EXTREMELY IMPORTANT PSA FOR ANY AND EVERY COMMUNITY
(Now, I was originally planning on posting this on my personal blog, but seeing as this blog gets more notes on my posts and is more Undertale oriented, I’ll be posting it here.)
Now, I’ve seen a lot of ship hate going around. Of course, there’s always going to be Frans and Fontcest haters, but I’ve recently seen a lot of hate on more popular ships like Soriel. I haven’t seen any posts bringing this topic up, so I decided to post it myself.
I’m not here to be a mascot for Soriel, Undyrus, and other ships, but I’m here to bring up the topic of ship hate. I don’t care what someone ships. You should never, NEVER hate on them for it. I don’t care if it’s Frans, Soriel, Fontcest, Sanscest, Papycest, it’s unacceptable.
What IS acceptable, however, is kindly asking someone to not hate on your ship. However, please do not SHOVE your ship into someone else’s face because it’s ‘The Right Ship’. There’s no such thing as a right ship. Everyone is entitled to their own, personal opinions.
Now, a while ago Undertale Amino had placed a ship ban because of people hating of ships. Some of the ships included in the ship ban were Charisk, Chasriel, and Friskriel because it was considered at ‘Incest’. Heck, someone even said that Charisk is technically SELFCEST! Now, they weren’t entirely specific on this topic. There are AUs where Frisk and Chara aren’t siblings, same with Chara and Asriel and Frisk and Asriel. When it comes to Chara, Frisk, and Asriel, you have to be specific on limitations because of the amount of AUs where they aren’t siblings.
Scooting back closer to the topic of ship hate, I don’t care what the ship is. The only reason to 'hate’ on someone is if they are being rude to you. Not your ship, but you as a human being. There have been people going as far to say that ships like Soriel and Undyrus are 'Crack Ships’. In my eyes, nothing is a crack ship. But then again, that’s my opinion that a lot of people won’t agree with.
Like I mentioned earlier, there is no such thing as a 'Right’ ship. None of it is wrong, none of it is right. When you ship something, you’re usually taking two or more fictional characters and liking the idea of them being romantically together. There’s nothing wrong with this. I don’t care if it’s 'Disgusting’, because all you have to do is unfollow the blog if you dislike the ship instead of telling them how to run their blog and what to ship. Let me put it in an example. Let’s say that it’s Election Day, and you’re planning to vote for Donald Trump. However, someone says that you can’t vote for Donald Trump because they don’t like Donald Trump, and that you have to vote for Hillary Clinton because that’s who they’re going to vote for.
Converting the example to our little shipping talk, you’re basically telling someone they can’t ship something, because you ship something else, and you don’t like their ship, therefore they have to ship what you ship.
Now going to the topic of Frans hate. I don’t ship Frans, but I respect that other people do. Just like everyone should respect that other people ship other things. I’ve seen a lot of blogs receive hate for shipping Frans because it’s pedophilia. However, there are AUs where Frisk is 'old enough’ to date Sans. Yet the blogs with those very AUs still get hate for shipping Frans. Evidence for Frans being 'Pedophilia’ is a line that MK says in the game, which is something along the lines of “Yo, you wear a stripped shirt too? Well then, you must be a kid just like me!”. But honestly, ANYONE can wear stripes. Just because other kids in the game such as Chara and Asriel wear stripes doesn’t mean that wearing stripes automatically makes you a kid in the game. Even if you are a kid in the game, there are AU’S where Frisk is an adult and dating Sans, therefore there’s no room for the argument of Pedophilia is Frisk is an adult in an alternate universe.
Therefore, there’s absolutely NO REASON for hating on a ship just because it’s 'wrong’, because it isn’t. There’s no such thing as a wrong ship. Telling someone that they should ship something else because their ship is 'wrong’ is taking away their freedom of speech. Everyone is allowed to ship whatever they want, whether it be 'wrong’ or 'Right’.
I’m going to be tagging as many fandoms as possible in this post, because even though it’s mostly Undertale related, it’s an important lesson for everyone who is in a fandom and actively ships something.
I’m tagging some people that I hope will reblog and spread the word, if you are tagged, please reblog. If you don’t, I completely understand.
Thanks for reading.
