the sj backlash to fetishizing gay male pairings has become an idea that casual homophobic(straight) liberals have latched on to as an argument against all m/m pairings and it’s getting really annoying please stop

#and calling m/m pairings mysogynistic ignores the fact that a lot of queer girls relate to queer dudes and are empowered by it #not everything is the sher lock fandom#str8 people man

I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS POST FOR SO LONG THANK YOU

bless your face and bless this post

the vast majority of m/m slash shippers I have known in my decade of fandom have been queer women. maybe it’s because, gee, I don’t know, the strongest non-het relationships in most media are between men. I’d have more femmeslash ships if I fucking had more female characters who actually appear together in the same goddamn scene, let alone talk and form meaningful relationships of any kind.

as media is now, you are more likely to find interesting and nuanced canon relationships between men than you will find between women. (let’s also remember that girls are trained from a young age to relate to male characters - through assigned reading in school to the main characters in their favorite books and cartoons. male characters are more fleshed out and get more screentime and are emphasized more and are thus more relatable for a lot of women.)

punishing queer women for the media’s lack of queer women (and women in general) is fucking ridiculous. the fact that most fandoms have more m/m slash than femmeslash is a negative reflection of media and societal norms, NOT necessarily the people in the fandom. fandom is reflective of this shit, not the cause. fandom trends are only symptoms of a larger problem. I will say this as many times as it takes: M/M FANDOMS ARE LARGELY FEMALE SPACES AND PUNISHING THEM FOR MEDIA AND SOCIETAL NORMS THAT HARM THEM IS FUCKING STUPID AND HELPS NO ONE

straight people who rail against m/m slash shippers for special ally sj brownie points: you are not fucking helping and you need to stop. this is not your place and not your job.

what a good, good post

I’d have more femmeslash ships if I fucking had more female characters who actually appear together in the same goddamn scene

oh my gosh yes this; I’m sorry but I’m really sick of the idea that I have to just totally make up f/f things in order to Be Equal or something or otherwise I’m a bad person

no, that is not how it works, and I should not have to pretend like every pair of girls who talks is a potential thing to explore just to match some imaginary quota.

stop acting like shipping a queer pairing ‘trivializes’ their relationship and destroys the sacred complexity and majesty of the endangered Straight Friendship. just stop and also fuck you

sterek shippers who actually recognize the issues with sterek in canon and actually acknowledge that stiles and derek don’t like each other rn and it would take a lot for them to be even just friends and actually love scott and hate the fandom version of these characters are sweet little pumpkins enjoy your shipping you cuties ♥

PSA: if somebody likes a problematic/unhealthy ship but doesn’t try to defend the problematic elements of that ship and simply enjoys it in a fictional/narrative context with all of it’s fucked up ness and you attack them and bring their personal morality into question for shipping it,  you are the asshole in that situation.

when i say i ship two of the boys it means i love their friendship and the way they interact with each other it doesn’t mean that i constantly picture the two of them doing it in the butt i just want to clarify that

They Are Never Ever (Ever) Gonna Get Together - A Tumblr (Slash) Shipping Song

So there was this graphic. And then morethanprinceofcats rewrote all of the lyrics. Dedicated to those ships. You know the ones.

Do you know that show with two guys?
(The white ones)
Seem written straight to me but who am I
To judge
In fanon they are always shacking up
Though I think those two are brothers 
(What?)

It’s not that I can’t see the base appeal
It’s two cis and able dudes with abs of steel
Or like, one is really smart but guys, get real
You say, “it’s subtext! Almost text!”
It’s really queer-baiting. 

Oooooh
Canon says that they’re good friends
But ooooooh
Tumblr?
I’m telling you, I’m telling you

They
Are never, ever, ever
Gonna get together
They (hey!)
Are never, ever, ever
Gonna get together
You can ship with your friends
Start a new trend
Write a fic!
But they (hey!)
Are never, ever, ever, ever
Gonna get together

Like, ever.

One episode I heard they had a fight
So you blogged about it staying up all night,
Or their differences were finally put aside
And I couldn’t scroll the tag for two minutes. I TRIED.

Oooooh
Character development’s cool
But ooooh
Tumblr?
I’m telling you, I’m telling you

They
Are never, ever, ever
Gonna get together
They (hey!)
Are never, ever, ever
Gonna get together
You can ship with your friends
Start a new trend
Write a fic!
But they (hey!)
Are never, ever, ever, ever
Gonna get together

I used to think my OTP was perfect, super
And I used to say, “Death of the author…”

“Ugh, so I checked out the tag for that new show that just came out,
And it’s like… I mean you’d think there were only two characters, ANOTHER show about two dudes with a SUPER IMPORTANT FRIENDSHIP… and it’s like, they
Are NEVER gonna get together. Like. EVER.” 

No!

They
Are never, ever, ever
Gonna get together
They (hey!)
Are never, ever, ever
Gonna get together
You can ship with your friends
Start a new trend
Write a fic!
But they (hey!)
Are never, ever, ever, ever
Gonna get together

Downloadable at the source! I threw it together in an hour but I thought it deserved some vocals.

“ugh I wish Amnesia wasn’t getting an anime! now the fandom will be flooded with TEH YAOIZ”

“BL FANGIRLS RUIN EVERYTHING”

“ugh those kinds of girls are so annoying”

“why can’t they keep their slash out of our otome stuff”

Yes by all means, continue hating on your fellow fangirls/women. Because liking BL is so much weirder compared to liking a yandere character who locks people in animal cages. Haha, the irony. Men don’t keep us down enough, we women have to keep ourselves down by insisting that “I am so different from those girls. I’m special and superior.” It’s no different from slut-shaming or fat-shaming.

Do you not realize how homophobic and stupid you sound? I asked someone about this and they said “I don’t mind BL, I just don’t want people slashing otome game characters because these games are made for (straight) girls!” In other words, “I don’t mind gay people as long as I don’t have to be reminded that they exist.” Don’t ask, don’t tell. It’s these same people who are up in arms whenever there’s a yuri route in an otome game. :/ Because god forbid that some otoge players might want to pursue a female character, too. And don’t tell them “GO PLAY A YURI GAME”! What if they’re bi? :/ Or just like seeing pretty female characters? I mean, please. All the hatred towards Daria and people saying “I would have loved Daria if she were male!” is just. Wow. No, that is not acceptable. How is that mindset any different from “I wish this female character were male/didn’t exist because they’re getting in the way of the yaoi!!111!” that you supposedly hate so much. 

And so I asked “So when is it ~acceptable~ to slash characters?” Because shounen manga is “made for boys”, right herpderp. I’ve been told “JUST GO READ BL” so apparently it’s only acceptable to slash guys who are already gay or something.

Seriously, fuck you guys. I’m getting rather tired of being treated like a second-class citizen or something just because I like BL. I don’t even slash any of the guys in Amnesia or Arcana and I’m still annoyed by people’s attitudes towards fangirls who do. The whole “Oh here let me spoil everything in Arcana just to try and deflate some of those gross BL fangirls!” mindset is really rude.

Geez, BL doesn’t actually affect you guys at all. Scroll past it or whatever. Denying people of their right to like something by saying that it’s gross/weird/whatever is messed up. Don’t you feel bad whenever people tell you “Haha you’re such a loser, playing games where you date fake men”? Because you’re doing the same thing: “Haha those girls who ship slash pairings are such losers.”

Sometimes I feel like women don’t have equality not because of men, but because of other women. We’re so eager to make ourselves out to be great and different that we willingly tear down other groups of women to do it. We’re all fangirls, jfc. Why do we have to differentiate and decide that BL fangirls deserve less because of their shipping preferences?

thank you, i’m on the same boat and this needed to be said.  i myself don’t slash anyone in otome games despite liking bl, but have nothing against those that do, obviously. it’s sad that some are so tunnel visioned and self righteous that they’ll never realize they’re being hypocritical.
