    Also, I resent the fact that every male character who actually shows emotion instead of being a stoic badass is considered “whiny” by significant portions of their respective fanbases. Toby Maguire’s Spider-man, Eren Jaeger, Steven Universe, Deku… just off the top of my head. It’s definitely a pattern.

    The point of these characters and their stories is that they face immense hardships, go through emotionally confusing situations, and experience great physical and psychological trauma… and they get through it. But in order to get through it, they have to be able to cry, to mourn, to experience pain in its fullness instead of bottling it up. They’re not whining. They are feeling. Living. Just like we all do. That’s what makes them sympathetic to the audience, and what drives their growth as characters, as people. So why do we always frown upon that???

    He’s only been watching it? Wait till he starts reading ahead I. The manga. Then he’ll have endless debates on if Bakugo is redeemable. I think he is

    Yeah, pretty much a problem Cyborg. The general idea is that being emotionless is how you show proper manhood. It’s stupid and it’s toxic but it is a very common idea. It also means that characters that show realistic emotions especially during traumatic times are viewed as whiny or overemotional.

    I agree with Cyborg.

    That a look at NGE and Shinji Ikari.

    He watches his Mother die. His father abuses him. He is forced to risk his live fighting giant monsters, is forced to nearly kill his schoolfriend, kills his “best” friend and is abused by an equally fucked up redhead.

    But yeah. He’s totally emo and whiny.

    Eh, there’s a difference between showing emotions and being whiny.
