(and any other bashers that target Rivamika, Erumin or any other ships that involve a pairing with an “underage” character)
This girl, Charle, is 15 years old. She’s from the spin off manga Shingeki no Kyojin: Before the Fall
As you can see by the panel above, her father is taking proposals for an arranged marriage.
This confirms that within the walls, the age of consent is 15. You are allowed to get married and most likely have children at this age, meaning it’s socially acceptable for a 15 year old to get married and have a healthy sexual life and even start a family.
So to the people who like to harass the Ereri shippers just because it’s illegal in your region, stop being so ignorant and discriminative about other cultural norms. Educate yourself and stop assuming that the age of consent is 18 everywhere, because it certainly is not. To prove this, take a look at this:
Overall, having to be 18 years old is actually in the minority. Many countries (including Europe where this story likely takes place) sees 15-16 year olds in mutual relationships as socially acceptable. If you still aren’t convinced by hard facts, than all I can say is that in the SnK world, 15 is indeed the age of consent and it is not a crime for people of this age to get married and start a family. Now stop harassing the shippers just because you’re ignorant and can’t personally tolerate other cultural norms. It is not our problem that you are xenophobic and can’t accept other countries jurisdictions.
Now take this information and suck on it.
