why… why do people hate Holden? they really find bulshit reasons to do so??
I… don’t… know….?
I’ve seen people complaining about book!Holden being a womanizer so it makes him sexist by default which… lmao couldn’t be farther from the truth? just because he was popular with women and had more than one girlfriend before Naomi doesn’t make him sexist? especially since he was breaking up with them every time he realised he wasn’t in love with them instead of leading them on, which imo shows how respectful he is of his partners?
and tbh I’ve seen people hating him because he’s your typical straight white boy and okay fair enough but then they worship Miller? and they don’t even realise that Holden being “a dick” is him having PTSD after the Cant and especially after Eros??? like wow the mental gymnastics here
