strong male figure

2

Ted Bundy is dissimilar to many other serial killers in the sense that he had a generally privileged childhood. He loved his grandfather, Samuel Cowell (who some suspect is his father, too) despite him having a short temper and a disturbing taste in pornography. Aside from that, there are no reports of instability in Bundy’s childhood. When his mother remarried, he was not close to his stepfather but this was only down to his refusal to accept strong male figures into his life. There were no reports of abuse throughout his upbringing and his mother was very caring, though he was understandably confused about their relationship.

Since Levi never actually had a positive male figure to look up to his whole life (and the only one who ever came close to that abandoned him before any real attachment formed,) I like to think that Levi sees Erwin as that strong, authoritative male figure he’s always yearned for in life. Deep down Levi thrives to be just like Erwin because Erwin is his ideal on what a real man should be like.

Not having a strong male figure affects both men and women extremely potently! Fathers hold such great pioneer responsibility.

The sons aren’t taught what it means to provide, protect +establish themselves, whilst the daughters tend to engage in abusive relationships, because they have no example of how a man should treat them, + desperately go on a quest to seek male acceptance.

10. Cersei Lannister (Game of Thrones)

Cersei Lannister is a cold, calculating woman who despises the restraints placed on her because of her gender and does everything she can to put herself in a position of power, even if it means standing behind a male and manipulating him. Cersei’s understanding of and ability to love is deeply flawed, but her biggest saving grace is the love she does have for children, and her relationship with her brother is a fascinating story in which I don’t think Cersei even fully understands her own feelings, especially as Jaime falls from power. To Cersei, Jaime was always a strong male figure, her twin, and everything she could have been if she were not born a woman. But, by this season, Cersei’s choices, including her choice in companionship, are coming to haunt her. As the season ends, she is pushed into a humiliating walk of shame during a powerful scene that takes a woman who always presented herself as very well put-together and strips her of everything. Cersei is an amazing character to watch through her highs and lows and one who can make me simultaneously root for her to succeed and fail.
