Quick question for the masses out there:

Would it throw you off in a fanmix created for a m/m ship if one of the songs referenced a woman in the lyrics? The song I've got is perfect - except that the male singer mentions that his love is a woman. It's not quite as bad as, say, American Woman, but it is clearly stated.

*shakes fist* More gender-neutral awesome love songs, musicians.

I've wondered that too, but my gut feeling is that most people wouldn't notice one reference in the lyrics.

Nope, it wouldn't throw me at all. I've got tons of songs for my OTPs that are a bit off, pronoun-wise.

It wouldn't throw me off, but I'm good at ignoring pronouns.

No, no, don't worry about it! In my personal playlists, I always use songs that end up referring to ladies, even though the fics are m/m.
