It's really really truly awful because then when you do, you feel like that one girl who has no boundaries for her favorite characters. It's always so fun to ship the thing, but then you start shipping the thing and you feel like crap because it won't be canon. Also, then you can't tell anyone that YES YES I DO SHIP THE THING I TOTALLY SHIP THEM, because when you do, they say something like, "That's gross. That's silly. Why are all your ships the same gender."
