    Fujos ruin another poll i see

    • BabyMagnum

      49% guys say otherwise

      • Carlos Hernadez Rios

        yes fujos

        • BabyMagnum

          Fujo is a term that literally means garbage girls so your logic is flawed. Also Akechi is the most popular character next to Joker himself so it’s not just as you people say “Fujo power.” So are you saying that anyone that likes Akira/Joker is also a fujo?

          • Carlos Hernadez Rios

            yes male fujos they are a thing

          • BabyMagnum

            There is no such thing as male fujo because 婦 literally means woman. If you mean fudanshi yes those exist but it’s impossible for 48% of all of the voters who were males to be fudanshi. So again your logic is flawed because of your dislike of a character.

            I don’t see anyone complaining about how Akira/Joker is ranked one or supported by Fujo power or that the hentai fans are the only reason why Makoto is ranked 2.

          • Carlos Hernadez Rios

            Yes there is a thing i seen them

          • BabyMagnum

            You seen women-men into BL? Hell show me a picture.
