Shipping culture

By Anonymous - 07/03/2022 14:00

Today, my friend accused me of lying about being gay. Why? I happen to ship some m/f couples in the works of fiction I follow. According to her, gay people are inherently opposed to anything heterosexual, and therefore it shouldn't be possible that I like those ships. The kicker? She herself is straight. FML

Straight people love to try and define gayness lol. Like, just tend to yourself kiddo, my gay ass is fine. Trust me.

Don't they have Google where you live? Even I knew what it meant: "Shipping (derived from the word relationship) is the desire by followers of a fandom for two or more people, either real-life people or fictional characters (in film, literature, television series, etc.) to be in a romantic and/or sexual relationship."

Ship? What does that mean? I may be dense about slang, you are dense about what it means when she challenges your gayness.

I tried! When I searched "ship", it gave me pages about boats and FedEx Then, I tried "gay ship", and the results made me quit trying right away!

I only know about them from watching Sarah Z on YouTube :)

Damn, someone should inform the straight girls who ship m/m couples that they’re now trans gay men.

I guess I'm really old or not very cool, or both... because I had no idea what "shipping" was before this.

Rough, as a straight white guy I understand being gay isn't being against heterosexuality, it's just being gay. Do your one true m/f ships, fuck it.

Forgive me I must be getting older, but does shipping people mean you are writing fanfiction?
