There are many characters in anime that seem cold and heartless
but on the inside
actually do have feelings and care for others.
They just don’t make it obvious.
AS YOU (maybe) WELL KNOW, i am a multishipper in all senses. i will not only ship anything you throw my way if you can make it make sense, but i will happily leave you to your ships if for whatever reason they do not suit my tastes.
i. HATE. hanji/levi.
you wanna know WHY? because there is not a single fucking hanji/levi shipper i have seen or know who acknowledge hanji’s genderless self. every single one.
not only pick a singular gender, but usually pick female, and put them in flowy cocktail dresses, and make them the literal mother to levi’s children. and it pisses me off. this is problematic in that it blatantly disregards the canon that hanji is agendered, it assumes that they must be biologically female due to arbitrarily perceived feminine traits which is wrapped up in the idea that “androgynous” is only achievable by masculinity, and the entire thing just stinks of “look the ship is straight now”.
i HATE this ship because of that. which sucks, because objectively it could be a good ship, but the lack of responsibility and dignity afforded either of them makes me not want to even try; never mind the fact that there is a good amount of evidence to point to the idea that hanji might not only be agendered but aromantic/sexual.
cos do you know what hanji cares about more than people?
you ship this ship, fine. but don’t you fucking DARE tell me that you respect and understand hanji’s character if you reduce them to the “waifu” and the “babymaker” of the relationship.
