Signal Boost: Why statistics are a canary in a coal mine, but nothing more

The comment on that post about how 95% of speaking roles are male and thus slash is inevitable. It reads:
"wouldn’t it be fair to say that hatred of women is still a factor - but on the creators part for giving us such little representation.

I also wanna see how different races and ethnicities affect the ships cause there’s is definitely a tendency to ship m/m if both the men are white. If one of them is a poc, the fandom tends to believe the ‘oh they are just friends’ narrative. But i would like to seem some real statistics about that"
Misogyny in the original source material is always a likely issue.

Fandom does ship a lot of white guys together, but we collectively spend a lot of time shaming slash fangirls while not complaining about the sea of white het. The m/m part of the equation isn’t meaningful: all of fandom ships a lot of white characters.
