Thank you!!
I think it’s not just a case about overzealous shipping, but also a case on how male/female interaction is interpreted when it’s friendly.
You have this Hitchsprout piece, which looks obviously romantic, and isn’t the only Hitchsprout piece the artist has made. Yet it wasn’t tagged as shipping when it was posted. I had to add the tag myself.
Then you have this pic that’s tagged as Hitchzipp when it doesn’t look romantic in the slightest.
It’s so commonly assumed that a guy and a girl MUST be more than friends if they get along particularly well. It can happen with gay ships too in certain shipping circles, but with men and women it happens in fandoms and in real life. And it’s not just sad when it happens, it’s also sad when it’s called out and people still miss the point. Which is why not enough people question this kind of stuff on Derpibooru.

in my experience ppl are too obesssed and aggressive/defensive when it comes to shipping. There’s no appreciation or respect for good friends anymore - it’s all impulsive zealous rushing to pair x with y on even the most mundane and trivial aspects.
Shipping comments are practically spam - they’re so cringey, repetitive, and formulaic.

Look, I love this ship to bits, but it doesn’t sound like the Hitchpipp tag applies when the artist explicitly says they want them to be good friends
