To all of you in the Hetalia fandom…
If you have any shipping names for Japan, please do not use the shortening “Jap”. "Jap" is a deeply derisive term for the Japanese people and is considered a racial slur.
“JPN”, which is the universal shortening of “Japan” used in economics, politics, the Olympics, etc.
“pan”, the last three letters of “Japan”, instead of the first three
“Ni”, the first two letters of “Nihon”, or “Japan” in Japanese
Thank you for your time.
