What is this conversation? "Invading the privacy" of fictional characters? So it's morally objectionable now to read a story with sex or bathing in it because the imaginary people in the story will feel bad?

I don't understand the world anymore.

If you have a trope that relies on a character being portrayed as vulnerable and helpless in a way that's implicitly erotic - which is AYRT's argument - and where that trope is consistently used with female subjects much more than male subjects, then yeah, I think there's something negative about that trope and the associations it engenders. Not because it's unfair to the fictional characters involved but because of what it implies about how we, socially, see the world, tell stories about the world, and ultimately understand the world.

I don't know where this idea that anyone is concerned about the privacy of fictional characters comes from. It is a frankly fucking ludicrous strawman. It's extraordinary and baffling in the extreme.
