Ok. I have a very important question/discussion for everyone right now. And don't be afraid to agree/disagree in the comments! I just want an honest answer.
Why do people hate fictional characters?
Really. I brought this up because I was watching some SasuKarin and SasuNaru ((don't hate)) AMV's on Youtube, when lo and behold, the comment sections were filled up with "God! Sakura is such a bitch! I wish she would DIE!" and "SasuKarin? EWW SasuSaku FTW!." ((btw, these comments were copied directly from the comment section. No lies here))
What's the point people? Really? You hate Sakura? And for what? Is her hair too pink? Her forehead too big? If you do hate her because of these reasons then you are the most shallow person on the face of the earth. You hate her because of her looks? Get a life.
It's stupid. Some even hate her because she's in love with Sasuke. That's utter crap. She's a woman and every woman, sometime in their life, falls in love. Could her love be mistaken for attraction? Of course but does that make her a bitch? Many say it's because she's whiny. I agree and disagree. Yes, in part 1 she was a little annoying but every 12 year old girl is. At that age they are immature and confused but I think that by part 2, she improved greatly. Every person, real or fictional has their flaws. It wouldn't be realistic if she was this totally badass woman who doesn't cry or fall in love.
Karin. I like her. She hasn't done anything to make me think that she isn't a level-headed person so she's ok in my book. But, just like Sakura, you want her to 'die' because of her attraction to Sasuke and her aggresiveness with Suigetsu. She's a fictional character people. You're going too far. If this is what you wish apon a fictional character, I would hate to hear what you think about the real world. And it makes me think that you need professional help.
Now on to pairings. I have never looked at a pairing and said, "Gross." Have I thought that some were a little far-fetched? Yep, but I don't make it my living to 'hate' a pairing just because I don't agree. And I especially don't force people into thinking that the pairing they like is wrong or stupid or gross. It's their feelings, their life. Let them live it I say! Grow up.
Also, Anti Clubs. Again with the hate. I know that we will never have full peace but it's sad that no one is making the effort to try.
I would love to hear any thoughts on this, negative or positive. Go ahead and say it, there is no judgment here.
