The death of a minor supporting character on a tiny CW show set of a huge discussion about the representation of the LBGTQ community on TV, and this caught most people by surprise. Yet here we are, a month after The 100 aired the inciting incident, still talking about it. What’s keeping this discussion going? In part, it’s thanks to a little-noticed fandom that has become a major player online. The story of the Lexa protest is in part the coming to prominence of “femslash” fandom.
