This is probably not an unpopular opinion but I hate when fans force sexualities on actors just because they ship the characters. Like, even if the characters are both straight and of the same gender, you can still ship them! No harm done there! But shipping actors in real life with people who aren’t of their sexual orientation and basically forcing them to face it and insinuate that it happens in real life just pisses me off and it makes a lot of actors really uncomfortable and there’s such a double standard.
Like, if you shipped a lesbian actress with a guy, it would be disrespectful to her sexual orientation, but shipping two straight dudes together when they’ve stated they’re not comfortable with it is fine???
Nah, we need to keep characters and actors separate. That goes for hate as well.
