What a vile, badly researched article.

Looks like the author has got quite a hang up about sex.

Yes, the focus on sex really wasn't useful, neither were the several factual inacuracies, and vast sweeping generalisations.

This is the kind of thing behind my refusal to read fanfic at Writers' Club, and the fact that I've only told a few people at the club who I know understand it.

I hate the way the bloody article just reinforces all the prejudices that still make fanfic writers feel like pariahs!
