I just saw anti “artwork” (kind of) of Finn and Rey killing Kylo while Leia cries happily and thanks them and just…
I’m forever floored at how shockingly cruel and tone-deaf antis’ perception of Leia is. Is it a result of their youth? Of the dogmatic binary that Tumblr has where someone is either all good or all bad, and if they’re bad, they deserve to die and even their loved ones will be happy if they do?
You know, a subset of Kylux shippers had a “Gore Week” awhile back with days centered on, among other things, decapitation and vivisection. That disturbed me far less than the unequivocal joy antis receive from the thought of Leia watching her only child be murdered in front of her, and thinking that SHE WOULD BE ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED IF IT HAPPENED.
You can argue that Leia deserved a better son. You can talk about whether or not Kylo can or should ever be forgiven.
But don’t fucking tell me you “love” Leia when your greatest wish is to see her suffer what is generally regarded as some of the worst emotional pain imaginable (i.e. a parent watching their child die) and you’re so blinded by your hatred for Kylo that you genuinely think she’d be HAPPY.
If you’re lucky enough to have parents who love you, even when you fuck up, go hug them and fucking apologize.
