Today I am here to talk to you about something, and that something is Cam. It’s often ignored by the iCarly community, and only thought of as friendship. People will always say “Do you ship Seddie or Creddie?” “Do you think Seddie or Creddie will be endgame?” “Seddie or Creddie?”, but how come we never hear “Do you ship Seddie, Creddie or Cam?” “What do you ship on iCarly?” “Do you ship Cam?”? Even on iCarly itself. In iStart A Fan War, it’s all “SEDDIE!” “CREDDIE!” “I’m not dating Freddie, Freddie isn’t dating Sam. We’re all just friends.” I don’t know about you, but I think in reality there would be at least ONE Cam shipper there. What about Cam? Everyone is all about Seddie and Creddie, and I’m not saying that’s bad or anything, I respect your ships, but please, remember Cam, too. Cam has its moments, just like Seddie and Creddie, and it also has its shippers, so please remember that it exists, too.
Now, some people come up with many reasons why Cam won’t happen, like the following:
"Cam won’t happen, Carly and Sam aren’t lesbians, they’ve dated guys before!" - That’s no reason to say it can’t happen…have you ever heard the term bisexual? As in, someone attracted to both men and women? Look it up. They also could maybe be exploring their sexuality, or maybe, just maybe, trying to hide their feelings for each other because they’re scared of what people might think.
"Cam won’t happen because Sam is in love with Freddie!" - Just because she is/was in love with Freddie doesn’t mean Cam can’t happen. People grow older and fall in love with different people, barely anyone only falls in love with/dates only one person their entire life.
"Cam won’t happen, they wouldn’t put a lesbian couple on a children’s show." - Well, first of all, I’d like to say: Lesbian is not a bad thing. Lesbians are women attracted to women. What is so wrong about that? It’s who they love and it’s what makes them happy. It’s just as right as any straight couple. A lesbian couple on a G-Rated show wouldn’t be an awful thing that would worry all parents, it would be proving a point that there is nothing wrong about girls loving girls.
Now I’ve proved your points wrong, let us talk about Cam moments, and why they make a great couple.
(I would just put it as a tumblr photo but it’s not working.)
Someone pointed out that Carly appears to be wearing lesbian pajamas. Could this be a gay pride thing? *note my sarcasm* No, you’re right, she’s just wearing girly pajamas or is being supportive of gay people… *note my sarcasm*
Second of all, they’re so close. Even for best friends. They’re constantly leaning on each other’s shoulders, looking at each other and smiling, cuddling on the couch, etc. Sam pushes anyone who lays a finger on her away, except for Carly. *note my sarcasm* But you’re right, all best friends are extremely cuddly like that… *note my sarcasm*
Why I want Cam to happen is all of the ^above^, they’re so cute together, it would prove a point that being gay or lesbian or bisexual is okay, and i’m pretty sure if it happened anyone who wasn’t homophobic or an extremely hardcore Seddier or Creddier would start to ship it.
I mean, come on, even if you’re reading this and you don’t ship Cam, if you aren’t hardcore Creddie or Seddie, and you support gay people, you would be glad if it happened, wouldn’t you? It would prove a point, and also be the first gay/lesbian couple on a children’s show.
If you didn’t ship Cam before reading this, I hope you do now. And if you already did, rock on.
