OH and the word “yandere,” the first part ‘yan’ comes from 病んでいる(YANde iru) which means “to be ill” and that’s totally referring to “mentally ill” so don’t use that either.
Yandere is a stereotype term created to describe fictional characters, and is simply put the Japanese version of the “cr*zy girlfriend” trope. Characters are called yandere when they show their love though violence and acts like stalking, being overly protective and possessive. It became popular in 2005 when the R18 visual novel game “SCHOOL DAYS” came out, which included a number of ‘bad endings’ where one of the love interests commits suicide or kills the main character/ other rival girls due to her love for the main character. The big thing about yandere is that it’s their LOVE that turns them “cr*zy”, rarely is a yandere stated to be neuroatypical in canon. It’s ableist because it implies through it’s name that problematic and violent actions are a “mental illness thing”, and also misogynistic because it portrays females as unable to handle their emotions.
I’m sorry if my original post was too short and unclear on this! I honestly didn’t expect that one to get so many notes;;
