If you think Harley Quinn is not a victim of abuse just because she “willingly” went with Joker who showed her who she “truly was,” then you probably haven’t watched any documentaries about cult survivors or have personally witnessed someone you know get swept away by a toxic person.
In many accounts of cult survivors, there’s a consistency that stands out: The leader of said cult was incredibly charismatic and told their victims what they wanted to hear. Many of these survivors were down on their luck and all it took to get swept in was someone who almost seemed otherworldly convince them that they were, in fact, special and part of some “plan” to save the world. Or maybe this person told them that they were “chosen” by some divine being. In any case, you have a lot of very smart and decent people getting swept in, and what ends up happening is these people end up changing every aspect of their lives for the “cause.” However, when and if common sense starts seeping back into their brains, they often keep quiet. They’re in too deep. If they start questioning anything, they are subject to all sorts of abuse at the hands of their leaders.
And sometimes it’s not something as extreme as joining a cult. Sometimes it’s just a single person who is able to manipulate another single person. I, personally, have witnessed this happen to someone I really care about in the last year or so. My friend changed every aspect of their life for this one person even to the point of cutting off his entire family. Everyone else recognizes that this person is toxic, but she tells him everything he wants to hear and builds on his ego, so he’s completely blind to it. Unfortunately, there is nothing anyone can do, because he is making the choice to choose her. I want to point out that he’s always been a good person, never lied, was always financially responsible, etc. However, he was always a bit insecure. When it came to dating, he rarely even tried, but would feel lonely and devalue himself over not being in a relationship. Imagine the power someone could have by making him feel special. It only took a year or so for him to start lying to his family (and because he’s never been a liar, he’s not good at it) and become less financially responsible. He practically throws away his money for her. It’s sad, but the hard truth is, if and when he realizes he’s being manipulated, he’ll be in too deep and it will be very difficult for him to get out.
That’s why I’m a bit bothered by the idea that Joker showed Harley who she “truly was.” There are so many people out there who are at least halfway decent who are easy targets of master manipulators. These people aren’t showing them who they “truly are.” They’re just really good at what they do.
Like, from a storytelling perspective, I get the appeal of Joker and Harley as a couple, but I feel like some people get very defensive when people point out its toxicity and try to rewrite canon to feel justified.
Harley Quinn !!!! by Seve
Loka Quinn Cosplay interpreta “Harley Quinn” al Romics - XXV Festival Internazionale Del Fumetto / Animazione / Cinema e Games (Fiera di Roma dal 4 al 7 Aprile 2019). Harley Quinn, il cui vero nome è Harleen Frances Quinzel, è un personaggio immaginario creato da Paul Dini e Bruce Timm per la serie televisiva animata Batman, in cui compare per la prima volta l'11 settembre 1992 nell'episodio Un piccolo favore della prima stagione. Nel febbraio 1994 compare per la prima volta anche nei fumetti, in Batman: Amore folle (The Batman Adventures: Mad Love) della serie Le avventure di Batman. Dall'ottobre 1999 è stata integrata anche nella continuity dei fumetti DC Comics comparendo per la prima volta in Batman: Harley Quinn, ambientata durante la saga Batman: Terra di nessuno. Paul Dini ideò il personaggio dopo aver visto l'attrice Arleen Sorkin vestita da pagliaccio in una sequenza, ambientata in un sogno, della soap opera Il tempo della nostra vita; fu poi proprio la Sorkin a doppiare per la prima volta Harley. Concepita come spalla e fidanzata del Joker nella serie, nel fumetto Amore folle si scopre che lo ha incontrato mentre lavorava come psichiatra al manicomio Arkham Asylum, in cui il Joker era un paziente. Innamoratasi di lui, decide di liberarlo per poterlo seguire nelle sue attività criminali. Il personaggio è stato originariamente doppiato da Arleen Sorkin nel DC Animated Universe (in Batman, Batman - Cavaliere della notte, I migliori del mondo, Gotham Girls e Justice League) e in altri media (Batman of the Future: Il ritorno del Joker e Batman: Arkham Asylum). Da allora, è stato anche doppiato da Hynden Walch, Tara Strong e Melissa Rauch nei DC Universe Animated Original Movies e nei vari videogiochi. Nella serie televisiva Birds of Prey è stata interpretata dall'attrice Mia Sara. Nel 2016 Harley Quinn ha esordito al cinema nel film Suicide Squad, in cui è interpretata da Margot Robbie. Negli anni il personaggio ha acquistato una grande popolarità, tanto che il fumettista Jim Lee l'ha definita il quarto pilastro della DC Comics, dopo Batman, Superman e Wonder Woman. IGN l'ha classificata al 45º posto nella lista dei migliori cattivi dei fumetti. In inglese il suo nome suona come harlequin, ovvero Arlecchino, e nelle sue prime uscite italiane in Le avventure di Batman (edizioni Play Press) veniva chiamata Arlecchina.
