One thing I don’t get at all is when people comment on my Amedot stuff just to say “I hate this ship but this drawing/AU is nice”.
Like…okay? Good for you?? I don’t give a shit???
Complimenting someone’s art of a ship you don’t like doesn’t necessarily warrant you expressing your deep hatred for the ship. Just say “This drawing is good” and move on.
It’s like going up to a person on the street and saying “Hey, I hate you, but those shoes are really nice”. It’s not a compliment, more like it’s just a confusing thing to say.
Like, you can hate the person or the ship all you want, but complimenting someone doesn’t require such hostility. Even if you don’t mean to come across as such, it’s still pretty needlessly hateful and aggressive to comment on something just to say you hate it.
Plus, if you don’t like the person, why are you talking to them? If you don’t like the ship, why are you looking at fanart for it? It just doesn’t make a lick of sense.
It costs $0.00 to ignore the things you don’t like. Learn how to blacklist tags and avoid certain blogs. Learn to politely ask people if they can tag the ship.
