*fistbump* It's something I've seen blow up weirdly often. Watson/Sherlock is fine but Sherlock/Watson is pedo, Hux/Kylo Ren is fine, Kylo Ren/Hux is pedo.

So it's kind of like finding out they ship your NOTP in another fandom, I feel awkward not knowing if they're active in harassing people who ship stuff the wrong way. I have no problem with Steve/Tony, it just doesn't push my kinks the same way. I'd feel kind of guilty kudoing and feeding into that complex, you know?

I also stumbled some with untagged stuff that was very Morality Fandom, like an entire chapter dedicated to Consent 101 and side-characters who are demiromantic asexual genderfluid etc. which is what made the connection click for me.

You're saying that people are genuinely saying that it's like pedophilia because one is smaller in size????? What the fuck is wrong with these people????

ahaha oh man Sherlock/Watson?? I feel kind of insulted on Martin Freeman's behalf. Those people must haaaate dwarf/hobbit fic. pedos everywhere, obviously. Not thirsty Richard Armitage fans after all!

I've never seen this extreme, but I guess I've seen similar stuff on tumblr. And it's definitely something I'd want to avoid encouraging in any way. But the only way to be sure you're not reading fic by someone who harasses people or sends ship hate (over this or anything else!) is to go stalk them on social media. That's not something I'm willing to do with every fic I find on AO3... anymore than I need a full biography of every tumblr user who's post I reblog.

OP - The fact it's not something with a good solution is why it's a fandom secret. I'm not about to start stalking them to try and figure it out, it's too much work for fic reading. I'll just continue on with my teenie amount of inner turmoil of questioning if they're taking this kudo as support of their weird morality crusade, or the way it was intended, that I just like their fic, or more likely they're not going to care or notice.

Pedophile is the latest word that a minority of people on Tumblr have adopted without actually understanding what it means. I find it really pretty offensive to trivialize it in that way, actually.

They couldn't do any more damage to the word "trigger," so they decided to move on.

' pedo.'

So what you're saying, basically, fundamentally, is that these people are fucking idiots.

(Anonymous) 2017-03-19 07:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah basically. I guess "child coded" is new to me so I'm turning it over. Not arguing that any of this is valid.
