But if there is a separate category for same-sex pairings, then why does there need to be a warning? When venturing into the category, we know that all of the fics there are going to be same-sex, or have same-sex themes throughout the story. So, we already know. We don't need another 'warning'. I look at it as a warning. I know that there are people who want to know the contents of the story before they read it, but it is still warning the people who don't agree with slash or homosexuals. Although, if I look at it from a different point of view; think of Africans or whoever. They pierce themselves in what we would call terrible places, stretching their skin in their ears and lips. To most of us, we think, "Why in the world do they do that?" But that is what they believe is the right thing. So, I find myself very conflicted.

I don't think we should loose the warning. I think people should know what they are reading, so there should be a way of seeing this before you start the story. I also don't think the warnings are 'warnings', just something that tells me if the story is one I would like to read.
