Majim Thread

Recommended Posts

Well, of course it isn't physically impossible. What does that even mean? lol

 

Jim just doesn't swing that way though, at least from all he's ever said about the subject. If he's bi, he's never said so. 

 

And superseding all of that, of course, is that fact that Jim is already in a long term romantic relationship with another person. That should really be the end of it right there.

I understood what Ms. Teller meant

Technically if he's whatever, he doesn't have to tell us anything.

As a fan, I just like to see him happy.

Exactly.   Just see him happy is all that matters.   He doesn't owe any of us explanations.

I don't understand why some people are here if they just want to start trouble or degrade how others feel. If you don't like MaJim or what people have to say about them, feel free not to read the thread. 

 

I don't care what Jim labels himself as or what he does as long as he is happy. People who think they know everything about his private life are, quite frankly, laughable. Looking at a few of you...

Some ppl don't want to start trouble or degrade what others think. Some ppl don't share the same view, but still are trying to understand it. Some ppl give opinions because that's what a forum thread is about. And some ppl read 'MaJim thread', not 'We love Majim thread'. So some people may suppose it was ok to give opinions that don't exactly worship this pair. Some ppl might think maybe a MaJim lovers only thread should exist if that's what others fancy and don't want to answer questions.

By that logic, we should change the Jim thread to the "I love Jim thread" or Shamy to the "I love Shamy thread". Yeah, doesn't make much sense. Maybe you should think that over again.

Ask all the questions you want. Don't bitch when you get an answer you don't like. This is a place to appreciate their friendship, not degrade it.

I've always thought it was pretty self explanatory that this thread is for fans of Majim together. Just like with the threads for the rest of the cast. But lol, yeah, maybe we should open an extra thread for all of them where its made clear that you really have to love them to enter.

If I went into the Jim thread and said "I don't get why people are fascinated with him", I guarantee all of these same people would have something to say.

Funny how that works.

I wasn't joking when i said that about the thread, i think it will be a good solution. I wanted to ask, because i honestly didn't understand what was the meaning behind some term sometimes i read. Is that a bad thing? Did i ever said to anyone 'don't think that way'? I think i remember saying once in Jim's thread that i respect freedom of speech, i won't say that lightly, but under that light i also want to say what i think, and don't be attack like if i just insult your family. I said i like their friendship, if the gif was what offends you, well, i'll stick to words next time.

I don't think Andy meant to start anything or to even agree or disagree with anything. I felt her question was for clarification on what it meant to "ship" and nothing more.  But that being said, it is obviously a thread for fans who love the interaction, friendship, love and adoration these two have between each other.   Both are clearly very fond of the other.   And fans enjoy that.   Even the cast does know that Jim and Mayim are special friends and enjoy each other's company.   So, Andy, for clarification, this thread is respecting that special friendship the two share.   I hope that helps you understand the term ship.  I know some ONLY see it in terms of romantic/sexual between two characters, but...for example...I think many ship Sheldon/Leonard but not in a sexual way...just love their friendship and brotherhood.   I hope that clarifies things and yes, anyone who appreciates MaJim in terms of the special sweet friendship, love, adoration and respect they have toward each other can and does belong reading and participating in this thread. 

 

Honestly, all of the threads should be open to free speech, as long as it isn't inciting full on arguments and degrading anyone (cast or fan).

 

One more comment that Ms. Teller raised and that is, I would hope no one would think less of an actor or actress if they made choices that puzzled fans.  The example Ms. Teller used that if for some reason Jim and Todd went their separate ways and Jim did want to pursue a relationship with Mayim and she was open to it, would fans think less of him for it?   I would hope not.  And I would hope they would not think less of her, either.   Same goes with any of the cast and their choices. It was very upsetting to see that fans railed on Kaley for marrying Ryan when that was her choice to make.  I would hope that as fans we are mature enough to admire the cast through whatever they pursue or do (whether it be a new project, a new friendship or a new mate).

 

Jim has never truly labeled himself period. The media labeled him for him.   So we should never make any assumptions about him, nor any of the other cast.   Just like everyone that wants to label Sheldon, labels can be a dangerous thing because we create images in our heads that we have a hard time overcoming. Some were so convinced Sheldon is asexual and when they found out that he does have urges toward Amy, it was hard for them to accept.  Heck, many hated Amy just because she became a "girlfriend" to him.  That is a shame because they are missing out on a very sweet story over a label they created for the character in the first place. Same with Jim and his personal life.   So let's try and avoid labeling any of the actors.

Thank you! That was exactly what I was getting at! I have seen many favorite actors and actresses be horribly attacked because of personal choices that only affect their own private lives and have always felt it is unfair. (Just look at some of the things that are said to Kaley, for example.)

 

Also, I think that whatever the Majim relationship actually is or will be in the future we can certainly agree it is not one of ordinary coworkers. They are probably just great friends who are unusually close. Their fans simply make observations about the chemistry and body language between them.

 

While I do not think they have a romantic relationship, some people do and they are dismissed for having a fantasy that is unrealistic because it is believed that Jim does not have the ability to feel attraction to a woman. This is what is I meant by "physically impossible." There are many people (probably including some Majim fans) who have or have had relationships with both genders and to them a romantic/sexual relationship between Majim seems very possible. They are not making these observations because they are naive or deluded but because it actually fits with their own personal experience in the real world.

Yes, thats what she asked, and ofcourse she is allowed to ask that. I chose to answer the best way I could to that by showing a gif of Jim and Mayim being pushed together, cause thats what shipping is to me, wanting two people together, romantically or platonically. But then she responds to me with a rude gif indicating that what I showed her was silly. And thats what started this, cause really; if people liking to see Majim together makes you sigh and roll your eyes, then whats the point of coming into this thread. I just don't get that.

THIS. All of it.

I cannot stand that people dismiss the possibility of Majim simply on the basis that "he's gay", as if that makes him incapable of being attracted to a woman. How close-minded can you possibly be? I'm not saying any of this to say that there is something going on between them, rather that the assumption he could not have a relationship with Mayim - or any woman - is aggravating and offensive. People think that when they say things like that, they are "defending" gay people. Nope. You just look ignorant and blinded by labels.

They do have a relationship that seems to be closer than friends. Does that mean they are? No. We all know Jim is in a long term relationship and no one is discounting that. The truth is, we don't really know much about his private life apart from the small glimpses he shows us.

Honestly, when people say that a man can't be with a woman because he's gay, it's as offensive and closed-minded as saying a man can't be with a man. Or a woman can't be with a woman. Bi people do exist. No one here is saying that Jim is for sure bi, but to say he can't be with a woman just bothers me to no end.

I thought that Jim had indeed referred to himself as "a gay man" in some conversation, or in referring to the NYT article that described him as a gay actor/man (or whatever their wording was.  He talked about it being matter-of-fact and that it made it less of an "issue" (in not having to make a formal "I'm coming out" kind of statement, I take it.)

 

So, I think he has identified himself as a gay man, and though that doesn't preclude sexual attraction to a woman, I suppose, I don't think that he's ever really implied anything like that.

Of course, we don't know what goes through his mind, but I also wouldn't want to ascribe feelings to him that may not exist simply because some people want those feelings to be there.

 

I have no doubt that he has a lot of love for Mayim and that they may be very close, but I don't know that that means one can extrapolate that into something more.

 

As long as he's in a relationship with Todd, I don't think it's respectful of him or Todd or Mayim to be harping on the idea of him getting together with Mayim or assuming anything about his relationship with her that he has not implied.

 

Of course anything could happen, but that doesn't mean that it will or it must.  Until Jim says otherwise, I would rather take him at his word (that he gives in the way he lives) that he is committed to Todd and that he is just friends with Mayim.

Literally no one said there was anything going on with he and Mayim.

Speaking of respect, I see a lot of disrespecting Jim's personal life in other threads by speaking of him in a way that if he saw, he would probably get a restraining order.

I like mayim and jims friendship but thats all there is. Friendship. Mayim has deep respect for jim. and todds relationship. Just look at her glsen awards speech she gave for jim and todd.

I dont see why ppl romanticize mayim and jim ..yeah.they are close friends but some ppl are blurring the lines of shamy and jim and mayim. Shamy isnt real, as much as i want it to be. Jim and mayim is. Todd and jim are in a committed and loving relationship and creating romance.between jim and mayim is kinda disrespectful imho. We all can dream, hell we all have secret fantasies. I know i do but as long as we dont post our fantasies to the real world, like on the actors instagrams, tumblr, etc...its all good.

Again, no one was suggesting Jim and Mayim in a romantic way or indicating something was going on between them.

Everyone knows Jim is in a commited relationship with Todd. There's no need to defend something that was never challanged.

I think "platonic love affair" is best description.They are example how great friendship can work on purely platonic level and have deep closeness aspect. I would say it's pretty rare to have both in the same place emotionally in friendship between man and a woman but it's possibility. I think these two are very sure where they stands about each other, and that's the thing which gives them freedom to flirt and make "lovey dovey" comments to each other, without fear of misunderstanding. I believe this connection and chemistry in real life is what made tricky bet like "let's get Sheldon a girlfriend" paid off so good in the end.

If people want to see disrepect...look at the downright porn out there going around about Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman (both in character and as people).  It is amazing how downright pornographic that stuff is allowed and yet it seems no one bothers to think about how disrespectful it is to Sophie Hunger and Amanda Abbington.   Yikes, that stuff is downright scary.  

 

I don't think anyone has been disrespectful here of Jim or his relationship with Todd just because they enjoy the sweetness between MaJim.  If there was that kind of disrepect happening, I think almost all the regular posters of this thread would be on that immediately to stop it from happening.

Omg. The Sherlock stuff ive seen on tumblr. Wow.
