A question for my cousins

We were discussing the early days of MUF slash and how some writers seemed to feel the need to make Illya very feminine, small, delicate, even weak. That is entirely their choice, but sparky955 made a comment that I couldn't answer.

Has other fandoms at the start of their slash phase found the need to feminize one of their OTP characters, such as Kirk or Spock?

What the feminization a reflection of the culture at that time or a natural progression of the maturity of the writers?
