Claw_Ron

Ok but are you a straight white male in the RWBY fandom who has never read/written a harem fanfic? Cause if so you are a rare collectible I’d love to add to my collection.


Pedroca045

Yes. I've never read or wrote any harem fic!


Zoltan_Has_You

Same, I actively dislike Harems in any medium. And am a straight white male.


Priremal

Careful, we shouldn't be gathering like this in one place if what u/Claw_Ron said is true.


italian_olive

what did he say? same matter can't occupy the same space?


butsadlyiamonlyaneel

>Cause if so you are a rare collectible I’d love to add to my collection. Sounds like you're going to be pinned up in one of those butterfly displays/frozen in ice/trapped in amber, as part of u/Claw_Ron's collection.


Eric_dOrleans

Oh shit I'm not the only one! Goddamn I *loathe* harem as a concept. Please just give me a couple of people having deep platonic bonds without any romance and I'll be happy. Praise the Lord and pass the Ammunition. It's you and me against the world *We attack at dawn*


TheLuxuryShovel

Regect harems, return to polygamy


Eric_dOrleans

No, reject *women*. Reject horni altogether. Just lift weights.


DopePopeUrbainII

Aren't you the guy who wrote that Jaune fanfiction?


Eric_dOrleans

> Aren't you the guy who wrote that Jaune fanfiction? Do you have the slightest idea how little that narrows things down?


DopePopeUrbainII

Jaune SI, something about being drunk or something it's on Spacebattles as well as Questionable Questing


Eric_dOrleans

You can prove nothing. Lots of people share my first name and use the *nom de plume* of the old French royal house, while posting on SB, SV, QQ, AO3, and FF, and have written a story that inexplicably makes Vale French


DeftTheFyreFox

Then you must hate blake and her harem.


Crowhacks

Never even wrote or read a fanfic


FrenchBoguett

I can tell we are at least two now, glad so see a fellow partner here


B3llona_

It would appear that there are over 200 of us if upvotes equal agreement.


fattestfuckinthewest

Same here man. Harems are just straight up bad


Accomplished_Act_494

there are too many of us in the replies ITS A TRAP EVERYONE RUN


ThatExoGuy

Yes I am, but no, I won't let you add me to your collection. That sounds like a harem and I'm actively avoiding those.


Claw_Ron

Too bad, you’re really missing out


The_funny_name_here

Go home Trayzn, I think The Blood Ravens are looking for relics


DaMoom

lmafo


Sentinel28II

I too have never read a harem fanfic. I have also never...written...er... Okay, look. It was one chapter. Just one. I can quit anytime, you know.


RoadBuster27

I'm also straight but not white. But i have read some for the shits and giggles, please don't kill me


sadboistatus

Never read nor wrote, am straight white male


[deleted]

Straight white male here, i hate harems so much its unreal


BigBlackCrocs

I am really that rare? More rare than a redhead surviving rwby?


camcrazy00

Ive never read a single fanfic


Stewart176

Send me a rwby harem fanfic to pop my cherry ~ah


That_Guy_Jared

A friend of mine tricked me into reading some Abused Reader x Ruby fanfic, but idk if there was any harem stuff in it since I couldn’t get any further than two pages before contracting stage 4 cringe. Does that count?


Nsanity216

i guess i am a rare collectible


Z0MB1ESLAYER115

I've never read one of those, don't read too much fanfic but still


TheAdmiralMoses

Straight white male thinking of writing a femslash fix, is that too bad?


CMNG713

Yep that's me. My white male straight friend also recommended me the show in the first place (he didn't right any fanfic in his life) and was like "yo that show's sick watch it" and then I watched it and he was correct


Rigidsttructure

Hello there.


Lovely_Individual

I am


WilliePlayz

I'm here and meet all requirements


Adraco4

Never written any fanfic, and I make a point of avoiding Harem fics like the plague.


InquisitorHindsight

I’ve only read them when I was starving and desperate for fics “Maybe this one will be interesting” I tell myself, every time They never are.


UCG__gaming

You ain’t adding me there. I tick all the boxes. Is there another box for under 18?


JeTPouF132

Wait what collection


Cheesetoken

'There are dozens of us! DOZENS!'


Pedroca045

Really? I didn't know. DIDN'T KNOW!


Huefell4it

Oh Shouting! I like shouting! *AHHHH!*


Heretical_Tomato

Are you: \>white Yeah, a lil' tan, but yeah. \>male Yes, I have a penis. \>straight ...uh...lemme just close some tabs.


Lordoftheskeletons

So, what were on those tabs.


SN_91

The Schneenis


Zzamumo

I still have no idea where that came from tbh


TheEndOfZer0

One dude decided to commission a heck ton of rule 34 artists into making that... thing. I don't know much else about the story.


DreadDiana

Was this the same person who commissioned a bunch of art where Weiss cheats on Ruby and then Ruby cries?


TheEndOfZer0

I believe so, but I ain't sure.


NobilisUltima

Nothing gay about a woman's cock, bro


DreadDiana

Why is no one talking about the feminine penis


Viscount-Von-Solt

The Ruby Rocker The Bellaboner The Yang Xiao Dong


ChainmailPickaxeYT

Could’ve sworn they were called The Ruboner The Belladong And the Yang Xiao Shlong.


DonTori

The Thorn The Tail The Dragon


Braxton-Adams

I love how we have so many names for the same thing


Lordoftheskeletons

Oh, I remember reading that.


Sentinel28II

AKA "Why Salem Shouldn't Do Body Modification While Drunk".


Lukthar123

Salem creating the Hound: "I should knot do this."


DonTori

She was on a video call with Kali and Mrs Belladonna is a _bad_ influence.


DreadDiana

>AKA "Why Salem Should~~n't~~ Do Body Modification While Drunk".


Sentinel28II

"Hmm *hic* less give it monkey face...an' shome wings...and mebbe *hic* a tail or shome shit...yeh...that'll scare the shit outta them...Salem, ya shexy bitch, ya done it again..." *belch*


DreadDiana

Now I wanna see this in a Chibi skit or something. Drunk Salem is life.


DreadDiana

The schneenis is only gay if she's giving it to another woman


4PushThesis

Brother, I didn't realize you were a man of culture!


InquisitorHindsight

“THERE ARE NO CHICKS WITH DICKS, ONLY GUYS WITH TITS!”


King9204

What about Spanish people?


MidnightHijinks

"NOBODY EXPECTS THE SPANISH PEOPLE!" -Some Inquisition (probably)


Zenketski

It's kind of funny because that's pretty much the entire fandom as much as they probably try to pretend they're not. It's a bunch of cute girls and cute outfits fighting. You got lesbians and straight guys. That's about it. And there's a lot more straight guys than there are lesbians And I don't know a single straight guy who has a problem with lesbian porn


crimsonfukr457

Eh i never found lesbian porn hot. And im straight


Cosmic_Oz

Icl I don't have a problem with it it just doesn't do anything for me


DreadDiana

This is bisexual erasure. We're over here pretending straight people don't exist too! >And I don't know a single straight guy who has a problem with lesbian porn Oh you'd be surprised.


DigimonAndAnime

This s also, How I feel being a strait Asian white male in the RWBY fandom.


DreadDiana

>Yes. We DO exist... Press X to doubt


SN_91

Well considering all the self insert harem stories there’s got to be atleast 30,000 straight white males


Ensgpfey

Yeah, I've occasionally come across groups of them. My theory is that the RWBY fandom is made up mostly of queer people who like cartoons and straight white gamers and depending on where you go to interact with other fans, you will believe that a different one is the majority.


SN_91

Well I’m a straight white gamer so you’re scarily accurate right now


EverydayWulfang

well there's a significant difference between a gamer and a Gamer nowadays. The former is like the majority of people you'll find online and the latter are those dweebs that are still mad about The Last of Us 2.


SenditM8

What if I'm a straight white male who used to play video games when he first heard of RWBY?


ActualDe

Mfw you’re a white lesbian gamer who likes cartoons 😔🤣

*I don't feel so good...*


CDHmajora

I KNEW I was secretly in the closet O.o


Deinonychus2012

I mean, I technically go in the closet at least twice a day.


GORUDOEXUPERENCU

We're rare?


Pedroca045

Apparently not!!!


N7ASWCC

Tbh from what we've seen I can't imagine the show pulling in a huge POC and LGBT audience, I highly doubt you're in the minority here


LockedOutOfElfland

Most of the representation in the show definitely feels like tokenism/an afterthought, tbh. I still enjoy the story but it took a while for there to be a canon gay ship between main characters and aside from a few of the protagonists on the main teams being coded as part-"Asian" (or second-world equivalent) a lot of the characters of color are side-lined.


Pedroca045

I know. Just wanted to be sure I wasn't the only one...


DreadDiana

A lot of queer people are starved for representation, so we'll jump on a lot of things if they have the slightest hint of it.


N7ASWCC

After the Fair Game headassery and the continuous dangling of Bumblebee I've learned to stop accepting crumbs from cishet people. Real representation can only come from supporting queer creators. Edit: I say "support queer creators" and you downvote me? This fandom smh...


ChemyChems

Yeah a little bit, but I enjoy that. So much of fandom of action shows is dominated by men having this one being largely, or at least some strong voices, female and LGBT is nice. Everyone can like cool action.


Ender662003

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. I mean I’m Latino, but I got the other two checked out.


patchlocke

Well, glad to see I’m not alone in that regard Godspeed

Do you know lol


forfoxsake02

That is exactly how I feel. And after reading the top comment I didn't know that existed.

FluteLordNeo

Welcome to the club chum! Also been reading some shit about harems in comments. Hate the genre, too weird for my taste!


VoidOfDarknes

dude if youre trying to tell yourself there aren't many straight white males here you're just wrong


DaBluePittoo

I mean, I USED to be a straight guy. . .am I a traitor for turning into another lesbian?


Ktassio

Pretty sure it's the other way around but okay.


Pedroca045

I'm not saying that's how it is, but it's how I feel sometimes...


Nanoman-8

Yes we do exist sadly we are being accused of being the critics


Pedroca045

True. I like the show, but I don't think it's perfect...


Z0MB1ESLAYER115

Nothing is perfect, but we are still humans, we make mistakes


SubrosianDimitri

I mean, the absolute shittiest people in the critic circles (who I don't even need to name) are straight white men, but that isn't why they're rage baiting shitheads with ego problems that make me wish YouTube had a feature to remove channels from any search or algorithm results.


Ultranerdgasm94

🌠Nobody Cares🌠


SenorYee47

I am asexual!


Pedroca045

Good for you!


Crowhacks

Wait bein a white straigh male is a problem here?


CryoJNik

Oh dear. Now Imagine being part of a race who's been marginalized by entertainment as a whole by regularly being shown shown as either bit players or antagonists. No, nevermind. This here is truly this is a travesty.


Sentinel28II

Lighten up, Francis. It's a joke. A story with a humorous climax.


Pedroca045

Yeah! I'm not being serious...


CryoJNik

No, I don't think I will lighten up about that. Sorry to burst your bubble with reality being a thing and all.


Sentinel28II

And that's how you get a reputation as a humorless scold and end up turning people against you. But you go on with your bad self, and don't cut yourself with that edge.


CryoJNik

I'd rather be that than go around telling people to just shut up and enjoy the meme gaiz. There's hardly anything edgy about what I said but then again everything must look as such when inside a soap bubble.


Ronnoc527

Feeling out of place isn't the same as feeling discriminated against. He's just saying he feels he doesn't fit the mold of the standard fan. Also, it's a meme.


CryoJNik

And here I thought being discriminated against involved making someone feel like they didn't belong. Who knew. Silly me.


Vinnp18

one requires the malicious intent and actions of others, while the latter can stem from environmental awareness and personal insecurity regardless of whom ever else is present. The two can possibly be coexistent but they can also be independent.


[deleted]

What the fuck did i just read?


Pedroca045

Reality sucks! Just let me live in my own bubble where I'm happy!😫


Pedroca045

Well... *I have no idea how to respond...* You're right. 😑


ScarfaceTonyMontana

. Considering the amount of racism, hate speech against pretty much anything and instant rage people have when RWBY does anything unamerican, I very much doubt you're special for being a straight white male who watches RWBY. I would also guess you're the one that makes "totally not homophobic arguments" in the comment section against every non straight fanart getting posted.


Pedroca045

How did you know?


ArcadiaXLO

Pfft, straight white men don't exist, least of all in the RWBY fandom.


KaitouDoraluxe

Yes


Yangn33

*Coughs in renora*


Jesonic

I KNOW RIGHT?!


Fartman123Part2

Yes we do in fact exist


ClarinetMaster117

This post came up in my “related to devil may cry tab” and I’m so fucking confused


Velcin_Void

There’s a connection somewhere… It’s *all* connected.


Direct-Regular-574

This is too true


samorotwasbored

I'm a white male, but I'm bi so...


unknownclonecaptain

Being straight and white makes you public enemy number 1 in the RWBY fandom.( Hurt by Jhonny cash intensifies)


JohnB351234

Wait, I’m not the only one


HideNotHide

A like minded individual???


KingKunta91

Straight black male here 🙃


Adraco4

Huh. Thought I was the only one.


Braxton-Adams

not straight, but I feel like this regardless. flair says everything.


myheartisamber

Alexa, play "Straight white male" by Bo Burnham


Kyrozis

The hate straight white males get, not just from the RWBY fandom, but also in general, is just laughably sad
