I’ve been told by lots of antis that we shouldn’t sympathize with Kylo Ren because he had loving parents and was probably a very privileged child. I usually end up bringing up that, while that is all true, Snoke has been manipulating him since before he was born, and the antis are just like “Yeah but that still doesn’t change the fact that he chose the dark side. A lot of us had messed up childhoods and we didn’t become psychopaths.”
And I’m just like, GIRL. I don’t think you can compare human childhood trauma to a dark wizard fucking with you since you were a fetus. We’re talking about dark magic supernatural out of this world manipulation. It’s so wild that that would even be considered in the same ballpark. Kylo Ren is a murderer and an overall villainous little shit but come on. If any of us grew up in his position we’d be doing the same shit. (Not defending his wrong actions at all, but, look bitch, you’d be doing the same shit if Snoke was fucking with you like that.)
Not to mention, he fought Snokes’ temptations off for like 23 years! BITCH. That’s a long ass time. I know my weak ass would’ve been seduced by age 10.
