ETA: Aug. 30, 2009 REMINDER..AGAIN:
This thread is where anti-EdxRoy FMA fans to safely express their disliking of EdxRoy paring without getting interrupted by RoyxEd fans.
HOWEVER, this thread is NOT, I repeat, NOT an anti-yaoi thread. There are people who dislike EdxRoy paring but not necessarily anti-yaoi. Please DO NOT use this thread to spew out your dislike of yaoi in general, or use it as a platform for your anti-yaoi crusade. If you would like to discuss your dislike of yaoi, please go to an appropriate thread for anti-yaoi discussion and post your anti-yaoi opinion there.
REMINDER about this thread:
We appreciate your opinions and comments. Please keep in mind that this thread is NOT a "DEBATE" thread where BOTH SIDES ("pro" and "con") would freely post and debate the issue. This thread is set aside as a "safe haven" thread for people who hate EdXRoy pairing to safely express how they feel without getting interrupted, heckled, etc., from EdxRoy fans.. As such, we ask EdXRoy fans to kindly stay away from this thread, and to anti-EdxRoy fans we ask you to stay away from going deeply into "why Yaoi fans go into Yaoi" kind of analysis and discussions, or posting any bashing and trashing of EdxRoy "shippers" because IMO that is not fair when only one side is being allowed to post on this thread. If you'd like to branch off and add comments & have more serious discussions about Yaoi, Fangirlism, etc., etc., please post your comments and thoughts on threads that are designed to handle discussions for these topics. Thank you!!
Special Reminder to Anti-Yaoi people: Please do NOT use this thread as a platform for your anti-Yaoi crusade. If you would like to discuss anti-Yaoi, then please add your post and discuss that on What & Why do you hate about Yaoi? thread.

1.-It's not an official pairing and there's no prove, neither in the series nor in the manga that you could say "yes! they are in love!" or "Yes! I can feel their desire like flames!!" nor anything like that. In fact, I think that there's more possibility to Ed/Al (Although I really dislike this pairing) than Roy/Ed (see the episodes of the anime where Al says "I want to feel your warmth again" and such XD), and still, I don't think they are in love (more than brothers love)
2.-Roy is 29 at the end of the anime, and Ed's 16, that means that their age difference is of "13" years. Besides, since Ed's under 18, that would make Roy a pedophile (or however you spell that), and that disturbs me.
3.-Everytime I see a pic or even read a fic of RoyXEd (Yeah, I was curious so I read a couple of fics because I wanted to know how you pictured these characters and what did you find so exciting about it ^^) and I see them always more femenine than they are, specially Ed. I find them too out of character ^^U
4.-I don't like yaoi. But even so, I wouldn't have any problem admiting they really mean to be together if it was shown at least in the manga.
5.-The way I see them, and the way I think they are, and the way they act, and all, keep me from being able to imagine them as a couple or confessing their love etc. Sorry, I just can't imagine it ^^U it's too strange XD For me their personalities are too far from making this couple true ^^U
I hope no-one tries to flame at me after these, these are just my reasons for not supporting this couple. But I'm really curious about why do you find it so exciting, so I would like to know why do you like it ^^ Anyone that is willing to tell me their reasons?

Hmm, I'll let the RoyxEd fans enjoy their fandom. Personally, I find the pedophiliac-tic relationship disturbing, but its anime and that's common EVERYWHERE (If I was forced to pick between a RoyxEd and a RoyxHughes fanfic, I would pick RoyxHughes before ever reading a RoyxEd... just because the age difference). So no use making a post about how much it sucks and how disturbing it is.
That's why I'll be reading my Royai fics and leaving the EdxRoy fans alone to read their Royed (is that it?) fics.
Another thing is that Roy is as old enough to be my older cousin and second cousin, and I find that even MORE disturbing.
But, you gotta look at through the eyes of a yaoi fangirl, two 'hot' guys together making out equals sexy beyond sexiness. So yeah. Why pair up Roy with Hughes or better yet, Armstrong, when you have a sweet girlish looking Fullmetal Alchemist in front of your desk?

ahhh yes the most if not more popular then EnvyxEdo pairing is most disturbing indeed i'm not a yaoi lover myself i think it's disgusting
what's scary is if you go on fanfiction.nt and go down the list of that pairing there is 17 whole pages of RoyXEdo it's scary

Oooh, the comments in the first post are so intelligent and... it reminds me of the gallery before Bacon, Mini and Celes of course... No, I'll not flame, I'll stay calm. My little Flame_Alchemist_Obsessor, You maybe don't like this pairing and don't understand why people like it, don't worry, you're not alone, I, too, sometimes wonder why some people like this or that pairing but it's like this, some people like EdXRoy (And with the movie it even got worse, I'll not say why so I won't spoil anyone) or EdXAl like some people like EdWin or Royai or even EdRose! Well, what can you do about it? Some EdXRoy fans like it because of reasons that have already been said and some like it because of much better reasons. You just have to read fanfics, some are bad, others are good and even excellent! So, don't worry and stop asking yourself questions like this, because there are a lot of very disturbing pairings in the Hagaren fandom you don't even know about.
'Buffy and Angel had gone out before and Buffy wasn't really comfortable talking to Spike and Angel at the same time, because now Spike and Buffy had been going out for 6 months and Buffy was afraid that Angel might tell Spike that him and Buffy went out, but it turns out that Angel had told Spike that they went out, Spike was heartbroken that Buffy never told him that they went out, so Spike broke up with Buffy to get back at her for not telling him that Angel and Buffy went out.'

(but thinking on the issue on a different level, post-movie fics I guess work since Ed is of age... kinda.. still is wrong... Roy is supposed to emo around with Riza not Ed XP)
[spoiler]Pretty much all Ed pairing except Ed/Al and Noa/Ed got cancelled out after the movie after they shut the Gate.... and while people bitch about Royai getting no closure, perhaps their closure was simply getting back into their normal routine. It doesn't really matter which pairing you support, because there will always be opposition, but you just have to make sure you enjoy yourself with it, I think.[/spoiler]

Okay, I am going to chill and "let the flames roll". Good point about finding anyone normal here. I STILL don't like it but. oh well, what can you do? But I did see some VERY disturbing EdXAl! EWW is all I will say on that matter.
