looking like a fool with your pants on the ground

0001 - longleggedgit raised a fascinating point about women in movies -- please go and have a look (and leave a comment if you can think of films that meet the criteria she sets out!).

0010 - I'd discussed a while back that warning for m/m or slash or yaoi or gay is not the least bit groovy, and I'm wondering about something. In lieu of the TGIF poll from last Friday (I worked Saturday, so there was no TGIF for me :P):

ETA: I know that yaoi and slash are not the same thing, but I don't think the majority of people who issue "slash" warnings do, so I tend to assume that when people warn for yaoi, they're actually warning for gay content.

Poll #1513693 Slash warnings in communities

If you see repeated warnings for "slash" or "gay" or "yaoi" or "m/m" in a particular general-fandom (i.e. not slash-centric) LiveJournal community you follow, you:

Speak to each poster individually to let them know their warning has made you uncomfortable and request that they remove it and not warn for gay/slash/yaoi in the future - in the comments to the entry.

Do nothing; the warnings are offensive, but fandom isn't a safe space.
13(25.0%)
Do nothing; such warnings don't make you uncomfortable.
