Yeah so I recently got into Shingeki no Kyoujin (or for those of you who don't know it, it's the titan manga) and, though it took me a while, warmed up to it. The plotline is great and the characters are very well-balanced and thought out. You just gotta get past the huge death toll and psychological angst (along with graphic images of people getting eaten alive by titans).
But the point of this journal isn't to rave about SnK. No, it's about the shipping (more specifically, the shipping war going on in Tumblr atm). Okay, so I'm just going to lay it out there...I do support the Eren x Levi (ereri) ship along with others. Now if anyone reading this is a hater then please just leave. I'm not about to engage in a battle over why I shouldn't ship something I do ship because of ....(list reasons here). I just can't understand why these children are making such a fuss over it. Is it pedophilia? Is it rape? I don't think so, but I'm not here to make a claim or argument or whatever. I don't care how old you are, you have the mental maturity of a child if you think that yelling as loud as you can and posting hate will get people to listen to you. You're no better than other cyber-bullies out there who think that their own precedents and opinions are correct and, thus, must impose it on others. I don't see why they care, truthfully. Just ship on I say! You are allowed to think and believe what you want. Where I draw the line is when you start forcing your beliefs on someone else (which is what the haters are doing and, no doubt, I do think some ereri shippers may be doing it as well. But I doubt the /whole/ ereri community is doing this).
So this is Tl;DR. My main message is this: Grow the fuck up. Thank you
P.S. I wrote this before but if any of you feel obligated to write a long response saying how ereri shippers are stupid and should die etc. etc. I'm not even going to answer you back. Frankly, I don't have to waste my time answering a narrow-minded person, so I won't.
P.P.S. If I lose watchers over this, then so be it. I respect your decision to un-watch me and won't hold it against you.
