It’s also yet another word that Reylos evidently don’t know the meaning of if they’d say shit like this:
anonymous said: reylos are pathetic. how can you guys like kylo ren? he’s a MURDERER
answer: Hello, anon, I could give you an elaborate answer, but I’ll follow your (lack of) logic and play along. Yes, Kylo Ren kills people.
But so does Finn. (image of Finn stabbing a Stormtrooper with a lightsaber)]
The post goes on with more examples from Poe, Han, and Rey, and ends with:

I’m… actually shaking? This person equated Finn’s actions with those of a mass murderer. Literally every single one of the examples she posted–Finn at Takodana, Poe at Tuanul, and Rey at Takodana–were killings done in defense of self and others, thereby justified, therefore, hello, not murder.
This shitty “answer,” whether in ignorance or dishonesty, completely avoided the point of the question and drew a completely false moral equivalence, trying to blur a crucial boundary.
And you know what, I have people in my line who killed in defense of their loved ones and homes when my country was invaded. They were not murderers. Look at that definition again: Killing =/= Murder. How dare you?
Funny, isn’t it, how this group is so quick to cry “It’s just fiction!” when it comes to their ship, but when it comes to defending their murdering fave they’re so quick to change the definitions of real-life words and insult real people.
