I hate it when people respond to fandom drama with “why can’t we all just be friends?” Fuck off, I have no interest in being friends with someone who considers queer representation to be ‘disrespectful to the canon’ (a canon, might I add, that queer literary critics have been studying for decades).

"A survey of 11-to-14 year-olds found:
· 51% of the boys and 41% of the girls said forced sex was acceptable if the boy, “spent a lot of money” on the girl;
· 31% of the boys and 32% of the girls said it was acceptable for a man to rape a woman with past sexual experience;
· 87% of boys and 79% of girls said sexual assault was acceptable if the man and the woman were married;
· 65% of the boys and 47% of the girls said it was acceptable for a boy to rape a girl if they had been dating for more than six months."
