Baby slash fan?

The president of our synagogue is a friend of ours, and is also a Star Trek fan. He told my husband this story yesterday in shul.

He was watching a tape of classic Trek with his 3.5 year old daughter. As characters came on the screen, he asked her who they were. "Who's that?" "Captain Kirk." "Who's the blue guy?" "Mr. Spock." You know, that sort of thing.

This being a classic Trek, and Kirk being Kirk, the inevitable happened during the episode.

"Daddy, why is he (Kirk) kissing her?"

"Because he loves her."

"But I thought he was in love with blue guy!"

...

Our friend says he immediately thought of me. And, "Maybe it's something that women can innately perceive." However, as far as I know, he didn't ask his wife about that.

You know - I figure *I* was born this way, so why not her?

Some were born with slash goggles, some acquire it and some are blindsided by them.

I still don't have any, I suspect. I like to write slash, though not as much as het (or femmeslash) but usually it isn't because I see it, just because I feel like writing it and I think I can make it work. And often it involves odd pairings, not the ones everybody sees, but that's the same with anything I write.

And I can still watch Star Trek without seeing Kirk/Spock all over the place. (Maybe a little, and some Spock/McCoy, yeah, but I still ship Spock/Chapel het, don't kill me.)

Occasionally I do see it, such as with Jet and Spike in Cowboy Bebop. But even the yaoi fans start backing away slowly when I say that, and I'm not sure why. Maybe I'm just weird.

Slash goggles are not, and should not be, universal equipment.
