I want to see the receipts for this mocking tbh. I can't remember ever seeing Henry/Olivia fans being mocked besides referencing their fans being notorious one time. I remember details on fans doing PA behavior but never mocking like "Henry/Olivia fans are all whiny assholes!". The most I've seen is passive aggressive and whiny, which is pushing it when it comes to "mocking" because that fanbase has built that rep up. Unless it's saying something about their supports, which, you know, isn't mocking the fans personally. Maybe something like "It's so (X) I can't believe people like it!" But I can't recall seeing that. I've seen people mention liking English more than the Japanese and vice versa.

I haven't seen personal attacks against people who ship either, but I have seen critique (some phrased not as nicely), but never personal attack unless it's someone obviously self-inserting or showing some form misogyny. I've seen some generalization, maybe at the worst "Chrom/FemU fans are awful when it comes to (reason)" or something about their rep, but I've never seen actual personal insults. The amount of creepy stuff that comes out of the Chrom and Lucina secrets are staggering, and there's a fine line between what's a little over the top and being over zealous over pixels. The only thing I can say is that the anon meme can be hypocrites because we comment on secrets saying "Ugh this person can only marry Chrom! Creepy!" but then confessions like "I can only marry (not Chrom)!" are brushed off and not treated as the same category. While slightly different, there's a level of hypocrisy.

I've never even seen Henry/Sumia mentioned as better and it's barely been brought up.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I don't think the anon meme 100% goodness but there are some people who take not like a ship or critiquing it as mocking/bashing. I want to be proven wrong.

No one's ever mocked Henry/Olivia shippers here, only griped about bad shipper behavior and opined that Inigo looks like crap with white hair. The worst we ever did was linkdrop that one fic and that was more about the portrayal of the pairing, not the pairing itself.

This meme has been admittedly hard on the Chrom/FeM shippers, we did spend a disproportionate amount of time mocking fanworks we didn't care for. And I've noticed we come down harder on the "I can only marry Chrom" people than players who can only marry, say Cordelia or Gangrel. But no one's ever outright bullied Chrom/FeMU shippers for shipping it, just groaned over the creepy overinvested Die For My Ship crap that happens with this pair.

And no one has EVER claimed Henry/Sumia was superior. We have fans who love it and squee over it and proclaim it their favorite, but it's never been used to bash another ship. Ever.

This meme isn't 100% pure sunshine and we've done some dickish things in the past, but we're not as bad as this confession is making us out to be.
