It's. Sooooooo. Cute! I couldn't resist adopting it.



*pets adorable twit*


Disclaimer, with subtitles: Okay I am not homophobic [I just think it's gross, hence the title of this site] or [the subtitler thinks she means 'nor' but wouldn't want to accidentally put proper grammar in her mouth] do I hate gay/lesbians [I just hate it when fictional people get turned into gays and lesbians] but I believe that none of these authors/screenplay writers intended for certain characters to be together [and thus no one should write them in fanfic, because it's gross, and besides, no one ever writes things in fanfic precisely because they know it's not the way the original source is going to go]. Plus i dont mind the gay/lesbian relationships [The subtitler thanks the webmistress for her permission and is sure queer people everywhere will sleep easier tonight after a long round of celebratory doing of stuff that gives her the creeps with she thinks about it] but it gives me the creeps with i think about it [But i'm not homophobic, because that's not exactly what 'homophobic' means or anything]. All we (the people who join this hatelisting) are saying is that we don't like slash. [We're not saying it's gross or anything.] We're not starting an online petition against it. [Just a list of people who hate it, which is nothing like a petition.] All we're saying is that we don't like it [Not that it's gross] and don't read it [So the gross thing is pretty much a conceptual issue, not a critique of any particular fanwriter's talent or devotion to the craft or the original source material so there].

My god, that's absolutely precious. Although I couldn't actually see the explanation on the adorable twit's site due to the frightening design -- oh, wait, if I highlight the text... one of the rules to join is that you must belong to a country? Whaffuck?

Perhaps I lack understanding because I was up too late last night writing kinky gay alien porn.

*stares in shock that 70+ people would sign up for this bullshit*

She thinks it's gay/lesbian relationships are gross and doesn't want to think about them, but she doesn't have a problem with homosexuals? She started something she even calls a hatelist, but it's just because she's concerned with intent of the writers, and it doesn't have anything to do with the actual homosexuality? Sure. Right. People use the word gross to describe things they are fine with. Uh huh.

Asshat.

Depressed but not shocked; it's a pretty representaive number, population-wise. I tend to be more shocked/depressed at seeing responses from other countries who I have it in my head should be *more* enlightened than the US.

I do. I am 5, and I want to inundate the site with slashers, all linking to their slash fiction sites. Or het writers who write pairings that are just as far out of the writer's obvious intent. Hermione/Snape. Andrew/Joyce. lalalala

The original twit is what, 14, you think? Poor, poor doofus.

You know, every once in a while, I just want to write a bit of slash dedicated to folks like that. Maybe I'll reprint my Spike/Riley story. ;)

Thanks for the giggle.

18. She actually looks to be a college student, from her personal homepage. Which is even sadder/scarier, given her grammar or lack thereof. She can write php scripts and master css for her websites, but can't deal with capital letters and the occasional semi-colon?

7. you will be asked to state your reason why you hate slash. just please dont make it too long and try not to say bad words :X

LOL! Whatever you do, please don't use bad words... you know, the four-letter ones? Like, oh, "HATE" or anything. *tsk*

And I love the rule "you must be from a country". You know, that's discriminatory isn't it? I mean, Martians might want to participate. Oh but maybe they're gross too. ;-)

Did you read any of the members comments? Those are the most entertaining bit. Ranging from fairly articulate comments about the intentions of the author to the many and varied versions of 'it's just gross'

The absolute best:

i absolutely loathe seeing perfectly platonic relationships between poor, unsuspecting fictional characters transformed into a lusty homosexual fest that the author did not intend to portray at all.

Those poor unsuspecting fictional characters.

I know, that's the part that gets to me -- you can argue about the author's intent and provided I *care* about the author's intent you've got some kind of case, but heavens, what are we doing to the fictional characters? We've ruined their LIVES! *sob*

Blink.

What scares me is that this person completed an education in the 'country they belong to'. Someone gave this girl a PASSING grade in things like English. Grammar. Possibly Logic.

As a member of the educational system I think I need to commit hari kari in shame now.

I also wanna have gay sex outside her window, but that's a whole nother urge.

I think it's the effort she put into the site that makes it so damn amusing. Codes, and php, and graphic-design, oh my, for something that she just doesn't like and doesn't want to read. That's a truly dedicated human being, when most of us would take the easy, cowardly way out by just... not reading it.

Awww! Web site, saved me from the icky slash!

I hate slash because it's wrong. Also, because I have writer's block, and Wes and Gunn are refusing to do the gross stuff for me, and I have a deadline.

If you don't want to read it, then please, by all means, don't read it. But why feel the need to spend time when you should be studying, or going to class, or, for heaven's sake, breathing, by designing a whole crappy website around something you're not reading.

And it always amazes me when fanfic writers feel the need to subdivide. Ficcers are a tiny part of a fairly marginalized segment of society already (fans). I mean, guys who spend their weekends sewing perfect re-creations of Star Fleet uniforms for their live-action role-playing game look at ficcers and say, "They're wasting their time."

Sheesh. Get over it, already.

Big props to you, as always.
