Abstract
Language is a condition for a subject’s formation, and identity is a factor in a subject’s understanding of self. The Japanese-derived literary forms boys’ love and yaoi portray male subjects as valorizing and acting on same-sex erotic desire, yet with little or no sense of possessing a same-sex desiring identity. Following Elizabeth Grosz, Julia Kristeva, and Michel Foucault, a reading is performed of a Western yaoi fan fic to explore how subjects in yaoi and boys’ love enter into language, and hence subjectivity.
