I know right? Like, on their terms boy x girl is acceptable while boy x boy is inappropriate. It's not like I'm pairing up real people. Since they're just anime/cartoons, they probably won't look as "disgusting" as it would in real life (not that I consider it disgusting, my parents do).
You know my friend was an amateur novelist and I used to read his rough drafts. There was a teenage gay couple in one of the stories but he assured me he wasn't gay. Year later he came out to me, he said he didn't even realize he was gay. If you really love boyxboy you might want to take a good look at yourself. Btw he had girlfriends also.
I'm going to add some additional information today about the topic when I discuss it with my parents. I just want to let them know that this isn't like drugs, nor am I looking at porn and I will NOT become gay because of this. Also two boys kissing is NOT inappropriate. I treat it the same as a boy and a girl kissing, etc.
Look, they just don't want you to meet dirty psychotic men on the internet and end up pregnant or dead. This is their main concern. Your mum has some backwards views as a result of childhood religious programming, its not her fault. No good will come from sharing this information with them. My dad was pissed out to discover me drawing gory stuff and I'm fucking 31... There's no purpose telling them these things, they're old and out of touch and it's not important.
What you are getting involved in here is nothing to be concerned about. You are drawing some fan art, not sending nude photos of yourself around. They don't need to know. It's your secret.
You from this moment grant yourself permission to keep a secret. Start a new account on the side and explore your interest to its fullest. Become a STAR at drawing boy love. Make money from it.
When you hear your parents' bullshit stance on homosexuality, be strong about your opinion. Show your father what it means to exercise individuality by standing your ground. Question everything like she taught you, and if she complains you can tell her that you she taught you to do that and religion/politics and sexuality is not beyond questioning.
Kids are supposed to have secrets from their parents, it's part of growing up. If you really want to draw this subject that badly, why haven't you already? I used to have a big suitcase full of drawings I didn't want my parents to see, of course this was before a time of constant and easy acces to the internet I sure as hell didn't show them to anybody. Seems to me the real problem for you is not being able to showcase what you create, which I understand, so get yourself a nice and big digital suitcase ^^ (read: incognito account) and draw to your hearts content. Don't feel guilty about it, you have a right to your privacy and a right to develop your creativity any way you like.
In fact, if you want to talk to your parents about male pairings I totally would NOT give shonen ai as an example, nor Hetalia. Those are examples of how homosexuality should not be, it's almost a parody of it. Also, it's a cartoon, parents really aren't going to feel sympathy for a bunch of pixels on a page. Give an example of two normal, every day guys that they could meet on the streets and like.
