Perhaps I should not say more about people having issues shipping Griffith and Guts but as a person who has put pictures in the gutsxgriffith tag and does ship them I do wish to say some words about the ship and the fandom.

Please stop excusing Griffith for what he did. Yes, he was tortured for a year. Yes, it was a horrible thing he had to go through. But it doesn’t suddenly nullify what he did during the Eclipse. I like Griffith as a character because he is intensely interesting to analyze, but that doesn’t make what he did okay. Though it’s true that the choices given to him: remain sick forever or to sacrifice the Band of the Hawk, wasn’t fair, (surely though with witches in existence he could have at least tried to find one to heal him?) but raping Casca in front of Guts was also clearly completely unnecessary. And it still does piss me off that he discarded everyone for his own benefit, but this is clearly a representation of all the worst characteristics of humanity - a selfish desire for conquest at the expense of others. In any case, you can like a character and still acknowledge that what they did was shitty, you know? No need to make all Griffith fans look like heartless, thirsty-as-fuck, murder and rape apologists.

There’s a big difference between explaining and excusing.
