in order to preserve their otp

And why do some shippers think “Emily’s only with Paige/Sabrina/whoever when she can’t be with Alison, Alison is her true love” is some sort of defense against accusations that Emily is being flaky this season? It’s a total non-sequitur.

Like, they’re prepared to accuse her of using women she knows have feelings for her in order to keep herself amused as if that’s some sort of good thing because it preserves their OTP. I know they don’t care about these other characters, but surely Emily should.

Emily is a character, not just half a ship.
