Earlier this evening, a Ship Wars post for The Flash went out with a poll attached to it and the Talk Nerdy With Us writing staff sat back and watched as the comments rolled in both on the site and on Twitter.
What’s the verdict? A very resounding “LEAVE BARRY ALLEN’S COMIC BOOK (canon) LOVE LIFE ALONE.”
Some comments have been well-written and profound while others have been much more nasty and negative, trying to engage other readers and the writers in ‘discussion’ of Caitlin Snow being included in the poll because of her race rather than any other reason. Accusations of bias stating that WestAllen was the only ship described negatively in the article.
So, what is it about ships that make normally rational fans become so toxic? Is it passion or venom?
