Hold that thought, that reminds me of this post:I never understood the "my ship must be canon!!" spiel from shippers. It's fine and dandy to ship, I do that too, but the canon obsession is super fucking annoying, who cares?! just jerk off and continue consuming product in healthy doses.
Given the kaiju fandom is kinda naïve, this is innocent-sounding enough. But replace Godzilla with another fandom, and just feel the horror start to sink in.
(Also there's no real proof Dougherty made a movie specifically to make a ship canon just because he was reblogging fan-art and said they're in a symbiotic relationship for survival and cuddles, and the whole "King and Queen of the Monsters" title both in-story and meta. It's cute, but until they have a kissy (snoot boop like the MUTO did) moment on-screen or even offspring, it's just a symbiotic alliance, not romantic. *ironic joke avatar notwithstanding*)
I made a post about it years ago in the beginning, but the RocketShipping sect of "QueerShipping" is more progressive than modern ~qweer~ ships because at least they attempted to keep Jessie and James in character while pointing out the reversed gender roles they display. Also it was made before being ~qweer~ was "kewl".Then there's the "um n-no hetero" cunts, so ashamed of shipping a straight pairing that they have to headcanon them as some r.etarded QUEER~ label just to not be fully shipping an icky wicky straighties pairing.
Fuck you cunts, just ship normally like the rest of us degenerates holy fuck
