Again, calm down.

If you don't like it or don't want to see it, then don't look for it.
Yeah...everytime. It happens to me every time. But what can I do?

Ignore it, and let those people who want to do those things do it. Nobody has to talk about it if they don't want to.

Besides, if people really wanted to, they'd write those fanfics anyway. Doesn't matter whether the character's straight or gay. So quit your whining, no one wants to hear it.

Sorry for flipping out, but that seriously pisses me off. But yes, let's drop it. Arguments like this never end well.

It's his business what he makes his characters act like. And lesbianism is not 'filthy', so let's quit with the slurs, k? You might offend people on here. Actually, you've already offended me.

  I really don't care when people have different beliefs, but if you're going to shove it in other people's faces and insult their beliefs. Then I care.

Let's just get back on topic........  I'm gonna get mad  >:(

Okay so I'm thinking that there was probably serious homophobia back then.  I mean, if people thought fabrications were "godless", they might have had the same opinion on homosexuality.  Just a theory because I can't find anything on it.

Gak. Any form of intolerance makes me angry.

Speaking of 'filthy' fic, I hope she never finds out about slash fic. *whistles*
