Man, fandom meta wank really is the best kind, because it's all about articulating the heart in the best academic style. It's sort of like... dancing about architecture, I think. I made that up! No, really! Now, I'm not trying to minimize the issues involved or the discussion about them, because I'm happy to see people pondering the media representations of different generations of celebrity bands and how gender and sexuality play into them, and I wonder what the differences say about our definitions of implicit and explicit and text and subtext anymore, except I'm not really sure who I mean by "our," which is yet another in a series of reasons why meta pwns me daily. When it comes down to it, though, it seems like for a lot of people the discussion boils down to I love them; can't you SEE vs. Pssh, whatever, and that way lies sheer delight for wankahs madness, clearly. It's just, it makes me sad to see people lay themselves on the line and get stomped for it by h8trs, and then retreat into I CAN HAS OPINIONS, YOU KNOW, as though that means you can say anything and not get called on it, and did I say sad? Well... maybe I'm growing up a bit. I genuinely like all of the various people in the various factions associated with this latest wank. Still, I can't lie - I'm genuinely enjoying watching everybody get riled up. Caw!


In other words, which came first, the ♥ for the emo boys, or their outrageous and hilarious gay-acting? I would be interested to hear from those on my list into bandom. Is it the tongue-kissing on stage that drew you in, or was that just a wonderful lagniappe? Or does it have nothing to do with the gay play at all? Plz respnd with anecdotes and examples, the hotter the better. I'm not a bandom girl and likely won't be, because the music doesn't call me and none of those guys is particularly hot to me, except maybe that little Cameron Diaz-looking kid from US5 who got the drunk blowjob from his bandmate, little what's his name, but still, probably not. I just want to understand, man. Whence the love? Learn me.
