keep on poppin' that shit you poppin'

So I saw the fan fiction personality test on my flist earlier today, and went to take it (I take online tests for all sorts of things pretty much daily; I just grew out of compulsively sharing the results in my LJ >.>)

And then I got to question 16.

Shonen-ai, Lolicon, Mpreg, Slash and such are…
- Words that don't make much sense to me.
- Exactly my kind of thing.
- A shame for any fandom.
- Not my thing, but to each their own.

YEAH BECAUSE THESE THINGS ARE ALL EXACTLY THE FUCKING SAME AND THUS CAN BE JUDGED ON THE SAME SCALE. "SLASH, LOLICON, MPREG AND SUCH" WTF WTF OMG SO VERY WRONG ON THE INTERNET >:|

Later on in the quiz, I also came across this shining diamond: Slash - What does it have to do with canon if "everyone woke up and was gay"? (this was one of the answer choices for a "what won't you write?" question).

What. The. Actual. Fuck.

Dear quiz author: LURK MOAR.

[tangential ranting]This kind of cluelessness is why we still have people warning for slash (or m/m, yaoi, gay sex, gayness, gay relationships, etc).

THESE THINGS DO NOT MERIT A WARNING BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING ACTUALLY WRONG WITH THEM, AND THEY ARE NOT, I REPEAT, NOT POTENTIALLY OFFENSIVE IN ANY WAY. ANYONE ACTUALLY -OFFENDED- OR -DISTURBED- BY THE EXISTENCE OF GAY RELATIONSHIPS IN A FIC IS A FUCKING BIGOT WHO NEEDS TO DIE IN A FIRE YESTERDAY. THOSE FROM THE -WE-AIN'T-BIGOTS-WE-JUST-DON'T-LIKE-SLASH- CONTINGENT ARE HOPEFULLY SMART ENOUGH TO GET A CLUE FROM THE LISTED PAIRING THAT IT'S SLASH. OR YOU CAN JUST LABEL THE FIC AS SLASH IN YOUR TAGS OR UNDER GENRE: THAT'S NOT OFFENSIVE. WARNING FOR SLASH IS. WE ARE IN THE SECOND DECADE OF TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY, FFS. [/tangential ranting]

So, what's the most ridiculously untrue thing you've seen someone (allegedly) in fandom say about fandom, lately?
