Wow, that title is a huge mouthful. I usually like huge mouthfuls and have no problem with them, but that’s not the topic for today. No, this blog post came to me during a discussion with some of my friends in which we were talking about our favorite ships. It’s no surprise that I believe Ignis/Noctis has more chemistry than a galactic supernova, but not everyone supports non-straight ships.
And that’s fine. All of my opinion posts are prefaced with: you are entitled to your opinion (as wrong as it may be). Straight people will often seek out ships that mimic their lives, and people who are not of the straight variety will often seek out ships that mimic their lives. Neither is inherently wrong (**See: fujoshi/lesbian fetishists– and no, this doesn’t apply to anyone who enjoys consuming non-straight media despite not belonging to the group of people! It applies to those who delegitimize us as human beings while still finding the idea “hot.”) And there is a problem when alternate sexualities are delegitimized by the fandom at large when it comes to the characters. Trust.
