”From a very young age, music was very much in my house. I would sit with my mom, with the old LPs, listening to The Beatles and Carly Simon and Lionel Richie. The old LPs used to have the lyrics. From there, I would put on dance and music displays for my family, just to entertain them and make people laugh and smile. ”
Excuse me, can I just discuss this for a moment? Maybe? You know what, fuck it, going to discuss it anyway.
Notice how at the bottom there, it says ‘I just want to see who’s serious about RP’?
Yeah, I have an issue with that. Here’s the thing, I am totes okay if you want to have an RP blog that has no shipping involved. It’s cool, I get it, no judgement here.
I am also totes okay if that is all your RP blog is. Once again, on my end, there is zero judgement.
What I hate about this post is that it implies that people who ship in their RP’s are not serious, and I’m sorry, but that is a huge fucking misconception.
Some of my best threads are ship threads, and they are serious as all hell. I really don’t think it’s fair to assume that just because someone RP’s a ship thread, they aren’t serious about what they’re doing.
That’s absurd, uncalled for, and insulting.
I think that if you have no ship threads, that’s fine. I respect it. If you have some ship threads, still awesome, still respecting. If all you RP is ship threads, you rock, I’m respecting you.
Ship threads can be serious too, and we shouldn’t judge other role players based on what kinds of threads they are into.
