It's the yaoi stuff that gives GW a bad name. Gundam fandom in general
tends to deal with sci-fi mecha, space opera, and modeling. But Gundam Wing
includes a bishonen element, which tends to range so far afield from
"traditional Gundam topics" that it really isn't appropriate for a general
gundam list, especially since there are innumerable lists that are geared
specifically to bishonen and yaoi fans. Gundam Wing spawns both Gundam and
bishonen/yaoi fans, but those are distinctly different interests.
