Just my 2 cents on slash...

First of all, I'm an unusual tri-fictional reader and writer - I'm happy with gen, het or slash. I'm interested in the relationship, and if the writer makes it sexy or not is okay with me. (sexy is good!)

Second, as to why hetero women like slash, well there are probably as many answers to that as there are readers. One of my favorites is to compare it to what hetero men like. Obviously not all, but most of the straight men I know think that two women together is a huge turn on. I think there's some of that in slash. For a straight woman, what's better than one naked man? Why, two naked men, of course! Also, there's a whole different power dynamic between two men than between a man and a woman. That can be interesting to explore, and steps outside of the hetero woman's direct experience. Anyhow, there are many reasons. Just like there are many reasons why we like to whump the characters we love.

Then, as to actors and slash, in general there's wide variation in their responses. Many are put off by the very concept of the gay relationship and don't want to know anything about it. (And they should NEVER have it pushed in their faces by an obsessive fan. Ich!) Others are mildly amused. Some are even 'into' it. The actors in The Sentinel, for example, thought it was a kick and played it up, sneaking in extra hugs and kisses (which the producers mostly edited out.)

Personally I think (hope) that some day gender won't be an issue. Whether it is a same sex pairing or opposite sex pairing won't particularly matter. There'll be a little something for everyone, and live and let live.

I guess those who don't like slash in fan fiction are, against that kind of thing in real life, anyway. I don't care, one way or, the other as, I don't like censorship and, trying to get rid of a certain type of fan fic - is censorship.

Personally, I've not read any slash - not because, I don't like it but, because I've not got around to it reading any of it - YET.

There is as, "Joolz" says hopefully a time when gender issues of this kind won't matter anymore!!!

Censorship sucks.

I don't care about slash one way or the other, but I hate censorship.
