rorschach makes me frustrated bc some parts of him i admire, and he is my favorite character in watchmen, but he is BAD. he kills without a thought which is fucking scary, he hurts people to further his own quests, he’s SUPER misogynistic and homophobic, and frankly a goddamn hypocrite about MANY THINGS.

but i also admire his sense of justice, i love that he is paranoid, autistic and small, just like me, and is still taken seriously. and his design is pretty cool….

is it possible to have a favorite character that is REALLY GODDAMN FLAWED and also to admire SOME parts of them but be angry at other parts?
