like idk it is not a conscious bias i doubt it but there is the problem of finding it cute when teen boys are dating but being repulsed by grown men dating in those ppl who are overly invested in fandom and shipping... like why is it only appealing to u when they're young? why are u so fervently against relationships that are pretty much universally accepted as canon bc of how glaring it is when these relationships are btwn two adult men? like if u just don't like it alright but if u get Upset about it uh why?? idk this all makes me uncomfortable <3
