I have this friend she's driving me crazy. Any pair that opposes her ship she despises since it insults one of the two. And the one she hates is the most is my OTP and she's never silent about that. I can't even reblog things in this fandom she hates without a lecture how it insults and degrade her. She even told me to consume in secret She hates everything I like but I'm supposed to see her way and like what she likes and i can't take it. i just wanted to vent where she couldn't see
vent away, anon.
nothing wrong with having personal tastes but it sounds like she can’t handle other people having personal tastes that are different from her own. she’s a ship war soldier in the making.
(seriously though: other people having opinions doesn’t infringe on your right to have your own opinions. but I find it interesting that there’s something about the ability to reblog content that’s made ‘other people having (different) opinions’ feel weirdly pressuring.
I think it’s the fact that anyone who disagrees with you could reblog your post and argue with you/add stuff you disagree with whether you like it or not, and then you get to see all the notes of people agreeing with the person who disagreed with you. that can feel so uncomfortable or even painful. it’s like your own content isn’t your own … which, of course, it isn’t. that’s how tumblr works.)
