Hey, just wanted to say that it's going to be a shame to lose you in the OW Fandom, but I definately can't blame you for leaving 🙁 all of my interaction in this community are typically anon because I fear the backlash of saying I like shimadacest and so i honestly cannot fault you for removing urself from this situation. Your blackwatch shimadacest comic was a really big ray of sunshine for me and I hope you're able to do the same again in whatever you go onto 😌😌 Good luck!!
Thanks. I don’t regret my time spent into the fandom nor I regret producing content for *gasp* a problematic ship (insert 1800 swoon here), I made friends with great people and I’ve found great artists to follow that I admire and am inspired by, but I’m just… So tired.
Not gonna lie, this whole bullshit with the McHan zine was pretty much the tipping point for me going “yeah no I’m out. Not getting back to this crap again.”
A fandom -and a site- when something like that can happen, and people (read: antis) will still try to defend someone that has stolen from charity money because big whoopity fucking surprise this person has been vocal against “problematic” ships and shippers. So other antis will try their damn best to shift the blame on those bad, bad shippers, somehow, when we all damn well know that if the roles were reversed they’d have no qualms writing 954094 callouts post… No. Just no.
This is very abrasive and not in my style as I usually try to measure my words and keep drama off my blog, but this fandom had eroded my patience like no other fandom ever did. And when you see shit like that, it’s not even drama anymore. It’s just something hard to shut up about.
