queerwombat said: Ugh. What a blinkered and naive view of fandom. Not to mention dismissive and blatantly erasing of many of us. I'm adult, queer, nonbinary, and I am done forever dating cis men, and I still write (fic, RP, original) about dudes banging other dudes, for a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with erasing the "threat" of straight women (!?). So that is really ugly. (I keep typing "ughly". That too.)
exactly, same same same. and the idea that women are somehow in “competition” with other women is gross and outdated, and argh i’m still fuming. i want queer representation. i don’t care that it’s two guys, they are two ppl who i want to see in a loving relationship. it has shit all to do with “removing the competition” ick. i need a shower.
Yes me too EW EW EW.
And: ALL OF THIS. All of it! The representation, yes! The thing about loving relationships ALSO YES.
And fuck the whole awful cultural narrative of women competing for the attention of men. It is gross and toxic and I absolutely fucking loathe it. I say again: EW EW EW.
