Even though Deadspin seems to think, foolishly, that the jockeys are the actual object of desire in this calendar, any true Supernatural fan will understand (as we do, by proxy) that the true beauty of this thing is the symphony of desires that is a horse and a man.

(Also, can we address how deeply fucking weird it is to have our so-called erotic fan fiction so mainstream that fucking Deadspin is talking about it? Is it not bad enough that Time Magazine decided to traumatize me for life by writing about it so that it stared up at me from every newsstand in the universe.)

Actually I fucking loved that article (the Time one). Yeah, slash is traditionally an underground sort of thing, but I think that's going to change no matter what we do. In the past year I've seen more discussion of fandom by people outside of fandom than I've seen before, ever. And, honestly, that doesn't bother me. I think it's time to come out of the closet, so to speak. What does bother me is that the majority of the media coverage has treated us like some sort of bizarre alien species, which this article didn't. The author actually addressed some of the reasons why we do what we do, instead of just saying, look everybody, aren't these people weird?
