I just crunched a ton of numbers for a discussion over at [community profile] writingthewall, an RPF meta comm. In the name of not wasting effort, I'm copying them here. No argument to go with, just hard data.

This is a list of all the pairing and character tags that have appeared on the newskink delicious more than once as of 2011/06/26, followed by breakdowns based on race and gender. Totals are calculated based on the original genders (and, in the case of Yonatan, race) of the people involved, whether or not that was altered within the fic.

*One of these features Stephen in drag; it's also tagged as Stephen, so I didn't count it twice in either the Stephen total or the white-men total. The other is Raven as Raven, and counted in the Stephen total and the white-women total.

White men: 534
White women: 113
POC men: 29
