he’s being emotionally manipulative and using Thor’s weakness for Jane to get what he wants
because he’s a villain
stop trying to make everything Loki does into some kind of sob story he’s literally saying this to try and trick Thor not because he gives a shit about how happy he is
I think a lot of people mistake Loki for a sympathetic character because he’s so very emotionally manipulative
it’s almost like
he’s not just manipulating Thor
but he’s manipulating the audience as well
I mean, remember that this is a minute after Loki taunted Thor with “Perhaps when we’re finished here I’ll pay her a little visit myself.” I mean, explain to me how that threat is thinking about Thor’s happiness.
Lots of women love Loki and make every one of his abusive and threatening behaviors into a sob story worthy of topless cuddles because lots of women don’t know how to recognize assholes before they fall for them.
I’m about to blow your mind but you know who else was emotionally manipulative with a tragic backstory?
Makes that Germany scene with the old man refusing to kneel even cooler/sadder.
I’d argue that the inability to recognize emotional manipulation isn’t determined by gender but actually lack of experience with emotionally manipulative people. Not all people who initially supported the Hitler regime were godawful or women.
I know I know. I just brought out the Hitler comparison online. But it worked, y’all, it worked.
