Okay I know this is going to sound fucked up and you can feel free to disagree but the more I think about the Miss Grundy and Archie plot the more I like it??
Not in a gross, ooooo I sHip TheM!!~~ kind of way but more so, I like that it’s being shown in a negative light.
like for real I think this is one of the only times in television that a male character has told another guy “yo your relationship with the teacher has to end it’s not right” and didn’t high five him or ask if the sex was good.
We also see the adult in the situation being predatory (when she’s driving in her car convincing him to get in)
We see the adult being manipulative more than once (saying/doing whatever she has to in order to keep him quite all while convincing him it’s his choice)
Like obviously it’s not perfect and I’d prefer if it did not happen at all BUT AT LEAST it’s not a remake of Pretty Little Liars where the relationship is romanticized and is one of the main ships of the entire series.
We’re being shown and told that a student+teacher sexual/romantic relationship is wrong (as it should be)
I think I’m in the same boat as Arin Hanson in why I usually play as the girl.
I like female characters more since they’re not viewed as seriously as male characters. Like in the sense of female characters can be tough and feminine at the same time without being portrayed as ‘weak’. With guys it’s almost always ‘I’m a badass’ and 'this is serious’.
I tend to like male characters like Aang (avatar), Gohan (dbz), Superman, Steven Universe, Marco (Star vs TFOE) & Ash (Pokemon) who’re dorks and want to have a good time but understand when it’s time to put your foot down. But I tend to find way more girls like that in media. Most of the time guys like that are the comic relief or are portrayed as 'working past their wimp factor’.
I dunno if my ramblings make any sense. But basically, guys in video games & shows can be 'feminine’ without being a joke.
tv meme: 10 male characters · chandler bing “If I’m gonna be an old, lonely man, I’m gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I’ll be the crazy man with a snake, you know. Crazy Snake Man. And I’ll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids won’t walk past my place, they will RUN. ‘Run away from crazy snake man!’ they’ll shout.”
