The thing that’s honestly hilarious about aggressive and moralistic anti shipping movements is that it literally does not matter at all.
Nobody outside of a very niche bubble and a small number of people even remotely gives a shit. They pour all this time and energy into something that absolutely nobody in the real world outside of the Internet gives a flying fuck about. It would be sad if it wasn’t so funny.
My mom loves telling people at parties just how ‘bright’ I am and how I’m always reading something, she does it all the time.
Mother. Stop. I’m reading gay fanfiction.
So, okay, there was this day, at this party, and she did it again but this time she took my phone off of my hands to show them (It was in english, not native, so no one knew what I was reading) and I SWEAR TO GOD, one of them suddenly had this look of recognition on her face and she fucking winked at me.
And that’s the story of how my mom’s friend knows I ship Sterek.
When someone asks who your crush is and once you answer they reply with “who?” So you tell them to google them and once they do they’re like “ewwwww he’s a raisin”……ya kinda just sigh, take their phone, and type in ‘young’ after their name.
