Okay so I’ve had some time to process this and I’m just gonna post this one thing and be done with it.
I’m 31 years old. Sometimes it still weirds me out to say it but I am. I’m also a dude and I fucking love RWBY. I love it. I have posted many many times about how much I love it. I love the stories. I love the animation and most of all, I love the characters.
Now that can be misconstrued (or so I’ve learned today) but let me be clear. I am NOT attracted in any kind of sexual way to the characters of RWBY. I am emotionally attached to them. I am invested in their stories. I love their personalities and I love watching them kick ass and interact with one another.
I want to watch them grow and become awesome ladies who fight monsters and bad people and win wars. And yep, I even want some of them to fall in love with each other. However, none of that has anything to do with me having any kind of attraction to them.
The only thing RWBY related I’m attracted to is the gorgeous voice cast. All of whom are, you know, real and amazing people.
So yeah, that’s it - that’s my post about it. I appreciate the supportive responses I’ve gotten. Sorry for not responding to them but I don’t want this to be an all consuming thing. I’m offended by the accusation but also understanding of the ignorance behind it.
Also if you want to unfollow me because my age or gender make you uncomfortable, I totally understand. I know that I standout a little (though going to the screenings has made me feel better cause there’s a lot of people my age there). But honestly, if you feel the need to unfollow, it’s totally fine. No hard feelings at all.
Anyway, enough of this, It’s over and done and there’s a new episode tomorrow that I’m really excited to watch.
