Why is femslash the smallest genre in the world of fanfiction? Why is femslash the most underrepresented relationship type by a sizeable margin? More importantly, why is it that almost all femslash writers are queer women? Male slash pairings are written by straight women, queer women, and even some men (I say “even” because men are rarer than a two dollar bill in the world of fanfiction) and they’re read by a mostly female audience. Femslash has a completely different ideology, because it’s almost exclusively written and consumed by the community it portrays. Unlike a straight girl writing about two boys having sex (and I guarantee that they’re two conventionally attractive white boys whose female love interests have been deemed either worthy of death or asexual by the fandom), femslash is written by those whose identities and personal narratives are reflected in the stories themselves. Maybe the writer of that erotic scene hasn’t had sex with a girl yet, but damn, she has thought about it a lot. That queer author writes two girls falling in love even if they’re straight in the original work because two girls falling in love means something to her and to so many people like her, and it’s important that she sees herself in a piece of media whose canon forgets she exists. One of the great frustrations of LGBTQ media is the fact that so little of our representations end up coming from LGBTQ-identified creators, and thus we see inaccurate portrayals with limited diversity. Femslash exists because we were sick of being told we didn’t exist, so we wrote ourselves into their stories.
excerpt from a very long piece I’ve been working on for autostraddle about femslash and why there’s so little of it (and why we need to make more of it NOW)

frickingrimes asked:

I've seen people get mad over the fact that there was a black soldier in Maleficent because 'it's historically inaccurate' and just??? This movie literally takes place in a fictional kingdom of fucking fairies. There are giant seahorse-like dragons flying around. One of the main characters literally transforms into a fucking dragon and a black guy is what you deem 'inaccurate'? Jesus Christ

ajcrowleys asked:

okay idk if this has been mentioned before but: in the kuroshitsuji fandom, people misgender a canon trans woman, grelle sutcliffe, and say that it's okay because "the characters refer to her with he/him pronouns" and a whole plethora of other thinly-veiled transphobic statements

also (tw for child sexual abuse and rape) one of the characters from the kuroshitsuji anime, alois trancy, was sexually exploited as a minor and repeatedly raped. he acts overly promiscuous for someone of his age (14) because that was his emotional response to the abuse, but the fandom make jokes about how “slutty” he is. and thats just. No.

i’ve heard about grelle’s treatment before but not alois that’s vile how do people not realise how disgusting they;re being

Anonymous asked:

usuk isn't incestuous though? like seriously when i was in hetalia fandom it was my notp i loathed it so much... but that wasn't because of any incest! i'm baffled as to where this is coming from because they aren't related

i hate usuk too i always felt like an outsider

i guess because uk was like a brother figure to america like he raised him and everything?? i always forget they arent actually related, same with germany and prussia

Anonymous asked:

TW: Incest So back when Tauriel was but a far away dream and no one actually knew anything about her, people were already bashing her for getting in the way of Fili/Kili (or even Fili and/or Kili with their UNCLE Thorin). Like my glob what the hell fandom, people are still mad about that. Now she exists solely in a lot of fics to add angst and add man pain. Look, I'll admit that I ship Elsanna (I always tag it though), but I don't bash Kristoff/Kristanna fans. Part 1.

I don’t get angry when incest ships aren’t canon (unlike far too many shippers). No, it’s not homophobic to point out their problematic issues or to ask to tag it. I have nothing against Durincest shippers. Still, the fact that many feel threatened by Tauriel is ridiculous. Fiki fics have a fourth times of fics as Kiliel, and Filiel and Fikiliel (which I do ship) combined together have less than 50 fics.

omg dont even get me started on tauriel hate
