Follow us on Twitter or Tumblr, and if you’re interested in supporting our work, please consider donating to our Patreon.] People say a lot of things about fanfiction readers. Three common ideas: they’re just interested in happily ever afters; they’re just interested in gay porn; they’re just interested in radical queer reinterpretation of the Western canon and won’t take no for an answer. All of these things probably have some kernel of truth to them. And naturally, we can see what individual stories people like most: which ones have the most views, the most comments, and the most kudos. Over the past month or so, Fansplaining has run a survey of fanfiction readers, asking them what tropes and themes they particularly like and dislike. Where do our respondents find their fanfic? Like romance novels, most fanfic archives organize stories based on the genders of characters that are romantically involved.

The History of Pornography No More Prudish Than the Present

As it turns out, modern times have got nothing on the past. Pornography existed long before video or even photography, and many researchers think evolution predisposed humans for visual arousal (It's a lot easier to pass on your genes if the sight of other naked humans turns you on, after all). Whichever way you slice it, the diversity of pornographic materials throughout history suggests that human beings have always been interested in images of sex.

No Future: Queer Theory and the Death Drive

Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2004, $21.95. Recent accounts of lesbian and gay cultures in the popular press are remarkable for their investment in ideological categories familiar to readers of domestic fiction. More often than not, reports of same-sex relations describe domestic unions formally consecrated by secular and religious authorities and blessed by offspring—unions, in other words, comforting in their very familiarity and palatable to, perhaps due to their reflection of, bourgeois culture's ego ideal.

With No Future: Queer Theory and the Death Drive, Lee Edelman offers a fierce corrective to this narrative, arguing that our very conception of the "political" is shaped by a presumption of "reproductive futurism" embodied in figures of childhood innocence.

Sexual Assault

For sexual activity to be all right, it must be consensual, which means that both people want it to happen. Sexual assault is when any person forces you to participate in a sexual act when you don’t want to. This can include touching or penetrating the vagina, mouth, or anus of the victim (often called rape); touching the penis of the victim; or forcing the victim to touch the attacker’s vagina, penis, or anus. Touching can mean with a hand, finger, mouth, penis, or just about anything else, including objects. It doesn’t always take physical force to sexually assault a victim. Most victims are assaulted by someone they know: a friend, date, acquaintance, or boyfriend or girlfriend. Most perpetrators of sexual assault are male, whether the victim is female or male. Sometimes people will use manipulation to get someone to give into sex. Tennessee Statutory Rape Laws.
