This argument has come up a lot, what are your opinions about Kataang and Zutara? Which pairing is more likely? Do you think they're age differences really matter? Everyone's invited! Keep it respectful, though.

I mean, c'mon. Didn't your mother teach you manners?

Just be quiet and watch the show. The creators didn't even intend for there to be shipping. So please, please, just enjoy the show.

The main issue with this forum (never been to it, but I think I can pretty well guess) is that it's a hate forum. A ship bashing forum, fine. A character bashing forum, fine. So long as they keep it to at least slightly reasonable levels, go for it. This forum you're taking about, however, is a shipper bashing forum, and in my personal opinion, that crosses the line. Zutarians may do and say some pretty boneheaded things, but it doesn't help a Kataanger's/Maikoan's/whomever's case to act like a j*** about it. If you want to rant about the things they do and say and argue their points like a reasonable person, more power to you, but insulting/flaming/bashing them isn't going to get you anywhere.

I agree

Don't be depressed. Take heart in that it's a tiny segment of a small niche of a vast community. Remind yourself about the greater fandom :)

It's vulgar and hateful. It's a forum devoted by its title to ad hominem. Such will always exist.

I know I know...it still hurts like poop. (Sorry. My placeword word is poop, seeing as I don't cuss.)

Anyone got love advice for someone jealous and tearbending?

7/28/2012 #5

Real life love advice?

7/28/2012 #6

Nah, for a fic I'm planning.

7/28/2012 #7

Oh - well if you PM me we could bounce around some ideas. Just give me what the situation is and I could help :)

Kataangers have thier legitimacy but don't let the extremes bother you. I have to ask, though, why did you go there? Did you expect that forum or thread to be welcoming? I feel like the title was a red flag. LOL


7/31/2012 #10

Didn't expect it to be welcoming per say, just a little less...violent. I felt like people were taking it way too seriously.

While I am not in agreement with that forum, it certainly isn't the worst I've seen from the shipping world. And honestly, just avoid places like that. They don't like Zutara or anything about it. Just avoid it. It's honestly no worse than what Zutarians themselves have done.

Now, what is honestly more irritating is doing a search for your ship and seeing nothing but opposing shippers making fun of it or calling it p*** in the search results.

@Amira: Are there still people calling Kataang and other ships p***? I've been out of it for awhile but I thought that nonsense would have blown over at least by now.

8/1/2012 #13

It's not going to blow over - these shipping wars aren't going to blow over for a long time. People still harbour ill feelings, and when new watchers join the fandom it starts all over again. Maybe when we're all old and senile - and when no one actually watches this stuff anymore - will it calm.

8/1/2012 #14

Hey Ivy! :)

LOL that would be funny wouldn't it? It all blowing over the moment we don't care. Karma, much?

I'll be jousting in a wheelchair by then.

@IAMOBM: Yeah that would be funny. XD Who knows what our favorite fandoms and characters will be like by then.

All the adults will be dead or senile...what a sad day that will be...

Bah, they're forever frozen in our hearts, immortal in our fanpics, legendary in our fanfics. Those characters will never die. Not as long as we live. :)

This is completely not fair I have heard zutara fans say worst things!!!!!

There's been venom on both sides.

SuperNova's right. On every side of every argument, there is a large percentage of idiots who don't fully understand the situation and/or opposition. The key is to know the difference between a rational person who is simply defending their opinion while trying to be respectful and one of said idiots. (The same thing can be said in many political arguments, with the one coming to my mind most readily being the debate over gay marriage. I've seen wonderful people who happen to be LGBT slammed with spam from religious scumbags, and I've seen people who were raised religious and are just uncomfortable with the whole situation through no real fault of their own get slammed as well, simply for sharing their discomfort in a respectful manner. It's really a sad situation.)

Phabel: It all depends on the point of view. Simple as that. The question that it all boils down to but has to be answered is: Are you for or against? If you're for it, does that mean that all people against it are intolerant and contemptable? If you're against it, does that mean all those for it are sinners and sick?

All too often today, people are way too passionate in the defense of things that they hold dear.

I agree. They're fictional characters for gods sake.

Poarter: While that's true, and people do get way too hyped over fictional characters, we were actually discussing something else.

Does anyone know anything about this new MMORG called "Onigiri"?
