i agree this isn't gen. maybe the intention for gen is there, but i just think that if at any point in my gen fic, im assualted with gay sex, it's not gen, no matter the circumstances.

I really have to ask if you'd feel the same way if it was straight sex. Because if you wouldn't, the problem is you.

You know, it's really easy to hide behind an anonymous tag and tell someone they have a problem if they don't want to read gay sex, but it's still wrong and uncalled for. This person is stating a simple fact that they don't consider a story with gay sex in it to be gen. I've been in fandom for 30 years and have read every conceivable rating and type of fanfic out there and I have to say that seeing a fic labeled as gen with a warning from the author saying it's explicit and has porn in it made me go "Huh?" Then to see that it was basically slash on top of that really threw me. I guess by the extremely broad definition the comm uses this could be considered gen, but it's not gen by any other fannish definition of gen I've ever heard.

But they were hiding behind an anonymous tag too? Calling yourself "assaulted by gay sex" by a story with a very clear header is obviously meant to be an inflammatory statement. Honestly, the first part of their comment doesn't even register, because it's so overshadowed by the obvious wankbait in the second part.

I can totally understand why someone wouldn't accept a story like that as gen, because it's a very widely contested term that means different things to different people, but there's really no need being an ass about it.
