Mom, dad, I read gay porn at night. Don’t be ashamed. Just think that I could be drinking or smoking or having sex with a lot of people or being pregnant, but no… I Just read gay fanfics. You should feel proud. I guess.
a year ago
I did a femslash-fans survey for my bachelor thesis. So many of you helped me
and filled out the questionnaire. Again: THANK YOU!
wanted to share the results with you. There aren’t a lot of studies out there that
research femslash-topics but I do think it’s an important topic. I focused my
study on cyberbullying of femslash-fans and its emotional consequences. I asked
people if they witnessed bullying of other femslash-fans or experienced it on
Just to be
clear: I only asked about cyberbullying from outside the femslash-community.
This does not mean that everything is “rainbows and unicorn stickers” inside
the community. And I’m also aware that not all femslash-fans are saints, some
cyberbullying goes the other way around too.
And yeah of
course I knew that there is a lot of cyberbullying going on but I was still
shocked to see the results.
Why this is
so problematic: Femslash-fans see their community as their safe-space. A lot of
LGBT+ people need safe-spaces because life outside the internet is sometimes
cruel. So some find a safe-space (like a femslash-community), were they can
speak freely and openly. BUT even in this place they are not always safe.
If you have
further questions, don’t hesitate to ask me :-) My bachelor thesis is in German or
else I would publish it for you guys.
every now and then i think about the fact that in 2013, the douchebag who plays dr whale/frankenstein got pissed at red beauty shippers on twitter and told us that the show would never give us a queer ruby
