a word used by antis and gatekeepers in fandom to describe a fictional pairing (or even just a character) that they do not personally like. often used as an excuse to attack and gaslight shippers (people who do like the paring) and other fans.

some reasons for things being "problematic" are that they are considered abusive, the characters are/were enemies, one is a villain, there is a large age gap, there is a small age gap, the relationship is incestuous, the relationship *seems* incestuous, one character is a minor, both characters are minors, the anti does not like the ship personally, the relationship is gay and loved by women fans, the relationship is straight...the list goes on.
Anti: "you shouldn't ship reylo, it's very problematic."
Shipper: "i really shouldn't indulge you, but how?"
Anti: "it's abusive because they're enemies and kylo ren is a fascist. also rey is child-coded and they are cousins."
Shipper: "uh...what?"

someone who doesn't care what other people ship in fiction and fandom, because it's not real and you should be able to enjoy fandom without gatekeeping antis. pro shippers may or may not ship a "bad" ship, but it doesn't matter because if you don't like it, you just click away or blacklist a tag.

pro shippers are sometimes people who are writing dark concepts and relationships for cathartic reasons related to their own trauma, and they are sometimes people who just like dark stories in general because they're interesting. of course there is the occasional pedophile, because that's impossible to avoid, but the majority of pro shippers are just people who care more about respecting opinions rather than sending hate.

Pro shipper: I don't really care what you ship as long as you tag it properly. We shouldn't send hate to people.
Anti: I agree. But you still shouldn't ship insert "bad" ship! It's really unhealthy because character a is 41 and character b is 18! You're a pedophile!
Pro shipper: This is exactly what I mean.
