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?
