If you’re thinking about comparing a shipping fandom to Hitler, even in jest, here’s a thought: DONT.

If you’re thinking about comparing a shipping fandom largely composed of Black people to Hitler–but only in a humorous context– consider: DON’T.

If you’re thinking about jokingly comparing a shipping fandom to Hitler, when you yourself are part of a shipping fandom that has also been erroneously compared to a real-life fascist, maybe, just maybe, recall the Golden Rule and DON’T.

Basically it’s a good idea, as a general principle, to NOT implicitly or explicitly compare ANYONE to Hitler outside of a political context, and then only with extreme caution!

It may be meant to be lighthearted fun, but try to remember the heavy emotional impact it has on many people, some of whom are your fellow shippers. Comedy should speak truth to power, not put down marginalized groups, even without malicious intent.

In conclusion: D O N ’ T

i feel as if no region has ever got as much hate as sinnoh. Hating sinnoh was the "in" thing for 10 years and even if it has a lot of fans now the number of haters never really died down. It makes me sad. Even unova or hoenn never got this much hate

While it may feel that way, especially if you’re tracking tags when a bunch of complaints come up, we should all remember that we’re not seeing the whole picture. Believe me, every region has gotten its fair share of hate. It seems worse because we here at sinnohlove obviously love Sinnoh. When you love something, you’re much more sensitive to insults against it, often because people tend to interpret hate directed at something they enjoy as being directed at them personally for enjoying it (erroneously, usually). 

I’ll just share the way I feel about it, and y’all can do with it what you wish.

I’ve been in the community since I played Blue version at 7 years old, sitting on my couch with an overleveled Charizard named “Magic”, after the Orlando Magic basketball team. I excitedly bought Silver, then Crystal, Sapphire, Diamond, Platinum, down the line, all the way up to Sun this year. Every time a main series game (or, hell, even a side-series game) is announced, there is always love and hate in surprisingly equal parts. It all evens out over time, is what I’m saying. 

TL;DR: Don’t sweat it. Enjoy what you enjoy, ignore the detractors, and keep moving. 


hot dresses AU/spyAU inspired by that incredi-drawing by gabzy + Neji is too floored by how killer Tenten looks to properly touch her (for a while, anyways). based off of convo with gabzilla-z & matchaball and

this AU is gonna be the death of me my god 


As @yuunabai-whisper2 and I determined, when it comes to cowboys like McCree and Erron Black, archers like Hanzo and Kung Jin are indeed straight as arrows … as in very helluva bent arrows.

We have now reached the point in the party where Erroneous goes tentacular! Mostly so he/she can hold all those drinks. While cavorting. With the unfortunate Izzy, who seems to attract the worst element at this shindig. They appear to be dancing the Tentacular Tangle. Izzy is contemplating a rate hike - say, a dollar a dance. Plus insurance.

They will both hit the floor in a matter of seconds.

Izzy belongs to the amazing tanglefoot, whose over-the-top dance doodles are largely to blame for this debacle. I’ve been wanting to torture Izzy for this whole ball. He is. TOO. MUCH. FUN. to draw. XD
