A lot of ships I see on Tumblr include homosexual males. Steve Rogers and Tony Stark. Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. Spider-Man and Deadpool (this is a thing, right?). Batman and Nightwing. The list goes on . . .
Anyway, I’m noticing a lack of women in this. My question to the world (but mostly Shippers) is thus: Given a television show with two close, main female characters, would they be shipped just as hard as two men in a similar role?
I shall facilitate a discussion in the comments. GO!
