I have noticed that the "depiction = endorsement," and its extensions into "writing/enjoying rapefic = being pro rape" and similar themes, is exclusively tied into sex.

Nobody says murder mystery authors and readers are pro-murder. Nobody says that prison stories indicate a pro-crime stance, even when the stories are about prisoners finding hope and friendship in harsh circumstances. Nobody says that those who write and read about epidemics are pro-disease. But once you're thinking about fictional sex, the accusation is that the sex you want to think about is the sex you want to happen in the real world.

While I can make a coherent case for the value of "bad" ships, of disturbing content that moves well beyond "kinky" in fic... I shouldn't have to. Fans of other genres don't face this kind of public outcry when they enjoy stories about "dark" content, whether that's external tragedies or interpersonal atrocities.
