okay here is the thing


we have collectively as a society already decided it is okay to like male villains.

-everyone’s favorite part of die hard is hans
-98% of phantom fandom ships phantom/christine
-othello is, essentially, iago’s play
-dracula, hannibal lecter, the joker, hans beckert, patrick batemen, let’s not go crazy here

people make posts and write articles and generally discuss all the time how these men are engaging and the best characters of their canons and darkly sexy and interesting.

and the reason you don’t like cersei lannister— despite being one of the most well-crafted, engaging, fundamental parts of asoiaf— is because she’s a bad person?

lol, okay.
