I've just run into some stupid rants about yaoi and slash. Don't mind what fandom right now, because it happens in ALL of them...
To me, any obsession is something bad. WHATEVER it is related to. I can understand obnoxious fans are always a pain in the ass, but not every yaoi fan is like that (LOLthatcomparisonwasn'tintendedXDDD)
so please, stop calling all us fanretards and other beatiful
things.We are not all like that. You also can find retards on hetero couplings. And in everything!
Anyway... I need an example here.
I've just developed some taste for Link and Dark Link. Some people find it just unacceptable, and they invent
a Dark Zelda. OK. You can do it if you want, but don't go insulting people who like slash, please. Moreover, when this whole thing start to go all homophobic... that's not funny.
For some of slash fans (me included), slash is just FOR FUN, we don't take it seriously, neither is canonical or real, it's just A GAME, just for FUN
, the same way some people love and draw sexual parodies of whatever thing they like. I don't mind if they are married, have a girlfriend, they are really not gay or they like do it with cows! IT'S-FOR-FUN.
So you don't have to go mad at us saying "WTFHEISNOTGAAAAY"...
Maybe these stamps will resume perfectly what I've said with my poor English.
If we have to talk about intolerance, let's have a look: from that point of view, with all that hate about yaoi, they are also forcing a character "to be hetero". Heh.
It is supossed that fans have imagination, and that's the best thing about fandoms. Then, why have we to get into stupid arguments?
I can understand you don't like certain pairings, but, do you need to go SO mad at that? Do you have to generalize and call us all retard fangirls?Why it's always so difficult to obtain just a little respect and tolerance in a fandom?
