Harley Quinn & Joker make me cringe

With birds of prey movie recently released and suicide squad movie back in 2016, there has been a huge uprising on Harley Quinn and Joker relationship memes and people wanting a relationship just like theirs.... if you're one of them reading this right now.... wake up sunshine because it's not all rainbows and happiness as the Hollywood movies have made it out to be.

I'm not a huge comic book reader (mainly because I just don't have the time or money to invest into comics), but the one thing I do know about the DC comics is the relationship between Harley Quinn and Joker. And it's not a happy one.

The Suicide Squad movie portrayed the relationship like it was all lovey dovey (if you could call it that) and that Joker would do anything for Harley... well... that's completely wrong. In the comics, Joker is very abusive to Harley and would drop her in a heart beat to save his own ass if they got into a bad situation.

He beats the crap out of her, chokes her, leaves her in a dungeon (where he even admits there have been other Harleys and she won't be the last), shots her and just treats her like utter crap.

There is even one point where Harley Quinn actually snaps from the abuse, beats him the hell up instead and leaves him. Which also leads to Harley Quinn becoming very "close" friends with Poison Ivy, which I definitely ship!

Knowing all this and this and seeing people post about how they want a Harley Quinn relationship just leaves me thinking, "So you want an abusive relationship... good luck with that." Knowing all this... would you want to have their relationship?? Because I know I don't.

If you want to see what it's really like for Harley Quinn with Joker... you should definitely check out the new Harley Quinn animated series (please note that it's violent with a lot of swearing and offensive things, not suitable for children).

That's enough with my rant on this topic, I'll catch you geeks on the next blog post!
