I’m scrolling through the Callica tag because I love that ship, and half of what I see is hate. Which makes me really sad. I mean, I know it’s not a popular ship. I know people like Calzona better. I know a lot of people really didn’t like Callica. And I understand and respect that. But please. I love Callica. I love Erica Hahn. So while you’re completely entitled to your own opinion and you have every right to hate the ship, I would like to politely and respectfully request that you do not tag your hate. If you want to make posts about how much you hate Callica, that’s fine. Just don’t tag them with Callica. I’m in the Callica tag to see art and GIFsets and thoughts and fics of people who do ship Callica. I’m not here to see hate.
To recap: it’s 100% fine and understandable to not ship Callica. It’s 0% fine to tag posts about how much you hate Callica.
Okay, so some people in the Calzona fandom are just crazy and judgemental. Not everyone, of course, but some of the people in the fandom.
For example, if you ship Callica, Laurzona, etc, and you post that on twitter or tumblr, you’re gonna get hate. Lots of it. If you search for those ships on twitter, all you get is a long, endless stream of hate and more hate.
Why the hell is it wrong to ship those ships?
Sure, it’s okay not to ship someone and think that they don’t have any chemestry and so, but to hate on someone because they ship a ship that you don’t like, that’s just wrong.
"You can’t ship both Calzona and Laurzona"
“You’re not a true Grey’s fan if you ship Callica/Laurzona”
WHY THE HELL NOT?!
Urban Dictionary on the word ‘fan’: “A person who has interest or likes something, or somebody.”
Urban Dictionary on the word ‘shipping’: “Fandom uses this word as a verb to denote their interest in the possible (and perhaps more often impossible) romantic relationship between two characters in a piece of fiction belonging to any medium.”
So it doesn’t make you any less of a fan if you ship Laurzona/Callica/any unpopular ship, and it isn’t wrong to ship them, even some people like to think so.
ok so i’ve just been re watching grey’s and i used to hate erica hahn like everyone else but now i think she’s kinda awesome and i’m going to tell you why
see she calls mark out on him sexually harassing her, asking her out all the time when she clearly isn’t interested in him and he doesn’t get the fucking hint cos he’s a “man whore” “lol so funny” this wouldn’t be made light of if he were a woman but ANYWAY
i actually get now why she gave cristina such a hard time. like think of it from erica hahn’s perspective she probably thought that so far in her career cristina had just got by on the easy ride cos she dated her superiors, colin marlow and then burke. so i think she was just testing cristina to see if she actually wanted to fight for cardio and not just to things the easy way.
and she plays as good as the guy attendings and doesn’t let people shut her down just cos she’s a woman and yes she has an annoying voice but that’s not her fault. and tbh if you put me on a tv show my voice would pretty much gross you out as well and series 4 pretty much sucked anyway but we shouldn’t blame erica for that
so yes, erica hahn bitches, the most hated character in the fanbase (which i still don’t understand because doesn’t anyone remember Preston-i-will-abuse-my-position-of-authority-whenever-you-don’t-fulfill-my-needs-as -your-boyfriend-Burke)
she is completely underrated in my opinion, now that i’ve re watched the show and deserves some major recognition from the fanbase
