Can anyone here think of an occasion when you saw someone on a geeky forum (like ours) have a rage fit when someone else brought up the subject of sex or sexuality? if you answer no to be honest I will pass out with shock or this must be your first time on the internet. fans can fly into rages over anything from the suggestion that there was a homosexual undertone to the lord of the rings trilogy or that there is anything rude about skin tight latex clad muscle bound buff men and super heroines in skimpy underwear numbers prowling the streets. It seems that what should be a healthy, natural and fun thing between consenting adults is seen as something open to criticism if portrayed in genre fiction Its not just fan reaction I heard batman creators introduced bat girl to undermine a suggestion that batman was the ultimate gay fantasy. Horror genre has gone the whole way and has a tradition of murdering any character which dares to enjoy sex. there is a the odd exception like say trueblood but most genre shows seem go down more star trek route of striving to be pretty asexual with most couples being almost a bit best friend or brother and sister like rather than rampant flirting couple. I know I am making some sweeping generalisations rather than strict factual based debate in these examples and I don't mean to offend. I just feel I have noticed this trend and I wonder if you have seen it too and if you agree why do you think these things are the way they are?
