I really don’t get where everyone worries over *double standards* RE: Weevil. Weevil’s a morally gray character & the narrative supports that. When he orchestrates Thumper’s death he gets that dark confession scene. We’re not supposed to think the bridge or roulette things were right but we are asked to sympathize with what’s led him here. Doesn’t this make him a noir character like how everyone says L & V are and Piz isn’t? (Also Thumper would’ve still killed Felix somewhere else)

Since when does anything Weevil does slide by him without coming back to bite him? He bullies Wallace; Wallace is the one holding onto the security tape incriminating Weevil’s friends. He lies about why he broke into Lilly’s room to Veronica; she keeps her distance and he has to eat crow before she helps him again. He goes after Logan on the bridge; his best friend his murdered (and I loved the way how someone else murdering Felix is now Weevil’s fault. Because Weevil is telepathic and knew Thumper was going to kill Felix? who knows). He burns down Logan’s house; Logan buys his house out from under him. He orchestrates Thumper’s death (after going out of his way to get Veronica to hand enough evidence to Lamb that would get any other detective to at least investigate); he is arrested, misses his graduation ceremony in front of his sick grandmother, effectively destroying his dream of making her proud.

We know why Weevil does the things he does, and they’re never played up as being the “right” choice or ignored or go unpunished. Whereas Logan routinely gets a pass (mostly from fandom) (and also HELLO WRITERS DID LOGAN FOR REAL KICK THE NAVARRO FAMILY OUT OF HOUSE AND HOME? because IF SO, i think the “double standards” argument can be put to bed once and for all because no one tops that), and Dick, god, don’t get me started on how much Dick gets a pass from the writers…

If anything, Weevil might have the highest number of hard knocks in the whole show, behind Veronica that is…

That comment drove me crazy. Like fine Weevil’s not a character for you and you want to explain why it’s not because he’s Latino but you don’t do it with *colorblind* comments that show a major lack of understanding of racism and how to discuss it. And I don’t think you can ignore race and background when considering why Logan might ping too buttons for some people but Weevil won’t.

Yeah, and then their reasons for thinking Weevil is enjoying a “double standard” are flimsy as hell. I’m not surprised it all came out of defending Logan against “the fandom”; the folks who do that routinely usually don’t make much sense.

Q: I just moved in with my boyfriend who, while he’s a great guy, has NO IDEA how to do anything around the house. He’s lost when it comes to doing his laundry, loading and unloading the dishwasher, cleaning the bathroom,…

I read a college text book called Men’s Lives (it was for a gender studies course) and it said that a significant portion of men pretend to be incompetent at tasks they find emasculating, and that it usually means their wife or girlfriend or mother picks up the slack. Housework was #1 on the list of things dudes pretended to be shitty at.
