About 20 reblogs and around 50 messages.
All in response to one reblogged post and a pile of statistics. Statistics which turned out to be largely inaccurate as a matter of fact, much to almost nonexistent embarrassment.
Honestly it’s almost embarrassing how easy it is to get a reaction. I don’t even have to try, I just have to find a secret and leave a message about Yaoi and more specifically John/Karkat. It doesn’t even have to be a good objection, I just left a pile of statistics this time to prove that they just ship slash because it’s “smexy”.
John/Karkat is 7.5% of non-smut and 15% of smut and the most popular pairing for both. Percentages do not get that high for a purely fanonical ship if it isn’t being forced upward by fans and what’s more it doesn’t get that big of a jump between non-smut and smut unless someone is getting off on it.
I do like how most of the reblogs are basically just flavors of “No, we’re right because haha! haha is why! Also there’s a lot more of us so we’re sure we’re right. It’s not like we’d be too petrified of standing up for this horse shit if we didn’t outnumber you sixty to one. I mean that’s obviously not a thing that would be true that you can tell simply from our idiotic kneejerk responses.”
It’s so moronic and self-masturbatory/gratifying/aggrandizing that it’s almost adorable. Of course what’s more adorable is how some of them actually seem to be convinced that they aren’t just being a bunch of fucking idiots.
All the crying is starting to get on my nerves.
