Over at cassiopeia7's journal, they touched on the "ick, het!" predisposition amongst our fandom, and since I'm fandom-monogamous, I haven't a clue how other fandoms sway. I see this reflected in many of the small publishers I work for, as well.
And I'm curious, why is this? Why is it that woman (most of whom are heterosexual, I'm guessing) are so adverse to Het fic? Is it not wanting to feel competition with the female protagonist? Is it that it's tough to write great female characters?
Let's hear some yakkity-smack!
