Fannish wank. Look away.

OK. My fandom girlfriend is in Italy (without me!) so I don't know that anyone who reads this will care in the slightest. But I can't stand it anymore.

I am very nearly sick to death of slash writers who postulate that ever single male in a given fandom is entirely gay, and every single female is entirely straight, and despondent about the gayness of the men. Am I the only person on the face of fandom who perceives just a little bitty specter of the misogynist here? Where are the gay women? Where are the bisexuals? I'm willing to suspend my disbelief enough to enjoy the boi-boi action and all, but a 100% gay male population is a tad hard to swallow.

There. I said it. I feel better.

Heh. My Immortal Beloved HP fanfic continuity's got a significant het ship in it -- Charlie/Tonks. And although we don't go INTO it much, Remus is bi. Or perhaps "opportunist" would fit better.

Now, the original stuff I write with the same author is just loaded with bisexual sorts. This has absolutely nothing to do with one of the central characters being a big ol' Mary Sue indulgence for me, oh no, never. well, just a little.

Want to start up "half these slash bois are coded females anyway" disucssion?
