UGH KYRIEEEE!!!!!!!!! the new episode of Orphan Black is SO GOOD YOU MUST WATCH! but, ugh. some of this fanbase mindboggles me, man! they're always sticking up for Vic. didn't he hit her? i remember in episode one i could've sworn they mentioned Vic having hit Sarah a couple of times. I just don't get how people support this character when he was violent toward Sarah ;-; CAN WE DISCUSS THIS OR?
WE CAN TOTALLY DISCUSS THAT!! i haven’t seen tonight’s episode yet but ugggggggh that is super gross. there are definitely references to vic being violent; i think felix has explicitly called him abusive and sarah has a line in the pilot where she says “i hit him first this time” which definitely implies that it’s frequently the other way around. like, there is technically nothing wrong with appreciating characters who are shitty people, but woobifying and excusing that shittiness/insisting it isn’t actually there is really icky. liking vic is one thing, but refusing to acknowledge the fact that HE IS ABUSIVE is another. :/ i am not surprised since this happens like all the time in fandom, but it is always really tiring and angering and just gross no augh stop whyyyyyyyy
