I love otayuri personally, I think it’s really cute. But I’m not the kind of person to be doing that. But I don’t think shipping Yurio and Otabek is wrong just because of their age, people can be together and not have sex, I’ve known people of that age going out. There’s nothing wrong with it. It’s fine if you’re just not into it but there’s no need to group us together and call us disgusting
you do know that it’s illegal right? you do know that i watched an ex-teacher get arrested for child porn because of people like you that encourage porn of minors, right? you do know that people can be friends and not in a relationship, right? yes of course shipping ota//yuri and pli//roy and anything with a minor with an adult is wrong, why do y’all want to ship ur “hot yaoiz XD” every time two boys even breathe near each other?
yurio is in a completely different stage of life than otabek. yurio is still in puberty. in fact, it’s even implied that he’s prepubescent in some parts of the show. honestly it’s an insult to otabek that you’d think that he, as an adult, would date a minor, a 15 year old, someone who has far less experience.
in fact, yurio’s brain is much less developed than otabek’s. he can’t make the same rational decisions, he can’t think as well as otabek can, he is a minor. i’m not saying this as anything, i’m saying that minors’ brains are still developing and that’s why we have the age restriction.
even if ota//yuri is pure and doesnt do anything wrong, it still encourages other minor/adult ships. it encourages people who ship 10+ age gaps with one character as 15 and one as like 30. it fuels the fire.
if you ship ota//yuri you are producing pedophilic content unapologetically.
