Forum › Why the switch to “Super friends “?

joined Apr 1, 2021

Why did the tag go from “Yuri” to Super friends”? I find that troubling.

Some may say it's April Fools but actually the PC police got their hands on the site and now we can't have a Yuri tag anymore. This is so sad.

I'm so dumb, I only saw the Super Friends tag on Tae-chan and Jimiko and was like: "hmmm that makes sense I guess" considering the context of the manga

Due to licensing issues with Yuri on Ice yuri can no longer be applied to GL

1) wasn’t yuri a term before that?
2) if that’s true why not use “GL” as the new tag?

It just feels so trite.

DNV actually copyrighted GL so we can't use that either...do you have any other suggestions?

Thanks for responding again... wish I had some really good ideas but, here goes nuttin’
1) using the word “lily” or “lily subtext”
2) using the word lily in some other language
3) or just saying ‘lesbian’

None of those feel as tender or evocative as the word yuri.
However, it doesn’t give me flashbacks to Saturday morning cartoon shows or the euphemism “just good friends” either.
I hope someone more clever than I can think of something... sigh.
RIP yuri tag

I honestly can't tell if this is a continuation of the joke or not. But I laughed at Yuri on Ice trademarking yuri somehow. Good one lol.

And I just wanted to reminisce about how Dynasty changed the tags to "Gal Pals", "Lots of Friendship/Moderate amounts of Friendship", etc. a year or two ago for April Fools'... but I missed this year's prank. Shame.
