Happy 25th Anniversary to the character who has meant the most to me throughout my life, #harleyquinn ♦️🖤 .

I've said this before on here but I have always felt close to #Harley due to her abusive relationship or lack there of with the Joker. I spent years in an extremely similar situation- being repeatedly raped, gaslighted, manipulated into forgiving for that honeymoon phase, and playing it off as if everything were fine. I have always been pretty thankful to #pauldini and #brucetimm (and now @amandaconnerart ) for accurately depicting how abused women are seen as crazy for staying with their abuser/ as if it is equally their fault, and how relationships like this can be romanticized. Their relationship is still romanticized. Their relationship is still called just a cartoon. This character was the only thing that helped me understand I wasn't alone during a very severe time period of my life. She is manic, she is smarter and worth more than she gives herself credit for, she is unstoppable, and she is me. ♦️🖤 #batmantheanimatedseries #btas #batmananimatedseries
