I thought of this a couple days ago and I can't get it out of my head.
When women read a book they like, they'll draw millions of pictures of their favorite characters/ships (canon or otherwise) just being cute and doing memes.
Do men do this too? I don't think I've ever seen it. Do men even have ships? Do guys read books and think, man, Protag and GIRL3 are so cute together.
Is finding pleasure in watching another couple from the outside inherently female? Is it the purview of the man to want to displace the male in any relationship they read about? Is that why they only have waifus, and not ships? Why is the difference so stark?

A thread died for this
>>
>>21033014
oh no!
>>
there's male yurishippers who might like cute drawings and memes (there's no man to be jealous of, just two girls being cute)
for hetero shipping in case of some animus guys can get pretty autistic if the girl doesn't get with the male character he self-inserts as, but I don't think these types make cute fanfics and drawings
>>
>>21032989
No we don't because it is fucking retarded. Also a thread died for this

so this is the new meme, huh? just shut down everyone trying to start a discussion. /lit/ just keeps getting better and better.

Sometimes, yes.

>>21032989
Shipping is just a passive-aggressive form of waifuism. It's the same phenomenon. If you identify strongly with character A, then wanting that character to have a relationship with character B is the same as saying YOU want to have a relationship with character B. To address the question of why women tend to be shippers and men tend to be waifuers, I think it's because women tend to take the submissive role in relationships, whereas men take the active role. Somebody who is submissive is inherently more likely to subsume themselves into the identity of the character, to obey the "rules" of the fictional world. On the other hand, somebody who is dominant is less likely to do that. A way to test this hypothesis would be to observe what different types of gay men do in regard to fictional characters. Do "tops" engage in waifuism while "bottoms" engage in shipping? I don't know, because I'm not a faggot.

I drew my version of the shield of Achilles when I read the Iliad as a teenager.
I also drew Portuguese ships from Lusíadas and Sicilian architecture from The Leopard.

>>21033186
well, I know there are some men who write fanfiction, but they are very rare. also I don't know if they're gay, but I assume so.
>>
>>21033252
There's some long and infamous fanfics written by men. They're often crossovers and star an original male self insert character, think Sonichu. Supposedly, the longest piece of literature in the english language is a Loud House fanfic of this sort
>This is my own version of the Loud House where I move to Royal Woods, Michigan. When I move to Michigan and Meet the Loud Kids, The Entirety of the Universe will change forever. Get ready evil, Justice has many brand new faces. The Universe now has a bunch of new Champions. Self Insert OC story. Crossovers with other shows later on. Mixed genres. Multi-crossover. Harem later on.

God I hate women and faggots so much

I heard that fic is a scam. the author just copy and pastes huge swaths of text to pad the numbers.

>>21032989
>Is finding pleasure in watching another couple from the outside inherently female?
Yes, its their harem dweller instincts activating

No. Men only draw booba so they can masturbate to booba because moids are walking penises. Men are incapable of love because their dick controls their life.
>>
>>21032989
Only faggots. When men find characters/books they like they autistically change their lives to become like them and found empires. Major examples are Alexander and Hitler.

I think i remember hearing that the longest piece of literature ever written is a Super Smash Bros. fanfic written by an autistic child. It was probably surpassed at some point though

>>21032989
well whenever I used to write fanfiction i would self insert. something of an unshakeable egoism
>>21034272
men are groomed from a very young age by a reciprocal mental rape machine. unfortunately the lynchpin in the entire cycle is women itself who eugenically selected for this carrion to spiral out of control and have ever since been unable to fix the issue

I don't know why it's like that but you're right. Women love ships (with OCs, normal characters and especially homo ones), and are fine with reading/writing things about romance without self-inserting most of the time (but they do that sometimes)

I prefer self insert as cringy as it is, it's better than that fucking xReader shit that's popular now.
>>
>>21033186
>Do "tops" engage in waifuism while "bottoms" engage in shipping?
People only do that sort of thing if they aren't getting laid
>>
>>21035994
isn't xReader literally self insert?
>>
>>21036066
the execution is different. more than that, self-inserts are the author putting themselves into the story. xReader, is the author putting the reader into the story. you have to deal with shit like Y/N and whatever other placeholders. I looked at one, once. It's like fucking calculus, except worse written and more bad sex.

>>21032989
You're too womanbrained to grasp that these differences are apparent even in monkeys. It's the purview of the male to actually do things in the world while women autistically obsess about relationships at home.
We want stories about boats and war and boats and space and boats in space.
>>
>>21036497
Okay, but is it so wrong to want the dashing captains of the space boats to realize their animosity has been hiding something much sweeter between them this whole time? Is it?

>>21034473
Yeah that one earned the title, every other fanfic that surpassed it afterwards is clearly going after some kind of internet fame as the other anon said, they don't really want to write that much even if they end up doing so.
Also I read a couple extracts of the smash one on /v/ like 10 years ago and I nearly pissed myself.
>>
>>21032989
Men have boats not ships.

Why do you think the best gay romance / murder / revenge story has an entire catalogue of boats and manly men.
>>
>>21032989
>When women read a book they like, they'll draw millions of pictures of their favorite characters/ships (canon or otherwise) just being cute and doing memes.
I have never met a woman in my life who does this.

Disgusting foid thread made even more disgusting by mentally ill men orbiting around it. Your inferior brain lacks the necessary cognitive abilites to understand men, you are wasting your already worthless time. It's a sad state of affairs that foids are interested in men and infest their spaces while the opposite doesn't happen (mentally ill men like those in this thread don't count, though they are doing a good job showing foids they can't compete with men without special privileges).

>>21034272
Inferior cognitive abilities, case in point. Foids only arguments are "no u" because they cannot think outside of social or moral relations and concepts. A foid making an observation about men that isn't "actually what men say of women is true of men hihihihi" is yet to be found. Men describe womyn in the way they do because of empirical observation and nothing else. If you don't like foids being defective men ask to see nature's manager, men have nothing to do with it.
>>
>>21040031
lmao
>>
>>21040057
Foid when you get butthurt but don't know how to reply it's better to post nothing. Acting cool and above it all might impress vapid minds like those you are used to interact with but to anyone with at least average intelligence it only makes you look even more of a loser.
>>
>>21040167
anyone who uses the word foid unironically has exactly zero (0) worthwhile opinions, but seethe harder I guess
>>
>>21032989
Visit any /a/ or /co/ shipping thread. But guys into "shipping" are probably inherently feminine somehow, especially animefags. The anime coomer to troon pipeline is real.
>>21040520

What is wrong with incel zoomers? I guess it's supposed to be like "void."

Imagine being a whore instead of saving yourself for marriage like God commanded.
>>
>>21032989
Men self insert instead
>>
>>21040520
Foid you lack the authority to say what is and isn't worthwhile, you are a woman. Unlike you i did not seethe while reading this thread, i did feel some disgust though. Anyone with a brain can notice how your answers are either trying to look aloof and attacking me directly, perfectly in line with what i said. Your brain isn't able to argue about abstract ideas, all it can do is stupid comebacks to try to show how better than me you are (in foid speak this would be "have higher social status") in front of a perceived audience. This is a result of biology and not your fault, but it's quite sad really.
>>
>>21041877
why did you revive this thread from page 10 just to post this gibberish?
>>
>>21041883
How stupid can you be? Calling something gibberish doesn't make it so as magic thought isn't real and unlike you i saged. Foid answering an abstract argument with insults and attacks doesn't work unless it's against someone as dumb as you.
