I've been thinking about how the antis insist that Snape's bullying makes him a horrible person, END OF STORY. I think some of this is the urge to define boundaries & keep safe from abusers. Bullies & abusers can make situations confusing & complicated and they often have plausible reasons for what they do. IRL it can be important to shut off discussion and label someone a bully if they're hurting you, and I think the antis may be practicing this skill in a safe forum on a symbolic target.
Yes, it’s definitely possible. There’s such a level of disconnect going on, it’s staggering.
I would give them rather more credit if they also felt the same way about the Marauders who were also canonically bullies, and/or if they weren’t so nasty to those people who post positively about Snape.
The behaviour they deride Snape for is the behaviour that we often see repeated over several posts. Which, I suppose, ironically, supports our point about cycles of abuse…
