There are few fandom things that annoy me as much as people treating the dominant ship in a fandom like it’s an oppressive majority that needs to check its privilege and stop shitting on smaller ships by continuing to thrive.
Every majority is not an oppressive, privileged majority. You are not born into privilege because of the ship you like. That doesn’t mean that you don’t have individual privileges you need to check. It means that when you co-op social justice terms to apply to the dynamics of fandom, you need to sit back and think about what you’re doing, because it sucks.
A large group of shippers isn’t oppressing you. You are being treated grossly by a bunch off assholes in that ship. Big ships have more assholes just by sheer numeric chance.
jesus god thank you
i am beyond done with people misusing important and weighted terminology to whine about fandom squabbles
like yeah, occasionally those squabbles are rooted in social issues where sj terminology is applicable, but a majority ship cannot be fundamentally problematic or oppressive
