Ohh the fangirls, the fangirls. The fangirls ye have always with you. (Which IIRC doesn't mean 'there will always be fangirls in any fandom', it means 'you're always going on and on about the fangirls, how about giving it a rest?' I will, but not till I've vented.) The only time I have deep reservations about Saiyuki fandom is when the rabid fangirls get their yaoi knickers in a knot, as they're doing now. 'My name is Inigo Montoya. You kissed my monkey. Prepare to die.'
Truly, guys. No peak, no point, no meaning. Yaoi isn't canon by definition.
