I’m getting really fucking sick of Tumblr.
I can’t even believe someone would be so much of an ass to write up something like this. I’m stunned, really.
Or perhaps I’m not so stunned. Perhaps I’m used to the fans on this website making complete morons out of themselves when it comes to their beloved fandoms. Perhaps I see this all the time and this is just a case of it being taken too far. Perhaps this is the last straw.
Whatever the case is, I’m at my wit’s end here.
These TV shows are much more than your pointless pairings. All you fangirls seem to care about are “super kawaii homo pairs omg OTP!” Did you forget that there is an actual fucking show happening. There’s a plot and there are other characters.
It’s like you don’t even watch the show! You just stare at the screen, bored, until you see your “kawaii OTP 5ever” interact. Then you twist whatever you think happens in the show to fit your “OTP” and their “love story” until it isn’t even a show anymore! It’s just your fucking bullshit that doesn’t even make any sense.
People put work into these TV shows/movies/books/etc. People invest their time, money, effort, and talent into these things. You know that and you continue to just fuck up their work.
And the worst part is? You post it on Tumblr.
There’s a 95% chance that none of us want to see this bullshit. Most of the people on Tumblr shudder from second hand embarrassment when they see this. The really dedicated fans of the show who, unlike these fans, have a grip on reality wish you weren’t in the fandom. They wonder why you can’t just enjoy the shows without being so obnoxious.
BUT WHOA THERE HOLD ON A MINUTE DON’T GET ME WRONG HERE.
Being in a fandom is okay.
Shipping things is okay.
WANNA KNOW WHAT ISN’T????
Twisting and perverting a show to house your fantasies.
Fucking up a show until it’s hardly the same just to thrust your OTP into it.
Being a “fan” of the show for the “kawaii homos”.
Doing all of that and putting it on Tumblr.
Being in a fandom only for your OTP, posting ridiculous shit on Tumblr, and ruining fandoms is not okay.
Okay, this post really pissed me off and I apologise to my dash.
I get it. You see that post and it pisses you off. I won’t disagree that there are some serious issues regarding that post. But tagging this generalizing rant about fandom and shipping, particularly in specific fandom tags, is not okay.
