#FINN DISCOVERS SHIPPING

I see a commentary on the intrinsic pointlessness and stupidity of this ‘shipping’ nonsense. Most of you will grow out of it……..if not, I’m sure Tumblr will still be here in five years.

oh my gosh this episode is so meta

This whole episode is like a big middle finger to a huge part of the show’s fanbase.  I really don’t see what the point was, other than to make the people who get the most invested in the show feel like utter shit.

“Shipping,” especially the most popular femslash shipping which cased a huge stir in the fandom, is not just a pathetic degenerate hobby.  It’s something queer fans engage in because they are desperate to see the narrative portray something they can relate to.  It’s important because it allows them to make a community and bond over the show in a way that makes them feel safe and included.  They are imagining the diversity and inclusiveness which the creators are apparently DEAD SET on denying them.

I can’t really forgive the creators for mocking their fans this way.  I can’t understand why they would mock people who love their work and support it so much, even though they are constantly ridiculed for doing so.

This is a pretty narrow way to view this episode, and ignores the artfully depicted themes of Finn exploring his interest in sexuality,getting a little weird with it, and trying to learn about himself. If you think this episode was meant as a “fuck you” to the fans, frankly, I think it’s a reflection of a wrongly inflated sense of fandom-importance. It seems to me the creators were more interested in telling a story about Finn learning about sex and relationships, and how your feelings about it can get kinda weird when you’re a kid. It could also be interpreted as a comment on shipping, but more about how shipping is often an unrealistic view of how relationships work.
