Lemme think, Spike, Big Macintosh, Mr. Cake (married), Snips and Snails (repulsive).

Yeah not many options.

hey, I'm rooting for Snips and Snails. Not everybody gets to be one of the beautiful people, y'know. (Snails and Twist... the adorkable duo.)

But that said--- there are quite a few recurring background male characters.....who get shipped as gay. Usually with Macintosh.

Hasn't got a thing to do with insufficient male characters, never did.

It's fan boys. The fan girls are mostly the ones that write the gay male stories. I hate fan girls of Transformer, Ill be half way into a fan fiction then suddenly everybot is gay.

Now that's interesting to me, because I've never met a woman who thought that two guys making out was actually sexy. I've asked too, often. I figured if a lot of guys liked to watch girl-girl stuff, then it stood to reason that the opposite was true. So far...not so much.

Little from column A, little from column B. I ask women I hang out with, and I'm an avid dungeons and dragons player in the armed forces. Gives me a wide demographic.

Hmmm...most of the cases that I come across it's chicks making everyone gay. Who knows? Maybe they are lying about gender.

It wouldn't be the first time guys posed as women on the internet...

I'll admit that though my findings thus far have been very one-sided, my "sample size" is only in the dozens. I suggest polling people you know.

The people I know don't write fan fiction, and the people online I know write straight fan fiction cause I don't read gay stuff if I can help it, some people dont warn you tho.

I'm going to actually back this guy. Enough voice chat, conventions attended, and plethora of known nerdy style girls, proven girls. There is a very large segment of women doing male/male pairings. Hetero women in point of fact. To which I attribute to the same design that was mentioned before. Sandwich.

According to Cracked, gay(male) porn sells like hotcakes to middle aged women and there is a reason that there is a trope called Yaoi Fangirl- it happens more often than you'd think.

Yaoi fangirls. They exist.

You know, guys who write lesbian fanfics seem oblivious to the fact that women would find girl-on-girl action as gross as men find guy-on-guy action.
