Young girls in fandom (especially “fujoshi” ew) need to understand that being “obsessed” with gay men, having a ton of men loving men ships, calling us “sin” and seeing us as nothing but “HAWT YAOI” is not at all supporting gay relationships and is in fact an act of homophobia.
You are fetishising our love as if it were taboo and degrading us down to your oversexualised fantasies of us. We are not your kink or your guilty pleasure. It really needs to be addressed early on before it becomes a case of “um shut up im an adult woman and I can’t choose my sexuality as much as you can’t for being gay :)”.
Can we please just have a Peterick fanfiction where we don’t hate Mikey? Or how bout a Petekey where we don’t hate Patrick? Perhaps a Ryden fic in which we don’t despise Dallon and visa versa? That is all I’m asking.
