I don't have to like a ship just beacuse its gay. by Little-rolling-bean I don't have to like a ship just beacuse its gay. by Little-rolling-bean
This is what bums me a lot. If I do not like a paring, people go crazy calling me a homophobe. If I do not think a certain character is gay, people go crazy calling me a homophobe. I guess their logic is that because its gay, I MUST like it or else I am automatically a homophobe. :unimpressed: 

I really dislike ships of Rainbow Dash being gay. Why? Rainbow hair+Tomboy= Lesbian is their logic. I don't like it. It does not mean I am a homophobe. It means I don't like a certain ship. Apple Dash is a very popular ship. I don't care. If its your OTP, I don't care. I like to think Pinkie Pie is asexual and Applejack Bi.

Some people might dislike gay ships because it might not be  canon and the character could be confirmed straight or bisexual. :/ 


Yes, you're free to ship them as a pairing but don't go around screaming " It's canon! " and all that stuff.

there's a couple in a video game i really like that i honestly see as abusive/awful, but if i spoke up and said 'hey this pairing's kinda shit' i'd get dragged across the pavement until my face fell off because the pairing's both canon and F/F.

I usually don't like yaoi pairings unless there's enough canon evidence to make it plausible. For example, I couldn't find enough evidence in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire to justify the leaders of Team Aqua and Team Magma, Archie and Maxie, respectively, as old friends let alone as a couple. In the remakes, I found just enough evidence to justify them being friends that had a falling out at one point and a plausible shipping. And I really like the pairing.

Andrew Hussie, who created Homestuck, pretty much handwaved everything by saying that all the shippings were canon. Of those, I like the Rosemary (Kanaya and Rose) and PB&J (Tavros and Gamzee) ships, and the Rufuss (Rufioh and Horuss) ship really grew on me, and those are all the yaoi/yuri pairings I like.

But yeah, getting called a homophobe for not liking a gay pairing is just stupid.

I am fine with any parings due to thinking it is plauseable in an alternate dimension.

Sooo true! I'm COMPLETELY fine with people liking the same sex... It's fine! Its their life, they can live it how they want but if I say I don't like a certain ship which happens to be gay, everyone flips tables... Opinions... We all have them, so you don't have to flip tables if someone says their opinion... *cough* This mainly happens over 'Phan'.... But the message of this comment is, just because I don't like a ship does NOT mean I'm a homophobe, and i'm glad someone else agrees... Couldn't have said it any better

There are some yaoi parings that are cool but most I dislike.. Like Light X L and Spiderman x Deadpool.

Just a question. If I don't support gay rights and view anything GLBTQ-related as a mental illnes, am I a homophobe?

Pretty much. The Marrige part no so much, but the mental illness part? A most definite. Especially since psycologists have not proved that LGBT is an "illness".

Oh, well alrighty then. My mom is a psychiatrist and she plus her colleagues view it as such. Well, I guess it's up to me to just roll with it.

Also, I keep mixing up "illness" and "condition". What is the difference? I'm not asking out of rudeness, I'm asking out of curiosity.

Condition or not, its not a bad thing. I expect she does not try to "convert" them, because a psychologist should know that sexualites are not a choice. Thats all :P

I think "Illness" is something that comes along, "condition" would be something that was programmed in you. If it is something, its a condition.

No, she doesn't try to "convert" them or "cure" them. Heck, I doubt that she even had any gay/bi/anything patients. She just doesn't care about it and the same goes for me.

Oh, okay that explains it. Thank you.

Lol good enough xD

Now that I think about it, I can understand why one might see it as a "condtion" (condition in a professional way, not a bigoted way). Like Autism and Aspergers, since we act differently and see the world differently, we are deemed as "special". Gays act differently to their usual default preferances, and especially trans people, because they are not happy until they are the opposite gender, this urge starts from childhood most of the time. 
Personally, I do not think it is. I also personally do not see Autism as much of a condition either.

As a pansexual guy with an extreme addiction to fictional boys and way too many gay pairings, I can say this is very true. I mean, there are a bunch of gay pairings that I dislike. :T

That's one of the reasons why I started to dislike Yaoi:
I prefer friendship more than pairings. Then people started to calling me homophobic.

I loved it when I was a little girl, but for this, and for some other reasons (not homophobia), I started to hate it.

I really hate yaoi/yuri but it doesn't make me a homophobic. Me, not liking the CatXDog ship doesn't make me homophobic either.

I don't see how disliking gay pairs (especially anime) makes everyone a homophobic when they are not.

no but there are a lot of people that straight up bash people for shipping gay or lesbian pairings in which case they are ass holes and very well could be homophobic

hey :)

yeah, there are people who will bash you just because you like or don't like a ship, i've been bashed because of my ships before, and for disliking ships, it's annoying. i just try to ship my ships and be nice about it, and i don't hate anyone(especially not for silly things like ships), you know i'm nice ;)

the worst examples of this were :iconprincesselizabeth013: and :iconyoshiwii1:, if you don't ship their ships, they will slit your throat

pfft right? i dont care if people only like hetero ships or only gay ships etc, i like a mix of all of em personally BUT if someone disagrees that's fine (just as long as they aren't completley jerks about and saying stupid things like 'the gays are forcing their agenda on meeeee baaaaw'

there's ships i obviously dont like or could care less about but im not going to harass people over their pairings, it's not like the characters are real or anything haa~

I'm an all-straight shipper. That's just me.
That also means that I'm making myself a target for the rabid folks in our little fandom, because I don't ship Lyra and Bon Bon. I like them as friends and roommates, simply because that kind of relationship can also make for interesting stories.

I'm a HUGE yaoi fan, but if someone would hate or not like one of my gay pairing whit other's character or ships that i sail. I won't mind, they have their right to not like it. It doesn't mean they're homophobic. It just mean they REALLY don't like THIS one ship or this thing on the internet. Or maybe they had some even in the past that made them more disgusted toward lesbian or gay shipping on the net

But n'ah, obviously for some they are homophobic... And i hate it when i see pairing that are out of their character. Come on, it's better to have a good story where there's hint of love but the character stay in character then having them to bang in the second chapter...

I just like or hate certain pairings if I think they're logical enough with how the characters treat each other, regardless of the gender. I don't hate an entire pairing just because it's of the same sex (anymore).
