Okay, I’m gonna start this off by saying that I do ship Faberry. It’s not my OTP or anything but I do ship it. Which you probably think is weird considering this is basically an anti-Faberry post but whatever.
There is almost nothing that bothers me more than when Faberry shippers that hate Finchel go on and on about how badly Finn treats Rachel and how she deserves better but at the same time they’re okay OTP’ing Faberry, something where one half of the ship treated Rachel like absolute shit and has never once apologized. I know that Rachel isn’t the most likable character. Trust me, I do. But no one, no matter how annoying you think they are, deserves to be treated like that. Quinn has called her names, cyberbullied her, drawn pornographic images of her in the bathroom, laughed when she got slushied, among other things. And why? Because Quinn didn’t like how she dressed? Because Rachel knows she’s more talented than everyone and isn’t afraid to tell everyone? THAT’S NOT A REASON TO BULLY SOMEONE. There isn’t ever a reason to bully someone.
When Quinn got pregnant, Rachel was still nice to her and all Quinn has to say is ‘I would have tortured you if the roles had been reversed’. What the actual fuck. Here is a girl who has been bullied and yet she’s STILL nice to the one who bullied her. And Quinn doesn’t even have the decency to be nice to her about it.
It’d be different if there had been an apology. But nope, not even one. That pisses me off so much and it’s the reason I have issues with shipping it sometimes. The Faberry shippers that say ‘Oh she only did that because she’s in love with her’. UM. NO. YOU DON’T TREAT PEOPLE YOU LOVE LIKE UTTER SHIT.
I don’t ship Finchel either but jeez. Don’t go spewing hate about a ship when half of your OTP bullied the other half for no damn reason.
