Anonymous asked: Hello, I love hetalia but I dislike yaoi. After some people found out I had people messaging me calling me a homophobe. I'm actually a bisexual female. But apparently because I have a distaste for yaoi I got hate. Do you have anything I could say or do to avoid this please? Thank you <3 (p.s I wasn't rude about the way I stated my distaste for yaoi. I was very gentle and polite as possible with it.)
I’m sorry you were attacked for your personal preferences. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with such preferences as we’re all different and like different things.
Perhaps you could say something like, “I understand other people like it, but I’m not really into ___.” It might not sound as strong as the word “dislike” (not that “dislike” is really a strong word anyway, but…).
Honestly though, if you get hate messages for that sort of thing, the best thing to do is ignore it. Click the ignore button on the messages. If someone sends hate over your opinion, they’re probably not worth your time to reply to.
