I just have to get my feelings out there in my own post because up until now I’ve only been reblogging other people’s posts and I really just have to make my own and get my thoughts out.
I respect everyone’s opinions. I respect everyone’s right to ship whoever they want, whoever they are. Ship 15 people in a single polyamorous couple of you want. I’m happy you connect with it. BUT STOP WITH THE DOMKAT BULLSHIT. PLEASE.
I’m not saying don’t ship them. I’m not saying don’t fantasize about them. I’m not even saying stop posting about them if you want, or writing Fanfiction or making gifsets and fan art. I can’t stop you from doing that and I’m not trying to.
But, when you take it so far as to tag them in posts about it- Especially when you talk shit about Ray (Kat’s fiancé for those who don’t know though I’m pretty sure most of you do) and make jokes about how they are actually secretly a couple- Not only does this poorly represent the fandom, but it humiliates and embarrasses them.
Seriously, you claim to love these actresses so much, but then you hate on someone for making Kat happy because it’s not Dom, and you act like they were ever actually a couple and Ray threatens that. This is starting to look like what happened with Camren.
If you don’t remember the Camren fiasco, let me refresh your memory. Camila and Lauren had to beg their fans to stop tagging them in Camren related posts, because it got so bad that people were literally pressuring them to come out as a couple when they weren’t one. How can you claim to love Kat and Dom so much when you’re putting them in this situation? They are actresses.
The same thing happens with other celebrities as well, like Chris Colfer and Darren Chris, Natasha Negovanlis and Elise Bauman, and Tatiana Maslany and Evelyne Brochu.
People don’t like this. When you’re so desperate for a couple that you literally start making the people who you ship together uncomfortable about it and trying to accuse them of hiding it, that is harmful and it doesn’t say you love them, it says you don’t care about their general happiness at all as long as your ship is real in your eyes.
Yes, you can think they’re cute and feel there’s something more if you want, BUT KEEP IT TO YOURSELF. At the very least, please stop tagging them in posts about them, especially ones that hate on Ray and tag Kat. This guy who people are hating on IS A FREAKING WAYHAUGHT SHIPPER.
He supports her and makes her happy. If someone believes that their fantasy ship between a nonexistant couple is more important than Kat and Dom’s general happiness and wellbeing, I’m sorry but I do not consider you an Earper. You are not a part of my fandom. You’re something else entirely, and I don’t want to be associated with you in any way. Continue shipping if you want, but PLEASE stop tagging them and trying to get them to admit they’re secretly a couple. This is hurting them and if you care about them at all you’ll leave them alone.
