Fandom Really Is Serious Business!  
Somebody (actually, two people) have conducted a scientific, statistical analysis of relative penis shape and other genital characteristics in Harry/Draco fan fiction. There are tables! There are graphs! There are Chi-Square analyses!

The question, then is whether the authors wrote this piece for an actual university program (if so, where is it, and how do I apply?!) or whether they simply had waaaaaaaaay too much time on their hands.

If anyone's looking for me, you can find me hiding in my closet and waiting for the world to go splodey.

Fandom is a very, very weird place. Where did you even find this piece of erm, study? Apparently, written by a Professor? I sure do hope that is not just a fandom nickname this person has online, but a title per se.

I love your Draco icon. Tom Felton. :P

From daily_snitch. I just subscribed.

I think the professorial titles have to be fake (I mean, "Chair of Magi-Political Studies" and "Pirate Queen-in-Residence at the Royal Veela Institute"?!), but I do think it's possible that it's a real academic paper, perhaps for some sort of English literature, pop culture/Western civilization, or gender studies department.

Tom Felton is most definitely a hottie. But I'm already engaged to Dan Radclife, so he's yours if you want him!
