Hey lil swimmers! This isn’t in response to any one specific event, but something that has been ongoing in this fandom that I think I should give my own two cents on.
Shipping is great. Shipping is wonderful. Its fun to take two characters and smush them together to see how they act. Its fun to get the doki dokis when two (or more actually for that matter) characters share a scene together. Its fun to overreact at the smallest hint of love in their mannerisms or what have you.
Shipping is fun.
Now, when you decide that for some reason, you are now superior because you ship a certain couple, and you take this as reasoning to bully, hate on, and/or belittle another person and their ship, that is when you make shipping a device for malice rather than fun.
And that is never ok.
Everyone has the right to ship whatever the hell they want, and you have no right to shit on their fun. It doesn’t matter if you don’t agree with them. It doesn’t matter what you think. They think those two characters are absolutely spiffy together! And the joy they derive from that is great!
Everyone here is bonded over there same love for a wonderful show about silly swimmers.
Respect one another.
Be nice to one another.
And for those who would verbally attack fellow fans and tear down their ships at any chance in order to have their couple ‘win the canon limelight’, just know, Admin Gay Sama is very disappointed in you.
