I noticed recently there were a lot of fake me or people claiming they're dating Gamzee or Eridan or Karkat. I know for a fact they're all faithful to their wives. So we made a group to list them officially; people will know how it is now and stop saying nonsense.
Let's say that I was a thief, and I went behind you and tried to steal your cash. THAT'S attempted theft. But if I claimed that I had your money, then that wouldn't be close to stealing, because I never tried to go out and steal your money. Same with the fangirls claiming they are a fictional characters "waifu." If they went out and actually tried to steal Gamzee, or coax him into dating them, that would be attempted theft. If they claim, then it's not attempted theft, they're not trying to steal Gamzee, who btw is a fictional character, and really can't exist.
Once again: Claiming is not trying. A burglar is not trying to steal your money if he says he has it. A fangirl is not trying to "steal" a fictional character from you by claiming. That's like me trying to claim that I'm dating my friends boyfriend. I'm not even trying.
