This sounds interesting.
Now I know what fujoshi's do in their off time. Man never knew there was a term for female otakus. Now I think I understand that movie.

not all Female anime fans are Fujoshi, BL fans o.o/ Fujoshi only applies to Boys Love fans after all. So it probably wouldn't be a good idea to start calling all your female anime fan friends Rotten Ladies D;

That used to be the case, and still is in most situations including in Fujoshi no Hinkaku. However, the meaning of fujoshi has shifted over the years so that some contexts, such as the Kuragehime manga, uses it to refer to diehard female otaku, not just boys-love otaku. ("Otaku" itself has also had several shifts in meaning over the years, although in different directions than fujoshi has had.]

LOL!!

Actually I thought that. I've heard of the term but I find it interesting. But at least it only applies to one specific group.
