>>9272>Bara in short is thick gay male
If you really want to narrow it down to the most bare essentials of what "bara" means, then it's "from gay men for gay men"
specific body structure is just an aesthetic actually, but at the same time as a matter of fact the main drive for the "conventional" fan as evidenced by taking a look around this website.
Usually bara artwork has beefy characters in it, true.
>This is getting close to the whole binary gender controversy etc.
True, there's always somebody who wants to mention something.
As I've proven myself with my own comment xD
