And I think I was just saying the other week that it's been a while since fandom proper (rather than SFF publishing & the like) had a massive racefail.

Wow, that's My laptop was dead, so I didn't get a chance to look at the J2 Big Bangs this morning. I am glad to know I can safely skip this one. Wow.

She has apologized. Sort of. She's not racist, ashamed, or taking it down, but she's sorry she offended people. Well, that takes care of that, then!

I have to confess, I was so full of white privilege that I was on the "clueless asshat" side the last time J2 fandom did this. But I think even me-from-that-era would recognize how incredibly, incredibly racist this is.

I thought it had gotten as problematic as it could in J2 when I read Jensen and Jared as samurais -- while keeping their names O_o -- but then the Cambodian fic happened, and then the pan-African one happened. But this! The scale of this one is still mind-boggling to me.

Thanks for the signal boost--I passed it on to my Twitter feed. Someday maybe people will, you know, THINK before doing this kind of thing. At the very least, about the criticism and anger that they'll have to deal with, if not about, you know, human dignity and consideration.

(I mean, everyone fucks up. But how do you write a whole Big Bang story--eighty fucking thousand words--without you or your beta(s) ever going, "oh, hey, um. We might want to rethink this"? Yes, yes: white privilege. But JFC.)

I still don't understand how none of the people who betaed for her said, "hey, wait up, let's think a minute here." And I really, REALLY don't understand why the artist thought using real images was okay.

And I wish the apology had shown more understanding of the problems that wee pointed out to her.

As a black girl, I'm not super OMG!!!111!!!offended by this but this is just the stupidest thing anybody could do imho. 8\ I haven't read any of the fic (besides like the first paragraph, and I will admit that I'll put it in memories for later to read because it seems interesting to read for a rainy day) and the art is pretty gorgeous, but the whole idea is just... wow.

Doing something like this (even unintentionally) is really stupid, but I don't think that she deserves as much hate as she got in her comments. Sending a message or something would be more productive than attacking a writer in a public domain. /thoughts on yaoi

I tried reading the excerpts. I did. I got about a quarter of the way through them before just...not being able to read anymore. I'd say it astounds me how someone could be so willfully blind, but you know, Supernatural itself is a damn good example.

Just, ugh (also the misogynistic language showing up in some of those comments and the 'she deserved it' reasoning? ugh)

Considering this keeps happening in spn_j2_bigbang, it might be time for people to start PMing the mods and have them enforce a rule about "Don't exploit tragedies" and "Stop exploiting PoC cultures" and, hell, everything listed above for the next round of BB. I know I'm going to add this rule for [community profile] chromaticvision to cut it off before it ever starts.
