Come on guys, anti tags exist for a reason. I totally understand if you don’t ship them, but WAY too many of you are being borderline insulting to those who do. If you only see them as a sibling relationship then that’s fine, but don’t make the Pyka shippers feel like we’re stupid for wanting them to happen.
A man and a woman CAN be friends, but just because they can be friends that doesn’t mean they should be friends. Most of you anti-shippers can’t seem to tell the difference.
IF Pyka happens, and that’s still undetermined, I have only one concern, that when this show ends both Pete and Myka are happy. That should be your concern as well, but you keep turning their growing feelings for each other into ammo so you can keep going on with that utterly pointless discussion.
Pete and Myka mean the world to each other, and I believe they would be at their happiest together. To all of the anti-shippers out there, do you have one reason that isn’t entirely based on personal perception as to why they SHOULDN’T get together? I mean, throw out the debate about whether or not a man and a woman can stay friends, throw out if you see them as just siblings, and come up with another reason why it would be bad for them to get together.
And I do mean bad. How would it hurt Pete and Myka to fall in love? And no hypothetical crap like “it could ruin their friendship” because that’s a HUGE maybe that people these days think will happen without a doubt. Somehow you anti-shippers believe that their friendship is great enough that it doesn’t need to become a relationship, but apparently it can’t, even with the slightest chance, survive a future, completely hypothetical breakup.
So if the anti-shippers are interested, I’d like to hear how Pete and Myka falling in love would be bad for them.
I should let this go but….I can’t. First of all, let me say, I completely agree, people should not be putting their anti-opinions in the pyka tag. That’s uncallled for. On behalf of other fans, I apologize.
As for the rest. Oh sweetie. I’m so so happy for you that your little het ship is sailing but let’s get a few things cleared up. First of all, you don’t have any right to tell anyone else how they should or should not interpret a show, its characters, or its storylines. You’re not a writer, a director or an editor, and even if you were it still wouldn’t make one fucking bit of difference because no one can tell another person how to approach a story and how that story and those characters should impact their lives. You don’t get to tell us what those characters and their relationship mean. Give you one reason that isn’t “personal?” Give me one reason that isn’t personal. Because I’m looking at the crap you’re spouting and all I seeis personal, yet you have the gall to tell me that your interpretation is somehow more objective, more valid than mine? Fuck off.
I’m fucking thrilled the only thing you care about is if the characters are “happy” at the end of the show but guess what? That’s not why most of are actually watching.
How would Pete and Myka falling in love be bad for us? Let me list the ways.
How about the destruction of 4 seasonsof canon of a relationship that actually subverted the ridiculous, tired trope that men and women can’t work together without there being sexual tension or romance?
How about the furthering of the bullshit narrative that women are somehow “incomplete” without kids and that any time anything major happens in a woman’s life, LORD HAVE MERCY she’s gonna want babies! When for 4 seasons that female character whose canon has (until now) actively existed to subvert those tropes.
How about the (apparent) complete and utter erasure of an aspect of a character’s sexual identity (and I stg if you come in my askbox and tell me Myka didn’t have romantic feelings for HG I will find you and kick you in the shins) an aspect that is SO FUCKING IMPORTANT for so many of us watching this damn show, because we don’t have the luxury of looking around and seeing ourselves represented on every fucking TV show ever.
How the fuck does Pete and Myka getting together hurt me? Its just one more example of how my identity doesn’t matter. How Idon’t matter because when it came time to wrap up the show, a major media company thought that catering to its Middle-America heteroviewers and not the FANS that actually helped get the fucking show renewedwas the most important thing.
I’m super happy you get your ship, and no, people shouldn’t hate on Pyka in the tags, but don’t you dare come in to this space with your arrogant, ignorant hetero privilege and tell me how I should feel about these characters or what this show meant to me or this community of fans for the last 5 years.
If you’ve ever asked yourself whether or not you should watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer then the answer is yes. You should watch Buffy. Everyone should watch Buffy. Your family should watch Buffy. Your friends should watch Buffy. Your dog should watch Buffy. Obama should watch Buffy. The world would be a better place if everyone watched Buffy
why do straight ppl think they can whine about gay ppl “throwing their sexuality in our faces” when almost every waking second of every minute of every day of my life is filled with heterosexual romance media and heteronormativity. like u think 2 girls holding hands in public is rubbing their sexuality in ur face you have no fucking idea what queer people go through on a daily basis shut the fuck up
