It's so ridiculous when people warn for femslash in general and especially on an all femslash com. Do you warn for het? Warning: Straight people being straight. *facepalm*

Ridiculous

. . .dare I ask where?

I am still not over being annoyed at the time I got a review complaining about surprise!femslash in a story. I warn for things that need warning, people. Kissing is not one of those things.

Yeah, any time I see someone warning for generic kink or toys, the thought that runs through my head is ". . .you really have no idea about the extent of possibilities there, do you?"

Oh, for heaven's sake.

I actually have seen warnings for het. Usually by the same fifteen-year-olds (I assume) who also warn for sexytiems, though, so that's less surprising. But you'd have thought the pairing was adequate warning...

I fully admit that I used to warn for femslash. And some of my older disclaimers [I have one created for each fandom, for ease in setting them up more quickly] still have it listed. I really just need to go in and do a complete overhaul on all of my disclaimer docs one of these years...

I have one in my stock header, but I take it out or use it as needed.

Then again, I have had people [anonymously] bitch about how long and detailed my fic headers are, so...

Ugh. I used to warn for het, femslash, or slash, and then I realized that, well, everyone can look at the pairing and figure it out. It's so easy that way!

Agreed. Its so very annoying when people warn for fem- or boy- slash.
