If it were me, I'd have a tag for all of the above. Yes, most of the pairings are m/m, but you won't do any harm by throwing an m/m (or slash or yaoi or whatever) tag on most of the fills. And I definitely think it would be good to have a tag for het and f/f, just since they are so rare in this fandom and some people will definitely want to seek them out.

So in short: yes, and go ahead and why not add a slash tag too?

Thank you.

I'll start using them right now and then I'll go back and re-tag the ones I already have. What terminoly would be clearer: m/m, m/f, f/f or slash, het, femslash?

Either would be fine, I would think, but personally I'd probably go with slash, het, femslash, just 'cause some consider the / to indicate top/bottom, and then you run into the awkward question of whether you should label things like femdom or pegging are really m/f, they might be more f/m, you know?

Really it wouldn't matter; you can establish it as a convention of your index that all het goes under m/f, regardless of the power dynamic in play or who's getting penetrated... but using the slash, het, femslash labels avoids the problem. My 2cents anyway! :)

That makes sense. I keep forgetting that "/" represents who tops for some people.

You've been of great help, thank you
