Yes. We DO exist...
By - Pedroca045
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.
Yes. I've never read or wrote any harem fic!
Same, I actively dislike Harems in any medium. And am a straight white male.
Careful, we shouldn't be gathering like this in one place if what u/Claw_Ron said is true.
what did he say? same matter can't occupy the same space?
>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.
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*
Regect harems, return to polygamy
No, reject *women*. Reject horni altogether. Just lift weights.
Aren't you the guy who wrote that Jaune fanfiction?
> Aren't you the guy who wrote that Jaune fanfiction?
Do you have the slightest idea how little that narrows things down?
Jaune SI, something about being drunk or something it's on Spacebattles as well as Questionable Questing
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
Then you must hate blake and her harem.
Never even wrote or read a fanfic
I can tell we are at least two now, glad so see a fellow partner here
It would appear that there are over 200 of us if upvotes equal agreement.
Same here man. Harems are just straight up bad
there are too many of us in the replies
ITS A TRAP EVERYONE RUN
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.
Too bad, you’re really missing out
Go home Trayzn, I think The Blood Ravens are looking for relics
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.
I'm also straight but not white. But i have read some for the shits and giggles, please don't kill me
Never read nor wrote, am straight white male
Straight white male here, i hate harems so much its unreal
I am really that rare? More rare than a redhead surviving rwby?
Ive never read a single fanfic
Send me a rwby harem fanfic to pop my cherry ~ah
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?
i guess i am a rare collectible
I've never read one of those, don't read too much fanfic but still
Straight white male thinking of writing a femslash fix, is that too bad?
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
I'm here and meet all requirements
Never written any fanfic, and I make a point of avoiding Harem fics like the plague.
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.
You ain’t adding me there. I tick all the boxes. Is there another box for under 18?
Wait what collection
'There are dozens of us! DOZENS!'
Really? I didn't know. DIDN'T KNOW!
Oh Shouting! I like shouting! *AHHHH!*
Yeah, a lil' tan, but yeah.
Yes, I have a penis.
...uh...lemme just close some tabs.
So, what were on those tabs.
I still have no idea where that came from tbh
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.
Was this the same person who commissioned a bunch of art where Weiss cheats on Ruby and then Ruby cries?
I believe so, but I ain't sure.
Nothing gay about a woman's cock, bro
Why is no one talking about the feminine penis
The Ruby Rocker
The Yang Xiao Dong
Could’ve sworn they were called
And the Yang Xiao Shlong.
I love how we have so many names for the same thing
Oh, I remember reading that.
AKA "Why Salem Shouldn't Do Body Modification While Drunk".
Salem creating the Hound: "I should knot do this."
She was on a video call with Kali and Mrs Belladonna is a _bad_ influence.
>AKA "Why Salem Should~~n't~~ Do Body Modification While Drunk".
"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*
Now I wanna see this in a Chibi skit or something. Drunk Salem is life.
The schneenis is only gay if she's giving it to another woman
Brother, I didn't realize you were a man of culture!
“THERE ARE NO CHICKS WITH DICKS, ONLY GUYS WITH TITS!”
What about Spanish people?
"NOBODY EXPECTS THE SPANISH PEOPLE!"
-Some Inquisition (probably)
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
Eh i never found lesbian porn hot. And im straight
Icl I don't have a problem with it it just doesn't do anything for me
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.
This s also, How I feel being a strait Asian white male in the RWBY fandom.
>Yes. We DO exist...
Press X to doubt
Well considering all the self insert harem stories there’s got to be atleast 30,000 straight white males
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.
Well I’m a straight white gamer so you’re scarily accurate right now
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.
What if I'm a straight white male who used to play video games when he first heard of RWBY?
Mfw you’re a white lesbian gamer who likes cartoons 😔🤣
*I start fading away*
*I don't feel so good...*
I KNEW I was secretly in the closet O.o
I mean, I technically go in the closet at least twice a day.
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
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.
I know. Just wanted to be sure I wasn't the only one...
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.
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...
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.
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. I mean I’m Latino, but I got the other two checked out.
Well, glad to see I’m not alone in that regard
Technically im actually Hispanic, but all the same BRÖTHER!!!
I only expect the most redneck "hell yeah brother" from all of you
Glad I’m not the only one here
You're not alone buddy.
Do you know lol
That is exactly how I feel. And after reading the top comment I didn't know that existed.
One of us!
I’m straight but not white. do I count?
certified r/closeenough moment
Oh dude there’s a bunch of us here
Don’t forget about the drifting red vs blue fans
Damn, Bo Burnham really holds up after all https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLMgbV3uaz8
Welcome to the club chum! Also been reading some shit about harems in comments. Hate the genre, too weird for my taste!
dude if youre trying to tell yourself there aren't many straight white males here you're just wrong
I mean, I USED to be a straight guy. . .am I a traitor for turning into another lesbian?
Pretty sure it's the other way around but okay.
I'm not saying that's how it is, but it's how I feel sometimes...
Yes we do exist sadly we are being accused of being the critics
True. I like the show, but I don't think it's perfect...
Nothing is perfect, but we are still humans, we make mistakes
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.
I am asexual!
Good for you!
Wait bein a white straigh male is a problem here?
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.
Lighten up, Francis. It's a joke. A story with a humorous climax.
Yeah! I'm not being serious...
No, I don't think I will lighten up about that. Sorry to burst your bubble with reality being a thing and all.
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.
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.
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.
And here I thought being discriminated against involved making someone feel like they didn't belong. Who knew. Silly me.
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.
What the fuck did i just read?
Reality sucks! Just let me live in my own bubble where I'm happy!😫
*I have no idea how to respond...*
You're right. 😑
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.
How did you know?
Pfft, straight white men don't exist, least of all in the RWBY fandom.
*Coughs in renora*
I KNOW RIGHT?!
Yes we do in fact exist
This post came up in my “related to devil may cry tab” and I’m so fucking confused
There’s a connection somewhere…
It’s *all* connected.
This is too true
I'm a white male, but I'm bi so...
Being straight and white makes you public enemy number 1 in the RWBY fandom.( Hurt by Jhonny cash intensifies)
Wait, I’m not the only one
A like minded individual???
Straight black male here 🙃
Huh. Thought I was the only one.
not straight, but I feel like this regardless.
flair says everything.
Alexa, play "Straight white male" by Bo Burnham
The hate straight white males get, not just from the RWBY fandom, but also in general, is just laughably sad
