I got into both Voltron and Yuri on Ice this year, and it’s so weird that two fandoms can be so completely different from each other. The Voltron fandom nearly ruined the show for me, but the YOI fandom breathes life into me every time I log onto this hell site. They’re very different shows, of course, but the things they have in common–anime, or anime-style, older characters interacting with minors, and POC in leading roles–made me think they’d be reacted to in similar ways. Boy, was I wrong. I wonder why that is.
So, I have an American friend named Jane who married this English guy about 7 years ago. They live in Sussex together (god rest their souls), and they had a little boy pretty much right after they got married. As he grew up, they figured he would have a mix of their accents with a heavy lean towards English (because he’d go to school with English kids and teachers and the like.)
That’s not how it fucking worked out at all though. Instead, he says individual words with either an American or an English accent. Like, one second he’ll be like, “Daddy, I’m knackered” and the next he’ll be like, “AY YO MA WHERE YOU AT???” Every time they send me a video I just fucking piss myself listening to this kid.
“People with personality disorders are most likely abusive!!!” scream neurotypicals as they completely ignore the fact that many people develop personality disorders as a result of being abused themselves, and that their abusers are often neurotypical/ do not have personality disorders.
