There was this guy, who tried to explain, with the very best of intentions, what the female gaze might be, in relation to this form of smut we call "Slash." He wanted to say that women, even when they are looking at two men getting down and dirty with each other, look at those men in a different way than gay men do. His explanation was a heavily qualified success– I mean, he gets it, but. Kinda not. many OMGFAIILFTW moments here.
In the course of the convo, someone named notrafficlights used the phrase "Homemade pornography." And ithiliana liked it so much, she made herself an icon; And I think that’s just the best idea!
This is mine. The background is a screenshot of my own text, from "Jessamine". I hope to see other people’s versions, against tbackgrounds of their own art, text, whatever. I’ll make them if my friends have no graphics programs.
Because when I think about it– homemade porn is what I’ve always done.
