Ship who we want, every couple on tv is shipped irl, so shut the fuck up, because your making earpers look ridiculous when it's such a normal thing to do
No it’s not fucking normal. You ship the characters for goodness sake. Nobody is denying that Dom and Kat have chemistry when they interact, but people are SEXUALIZING their interactions. That’s gross, and wrong and a fucking infringment of their privacy. And fucking disrespectful - y’all get mad when people deliberately ignore your sexual orientation then turn around and ship real people together cause it’s cute (when they are/may want to be/ may be just friends. And I don’t claim to know what Kat and Dom’s orientation is, but wouldn’t it be decent to allow them to interact with each other at cons and such, without SEXUALIZING everything they do?)
Are you allowed to think they look cute together? For sure. But people should keep it to themselves. Do we really want to make them uncomfortable? I think they are so open with us, and it’s such a gift, but then there are people kinda bitching that Kat is engaged to someone else when she should be engaged to Dom or looks better with Dom anyway or whatever. Or sexualizing when they hug, or hang out (of course they do, they are fucking friends.)
If you don’t have the decency to understand boundaries, to me you are not an Earper. Of course it’s my opinion but the fact that you think this kind of behavious is normal…fucking hell, try to put yourself in their shoes. Say you have a gf/bf and people you don’t know gloss over that fact to ship you with a coworker you are friends with. Would you be ok with that? Would your partner be ok with that?
It baffles me how people have no basic decency and can’t separate characters from real people. And we all bitch about how it’s wrong when men sexualize everything women do, but if it’s wlw doing it then it’s ok?
I started in fandom when I was 15, so exactly 16 years ago and perhaps because we had less social media, no fan worth their salt would think it ok to force imagined relationships onto real people. I am not talking about Wayhaught here. I am talking about people with lives outside the show, with private lives we should respect.
You guys go all out oversexualizing a genuine, wholesome friendship between two women then wonder why wlw are considered predatory by straight women when all you want to do is be friends.
Give me a fucking break.
