I get confused when people say that they love Roslin and Adama as characters but then refuse to admit or discuss the fact that Roslin was a tyrant and Adama is a spiteful ass and negligent and manipulative father and that Gaeta’s mutiny wasn’t 100% without merit.
*cough* all your bsg faves are problematic by design *cough*
But you don’t understand MY FAVOURITE THING ABOUT LAURA ROSLIN IS THAT SHE’S A TYRANT. Like, she’s a soft-spoken principled school teacher who steals elections and manouvers herself into power and has hardened military men wrapped around her finger. And she doesn’t even raise her voice while doing so! She’s a delight, especially because she’s problematic. I wouldn’t want her any other way.
