Don't back that Kickstarter for a short film about slash fandom, because it's co-written and edited by Franzeska Dickson, who is not a person to be given a platform to talk about race in fandom.

Twitter threads: one, two, or I could just say "wrote that digustingly racist 16k meta (AO3-locked) last year", and a lot of you will know what I mean. Note that the second threads has screencap excerpts of the meta.

I SAW THAT and I was like "oookaaaaayyy...hey, well, maybe she's come around" but I guess not?

I met Franzeska at a teensy little con a few years ago (Con*Strict) and thought she was cool. Several months later, she posted That Fucking Thing and I was o_O. We were both attending the same con again last year. I needed a ride from the airport and she offered so I took her up on it and used the time as an opportunity to ask her in person about it and how she felt about the complaints, if she was going to write a response of anything she'd learned, etc. Instead, she basically just complained about all the people who'd attacked her and how she was still right, that her detractors were trying to tear her down, and that she was very knowledgeable about fandom and fandom history, etc., and had all the data on her side.

And now this? Yikes.

Yeah, I know. It makes me sad. But, maybe she's been talking to black fandom and working out her issues and it'll all be great! I always enjoy being pleasantly surprised.
