Femslash and Intersectionality

Here's a very thoughtful essay about different forms of oppression, how they overlap, and how they may be subverted.  

I do this sort of thing quite often in my own work, where you'll see great diversity of sex/gender dynamics, relationships, religions, cultural motifs, colors and body types, etc.  Sometimes what I write is specifically about those things, but often it is not; the diversity has a high degree of background parity.  I run to the same tastes in leaving prompts for other creative folks, and for picking things to browse or buy.  

Bore me not with WASP everyman heroes.  I will tire of them quickly and fling them to bisexual anthropomorphic wolves who speak an invented language.
