Where do people get the idea that we paint Anders as a saint? Every Anders fan I know is more than willing to admit he's got flaws. Difference is we can actually understand where these flaws come from and can empathize with him as a mentally ill human being who makes mistakes. Besides that, find me someone in Dragon Age who does *not* say seriously questionable shit at any point.
It’s because dragon age’s writing is flawed. But yeah we all acknowledge that he has flaws. The haters just want everyone to hate him. That’s not how it works.
