HAHAHAHA. No. You just out-sataned (??) me with that ask answer. I DON’T EVEN WANNA TALK TO YOU RIGHT NOW, TIP. Go sit in a corner and think about what you’ve done.
I KNOW RIIIIIGHT????
ALEX, THIS CHARMING, CHARISMATIC, SMUG, ASSHOLE, FORMER INTERNATIONAL DRUG SMUGGLER, LARGER-THAN-LIFE-FUCKER, WANTS PIPER TO LIKE HER WHAT THE FUCK? SHE DOESN’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT WHAT ANYONE THINKS (REMEMBER IN THE LIBRARY SCENE WITH NICKY AND SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT HOW THEY ALL PROBABLY HATED HER AND SHE JUST DID NOT GIVE A SINGLE FUCK?) BUT SHE WANTS PIPER TO LIIIIIIKEEEE HER.
AND GOD I CAN JUST SEE HER WITH HER PATCHED UP HAND-ME-DOWN CLOTHES AND BOBOS AND BEANIE STANDING LIKE A LITTLE PENGUIN WITH EYES THAT BURN, MUTTERING ‘I WANTED YOU TO LIKE ME. I STILL DO.”
You know, I think you’re seeing Healy exactly as the writers want you to see him (I definitely did too until I read this). But if you take away his pathetic life and general attitude, what he actually says and does is so horrible there really isn’t anything that excuses it. I think you’re supposed to chuckle when he says women are bad at math and lesbians are dangerous, but never forget everything nice he has ever said or done has been completely self serving.
Never forget he threw Piper in the SHU because she was dancing with Alex, and never forget he was going to let Piper die. He might be pathetic, but he is a man in a position of power over women in an already vulnerable position, and he hates women. But seriously, read the link! It’s a good link :3
Noo I have to disagree with you, as much as he does all sorts of horrible stuff, he set up that whole ‘safe space’ thing in season 2 and the friendship between tiffany and him was great to watch
I saw the “safe space” to be completely self serving. He has set himself up to be the savior of women and he hates it when women show just how little they need him. That’s why he hates lebians, they are the ultimate insult. They don’t need men (see the rant on lesbians making babies “out of nothing”). He starts off season 1 as being the good C.O. right, he’s a little bit weird but predictable so the inmates trust him. The inmates slowly but surely stop respecting him, so he tries to gain that control back.
He goes to a therapist, where he sets his mind to what he believes is wrong and doesn’t listen to the therapist at all. He basically goes to get somebody to agree with him. Have you ever heard the theory that people that fail the police-test become bus-drivers (for example) so they can have that power over other people? Bus drivers power-trip when they can say they didn’t stop for you because you didn’t wave them down, or gives you a fine when the ticket expired 2 minutes ago (that you essentially don’t respect the rigid rules they set for you, that you don’t respect them). Healy is no different. He sets himself up to be the savior of the women of Litchfield, but the women don’t need him anymore. And that will set him off on a power-trip by something completely insignificant.
