Can we please stop "warning" for slash? WHY ARE WE STILL DOING THIS? WHY IN 2010 DO I STILL HAVE TO THROW A FIT OVER SHIT LIKE "Warnings: implied homosexuality" (HEY WHY NOT WARN FOR THE PAIRING TOO WHILE YOU'RE AT IT). HOMOSEXUALITY DOES NOT COME WITH A WARNING. IT'S TWO PEOPLE FUCKING AND/OR IN LOVE AND THEY HAPPEN TO BOTH HAVE THE SAME BITS AND ANYONE WHO FINDS THAT THOUGHT SOMEHOW DISTURBING DOES NOT DESERVE A "WARNING" SO CUT IT OUT. I MEAN WHAT THE FUCK. If you want to make it explicit somewhere that your story features GAY SEX OMG, put it in the notes or in the rating, BUT DON'T CALL IT A FUCKING WARNING BECAUSE THAT IS ACTUALLY KIND OF HURTFUL IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, YOU KNOW.

Also, to the girl over at this crossover big bang challenge we just signed up for like crazy people who are capable of handling deadlines but hey, you get artwork out of it, right, only the artist-to-author ratio right now is kind of disheartening, so maybe not, anyway to the girl who said about her story that it might include some slash, but only two pages or so, so she could make that optional if people who don't like slash want to skip it--- I don't even know where to start, here, but I think that if your narrative includes two people of the same sex being in love then your narrative includes two people of the same sex being in love and if you feel that this is optional then maybe that's an issue with your narrative, not your audience, AND THERE'S REALLY NOT MUCH MORE I CAN SAY HERE WITHOUT COMING ACROSS AS MAYBE A LITTLE BIT IMPOLITE.

OH MY GOD. I usually try and ignore this shit, but recently the "warnings" for slash have been everywhere and it has just become TOO MUCH TO SWALLOW.

(That's what she said.)

I'm leaving this public because anything else would be stupid, but man I hope it doesn't end up anywhere wanky. THERE WAS JUST SO MUCH RAGE I COULDN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE.
