Consciousness-raising in a child abuse flame war over fan fiction
A flame war over depictions of child abuse in a fan fiction competition based on The L Word television series (Showtime,2004-09) provided an opportunity for feminists and others to deliberate over the issue of child abuse. Various tactics were used,including storytelling and the narration of intimate and personal stories of abuse,as well as more confrontational and personally derisive tactics. The flame war revealed taken-for-granted assumptions in a forum based on a lesbian-centred series.
