On the struggle of slash fans for acceptance and historical fandom policing:
[Rachel]: It's also interesting to note that in the more general zines, how you say that slash fandom was justifying its existence. I noted that fandom hasn't really changed. Like, yes, we, we accept slash's existence now without uh, for the most part, without question. But there are still fans are still justifying certain things that. Well, I don't know what I'm saying here.
[Monica]:I do. I've read so many of these arguments that yeah, no one's going to say broadly, people shouldn't write slash, but there's still lots of arguments about when it's OK to write slash, who it's ....like who's OK writing slash, is that what you were saying?
[Rachel]: What types of things like, um, just in shipping in general, who you can ship, how you can ship, what types of stories you can write. The purity brigade on Tumblr is very strict about what you can write. And so there's been a lot of fighting in fandom trying to combat that harmful attitudes. It's just interesting to see these that while the subject of these fights change, these are still going on.[Jen]: There's always boundary drawing. There's always fights. And I know I got into fandom in an era and in a fandom where the fights about whether or not you were allowed to write slash in the first place were still happening. I was in Newsies fandom and that was split very, very clearly between people who wanted to ship the male characters and the people who just wanted to write stories with original female characters, romancing the male characters. And there are a lot of fights between those two factions and that was the mid 2000s, so it wasn't that long ago and you still see a lot of fights today over whether or not RPF should exist. And Real Person Fiction was something that was happening even then.
