Mom’s going to NC for work stuff this week. Goodbye peaceful and quiet household. Hello constantly crying dogs, father that can’t do anything for himself, and meatloaf with too much garlic.

"Also, your theory is just a theory" a theory supported by significant amounts of evidence, unlike your claims about Gamzee’s motives. 


Time to call bullshit.

Nobody is mad that Gamzee killed two people and plays with dead bodies. For all we know, that’s part of troll culture. Vriska had to kill people to feed her lusus, or she would be killed. All of the trolls kill people.

People hate Gamzee because he was a shitty “friend” to Karkat, who is notably a fandom favorite.
People hate Gamzee because he emotionally abused and manipulated Terezi, another fandom favorite, for 1-2 years.
People hate Gamzee because he is currently beating the shit out of Terezi, and flipping off Karkat while doing so, thus showing off.
People hate Gamzee because you can clearly see an active chain of events that he caused in order to make the Kids’ session go “terminal”.
People hate Gamzee because he did everything he did wrong to hurt people, not even to benefit himself or others, to straight up, unarguablably hurt people.

Vriska’s way of showing remorse was to admit she had done shitty things, but not regretting herself as a person because she was always trying to help everybody, even if it was for selfish reasons.
Gamzee’s way of showing remorse was throwing a bratty little pity party for himself, saying self deprecating shit and acting like a victim while continuing to do horrible, harmful, problematic things. 

And let’s not discredit Andrew Hussie as an author.
He wrote both of those characters to be perceived the way the general fandom perceives them. That being that Gamzee is a funny guy, but overall a malicious piece of shit, and that Vriska is a charming girl, but overall an overdramatic meddlesome bitch.

The difference between Gamzee and Vriska as far as moral compass is srtikingly clear if you look at it.
Vriska did harmful, bad things for selfish reasons but always with a hero complex and an intent to help and she never backed down from who she was.
Gamzee did harmful, bad things for not even himself, but just to hurt everybody around him and he sneaks around and doesn’t own up to shit.

You can’t measure a person’s character in the amount of bad things done, you have to look at the motive behind it.
If a guy kills another guy in self defense, that’s different, morally, than a girl who bullies another girl online until she kills herself.

It’s not about WHAT they did, it’s about WHY they did it, and if they are STILL DOING IT.

Gamzee has been under the control of Lil Cal and a puppet of Lord English’s will for most of Act 6. 

As for Vriska, she created Bec Noir not from good intent, but because she wanted a big bad to defeat. She sacrificed thousands of souls not because she actually cared about stopping Lord English, but because SHE wanted to be the one to do it. She abused Tavros because SHE didn’t like who he was and wanted a big tough Summoner. She has no moral compass, at all. She tried to help no one but herself. She should egret herself as a person, because herself as a person is toxic and abusive.  

Gamzee did not psychologically abuse Terezi because he’s under Lil Cal’s control.
He didn’t beat the snot out of her and flip off his best friend because he’s being mind controlled.
He didn’t manipulate Terezi into getting back her eyesight because of mind control, he made her feel bad for being blind, and then made her feel bad for being weak and fixing her sight, and he did it because it felt good to hurt her.
He didn’t pursue an unhealthy blackrom with his moirail’s flush crush because of mind control. 
He has not been under mind control this ENTIRE TIME, and he doesn’t hurt his friends because he’s under mind control.

If you want to attribute fucking up the Beta session to Lil Cal, fine, whatever. But he also did attempt to get under Dave’s skin by telling him all about how he made their session terminal, because Dave was the one who pissed him off in the first place.

So yeah, there’s no way he wasn’t at least LUCID through all of it, because he fucking bragged about it.

I’m not gonna get super defensive about Vriska because I don’t really like her either. Vriska did those things to benefit herself, and yes, that is selfish and shitty and she hurt people in the process. She also OWNED UP TO IT.
Gamzee did the things he did because he just wanted to hurt people, and he and all of his apologists aren’t acknowledging the harm that he, as a character, on his own accord, has done.

People can appreciate Vriska as an antagonist. They can appreciate Caliborn as one, even though he’s literally a horrible person who is even worse on so many levels than Gamzee. People can’t appreciate Gamzee as an antagonist because there are so many people trying to say that he ISNT one, which is bullshit.

Deliberately hurting people just to hurt them and hurting people to try to get what you want are both bad, but one is worse than the other.

Ah yes, please tell me how you KNOW that he wasn’t being controlled for those events. 

And he had Lil Cal back then too?? And that part was also crucial to LE’s plan???

And also, please explain why Gamzee killed everyone in Doomed RoboAradia’s session, in which the honkHONK code book (which was also crucial to Lord English) came from, when he still had access to sopor, if not for Lil Cal? 

She’s owned up to it before only to go straight back to doing those things. Who is to say she won’t go straight back again? Her refusal to change has been a big part of her. She had just went on a huge rant about how she was just being herself and that she shouldn’t HAVE to change. 

Because LE is already there, and he probably doesn’t care about Karkat, Dave, or Terezi. He doesn’t care that they’re there, he doesn’t care what they’re doing, because they probably don’t mean anything to his plot, given that they aren’t actively hunting him like Meenah, Aranea, or Vriska are. 
Lil Cal or LE or whoever have nothing(evidenced) to gain from Gamzee abusing Terezi, or snubbing Karkat, or taunting Dave.
Gamzee hurts people and then brags about it, and there is no canon proof that doing that helps LE’s plots.

Vriska went on that rant and then…what? She said she wasn’t going to change, and then all of her friends left her, her dancestor screwed their plan over, and she got her hair braided by Meenah. Whoa, that’s some bad stuff she’s doing and continuing to do.

He is already there but he can’t exactly carry out his plan the way Gamzee can. He cared about getting rid of Karkat’s relationship with Gamzee because Karkat might just be the only one that could’ve helped him. Dave has numerously been stated as one of the possible people to defeat LE. Terezi is a Seer of Mind that could discover Lil Cal’s influence, or figure out a way to beat him. Weakening her could be a big advantage to him. And you know what? Maybe Caliborn, the little shit that likes to harass people, is a giant sexist, and was trapped in Lil Cal with nothing to do but influence Gamzee into doing things, might have just wanted a spot of fun! 

Why does LE have to gain anything from this stuff? What does he get from destroying dream bubbles? Nothing. He does it because he loves the destruction and suffering. 

Gamzee was influenced into his rage by Lil Cal. He “bragged” about it to Dave because, wow, people do stupid things when in uncontrollable rage? Dave threw him into a religious crisis. So he wanted him to feel bad. He didn’t even “brag” at Dave from the right point in time. 

You neglected to tell me why Gamzee would rampage despite still having access to sopor. 

Vriska HAS “apologized” and “owned up” before, only to return to her shitty, malicious, abusive ways. I’m saying it’s likely she’ll do it again, especially in light of her saying she didn’t have to change. I’m saying that, yet again, she make herself seem like a tragic figure only to return to her fucked up ways when she gets back on her feet because she doesn’t even WANT to change.

always with a hero complex and an intent to help”

Please explain:

  • How she was trying to help Tavros by crippling him
  • How she was trying to help Tavros by constantly abusing him and harassing him
  • How she was trying to help Sollux by having him kill Aradia
  • How she was trying to help Aradia by killing her
  • How she was trying to help Tavros by forcing him to climb up flights of stairs and making him apologize for a disability she gave him
  • How she was trying to help Tavros by kissing him against his will when it couldn’t be more clear that he didn’t want her “affection”
  • How she was trying to help anyone by creating Bec Noir
  • How she was trying to help Tavros by spying on his personal conversations and goading him into a fight she knew she would win
  • How she was trying to help Tavros by MAKING HIM say yes to a dangerous journey he had already said no to

I have a question. My sister went to India recently and said local men gave her and her friends bindis and saris to wear for free, I just want some insight into why they would do this. I was naturally outraged when I saw her in a bindi in pictures, and even after she told me this I still think it was wrong to do, I just want to know why they would do something like that, can someone give insight to why locals would endorse such blatant appropriation of their own culture?
