(Poll) Buffy and Satsu

4th May 2010 (15:24)

So, I'm curious. Both the opinions given in this poll have been stated often in the last few weeks; I'd like to get some idea of how the numbers stack up on either side. If you feel my poll questions are way too restrictive and arbitrary, by all means tell me so in the comments.

I'm asking about the sexual relationship between the two women, but I've worded the question to include the build-up to it and the aftermath once they broke up as well. Also, I'm not asking about whether you enjoyed reading the story, but whether you thought it was credible and played a part in the overall season arc, or if it was just pure fanservice.

When a few people have answered I'll edit this post to look at how the answers and the demographics correlate. 

ETA: Updated Statistical analysis as of 19:50 on 4 May. I'll update again if and when more people answer the poll!

People who think the story was realistic include 43% of the women who are attracted to women, 67% of the heterosexual men, 33% of the other humans and 50% of the penguins.


No women who are attracted to women, no straight men, and no penguins thought the story was purely pandering to fanboys. 28% of the other humans thought it was.

(Everybody else went for the 'neither' option.).

As for now, I'm glad that 3.5 penguins enjoyed Batsu.

I heard about Batsu during Paleyfest 08 events and seeing SMG surprised that it wasn't Willow.

The more recent pengiuns to answer the poll have been voting for 'neither'. It's currently at 2 believable, 5 neither and 2 didn't pick an option at all.

It did amuse me that Sarah is possibly a secret Buffy/Willow 'shipper. ;-)
