Ed has been FAR more predatory and frightening than Oswald. Oz never stalked, obsessed over and murdered his love interest. Oz has done some reprehensible shit but it’s been done from anger, jealousy and hurt. Ed stone cold straight up choked the life out of his “lover” and tortured/beat/shot his “best friend”. Ed deserves to be scared.
I didn’t understand Robin in his interview about not wanting Os to have revenge on Ed and now I do tbh. I view the entire thing in a totally different way now. Seeing the ugly reaction from the fandom to that scene I no longer want Os to do anything to actually hurt Ed either because I dont want this fandom to feel valid in their idea that gay men are frightening, violent predators & thats exactly what they’ll label Os as. Theyre already gearing up for it when he hasn’t even done anything.
also you know ive never even known where the harlivy is abusive too argument has come from ?? Like I legit just don’t know where it came from. I mean I know Ivy wasn’t always super nice to Harley but??? And then to compare that to the Joker / Jarley as if its a “check mate q*eers” is kinda horrifying.
but I guess in some way thats also an issue of heterosexual abuse being so fucking normalised.
