Okay, I’ve seen a lot of theories regarding the titan shifters, but one that is pretty heavily implied in canon is ignored. Could Eren and Ymir be related? let’s begin with the obvious, these two look a LOT alike. They have the same build, hair color, skin tone, and facial structure.

Further evidence is in their titan forms.
While all the other titan shifters resemble corpses, these two have a feral, almost animal-like appearance with long hair, sharp and visible teeth, incredibly muscular builds, and very narrow jaws.
What else are these two capable of?
Titans listen to both of them and clearly see them as great figures. Clearly this isn’t something all titan shifters can do since Reiner and Bertholdt weren’t able to control the Titans.( Annie also has this power, but since her command was pretty simple (eat her) and since she has no notable physical characteristics shared with either of them, I’m going to assume that she is not related to either of them.) And among the Titan shifters, only one has been able to convince Titans to do exactly what he wants when he wants it.
While it’s become clear that he can’t be Grisha since the Ape Titan was unaware of what the 3DMG could do. but none the less, many people have pointed out his physical similarities to Grisha.This leads me to believe that the three of them are all members of some sort of Titan royalty that the lesser Titans respect and worship. This could be the reason Grisha managed to avoid the fall of Wall Maria and was able to turn Eren into a shifter.
TDLR; Eren and Ymir may be related and possibly members of some sort of royal family.
If you have any evidence that could support or disprove my theory (or you just wanna hear my numerous headcanons), please share, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
How long until the 15 year olds take over this post with their garbage
I’ve stopped being 15 years old long enough that I have the privilege of occasionally saying something that is not garbage so let’s try to pull it off.
What you are trying to express with this comic is problematic. The idea that tumblr or more specifically social justice activist don’t know that these people exist is not only false (they do), but feeds into a shallow narrative of what social justice is and how it should relate to the individual.
As the name implies, social justice is social, the opposite of individual. As an individual you are entitled to your opinion. You have no problem being called faggot? You’re right. Want to try your bindi on your white friend that looks supercute in it? There is no social justice police going to stop you from that. But the moment in which you don’t recognize that no matter what your opinion is, and no matter what your feelings on these issues are these actions harm your group at a societal level, then you are wrong. Not as a matter of opinions anymore, but as a matter of facts.
Cultural appropriation (bindi/dreads), microaggressions (faggot/racial prejudice), lack of representation (transexuality awareness) and claims of “reverse sexism” are hurting minorities, no matter what anyone’s opinion on these issues is. Research out there that shows that all the problems you are tackling here harm at a societal level the same people you have depicted here as not affected by them at an individual one.
As an example, I have OCD, and I really do not care about people who say things like “oh I’m so OCD”. I understand that they mean no harm to me, I understand that their ignorance is not their fault, and I understand that is just a word. I don’t care about all this. BUT when this illness keeps being trivialized as a character quirk a lot of bad shit happens at a societal level: people getting told they should just get over it, people who fit the diagnosis not recognizing that they have it because OCD is wrongly represented, people being denied accommodations for their disability because OCD is not so badand so on. Did this ever happen to me? No. It didn’t affect me as an individual (yet). But it does affect me society, and it is my duty as a member of a larger group to take a step back, to realize that not everyone is going to be as lucky as I am, and realize that my individual thoughts and experiences do not matter when other people out there are suffering from the results of that harmless ignorance I could easily ignore based on my individual experience. And after I’ve done that I need to call out that ignorance, because the moment in which I justify that ignorance on the base that as an individual, I am not affected by it is the moment in which I become the oppressor of the same minority I belong in.
Kudos to you for this excellent response. The distinction between individual issues and societal ones is really important.
I think the most important thing is to educate yourself about these issues. Of course there are people out there in marginalized groups that don’t feel they are marginalized in certain ways, or they don’t care enough about certain issues in relation to bigger issues. Eri doesn’t give a single fuck about cultural appropriation in the context of his own culture (he’s fine with whities like me celebrating Dia de los Muertos) but he is also aware of what it is, how it hurts people, and is careful of how he appropriates the cultures of others (like Japanese culture).
You should educate yourself about why others consider these issues to be problematic, and be prepared to defend your assertions as to why it’s okay to say “faggot” or wear headdresses to frat parties. “Only 15 year olds care about this stuff” is not a good defense, sorry.
