first off please dont hate me. second, IF YOU ARE A USUK FAN DO NOT ASSUME THAT I AM HATING ON THE FANS AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE ME "Being a hater" THEN DON'T READ THIS ENTRY! Now that I've the yelling over with, let me just rant for a bit. I have seen a lot of yaoi pairings since I started watching APH and that's perfectly fine with me. But there's one pairing that keeps getting on my nerves. That pairing would be USUK. When I found out that it was the most popular pairing in APH I kinda exploded. I  guess I can see why so many fans love this pairing because America and England are the two most loved characters in APH and because of their shared History. But I have found plenty of reasons to dislike this pairing that (in my opinion) outweigh the reasons why it makes sense. so let the bitching commence. Note that this isn't in any specific order.

1- It's WAAAAAY too popular. I know that this one's pretty nit-picky but I think we can all agree that if you search up anything Hetalia related you will find USUK. And at first I just ignored it but now I'm just sick of it.

2- Their relationship isn't romantic. They never show any implication of a romantic relationship. In fact, they kinda hate each other.

3- THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR WAS NOT ANGSTY ROMANCE! It was America breaking his brotherly bond from England.

4- If America went so far as to break the strong bond of brotherhood with England WHY WOULD HE EVEN CONSIDER ENGLAND TO BE HIS LOVER!

I think I'm done ranting so I'm just gonna list my requests.

You are a genius. Praise. Praise. Praise. I totally agree with you and I also have a lottt of reasons for disliking UsUk. Let me get the childish thing off my back first... UsUk spells U Suk. You suck. UsUk, you suck. Ok there. Now for my major reason!

Well... Two reasons... So, first of all, everywhere you go Hetalia related, you end up bumping into UsUk and UsUk crazy fangirls(Not all of them are crazy, though, I've actually met some that are pretty cool.) Can't I ship FrUk and AmeriPan in peace without having to find UsUk spams? It's sooo annoying.

And my other reason--Everyone states their personalities are "compatible" but I don't see any compatibility between the two. Am I the only one? I think America is too oblivious and England is too tsundere. It wouldn't really last long in my opinion. America tends to be... umm... well, a bit rude. That wouldn't roll well with England. America, I think, would also be too much for England to handle at times and vice-versa. England would get mad at America pretty easily since America is so accident-prone at times and oblivious; America would get mad at England for not letting him have any fun. I may be wrong in this, it is, after all, my opinion(And it is late at night...and I'm not good at stating my opinion.) I also have other reasons. I.E: They seem too much like family; It's not like their both THAT close country-wise; How their personalities are always changed in fanfictions; etc.

AND I CAN'T STAND THE FACT THEY MAKE IGGY A BEND-OVER, WHINY, "CAN'T DO ANYTHING WITHOUT AMERICA" CHARACTER IN THE FANFICTIONS. UHHHH..

And I actually used to ship UsUk before I realized I had no reason whatsoever to ship it. Now, I think about why I used to ship it and realized so much.    ~Poland Fabulous Smile~  and that's, like, my opinion.

Hmm... True. It keeps getting on my nerves too. First of all, the first week that I finished Hetalia (but still waiting for the new episode) I knew I loved FrUK and USUK to me is like, "Uh... okay...". It's so popular and other shippings need love to. Most of it is Hetero which needs more love. Since I started watching Hetalia, I can't help myself but to ship a guy x guy. But I never shipped USUK. I never had the will to ship it. I often see USUK posts in Facebook pages that I liked. That's kinda annoying.

I don't see any pairings as romantic. Uhh... well...

I'm not the only one!! I do not support slash in anyway, even though there are obvious pairings. I have reasons for this also.

1. England raised him.....That in itself implies some kind of fatherly-respect on both their parts.

2. They are shown as brothers. Adopted or otherwise. I would not years later declare my adopted brother my "lover" even if I had disowned him. They are not technically related, but still.

3. I really enjoy brotherly love, and I can't find ANYTHING in the fandom, and I get really annoyed when called immature because I don't ship it.

4. I also don't think they truly hate each other, there are years of bitterness there, but somewhere they both remember. America's Storage Cleaning shows that he remembers.

//end rant. I'm done. =D

so, I have something to say. I dislike yaoi in all it's forms.
HOWEVER, I like USUK, but only when it's UKxFem!US.
I have a couple reasons for this: (please understand that I am not bashing you in anyway, and i completely agree with your viewpoint (normal USUK does not work for me), however, I still claim to be a USUK fan, and thus need to give an explanation)
1)Fem!US (in my head) is the twin of America (and opposite, sort of), and thus, although US fought UK in a war, and broke up, I feel that Fem!US would have remained a little more connected to UK (Loyalists, Southerners, girls who love Brits, etc.)
2)Second, it's an excellent pairing (I think) - Fem!US is a tough, independent girl, who still needs appreciation and recognition; UK is a powerful, gentleman who knows how to give her what she needs. (also, I see Fem!US as being a motherly-type, and UK needs that kind of support when he goes through his lonely, depressed phases)
Now, I feel as though I just totally spammed you, and I do apologize. Feel free to delete this if you like.

You are my hero. :heart:

I don't get this USUK thing. I'm not a fan of incestuous relationship(that can be also implied to Germancest or Itacest or SpaMano), and I am very bothered and disturbed by people making so much USUK fanart. Finding a picture of England, then BAM! USUK. Finding a picture of America, then BAM! USUK.

And I'm very disturbed to see either of these two countries to be an uke. NO, they are very powerful countries. And the fact that some roleplayers made England a whiny manwhore in Facebook highly disgusted me so much.

And to think that they made a yaoi about the Revolutionary War....ew, just ewww. e__e Even some fangirls think that genocide and those other wars were yaoi romance.

I'm ok with UsUK but I find it too mainstream also. US and UK are more like father and son to me, which, if I look at them romantically, is disturbing. I agree with you with the whole Revolutionary War. It's not romantic. The relationship between America and England are no more than brothers to me. I can never see them intimately in love with each other.
I ship FrUK only because they share a lot of significant history together. They're close, closer than any nations I know, who hate each other but secretly deeply care for one another. In fact, they WERE married, according to history and England was the one who proposed the merging (correct me if I'm wrong, it can be France, but it was during WWII when France was captured by Germany and in order to get him back, England wanted to merge with him). There will be no England today if France wasn't there, and France wouldn't be the nation it is today if it weren't for England.


Anyway, it's all good, all Hetalia fangirls should get along, no matter what pairings we ship. After all, it is Hetalia.

Hehe, I love your reasons. They're mine too. Honestly I can add loads more reasons but, as long as USUK fans don't shove their USUK in my face when I'm just happily FrUKing, I don't mind them. In my headcanon, USUK just doesn't add up, and never will. My favorite reason in your list is:

USUK IS NOT ROMANTIC! Spot on my friend. No matter how pretty a fanart or fanfic, I just don't get the same feels as I do with other true pairings. They're a dead-end pair as far as I can see. America is even more romantic with Japan, heck even with China! He hardly even pays any kind of attention close to "like" for England, he just shows off all the time, and he does that with EVERYONE! So...

Unlike with FrUK. There are just TOO MANY THINGS FRANCE & UK DO EXCLUSIVELY FOR AND WITH EACH OTHER. Yes, even fight their brains off! And THAT IS ROMANTIC. ;)

Hello. Okay, so I am an usuk fan, but the only requirement I could find for my commenting here was that I don't assume you're a fan-hater. I don't. You seem to have compiled a list of relatively legitimate reasons explaining why you've decided you "hate" usuk. As a fan of the pairing, I assert my right to defend it as best and reasonably as i can.

Point by point--
1-- I don't want to start my refutations harshly, but unfortunately, given the order you wrote this in i have no choice. This is the only point which makes no real sense to me, as it has nothing to do with the content of the pairing, only the fans of it. If you say you aren't a "hater" you shouldn't start by ragging on the fans, be it for their attitude or for their populousness.
2-- The only canonically romantic slash relationship in Hetalia is SuFin (Sweden-Finland) and even that can be debated, as it's relatively one-sided. If you're looking for all slash pairings to be canon, maybe something like junjou romantica would suit your tastes better? Seeing as 99% of the pairings in the hetalia fandom are fanon at most, im not sure how this specifically applies to USUK above other hetalia pairings.
3-- I'm speaking for the masses here, but i really don't think most USUK fans consider the revolutionary war an angsty romance? the most romantic implications i've come across were that because of America's growing attraction to England, he felt he had to break his brotherly bond. And that was one doujin. For the most part, USUk fans see the revolutionary war as it was-- a rebellion by the younger, weaker nation trying to gain freedom from the oppression and exploitation of the older nation's ruler and government. The revolutionary story as told by hetalia isn't too far off from what many families experienced as the war actually happened. People were split between, among many other things loyalty to "king and country" (in hetalia, America's loyalty to England as his charge and friend) and their want for freedom and self rule. The need for freedom won out, and so America rebelled.
4-- Americans didn't break off from England for the hate of their people. Sure, due to propaganda and rallying and a general mob-mentality, anti-British sentiments did exist, but Americans harbor no intrinsic hatred for the British people. The rebellion occurred for political reasons. In America's case, he rebelled for his people-- he felt it was what they wanted and needed. He didn't do it to spite England.

I hope this makes some level of sense to you. Of course, just as I didn't have to read your entry, as it doesn't conform to my opinion, you don't have to read my reply, but in the interest of forming educated, well rounded opinions, i do hope you at least look it over. I gave your reasons a chance, after all! If you would like to refute my arguments, of course, you have every right to do that as well!

I hate when I see "USUK USUK" all over my Facebook newsfeed. Seriously, bitches. Stop. The pairing is overexposed enough. I also hate it when I see people like, "OHMYGAWD EWW FRUKK. BURN IT WITH FIREE. USUK IS SOO MUCH BETTARRR."

It makes me really upset that the crazy USUK fans try to shove the pairing down my throat. Same for the crazy GerIta fans. Sorry, crazy fans, but I ship FrUk, SpUk, Iggychu, AmeJap, and Germancest.
One person even told me, "USUK is soo much better than the other pairings. THEY WERE DESTINED TO BE TOGETHER. Stop being a bitch, and just accept it."

Just... Wow. Are you fucking kidding me?

ok my reason was England ADOPTED America... sure they said BROTHERS but i say FATHER AND SON meaning its the worst incest there is.. the USUK fans are turning England into a Pedophile

but my confession is in different AUs((mostly ASK BLOGS ON TUMBLR)) i dont mind it

But i get what your going at like... im going through doujins then i find the one FrUK out of the whole list and its broken link meaning 100% of that list was USUK and thats why it drives me nuts if i really dont want to see it... i flipped my shit on the 4th of July insulting all USUK fans because my tumblr dash was flooded with the shit and i said almost the same as what you said

If you have that problem next independence day, i recommend utilizing "Tumblr Saviour" .. you should be able to blacklist "usuk" "england x america" and other pairing specific tags and minimize the amount of the pairing on your dashboard. I think that would be a much less, er, destructive way to solve your problem?
it's reasonable that you were frustrated, but there's no reason to "flip your shit" on people who weren't aiming to insult or upset you. hate can only lead to more hate, mind you!
