Femslash Meta Rec

Femslash-Meta ist ein seltenes Phänomen, aber ich liebe es, wenn es Ausnahmen zu der Regel gibt. In The State of Femslash: January 2009 versucht twtd den Ursachen für das mangelnde Interesse an kritischer Selbstbetrachtung und neuen Ideen im Femslash-Fandom auf den Grund zu gehen, wobei sie eine Momentaufnahme der Akte Femslash vornimmt: I think that most people like the fact that femslash fandom is so small. I generally like it too. The problem is, we tend to live in our own little world, our own little bubble. For the most part, we don't go out and interact with larger fandom. We don't cross-post our fic or our graphics. We don't engage. We simply sit in our bubble and talk amongst ourselves until we get to the point where we're all saying the same thing. We're sitting in an echo chamber and it's group think to the extreme.

In dem Eintrag linkt sie außerdem zu dem Beitrag Genderswaps in Fanfic - Looking For A Femslash Perspective, der den Stein ins Rollen brachte (Und dann auch noch mit so einem spannenden Thema!) und zu cleo2584s Femslash Fandom: Thoughts/Questions on Insularity. As the comments to the above mention post indicate, there is a rather conservative trend in femslash fandom as a whole.

Woraufhin havocthecat entgegnet: Why should girlslash be more like boyslash? No, seriously, why? Viele interessante Punkte. Auf die Frage Are there even femslash BNFs? Do we need femslash BNFs? kann ich allerdings nur antworten, da war jemand offensichtlich nie im Xena-Fandom unterwegs. Ahahaha! XD

Aus irgendeinem unerfindlichen Grund habe ich eben eine Antwort auf deinen Eintrag auf Englisch geschrieben. Frag mich nicht warum - mein Hirn ist heute wohl einfach falsch gepolt -, aber ich bin jetzt zu faul zum Übersetzen:

I love the references to male character bashing in there. Er - not because I like character bashing in any way, shape or form, but because it nicely counterbalances the m/m slashers' view that it's always the female characters who get bashed. *g*
Meinem Hirn geht es heute ähnlich. Meh. Aber danke für die Gelegenheit, endlich einmal mein SCC-Icon nutzen zu können. :)

Ha! I almost mentioned the male character bashing because...yes! *g* If a male character gets in the way of a femslash OTP, he receives exactly the same treatment as a female character who gets in the way of a slash OTP. That doesn't excuse bashing, it just means that OTP love makes people vulnerable to that kind of behavior.
Yes! And I admit I giggled like mad when someone in the comments said something like, "I don't dislike him because he's a man! I just plain dislike him!" It's so exactly the same as what slashers say about female characters intruding on their OTP. So exactly the same, and yet most slashers seem utterly cconvinced it's misogyny behind that kind of behaviour.

(Btw, speaking of SCC, I just wrote a Sarah/Cameron ficlet. My first femslash fic! *wibbles*)
