I feel like there’s an important thing people are forgetting in this fandom:
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Meaning, in this case,
DO NOT TALK SHIT ABOUT LOVE SQUARE IF YOU HATE GETTING SHIT FOR YOUR SHIPS
I get it, Love Square content over-saturates the fandom. Trust me, I understand. However, many of you may be surprised to hear that I, in fact, ship it. I say that is ‘surprising’ because I’ve honestly been surprised by how many times people just casually say things to me as if I am in agreeance with them on hating it. I get frustrated sometimes when I can’t find content for other stuff, but I don’t hate it.
I remember once getting a message that seemed to genuinely believe I would only draw Love Square if I was drunk.
Um, no. I might joke about it but, honestly, that’s not the case. It seems to be this common idea that if your main ship is something other than Love Square then you must hate it. So I see so many people casually talking about Love Square like it sucks or is terrible or ‘oh god not another one’ to those who have other main ships and I think that’s not good behavior at all.
How can you expect those who ship it to like you if you talk shit about their ship all the time? And if you turn around and get mad when they say shitty things about your ship, you honestly deserve it by that point.
Love Square is what the majority likes. Accept this and move on. How can you expect them to accept you if you keep talking shit about what they like? And how can you expect them to accept your ship as a whole if people keep giving the impression that those who ship it are against them? It makes no sense.
Don’t talk shit about Love Square. Especially if you don’t want people to talk shit about your ships. You may also be surprised at how many of your fellow shippers also ship Love Square too. Don’t alienate them as well. This have been a PSA.
