This core belief that one’s sexuality matters in arguments or debates about fictional characters and a manga for children needs to be destroyed. I do not care whom you’re attracted to or what gender you are. And neither should you. Me liking straight ships does not matter either, at all. You’re not above me in an argument about canon ships just because you’re not straight and presume this means you’re automatically more open minded than I am and that it means I’m blind to anything that doesn’t suit my ‘straight view’.
Naruto and Sasuke are canonically attracted to women. They fell in love and married women. That’s canon. What you like, do or think in fanon, that’s none of my business and not my place to start judging.
Wanting representation is good and fine. But that does not give you the right to insult people for accepting and liking canon, because they’re not obsessed about forcefully denying canon facts, because whether you like it or not, canon cannot be changed. It is what it is. You won’t get representation by denying and boycotting canon, because Naruto has ended almost 3 years ago. It’s over and done. Sasuke and Naruto won’t magically turn gay and divorce their wives because you managed to silence and shame a few pro ending shippers into believing it would have been better for your ship to become canon. That’s not going to happen. Ever.
I’m not talking about people who are sad about the ending , do not want to accept canon and think their ship would have made more sense. Because none of that is bad. It’s ok. I’m talking about those who have taken it upon themselves to ‘educate’ people by forcing them to accept their mere opinion through insulting them as various things, calling them bigots or whatever.
being gay doesn’t make you a better reader. shipping gay ships doesn’t either. You’re the same as I am. You can go rage about that fact all you want. Fact stays fact.
