i honestly really dislike cw’s arrow (i’d usually liveblog with how much i despise the plot and ollie too)
it’s misogynistic, it whitewashes so many PoC characters, the females are treated like crap/plot devices, and oliver is literally KING ASSHOLE of ASSHOLE MISOGYNISTIC PROBLEMATIC BELITTLING WHINY PUNK ASS BITCH THAT IS A GROSS WHITE BOY
(bc he incorporates and represents the show’s writing so he’s literally a character representation of the show’s misogynistic and shitastic writing)
also sam (captainallenwest) and i have came to the conclusion a long time ago that ollie’s a watered down, storebrand batman. (HAHAHAHAHA. CAN WE CHANGE ARROW’S NAME TO: BATARANG OR KNOCK-OFF BATMAN WITH SIDE CHARACTERS FROM THE ARROW MYTHOLOGY????)
also, he needs to stop belittling all the members of the opposite sex and he needs to stop acting as if he knows better compared to everyone else
also, why does his pain/angst/drama/problems make him think that his problems are more important than other people and their own issues?
he’s a pompous asshole who thinks only about what he wants and about himself.
while every other character is selfless and worries about other people. (plus, people forgive him WAY TOO EASILY and WAY TOO FAST—bc the show wants u to forget how gross/shitty he is, bc he’s the “hero” of the story and ur supposed to like/sympathize the hero/main character [i’ve taken english classes that focuses on storytelling and a hero’s journey and how to write a hero/protagonist]
yes, ollie does have reasons to want to protect his city (but so does everyone else but that doesn’t matter to the whiny pompous asshole hypocrite bc it’s HIS way or he’ll give u shit about it)
so yeah, i really don’t like ollie.
(i do love ollie/green arrow in dc comics—but not arrow’s take on him. he’s nothing like ollie at all)
