Whoa, lyra, miscommunication!
Sorry! I never meant to imply that you yourself are ignorant of dangerous men, or to be so arrogant as to instruct you on how to parent your daughter. That quiz was made in fun, for fun.
These posts come from my fascination with the theme, constant in folk tales and fiction since god knows when, that men who are, almost unarguably, monsters, are capable of real, true, sincere, mature love. It's a Beauty and the Beast syndrome, IMO: That there is one woman (monogamy fantasy) with whom the monster can experience true love. Women seem to have a love affair with this kind of love affair, because, IMO, they wish they were the woman who was so loved that they could convert such a horror of a man. Almost every heterosexual woman seems attracted to that fantasy -- but I'm not saying that's your
motivation for wanting to see Michael fall in love!
Personally, I'm prejudiced against the Beauty and the Beast theme. I think it encourages young women --well, women of any age-- to think, "If I love him enough, I can make him change," and to make excuses for monsterous behavior, or to blame themselves if the monster doesn't change.
I can't believe any sane woman would fall in love with Michael, if she knew everything about him. I'd hope a sane woman would turn his sexy ass in! I applaud BH's writers in that the women who're with Michael are screwed up.
I agree that it would interesting to watch Michael wrestle with an emotion with which he's unfamiliar, and to struggle between protecting the woman he loves from the dark world he's not willing to leave, or which won't leave him alone even if he did try to change or modify his lifestyle. My long-winded point has been, I just can't buy such a storyline, ever, about a man who commits terrible crimes so easily.
We'll both get to see what BH's writers decide he's capable of!
