Milla for the Lord of Spirits you are tactless and pretty dumb.
YOU CANT DO STUFF ALONE.
and thus your legs are fried…

"What lies at the bottom of my heart?"
Let me stop you right there.
In case you haven’t heard already, some SQers have decided that they want to make a documentary to broadcast all of ”the adversity [they] often face online and off”, and to “show the world, with this film, how important representation of diverse communities are and the impact that fans can have on media”
Shown above is a still of the promotional video on their page, and speaking as a lesbian, this seriously pisses me off.
Allow me to explain.
I am afraid to come out at school because I have no idea how people will treat me and talk to me and look at me if I do. I can’t go on dates or take a girl to prom because I don’t know which girls are “safe” to ask out or which ones will think I’m disgusting and want nothing to do with me. At the rate the U.S. is going, maybe, maybe, in ten years or soI’ll be able to get married in my home state of Florida, and even if I can, I can guarantee that there will still be people who will hate my wife and I, who will want to see us dead because we’re abominations. Because we’re detestable.
And you want to just go and pin a real, serious issue on your fucking ship because you’re not getting your way and you want to make your tattletale “documentary” seem legitimate.
That is the most immature, selfish thing I’ve seen from the SQ ship in a very long time.
Furthermore, let’s dissect a part of your mission statement.
However, there has been much backlash toward the Swan Queen fandom due to it connecting two women romantically on what some like to call a “family show”. Instead of fighting back with negativity, the Swan Queen Movement grew. The Movement set out to “Kill’em with kindness”. The mission was to change the perception of our rather large group by spreading messages of equality, kindness, love and inclusiveness.
Yeah that’s a load of bullshit.
- Sleeping Warrior- While not officially canon, the ship has been (from what I’ve seen) warmly accepted into the fandom. despite it being unlikely to happen, given the seeming one-sidedness of Mulan’s feelings (also I believe Jamie Chung is working on another show now).
- While you’re talking about a specific “Movement”, and I’m sure there are SQers who spread equality and practice the Ship and Let Ship policy, my experience has not come close to that at all. I’m thinking of the shippers who write extensive comments on Captain Swan gifsets bashing the ship and promoting their own. I’m thinking of the ones who flood inboxes with hate and send angry, hurtful tweets to the cast and crew of the show. I’m thinking of the ones who go to an OUAT panel and make everyone uncomfortable by asking when, not if, but when, Swan Queen is happening. So far, I haven’t seen “Kill’em with Kindness”. I’ve just seen “kill’em”. Sometimes literally.
P.S., have you seen the Captain Swan kiss? That is not a family moment. That’s a grab-a-glass-of-ice-water moment.
Making a “documentary” won’t make Adam & Eddy “see the light” and decide to make SQ endgame.
It won’t change the minds of shippers who don’t think SQ is happening.
And you aren’t doing the LGBT*QIA+ community any favors as far as I’m concerned.
Let. It. Go.
