how are people justifying that f!handers is inherently abusive lmao??? like i literally mean how are people doing it i've not seen it before but i don't put it past people
So I’m gonna explain the issues between the fhanders and mhanders fandoms now, because this is not new.
1. If you look at old fhanders fics, they are all abusive and terrible for the most part, a lot of ‘fix it’ fics where Anders is ‘cured’ of Justice and all his mental illnesses too.
2. old fhanders fandom used to do this to mhawke posts: http://arwingyoshi.tumblr.com/post/159663659062/i-got-a-why-is-dude-hawke-so-popular-tag-am-i
3. However, mhanders people have said he should “basically be gay” because of how much better in game he responds to mhawke than fhawke, but this is only because of hepler’s writing. Which I’m not even saying Anders should be counted as canonically sexist anymore, because Sebastian also says some sexist things in game, so basically Hepler should never be allowed to write men, because they always turn out sexist in her writing. However, this does not make Anders less bi and the mhanders fandom needs to stop.
4. I’ve seen accusations of ‘you’re misogynistic because you prefer mhawke’, or ‘you’re homophobic if you prefer fhawke’ thrown around from both sides of the fandom. My opinion: you’re biphobic if you say any of these things, and Anders is BI regardless.
The fandom has been splintered for a VERY long time, I am only now truly trusting parts of the fhanders fandom because I’ve been around this fandom long enough to see all of it. I’m mhanders personally, but Anders is bi, him and fhawke isn’t inherently abusive, and the biphobia in this fandom has to stop.
