I got a response from a comment I left on an AO3 story (The Obituary Mambo by nigeltde) --not from the writer--that made me see red. I had to stop and vacuum the living room before I answered because I needed to step back from the raging ignorant way I wanted to respond.

This was the comment:

And it was nice treat to see bottom Dean.
Because its such a rare thing in this fandom right? It's not like 8 out of 10 stories are bottom dean, no, it must be a treat to read another bottom dean story since there is a shortage of bottom dean in this fandom. Rme.

I replied:

And it was nice treat to see bottom Dean.
Yup, it was, especially written by someone who knows how to write.
Why are you annoyed because it was a treat for me to read an excellently written bottom Dean fic? I don't choose what to read by sex positions, I choose to read depending on the writer's skill, and because there are a ton of fabulously talented bottom Sam writers, that's mostly what I read. So, yeah, it was a treat, and no, it's got nothing to do with your likes or dislikes. As for all these bottom Dean stories, how about links? I'd like to read some of these 8 out of 10 stories.

Was that comment even necessary? There are lots of things and pairings I really, really, very strongly don't like at all, but I don't feel the need to throw my two cents in. I hope I didn't come off as too confrontational because no one needs that shit in their comments, but I get tired of people telling other folks how to feel and what to like. There's a shit storm going on all around us, and fandom is my happy place, goddammit. If I have to watch what I say, or how I act, than how the fuck is that so? I'm sorry, I'm a big switch person--I don't care. It depends on the story who does what. And since Dean has never looked out of my TV screen and said, "roxy, I am gay/bi/totally straight--" He can be whatever I want him to be. Or you want him to be, or your cousin wants him to be….
