…makes the story or image seem clearer and more real to us.

That same safe assumption, about the points of view of everyone around you, does not pervade selective private campuses alone, of course. It is equally the case among the liberal elite: at the Manhattan dinner party, the Silicon Valley startup, the Seattle coffee shop, the Brookline PTA. (That it is also the case in other realms of society, non-liberal and/or non-elite, is true. It is also no excuse, especially not for people who consider themselves so enlightened.) This is not an accident. Selective private colleges are the training grounds of the liberal elite, and the training in question involves not only formal education for professional success, but also initiation into the folkways of the tribe.

1 It is interesting to note that Keiko Takemiya, whose M/M stories stimulated countless Japanese girls and women to create their own yaoi and boys' love stories still works as an instructor in a manga correspondence school operated by .

2 The Harry Potter phenomenon illustrates the enormous range of dojinshi. In 2002, one ten-member Taiwanese dojinshi group, for example, produced in just a few months a 144 page volume featuring eleven different Harry Potter stories. None of the stories is yaoi and while boys' love is hinted at most of the stories are heterosexual in character.

3 In Taiwan, yaoi fans dislike the label otaku because of its negative connotations. In Taiwan, even more than in Japan, otaku are viewed as strange individuals living on the margins of society. Nevertheless, this particular interviewee agreed that she was "maybe sixty-percent otaku."

4 Eda began her career in Taipei as a professional manga artist at age 16. Because she was dissatisfied with low expectations and inadequate editorial guidance she received from her publisher in the just-developing Taiwanese manga industry, and because she sought more freedom, she returned to dojinshi. Her powerful psychological narratives deal with personality development, suicide, and "crime without punishment," but not with M/M. Her career exemplifies how readily some artists move between commercial manga and "amateur" dojinshi.

Our crystal ball for each college major.

There are more speculative and more pessimistic explanations of the meaning underlying. Two students from National Taiwan University who are sufficiently passionate otaku3 to have traveled from Taipei to COMICMARKET in Tokyo gave psychological explanations. Some fans, one said, are "depressed by men, they're dissatisfied with them." Yaoi permits females to construct males in the ways they'd like them to be. Yaoi also permits women to reconstruct themselves along masculine lines and to gain status, "some don't want to be women, they want to be a man!" "Women are physically weaker than men," and "there is discrimination against women." One of the Taiwanese otaku offered a having-it-both-ways explanation that elaborates upon the fantasy associated with yaoi: "to be a man and at the same time to be loved by a man." Is it possible that the female-as-male acquires, symbolically at least, the status of the male?

Saint Isidore of Seville includes discussion of them in his Etymologies, claiming they live in Ethiopia, where they travel with remarkable speed by hopping rapidly. Primarily through Isidore and Augustine's transmissions, Skiapodes became popular iconography in and world maps, such as the Hereford Mappa Mundi (c. 1300) and the Beatus Liebanae (8th century), eventually even finding themselves into Viking sagas such as Erik the Red. C.S. Lewis includes them as one of the fantastic encounters in Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
