I don't really think the slash itself--whether it be creating slash fan-product or just looking with slashy-colored glasses--is necessarily subversive in any way.

It can be, depending on the attitudes/intentions/actions of the person(s) involved, but it can also not.

Ditto actual gay outness FWIW.

Interesting. I think slash can be subversive, as I explain in the next post. But I think being out in a heterosexist society is always subversive. Which is not to say that our intent in being out is always to subvert. Sometimes it is but more often we're just living our lives. Still, I think the effect is always a subversive one.
