THIS. Those fucking scenes make me love Eren so fucking much because he doesn’t give shit for who you are, what gender you are where did you come from and what other people tell him about you.
Even if it’s his own father who tells him something he still insist to see for himself and decide over his own opinion. [in this case whatever to be friends with this girl or not].
And the second scene? Look how simply he sees this, how easily he wraps his brain around killing 2 men. He doesn’t even see them as human. A kid sees it so easily. That being born a human doesn’t mean you’re a human. He says it to his father without a shred of regret.
He just got rid of dangerous beasts. They weren’t human, they only resembled human beings. Why? Because they killed those innocent people, because they kidnapped this girl. And in Eren eyes such people don’t deserve to be called human, hell, they don’t deserve to breathe.
And I absolutely love this about him. He doesn’t give shit about whats the “right” things to do according to the society. To make lots of friends and sit quietly waiting for the police to be too late to save someone he could have [and did] save.
He also doesn’t give shit about people saying he’s weak and that his dream and goal are bullshit and impossible to achieve. He doesn’t allow others to decide for him, he tries for himself and checks and eventually breaks his own limits. Because it’s how he lives his life and in my eyes it’s stunning.
