Episode 19: In Defense of Villains, "Problematic Faves" and "Trash" Ships
In this episode, Lita and Zee join Enthusiasm Girl to talk about what it means and how it's perceived in fandom when you write or read about villains or morally grey characters. Some fans are in it for the redemption, others for the whump, while others come to it purely for the wrongbad dynamics. But no matter where the impulse comes from, we dig into why there's nothing wrong with it, the implications of defining it as "problematic" or feeling the need to call ourselves trash for liking it, and why villains are just as important and necessary as heroes both in fandom and in the stories we love.
