    Genuinely tired of getting into a novel only for it to throw some homophobic jab about how people attracted to the same sex are perverts or mentally ill or something that needs to be "cleansed" and other type of idiotic comments like that.

    Was 511 chapters in Summoning the Holy Sword only for the authors comments to reach the level of using terms like "perverts/disgusting" so I had to drop it :(

    If anyone has any novels that have the protagonist capable of using magic and or are placed in a fantasy setting without any homophobic bs and authors who suffer with a fragile masculinity/identity complex I would greatly appreciate it <3

    Hope everyone stays safe during these times :)

    Will Xianxia do, or do you just want “western” fantasy?

    Off the top of my head,

    Reverend Insanity certainly isn’t homophobic... but it is buried in mountains of edge. Read at the risk of your other sensibilities. It has one of the most ruthless and cunning protagonists I can remember, and if you like it you love it.

    I read Coiling Dragon when it was free, but you’d have to buy or pirate it now. That said, it is one of the easiest xuanhan to get into and is highly addictive.

    Renegade Immortal is still edgy, but it gets more lighthearted once he gets his revenge. I remember that there are a few racier parts in it though, so it is not for everyone.

    Sorry if these are too angsty, I tried to find the ones that I found enjoyable. I’ll post more if I find any.

    "Azarinth Healer" on royalroad. It is a great fantasy novel with Female MC that loves to battle, and great system. The MC is open minded and no discrimination in the world
