I mean, I barely EVER see any Rin bashing between Makoharu fans, yet she makes the Makoharu fandom appear to be vile and cruel.
I just wonder something, when she said
"I have a few MakoHaru friends, but the way I see some of you attack Rin like some sort of “pest” just pisses me off. "
does it mean “some of you” includes her friends? If not then why she mentioned them? If yes, then we should have a talked about the personality of someone who keeps being friends with people they don’t like and start bashing them ^^.
1. The canon problem: RinHaru fans scream CANON as often as MakoHaru fans, so we have nothing to talk here. Both is wrong LOL.
2. Rin bashing between MakoHaru fans, yes of course it exists. Everything exists in fandom. But to tell you the truth, all those bashing are NOT tagged. I only follow blogs which have extreme hate for RinHaru and maybe even Rin bc I love it. But no, no one tagged anything.
Those got tagged is more like… series analysis/thoughts to me. Can you consider a meta about how Rin is such a dick during ep 7,8 bashing? Nope bc at that stage he’s A REAL DICK and people could talk bad about him because HE WAS DOING BAD IN DA SCREEN AT THAT TIME. The same go for the “Rin stole Rei’s position” bashing, I totally agree that people can have negative feeling for Rin because Rei really deserved a spot in that relay, and because the ending of Free! is not a perfect one. Even in Japan people have mixed feeling about it. And those who hate it still bash Rin like hell. Rin actually “stole” Rei’s spot, in one way or another. Even when people are ready to sacrifice for you, it’s not OK for you to TAKE IT FOR GRANTED. Rin could totally decline it and when looking back at everything, he could still find his answer, with his respective team, but he didn’t. And this kind of “bashing” also come from Rei’s fans. Why the frick MakoHaru’s fan is related here :D???
When you take Rin as your favourite character, you have to accept the fact that he used to be a dick (11.5/12 eps, and that’s a lot), he treated his friends and kouhai like tools and trash, he almost stole a relay spot of a Samezuka’s swimmer, and he did take Rei’s spot. He’s the sort of controversial character,so bear with it if he receives more hate than a good character. It’s fricking normal ( º__º ). No one can tolerate a jerk (11.5/12 eps) anyway.
Consider the size of MakoHaru’s fanbase, they are still pretty friendly you know. RinHaru’s fanbase is smaller, but actually more aggressive and more prone to attack MakoHaru. It’s fandom truth. Do you remember a gif in which MakoHaru (then Rintori) is a threatened girl, when RinHaru is the one who attacks, and Reigisa just sits there drinking tea? If it’s not true why does it have so many notes? And I have this “tag viewer extension” so I can read people’ tags on it, mostly “True” “Hahaha damn true” “Oh gosh this is so true” so WHAT? RinHaru is no-way-a-friendly-fanbase-everyone-know-it. I know there’s still the good part of it, but the aggressive is more visible. Everyone knows.
It’s funny when they heard about Makoto hate and started defend like “Rin got hate as well”. OF COURSE Rin must got hate ( º__º ). He’s the bad guys 11.5/12 eps. Makoto is a nice one. You can dislike his characteristics whatsoever but he’s the good character, dare to deny it? Rin hate is more like “he hurt Haru” “he made a mess in Samezuka” “he ignored Nitori” “he stole Rei’s spot” when Makoto hate is like “he’s plain” “he has no characteristic” “he’s a doormat” “he’s desperate for Haru” “he’s sexually passive and unattractive" (LOL I’M NOT OVER THAT YET). Mind to state the difference? It’s also funny when they heard about RinHaru fans attacks MakoHaru fans, they started defend “vice versa is also true”. Because they don’t know there is a whole friendzoned Makoto blog for BASHING MAKOTO AND MAKOHARU ONLY THANK GOD and there’s that sweet fandom famous user who said “Makoto is useless for the show” and nicely tagged it as “Free!” - so people like me can track it out ^^.
One last thing (oops this is too long), RinHaru fans love to think that MakoHaru fans and multishippers don’t go to their tag, but we do, pretty often. So they can have loose reason like “there is Rin/RinHaru hate in the tag” when the biggest war I’ve ever see in the tag is when a MakoHaru said that she multishipped but she loved MakoHaru a bit more and received like 20 anon hate in a row ^^. RinHaru tag is pretty slow after ep 4, so I can track it very easy. They shouldn’t make up stories like that. It’s not very nice.
In conclusion, I can’t say that all MakoHaru fans are nice, but most of them are. And the most aggressive ones are still nice enough to 1) not tag anything 2) saying things with reason rather than “fuk u RinHaru fan u little sh!t” or friendzone-ing Rin ^^. This girl you talk about, her reason is invalid in my point of view.

The Daily Show tries to help white people understand what it’s like to be stopped and frisked.
“Because he is the type to want a deep relationship with someone close to him, he is normally thought to come on too strongly. However, he can continue to have a very good relationship with Makoto, who also likes to have deep human relationships with others as he does.
“Because Makoto strongly seeks a spiritual connection, he has a mutual understanding with Haruka, who also strongly seeks a deep relationship”
