Tyler Lockwood simpleton or awesome?
BtVS sat every vampire as the same baseline personality. Out of all the vampires in BtVS, like ~1% of them are different. Angel, Spike etc. The rest are all the same.Yet again confusing narrative with baseline.
Alongside BTVS vampires you had typical martyrs, "oldsouls"(Master, Count Orlok, etc), psychopaths(the first few character we met that angel has sired), the typical Ophelia character(Drusilla), the manipulator(Darla, Angel), death-seeker(the submarine guy angel has sired), brutes(most common vampire stuff you see), romantic lovers(Spike to an extent, as well as the guy who got the whole heart surgery to get revenge on Angel), jocks(for example the vampires Dawn meets in S6), rebels(Spike), atoners(Angel), etc. Hell we even had a shrink.
"Vampire" just defines a setting the character is written around, but it does not limit its emotional range or behavior. Thus not every vampire will behave in the same way.
If women continue to put themselves in situations where they want to deal with an azze clown my sympathy is limited. Tyler didnt put a gun up to her head and while she was in a relationship with him she was popping her cooch on a 14/15 year old so plz. Nobody deserves to be forced/raped and treated like shtt but she never tried to leave.
I am sorry but that is still unaceptable.
Just like racism or misogyny, ANY form of victim-blaming is litterally something that should not exist. Just Because Vicki was not able psychologically to leave him, does not make her "LESS" than those who were able to. She is still the one being abused, she is still the victim, she is still NOT the one to put a blame on.
Buffy punched Giles in S2 because he wanted revenge on Angel. That's a sort of violence, but that got accepted.
Different kind of violence. I am talking about abusive relationships(and Buffy was quite abusive and it was clearly shown as VERY FUCKED UP and wrong).
As for GIles punch, right after that she breaks down in tears, giving a psychological reason to situation as well as HER reaction to both the situation and her actions.
Buffy does a lot of violence and when its unjustified, it is shown to be so(for example how she beat up spike or her punching Kenedy in the face for even implication that Buffy enjoyed having an army of loyal puppets to lead and is subconsciously trying to mess up her own life)
so yeah RELATIONSHIP violence is not something that should be tolerated. Its interesting to watch in fiction, as long as it has consequences, but inr eal life its NOT something you sit back and just watch.Posted 2/4/2013 9:44:37 AM #
i loved them to deathbut please,they've been pretty awful since s3.They were awful because Plec intentionally gave them no worthy scenes.Posted 2/4/2013 9:56:49 AM #
So not any violence then, but the domestic kind?Posted 2/4/2013 10:27:55 AM #
Domestic abuse. Abuse overall
VIOLENCE over while a negative factor, is usually something something that involves more than one violent party and is something that has varying degrees of reasoning behind it - be it war, self-defense, etc.
abusive behavior on other hand never has a justification. and never should have.Posted 2/4/2013 11:34:19 AM #
