Well, when I went to Hawaii, all the airline staff who who checked plane tickets asked me for photo ID, and only 16+ year olds need photo ID. I'm only 13!

And I'm nowhere near 21! The 21 year olds I was with did get asked for ID though, which worries me.

I believe the correct spelling was "shounen" and I don't think you want to know :P

Um, how is shounen-ai different from yaoi? Is one less crass or something?

Now that spelling is a mystery to us all. I wish I could stick my finger into it and say it is that way or this way, but I can't. You see shonen, shoonen, shounen...actually, I can say. *Checks dictionary*
Shoonen!

And note that TGM is really a 65-year-old dirty man...why does that remind me of TM? Uhh, nevermind. ^_^

I may be wrong, but I think yaoi is supposed to be younger people.

I see people want details. *Grins*
Well, to make it very simple, shoonen-ai means boy love, while yaoi means roughly gay porn. So shoonen-ai is...uh, bishounen stuff. But really, they usually mean the same.

Aww, Saunders. Do you not see the beauty of it? There is a difference between a romance story on TV and a porno you buy at a sick video store and go into your "private viewing booth" with.

A. At the risk of breaking your mind, I did not say what I was going to do with them when I caught them.

Shounen-ai is the conventional transliteration for English, yes. I cannot speak for Finnish; Arctic is probably right there.

Yaoi is shounen-ai, but shounen-ai is not necessarily yaoi; the former comes from, depending on who you ask, a phrase meaning "no content, no climax, no conclusion" [AKA "Plot? What plot?"], or a phrase meaning "Please stop, my butt hurts!" -- in either case, it's basically a reference to plotless man-sex.
On the other hand, shounen-ai generally refers to stuff about male-on-male relationships. Yaoi fits into this category, but does not encompass it.

Is there a female equivalent of yaoi? Or is that hentai? Or does hentai encompass all Japanese drawn dirty stuff? I'm personally betting on the last being correct.

The female equivalent of yaoi is yuri, or shoujo-ai. And "hentai" literally means "weird" or "perverted". I believe in Japan it can be used to describe pornography in general; over here, of course, it's used specifically to describe pornographic anime.

The long "oo" sound is usually produced by the "o" character followed by the "u" character when written in Hiragana and by the "o" followed by a dash when done in Katakana. Hiragana is used for native words (most of which have kanji equivalents), while Katakana is used for mimics of foreign languages, most commonly English. So depending on what set of alphabets one uses, the spelling may vary. Since shounen-ai sounds nothing like any English word, I'm guessing it is in Hiragana. Then again, both spellings maybe accepted since there are exceptions to the "ou" rule.
