It's wierd how they think of her tbh. I saw the tweet you talked about yesterday that goes "Betty should be comforting and supporting Archie >:(". It seems like they just think of Betty as a prize for Archie....
it does! they want her to be the beautiful, perfect girl next door and eventual housewife for archie. betty would be absolutely disgusted to read how little they think of her. a lot of them honestly believe that, should archie express real interest in her, she’d drop jughead and screw over veronica to be with him. it horrifies me that there are people who legitimately believe that and want that. why do they have so little value for women?
i truly do my best to try and understand and respect all shippers– we all have our own likes and opinions– but i just cannot wrap my head around b*rchie at all. betty and archie getting together romantically would absolutely destroy both of their characters and their relationships with their best friends, but the stans just don’t care. they value them as a ship rather than individual people. i can’t relate. one of the reasons that i love bughead so much is because they’re good for each other. they help each other grow as individuals within their partnership. it’s so lovely and rare and healthy. b*rchie is the complete opposite. archie and betty would do nothing but hold each other back. they would be just another half-miserable suburban couple with 2 kids and a white picket fence. something that neither of them wants or would be satisfied with
