Thank you for your opinion on Shiro about how he does not "give Lance much attention" I do agree that Shiro isnt perfect and theres alot that happened in S2 that no one really had time to focus on the other. I guess the fans are just upset that Lance didnt get alot if screentime but theres still alot to see and Lance will get his arc considering the direction his story is taking. Lance is just too popular which makes their side of the fandom louder and thats why posts like that pop up often. :/
( ill actually tag this later but rn im on mobile so: #discourse )
thank you!! yeah lance is my fav too, and its not like i dont get where certain concerns come from. but some people are looking for a someone to blame instead of being patient, and in addition to bashing the creation team, people have seemed to settle on shiro as the source of all of lances problems and insecurities. which is frankly insulting, and often screams of bias for keith (read: klance, lmao) which they blame shiro for in their own dang rants too.
as if it was shiro and not keith who has several highlighted moments with lance about his insecurities. the scene with the face mask about blue, the “cool junk like that” line immediately followed but the “maybe i dont have a thing” scene, the scene where keith gets to go to the blade base instead of lance (and shiro DOES have a point about red’s temperature tolerance, like he may be a bit biased for keith but his decisions arent based on that bias, but on logical arguments).
and as if it was keith not shiro that had the only highlighted moment in the entire series with lance about explicitly helping to clear up a bit of his insecurities (albeit probably unknowingly). aka the “that’s why we bring out sharpshooter” line.
the only reason people arent blaming keith more instead of shiro (which ppl…shouldnt be doing either…lances insecurities are his own and have no doubt been building up his whole life before keith came into the picture) despite there being more canon moments of them putting each other down and/or keith acting as a foil to highlight lance’s own insecurities is because of their OWN bias, and shipping goggles tbh.
and to top it all off, those rants against shiro are usually not-so-subtly laced with ableism which is….Gross™.
tl;dr: people needa chill tf out. be patient. stop bashing characters for unfounded complaints. and please think before u speak tbh cause i know most of you dont INTEND to come off as ableist but boy howdy do i see that shit @ shiro A LOT lmao
