Please go be bored and obnoxious somewhere else, and let people vent in the venting thread in peace.

Again, what about venting in a venting thread on an anonmeme so that they don't have to deal with their SidGeno shipper friends going "HDU!!!" seems like a special snowflake? Like, I'm sure you have a lot of new and interesting contributions to make to the world in and out of namespace, but I think you're being pretty ungenerous here.

AYRT (yes i am the special snowflake)

It's because I try not to be super wanky in namespace? That is literally the point of posting stuff here! And because even if these are common criticisms they are actually pretty legitimately damaging to real life people who are gay/bi/lesbian because of stereotyping. It doesn't seem like a big deal but I've been asked if I'm more femme or butch enough times to want to tear my hair out.

They might be new enough to the fandom or surrounded by enough S/G shippers that they haven't seen the criticisms, though. If they want to vent, let them vent.

The bottom geno thing has been talked about here before and I think it's more about one person with a lot of followers promoting it (like saying the thing you quoted) than actually a common attitude - I mean the attitude where one character can't top or bottom because these people feel it would be OOC.

Attaching top/bottom roles to pairings is so common though in pretty much all pairings and something I dislike, I rarely start reading a fic that's tagged with who bottoms out tops unless it's a pwp, then it's much more understandable.

Yeah I'm kind of new to meme and fandom. I've been into hockey for a long time but just got into fandom last season. I didn't realize it was such a common criticism, but in all seriousness my kingdom for more switching.

That's the point.

Currently trying to decide if I can do both this and Rarepair Fest when it opens up. Really liking some of the pairings that have been nominated so far.

You can't give Jamie Benn credit for Jim Nill committing multiple accounts of highway robbery.

Fuck, I get flack from other girls who are into girls because I'm not really femme or butch and my personal style is sort of halfway between the two (very long hair, lots of feminine jewelry, many cardigans, no make-up ever, hatred of skirts and dresses to the point that if I was getting married I'd wear a suit, heels are the devil, etc). That is not something you just get from people that don't fall under the queer umbrella.

For a minute, I forgot that Caggiula's first name was Drake and thought you were shipping McDavid with the artist in an AU. I was surprisingly on board with it. In fact, I kind of want it now.

Re: Fandom Venting

na

I'm into girls, too, and except for the skirts part - I love skirts - and having only shoulder-length hair, this exactly describes me. *fistbump of solidarity*

Re: Kinkmeme Discussion

From: (Anonymous)
Friedman tweeted earlier today that Canucks fans had filled "Drake's" mentions with hatetweets, and I was like, "What on earth did Drake do to piss off hockey people??"

But Benn got the Art Ross the year they missed, so I really doubt he was the difference that got them in this year.

I ship it like burning and would sell my soul for more bottom geno tbh.

I keep confusing Caggiula with Caligula, so Canadians Named Drake confusion is probably the lesser evil, lol.

+1

And more Geno-centric Sid/Geno (which tends to come with the bottoming, for whatever weird fandom reason that is *waves hands*).

Also more Sid/Geno that includes more of the team. I'm sad oflights doesn't seem to be writing much of the pairing anymore, because she always did a good job with the supporting cast. downjune, too, although she seems more into other Pens pairings these days than Sid/Geno. And withershins tends to give cameos to a lot of secondary Pens.

You aren't wrong! I also tend to get it a lot from other more femme-ish girls who expect me to date/be into butch girls because I'm shorter and wear a lot of makeup and skirts (love me some flannels, though, super comfy, and long hair is the WORST when it's thick like mine).

It's just that in fandom (not specifically hockey), I notice it a lot more from straight people because there tends to be a lot of fetishization of dudes who are into dudes specifically. And because these people have only been in straight relationships, they kind of... apply the dynamic to queer relationships.
