Jap. 腐女子. literally: rotten girl. A pun, based on the homonymous term for woman (jap. 婦女子). Ironical self-description by readers of Yaoi Dōjinshi. The female counterpart to the male Otaku.

(translated from the german wikipedia page for Otaku)
I'm a fujoshi.
(The rulesets demand me to write shit even though I don't know what I'm talking about, and at the same time prevents me to link an image that'll explain things better than a thousand words)

Fujoshi”, the romanization of the word 腐女子 (“rotten woman”), is a homophonic pun with the word 婦女子 (“respectable woman”). It was originally created by men and used against women, saying that they (the women) "weren't suitable for marriage", as said women enjoyed BL (Boy’s Love), a japanese genre of fictional queer media. The term then was reclaimed by said women and now simply means "a woman who enjoys BL". Male and gender-neutral/non-binary equivalents of the word were also created ("fudanshi", for men who enjoy BL, and "fujin", for gender-neutral/non-binary people who enjoy BL).
In the western part of the world, however, the "fujoshi" term is being falsely accused of meaning "(straight) women who fetishize queer men", thus ignoring the misogynistic and homophobic origins of the word, as well as ignoring how many people discovered themselves as queer men through reading/watching BL.
Emma: "That episode from Sasaki to Miyano was so cute! You really need to watch this anime."
Hana: "Sasaki to Miyano? I have already watched it. I didn’t know you liked it, too! Are you also a fujoshi?"

Yuri: "My sister was called a fujoshi today on the internet, do you know what that means?"
Alex: "As far as I know, fujoshis are girls who like that gay comics from Japan."
Yuri: "Strange. That user who called her a fujoshi seemed to be insulting her. Why would liking some gay romance be bad? And why is there even a word just about liking a certain type of romance?"

Fujoshi (translated from Japanese as "rotten girl") is a term amongst the anime community that applies to degenerate females who are obsessed with Yaoi and gay men, usually to an unhealthy and/or uncomfortable degree. Fujoshis typically don't actually support real LGBT people (nor the show they're watching) and will fetishize a pairing of two or more young looking anime boys regardless of their canonical sexuality.

Essentially, it is the female equivalent of men who brag about hentai.
Sarah: "These two smol cinnamon roll boys are so cute together uwu they should date gay guys are so hot omggggggg"
Lillie: "But they're both canonically straight"
Sarah: "who cares, i'm a fujoshi and proud so go away homophobe"
Lillie: "I wouldn't be proud of that if I were you."

A female fan of BL

Literal translation of ‘rotten girl’ is a play on Kanji, essentially meaning ‘broken wife.’ originally created by homophobic incels on 2chan to deem girls with non-heteronormative interests (gay ships) as not suitable for marriage.

Has since been reclaimed by these women; it’s original literal translation has been disassociated from it’s current usage.

A weird chronically online teenage girl who thinks it's ok to fetishize gay men and ship them based off of looks and not chemistry. Often also involved with: Dream SMP, Proshipping, Boyfriends webtoon.
