Funu or “rotten women” refers to young women who like gay stories. The word first came from Japanese “fujoshi,” featuring bromance in fiction, TV dramas, films and ACG (animation, comics and games). Chinese funu appeared after the third season of the BBC drama “Sherlock.” It is credited for Sherlock fan fiction and video clips depicting the detectives as a couple.
