What is going on with this fandom lately? Where did people get the idea that they should discredit each other’s ships? Canon, non canon, poly, straight, gay, bi, non binary, suffering, interracial, non-canon sexualities, killed off in canon, still alive, who cares? Why is anyone weighing in on what anyone else likes? It’s not about you at all. Don’t like, don’t read.
It’s not a secret that I don’t like every ship. And I stand by my personal preferences as valid. I also stand by YOUR personal preferences as valid, even if I am against them. If I ever made anyone feel like their ship was stupid or wrong or illegitimate or less than any other ship, I want to apologize and retract whatever statement that might have been.
Your ship is valid, no matter who you ship. Even if I don’t like it. We don’t have to like the same thing. There’s no reason why we should like the same thing, we’re not the same people and there’s room in this fandom for as many ships as there are fans.
Knock it off. You are not the arbiter of who is allowed to ship what. Neither am I. It’s no one’s business but the shipper.
Ship and let ship. And don’t be an asshole.
