But what disturbs me about slash is the wholesale appropriation and basic, fundamental changes that slash writers make to characters that aren't theirs.
I think of my original writing (which I actually still occasionally do), and the idea that someone might appropriate any of my characters doesn't bug me (much). It's the idea that someone would appropriate a character that I created and just completely change them to get the pretty mental picture of him or her having sex with someone else who's pretty that makes me angry. I wouldn't want it done to my characters, so I don't do it to others'. And I don't read fics that do. I'm not anti-gay. I'm pro-artistic integrity.
I just. This post is so offensive (and absurd) to me that I can't even see straight. Heh. But what is most awesome about it is that the poster gets SLAYED in the comments by a bunch of people who are much, much smarter than she is.
