ok hold the fuck up
honestly ive been away a few days but i am furious over what has happened today. im going to summarize what ive actually had saved in my drafts for weeks:
Firstly, to the people who are putting hate in the hetalia tag. Grow the FUCK up. How many years ago did we come to the understanding that was childish and overall a shitty thing to do. If you have a problem with a fandom, and don’t get me wrong Hetalia is problematic (as is every show you will ever see in your life) but if you must post an opinion judging those who enjoy it, let it circulate among your little gang of followers. Leave people who enjoy it to enjoy it, Hetalia is not hurting anyone.
Yes. Hetalia is not hurting anyone. There have been problems with offhand comments in Funimation’s Dub, but as a whole, Hetalia promotes world peace and is a positive influence on anyone who watches it. If certain people don’t have the common sense to know that aph Germany is not and never has been a nazi on the show or supports natzism within Hetalia (something I personally haven’t seen in years), then that’s not to do with Hetalia, that is a personal problem and they are not welcome in the fandom.
In fact, I would go as far to say that Hetalia destroys this stereotype and lets people see that in real life, Germany has a much richer and beautiful culture than Hitler and WW2.
I’m not going too much into this because from the outrageous behaviour I’ve seen so far, those who are stirring up trouble are here for drama and attention. They are bored and nazy kids with nothing better to do so I would urge everyone to ignore them and to not respond to the hate. We are better than this and we know that Hetalia isn’t and never has been about “praising” or romanticizing natzis, wars, world tragedies, racism, rape or anything of the sort.
i know a lot of people on my dash are very worried about gore in the tags and so on but ive been in there are there’s nothing. (although if you are very triggered maybe stay away to be on the safe side?) This is another 4chan-esque attack, baby fights. We have an incredibly accepting and beautiful fandom which I am very proud to be apart of, don’t let some whiney sobs ruin it for you. If you’re worried or if you want to question anything I’ve said here, my ask is open.
