IA with you that it's your right to fan how you choose. I'm just not seeing the same respect given to those that want to remain positive about the show & actors. Even this morning you re-blogged a post that said something positive w/a neg comment. that blogger didn't come here & force you to read it. Instead of scrolling and ignoring that POV, you chose to do the exact same thing you're asking others not to do to you. You didn't allow that person to have their opinion. respect goes 2 ways.
Clearly you misunderstand me anon. I have no problems with shippers who want to remain positive and still love Sam and Cait and everything they do. That’s their prerogative and if it brings them joy then who am I to judge?
What I do have a problem with are shippers who make people like me feel guilty and ashamed for how we feel towards them right now. Now maybe no one means to do that but I know I’m not the only one who holds this opinion. I don’t want to have problems with any shippers, but it’s so hard not to be bitter when I read certain things and people act like if you’re not a positive ray of sunshine then you’re a horrible person who deserves to stew in your negativity.
I certainly don’t want everyone to rally around me and other shippers who have been targeted and throw us a pity party. I hate even talking about this situation because it makes me really uncomfortable. All I want is for the people who think Sam and Cait are suffering so badly to maybe think about the shippers who have suffered in their name. Instead of calling us negative and treating us like we’re miserable people, maybe try and see our perspective and understand why we think the way we do.
I supported and loved them for years. I dedicated so much time to them. Anyone who truly knows me know how much of a loss this is. It hurts to look at them and not feel the love and joy I once did. It hurts to know that they don’t care about what’s happened. None of us want to be angry with them but after 3 years of manipulation, games, abuse etc I think it’s only natural to be fed up. Maybe it’s not right to take it out on them and I apologise if I’ve been too harsh, but I don’t know who else to blame. I didn’t choose to ship them because of some delusional thoughts in my head. I shipped them because of their own behaviour. I can’t sit here and blame faceless men in suits who are apparently in control of all of this and not expect Sam and Cait to take some responsibility for their own actions. I don’t think they’re robots who signed away every part of their life to someone else. They do have a part in all of this and I’m not going to baby them or treat them like victims when so many of us here have been hurt.
I’m sorry if that makes you hate me or if it makes you think I’m trying to police other shippers who feel differently to me. That was never my intention.
