This is my very late entry for Pod Aware Day 1 - The History of Podfic

Podfic has a long and varied history, check out pod_aware on DW, LJ or Tumblr to hear some personal accounts of podfic history.

I'm a femslasher, so that's all I know to talk about.... listening to femslash podfics.
I'm also not a native speaker, so if anything sounds off, please assume it's my bad language skills, not bad manners... :)

“And yet fanfiction is an inherently transformative work which, by its very nature, strives to address or change some flaw that exists in canon, even if that flaw is “why isn’t there more of this thing?!” Fanfiction has addressed the lack of gay men by making straight characters gay; it’s addressed countless cultural misappropriations with wildly varying AUs; it’s addressed canon plot holes and timeline issues with fix-it fics and crossovers. Fanfic is the show your show could be like, if only you dared to dream.

But for all its transformative nature, fanfiction and fandom still suffer from a real dearth of femslash. Beyond the simple fact that very few girls exist in canon materials, the societal emphasis on the male gaze seems to have affected fanficcers’ creativity to such an extent that even in our own fantasies, we cannot give women a fair shake. Just as the answer to “Why is there so much slash?” cannot be boiled down to “ Well, straight girls are horny”, the answer to “Why isn’t there any femslash?” cannot be boiled down to “Well, straight girls don’t care.” The bias against female characters and female pleasure is an ingrained, institutionalized problem which won’t go away on its own."

— Conclusion of Lady Geek Girl and Friends’s fascinating article on femslash and fandom
