.:Headcanons:. by Mitochondria-Raine .:Headcanons:. by Mitochondria-Raine
I really don't mind what you headcanon, as long as you don't force your headcanon on others or berate them for not sharing the same interpretation as you.

That's the long version of what the stamp text says and the point I'm trying to make here. There's absolutely nothing wrong with interpreting characters a certain way. You think a character is trans? Awesome! You think a character may be otherkin? Good for you! You think a character is pansexual? That's fine! You can headcanon characters as anything you want! However, you need to realize that headcanons are called headcanons for a reason. They are canon to you, in your mind, and maybe not to someone else (including the creator of the character, mind you). Does that make you entirely wrong? Not necessarily. But it doesn't make the other person bad either. Someone may disagree with you about a character being trans, but that doesn't automatically make them transphobic or a bad person, and trying to force them to believe the same thing you do is only going to make them hate the idea even more than they already do, and that can apply to any headcanon, not just trans ones.

I understand that many of you headcanon characters as certain things, genders, sexualities, etc. for representation, and that's fine. But it's not okay to try to force those views on others or put them down just because they don't share your views. There's no need to act hostile towards anyone about it, and throwing accusations towards someone over something like headcanons is immature and hateful. Headcanons are supposed to be fun, but I've seen way too many people taking them very seriously and getting really uptight about others not agreeing with them, and that really takes all the fun away. Live and let live, people. As long as someone isn't berating you for having a certain view of a character, you shouldn't be attacking them for not sharing that interpretation with you.

In short, don't take headcanons so seriously. They are meant to be a fun way of seeing new interpretations of characters and sharing ideas, but if you act really hostile about them, people will be driven away from your idea and less likely to accept it. Be nice and chill out. It's as simple as that!
