I saw a lot of blog posts discussing about Shaladin and there are short posts and long posts… well nvm that. Let’s face the truth. Making people read letters that form words, read words that form paragraphs into an essay isn’t really going to work.
Look, I’m not saying your text posts are useless and whatever (and if you do say that I’m going to say you’re fvcking offensive because I wrote it clearly earlier). I asked myself what I felt after reading stuff from anti-shaladin, ship discourse and pro-shipping related tags and blogs.
I felt…literally nothing.
It just…did not give an effect on me. Just like looking at two people arguing over the internet. Just like listening to someone lecturing over the radio. At first it may give impact to the readers’/listeners’ feelings, but it does almost nothing. ALMOST NOTHING.
I know you might be trying to hit me or harm me…I don’t care. I’m just stating a fact, you know? And I know you might be asking, “Well then, what shall we do?!” It’s difficult, but meeting /those/ people in real life and talking some sense to them NICELY and POLITELY is one way. I know there’s very little chance of meeting antis irl (maybe because you can’t just talk to strangers, right?) but if you do have friends or if you participate in a fandom community, please talk to them.
Quick bad news. I used to be an anti. Well I don’t spread hate over the Internet but I texted my friends about a certain ship I loathed MOST. I said I hated the ship and people who ship it. One of them said “Appreciate people’s ships” and then I thought more of it. Now I feel normal looking at what people ship and which pairing they think is cute. (Sorry for ranting my life story like an asshoe.)
If you see someone ship something, DON’T EVER COMMENT HATE OR REPORT IT. Report something NSFW that isn’t tagged as NSFW. Report child porn. Report real-life pedophilia. Report people who abuse others via the Internet. Report things that insult people because of their gender, sexuality, race, religion and nationality. Don’t report things that come from a cartoon and fictional shows. It’s totally unnecessary.
So what should you do if you see a VLD ship you view as pedophilia, or a ship you dislike? Just ignore it. It takes less than a second. Scroll away. Unfollow the account. Filter what appears in your dash/home section. Make your social media your nice space, and let others make theirs their nice space. Don’t interfere if you don’t want to be interfered. It’s very simple, yet people get so inpulsive to give negative responses PUBLICLY.
If you hate Shaladin, stop viewing Shaladin posts. If you hate Klance, stop viewing Klance posts. If you hate Kallura, stop viewing Kallura posts. If you hate a ship, stop viewing posts of that ship. It’s so simple. It doesn’t harm you. It doesn’t harm others. It harms none.
Let people post what they want. Reblog what they want. Ship what they want. In the end, shipping is about who matches with who. Like matchmaking :D
Well, you can scroll away this text post. It’s so long. You’re bored reading the same thing over and over again. I don’t care. I’m just voicing my thoughts - I do it all the time (it’s nice to get this out of my chest, though I could go on and on for hours). Remember that Voltron is not about shipping. Don’t go insane on lovey dovey stuff if you aren’t insane on character arcs, theories, and symbolism. Don’t think of the possibility of your ship becoming canon if you haven’t thought of the possibilty of Lance getting his character development, where Shiro and Matt are, and how Keith feels now that he knows he’s half Galra. Focus on the whole general thing of Voltron, not the ships the fans made.
Hope you guys have a nice day! Send love not hate! :D
What did you do with your Emmy? Where is it living now? Did you get it on a shelf or something like that? Hum, no. My parents came to visit me recently and they kind of like, fix my life when they come over and so they got all these plants, and the Emmy was in a box, and my mom didn’t know that was the Emmy, and so she has a plant beautifully presented on top of the Emmy, with the box. Yeah, it gives a nice blue box. Yeah, exactly. It’s like, supporting life, so it’s pretty… It’s like a worthy thing to do, the right thing. That’s nice. You ever gonna take it out and put it up? No? You’re not gonna put it up? I don’t know. Why?
Look at you! You’re 27 now!! Happy birthday @therealjacksepticeye !!
