Does anybody actually know what bara is for? Cause I sure couldn't tell you from reading its wiki. It doesn't do anything to explain how it's supposed to be used, instead faffing about with useless information. At most, it seems to want to establish itself as distinct from yaoi, but kind of just looks like it's making jabs at it, and the distinction doesn't even work because "yaoi" just means "male homosexuality" on danbooru(and I'm pretty sure most everywhere else, too).
Just looking at bara posts, it just looks like a near equivalent of muscular_male, and a few quick searches confirms this:
Even if you interpret the wiki as saying it's supposed to be for homosexual posts, then it just becomes a near equivalent of muscular yaoi:
It's very strongly bordering on combo tag status, and the way people are using it currently doesn't really distinguish it well from tags we already have, so can anyone actually explain how it's supposed to function as its own tag?
