I might as well post something

Because I feel like bitching about this.

I'm on a community called RPS Challenge.

Now to me, RPS is Real People Slash.

But for some reason, the people who run the community (I don't know who they are) have said that it's okay to post het or slash.

I mean, shouldn't it be called RP*F* Challenge if so?

It really annoys me.

The same way people talking about gen lotrips (LOTR RPS) annoys me. If it's RP*S* it's slash. Lotrips came from the RPS - so it shouldn't be categorised as het or gen.

I'm sorry, but it annoys me when people do that. Slash is same-sex (canonical or not, I don't give a damn at this point) romantic/sexual interaction in a story. Het is opposite-sex romantic/sexual interaction in a story. Gen is a story in which the romantic elements are not important (a canon relationship may be mentioned, but it wouldn't be the focus, there might be non-canonical UST that also wouldn't be the focus).

So am I being strange for being annoyed about this?
