Excerpt: "'Fandom is a female space.' To a lot of slashers, this can seem like a foregone conclusion. It's a statement of unity. It's powerful. It's also mindbogglingly offensive. It makes invisible cis men, trans men, trans women and gender queer people in fandom. It's stake claiming, excluding, and it is harmful. It is every bit as harmful as those fanboys trying to kick the girls out of their clubhouse."
