The Hannibal fandom is worse than the Sherlock, Supernatural and Doctor Who fandoms combined.
It used to be a fun place with silly gifs and dog jokes and funny edits. But now its a toxic place filled with idiots who attack anybody who has a different opinion to them and/or who criticizes the show..
The worst example of this is the recent episode where Hannibal Lecter drugged Alana Bloom, had sex with her, and while she was unconscious he killed somebody then used Alana as his alibi.
And everybody in the fandom is arguing that this is 100% consensual because Alana is attracted to him, because they have flirted in the past, because she’s the one who came onto him, and because Hannibal is “good looking” so why would anybody say no to him? (ugh! no no no do i even need to explain what’s wrong with that one?)
But hey, I guess it’s okay for a man to drug you against your will as long as you find him sexy! Oh yeah, I’d be really happy if my boyfriend drugged me without my knowledge. That’s totally consensual. *rolls eyes*
Ugh. Do people in tumblr fandoms even know how relationships work? Or what ‘consent’ is, for that matter?
Alright. Did we even watch the same episode? Because I’m pretty sure Hannibal drugged her after the sex, not before. She was asleep. The drugs part was shitty anyway, but it was in no way non-consensual sex between the two of them.
'Everybody'. Do you mean like 5%? Because everyone else can see it's pretty bad.
hannibal is a psychopathic serial killer.
This doesn’t make non-consent okay, but, it is apart of his character, to a degree. Serial killers can/will drug their victims, because, some of the time, they have no moral conscience.
No. Seriously. Read the books. Watch the episode again. And then realise, that, yeah, you can’t apply real relationships to serial killers because they are portrayed as manipulative/without a moral conscience for a reason.
