Why should het women be allowed to write m/m romance?
I keep coming back to this because it keeps being something I am asked to justify. But I was browsing Metafandom on LJ this morning and I discover in this post about fandom’s skeevy behaviour towards GLBT people that rm has already answered it fully and completely. I will be adopting this answer myself in future. Thanks RM!
I am _not_ saying that het people shouldn’t be writing slash (one unfortunate drama I’ve seen on the Internet lately), because hey, what turns you on, what interests you, no matter who you are, THAT’S PART OF YOUR SEXUAL AND EMOTIONAL IDENTITY TOO and I’m all for it.
