imagine hating women so much that you can’t even handle a beautiful canonfriendship between two female characters because you’re too threatened by the fact that they’re romantically shipped by the fandom
Are you kidding me?! I'm a kid, and I love Voltron. I don't care if the fandom ships people, but this is S T U P I D. Even a little girl knows this. I'm 12! Come on. Its a fictional universe. Its NOT REAL. Who gives a care? We all are entitled to our own opinion, which is in the constitution and although you do have the authority to dislike it, you don't have to be a hecking d*ck about it. Gosh darn.
I like you, kid. You’re gonna be an interesting adult.
The types of ship-haters you will encounter in any fandom:
Chooses to ignore the romantic tension and will classify the relationship as “brother-sister”. May not actually have a sibling if they are this type.
Disapproves of the white, female character getting together with the man of color, no matter how decent of a person they are. Doesn't like being called racist but may intentionally or unintentionally say something racist to make their point.
also works in reverse. However, the people who don't like women of color getting together with the lead white guy are much more vocal than the typical type-2 people.
Will argue that straight pairings suck and will make arguments that (insert female character x insert female character) or (insert male character x insert male character) have better chemistry.
shipped one of the less popular ships on the show. They are typically nice people since even though their ship isn't happening, they knew what they were getting into.
"Did the writers have to put the (insert female character) in a relationship? Why couldn't she be a strong, independent woman?"
"This ship is TOXIC AF. Here, read my dissertation on why this character and this character should not be together".
Will argue that the chemistry and romance are forced and the writers suck for forcing this upon us.
Will argue that one of the characters in the ship is boring. This usually means the character is decent, is not a complete mess, and is actually a good fit for the other person in the ship. Will also argue that the angsty, unstable, dangerous character is "exciting" and "fun".
Will ignore the canon ship because for some fucking reason, they think the main villain has better chemistry with the lead female / male character. Even if they're presented with facts that the lead character HATES the villain, they will still dismiss the canon ship in favor of their bizarre crackship. Will also make excuses for the villain's behavior.
To add to the previous point, it doesn't have to be the villain. As long as they're unstable and dangerous...and a cis, straight white male.
"I don't care if it's based on a comic book / book / video game / insert other medium, I still don't like it and I think the adaptation should make some changes."
Will argue about the age difference, which is typically not a problem unless it's like a 20-year gap.
Will voice their displeasure through memes.
Will voice their displeasure through gifsets / photos / fanarts / manips
Will voice their displeasure through really aggressive fanfics.
The Newcomer ("Hey, I'm new to this fandom but I really hope this character and this character don't end up together. Maybe my opinion might change in the next few episodes / chapters"). By default, these people either turn into shippers or remain as haters.
me, @childhood friends to lovers trope:
It doesn't always have to be like this, yanno? Like, boys and girls can be friends or even best friends for forever and not develop romantic/sexual feelings for the other. A deep meaningful relationship between guys doesn't mean they want to bang. Sometimes, gal pal really are just gal pals. Platonic relationships exist!!
also me, when I see fictional childhood friends:

I just don't understand why this representation in two of the most famous literary characters of all time would be "so important" I just don't understand; people caring about this drives me crazy :/
On this episode of “Make Everything About Your OTP”:
Here’s Damien Darhk holding Felicity’s mask up to Oliver’s, during Legends of Smoak. The camera zooms in a little too, because even in “Doomworld”, the villains (and cameramen) stay shipping Olicity (◡‿◡✿).
↳ A better look at Oliver’s mask and broken arrows:
"It’s 2am and I’m drunk and I need some salt for my fries and I know your awake so OPEN THE FUCKING DOOR" au I don't care which ship or pairing you make it or even if there isn't one and it's a gen Fox fic but LET THIS BE KEVIN SAYING THIS
They were both too high on adrenaline to sleep. The game was over, the final game against the Ravens, and they had won. Every time Neil closed his eyes, he could see a future stretching before him, a future without hiding, without running, and most importantly, a future full of learning about the enigmatic Andrew lying in bed beside him.
They had fallen into bed together the moment they were alone and hadn’t stopped touching until Neil was seeing stars and gasping Andrew’s name. But now they were in the calm, slow moments afterward. Neil rested his hand carefully on the bed between them and Andrew grasped him firmly, but not tightly by the wrist and they lay there, breathing each other’s air, just resting in the dark.
How many times do the members of got7 have to ask you to stop tagging them in ship posts/talking about ships to them for yall to actually stop. Look, if you wanna ship in private, or on here, whatever, I don’t care. But got7 has asked you and now I am asking you PLEASE DO NOT SHIP THEM TO THEIR FACES. DO NOT COMMENT SHIPS ON THEIR POSTS OR VIDEOS. DO NOT TAG THEM IN SHIP POSTS. DO NOT TAKE SHIP SIGNS TO EVENTS. DO NOT ASK THEM THEIR FAVORITE SHIP. DON’T. TALK TO THEM. ABOUT. SHIPS.
All the shippers getting mad and bullying the ones who didn’t like how that episode ended with “Waah Cry More!” And “I love drinking your salty tears” Grow the Fuck Up
your ship is NOW Canon and you act like a collection of butthurt children because half the fandom didn’t want it that way? It makes sense for them to be upset! They expected a Whole Different type of relationship and got This.
Y'all are crying More than they are even though your ship is Canon!
Just be fucking happy you got what you wanted Jesus fuck man it’s a just show. Why do you care so much if someone else is upset?
The Samurai Jack tag is fucking ridiculous right now Jesus.
I used to be an assistant teacher and you guys are Worse than actual kids fighting on the playground.
If you’re a shipper and not harassing someone about not liking jashi I’m proud of you and this post isn’t about you
