This book looks at the history and the patterns of how lesbians are treated and removed from TV and movies. It covers in significant detail the fandom of Xena Warrior Princess and how the Xena TV show fans impacted fan fiction in general, fan interactions with the creators of TV shows, and Lesbian fiction. It explores how Xena fandom was one of the first internet fandoms and how it influenced internet interactions in subsequent shows. It is very pricey so ask your local library to buy it. It is a fascinating read because of it span and depth. it lays out with ample evidence its thesis that lesbians get offed in higher numbers than their peers and provides detailed analysis of what that all might mean. It also offers hope in tracking the beginnings of movements to eradicate this disturbing trope.
