okay voltron fandom, let’s chill the fuck out.
im TOTALLY against shipping paedophilia. don’t get me wrong here. paedo ships are disgusting and shouldn’t be shipped, because they can actually harm people in real life.
however, sh//aladin IS NOT paedophilia, and if you give me a couple damn minutes, I’ll tell you why.
shiro’s voice actor said that shiro is 25 and this has been widely accepted as canon, but here’s the thing. VAs don’t get to decide things like that about their character, all that they get to do is act.
dreamworks said “five unsuspecting teenagers” in the show description. what dreamworks says will always outweigh what the VAs say. dreamworks has placed shiro’s age at 19 at the oldest.
if my memory is right, the wiki says that shiro’s age is unknown, which is accurate. all we know is that he is a teenager, and he’s probably above 18, I think we can all agree on that.
the other paladins, excluding pidge, are all in their late teens, according the wiki. this is probably 17/18/19, maybe 16 but probably not. a 18/19 year old dating a 17 year old may still legally be paedophilia, but the 17 year old would be so damn close be being a legal adult.
pidge is a different story, however, as she’s 14, i think. that’s actually paedophilia, and she is not included in this. im mainly referring to sh/eith, sh/ance, and sh/unk.
short summary: it is canon that shiro is actually a teenager, and so is hunk, keith, and lance. stop calling ships paedophilia when they aren’t.(ill add sources later bc im on my phone rn and i can’t shrug)
