    Why is it that straight people can have as many destructive romance narratives as they want but any time a same-sex ship shows even the slightest hint of toxicity and co-depedency everyone loses their minds?

      I don’t know how the straights think but I’d call them out in a heartbeat as well!

      I just don’t get why I see so many fans that root for this toxic relationship. I see it as Eve being obsessed with her abuser and I don’t think it’s hot.

    Tbh, I could never see them in a relationship, but I still love them together, if that makes any sense. I think they have an interesting, but toxic dynamic. I really don’t mind villaneve as queer representation in itself, yet it is part of a larger, more concerning pattern of queer representation constantly being linked to twistedness and darkness, which I acknowledge. It makes me a little perturbed that this is how queerness is often represented, but I’m honestly still happy to watch the show because I enjoy it a lot.
