I’ve now decided that whenever people start shipping a straight white male and a straight white female together, I’m going to show up and say “WHY CAN’T THEY JUST BE FRIENDS? WHY DOES EVERYTHING HAVE TO BE ABOUT ROMANCE?” Yeah. Let’s see how well that works out.
Because showing up and saying that to queer ships, to ships where a WOC is involved (looking right at all the fucked up shit that is said about Ichabbie) is ridiculous. There is a HUGE lack of representation for these ships and you have no right to shit on them when most of them aren’t canon and unfortunately never will be.
I can’t turn on the television without seeing white heterosexual romances. There is no lack of representation for them. And you know what? I’m tired of it. I’m tired of most of my ships being non-canon, of living in the margins and being told to smile and accept it.
Fuck anyone who ever says that kind shit (“why can’t they just be friends?” “why does it always have to about romance?”) and expects to get away with it. FUCK THEM.
ALL of this.
