  • Something that makes one feel uncomfortable or grossed out.
    There's a lot of weird hang-ups around masculinity that often boils down to any sort of male intimacy or vulnerability [in fiction] being read as "gay." That's a whole other kettle of fish that I won't get into here, but basically, people insisting their slash is real tends to tell me more about the fan than the creator. Plus you have all the additional skeeve of the phenomenon I mentioned earlier.
