are specific qualities about one or the both that are really me. I probably naturally lean uke, but at the same time I feel like that's kind of boring. I'm not sure if I'd enjoy being the male version of the fluffy cutesy damsel-in-distress, if you know what I mean. But at the same time it's kind of hard to imagine myelf as a seme too, since they're usually way more aggressive than I am.

    On that note I'd be really interested in any novel recommendations with a strong/cool uke protagonist!

    Seme, no doubt. Just imagine being the typical seme in BL: tall, handsome/hot, strong, rich, successful, having men and women thrown at your feet, holding absolute control in bed, etc. There's really no better choice.

    I wish I was an anime character so I can yuri my 2D waifus
    I’m not a BL fan because I do enjoy an occasional yaoi every now and then, and I’m probably a seme. Who knows, I don’t really enjoy letting go of my control but I never had sex before so I might be wrong

    Uke, no doubt about it, I think that is also influenced how I am in relationships so that's fun
