small brain: GLaDOS is bad

bigger brain: GLaDOS is good

expanding brain: GLaDOS is a complex character, and while we don’t really get to see much of it in the first game, but we do see a lot more of her in the second game, especially after Wheatley takes over the facility. GLaDOS has a long history of trauma with Cave Johnson and others, and while that can’t be used as an excuse for some of her offenses, but when it comes to the high popularity of defending Wheatleys actions, despite him not seeming to suffer from anything and his actions including betraying Chells trust, attempting to kill her directly, and telling her to kill herself, it raises some questions about the fandoms treatment to victims of trauma, which is why so many people are passionate about defending her.
