Adults: *create a space for other adults*
Minors*: *come into that space*
Minors: this isn’t a safe space for kids!!
Adults: …..uhh no, it’s not.
Minors: why are you personally attacking me personally?
Minors: I know you want to fuck children
Me: *looks at fic with one character that’s in his 40′s and another that’s in his 50′s, with no children in sight*
Me: ………please get out of my house
(I still get a lot of responses to this post calling me a pedo and I am t i r e d of this bottom-of-the-barrel quality discourse)
* this obviously doesn’t apply to all minors, and to all those minors (like me, when I was your age!) that manage to enjoy and participate in fandom without calling everyone a pedophile, I appreciate you.
Adults: we want to write/draw porn of these fictional adult characters.
Minors: that’s not appropriate for children.
Adults: yep! that’s why it’s tagged as explicit and has a warning for mature content and also is tagged for various sex acts in case you’re not into that.
Minors: that type of content makes me uncomfortable.
Adults: we totally get that but that’s why the tags and warnings are on it.
Adults: look you even have to agree:
This work could have adult content. If you proceed you have agreed that you are willing to see such content.
Adults: so if you’re not into that type of thing then you can just skip over it.
Minors: it make me uncomfortable.
Adults: ……then… don’t… read it?
Minors: you should stop writing it.
JUST FUCKING SAYING
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. If you’re old enough to be using the internet unsupervised, then you’re old enough to be learn how to avoid content that upsets you. Adult fans and content creators are not here to be your babysitters.
And that’s the tea.
