why is it that when dean is being mocked, belittled, verbally torn apart, or violently beaten into hamburger meat by a loved one the fandom jumps to romanticize it by calling it “tough love” and acting like he “needed” it…

So Felicity making Thea’s complicated feelings/grieving
process for Malcolm all about herself and her dad did not surprise me in the
least, but like what has me cackling is these writers can’t even keep their own
continuity straight for their fave. She starts going off on how her dad “abandoned”
her and it’s like girl your mom spilled the beans less than a year ago. He didn’t
“abandon” shit, Donna just upped sticks and left him, and then threatened him
into leaving again some twenty years later! Stop trying to relate~ everything
in Thea’s life to you. You can’t??
