Why straight women love slash?

Straight woman explains why she enjoys and writes yaoi (boys love) comics.

The link to this article was posted to a comics mailing list I'm on; I've only had a chance to briefly skim over it, but it looks like there are some interesting observations there.

What I'm wondering is whether hers is a pretty unique point of view, whether it's common and I've just missed it, or somewhere in between, and whether this is a possible explanation for why so many straight women enjoy reading and writing fanfic slash. Anyone want to chime in with your thoughts?
