I followed that from your Twitter and it was really useful - thanks.

(I'm sure it still holds true for slashing anthropomorphic dogs.)

Interesting read. Also makes me realize how lucky (and insular) I've been in fandom, partly because of who I surround myself with, but also partly because of the fandoms I've been a part of, but much of that stuff was utterly unrecognizable to me in things I (used to - admittedly I haven't ready ANYTHING in ages) read, and most people in the circles I am/was in would be beat down if they tried it.

(But then also, the percentage of cis hetero white women in the corners of fandom that I lived in was very very small. Granted, mostly that just meant queer women, but there were a number of women of color, and a handful of trans folk as well.)

And also, I had never heard of folks claiming that writing slash automatically makes them fighting for gay rights or something. Most slashers I know are activists - but either activists for the opportunity to create fannish works (i.e. OTW, to an extent), or queer activists... because they are queer, or deeply entrenched in the queer community.

And mostly, it made me miss Minotaur lots and lots.

(it is early. words aren't easy. apologies. *g*)
