A lot of people like slash better if they imagine queers slashing, or imagine it to be political, in favor of representation, talking back, etc. That’s a story people like. And it’s a TRUE story. But when we think of heterosexual women who get off on thinking about explicit sex between (or among) men? Also a true story—that’s a story that I think more people are unhappy with.

I think a lot of slash fans are unaware that there’s often anger towards slash from (I’d say) especially older LGBT folks, and that there’s a lot of *lack* of understanding among those older LGBT folks that lots of the younger generation of queers grew up slashing!
