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

    @theyseekherthere It's okay! I talk about it on my personal Facebook sometimes. I didn't open up about it to almost anyone until a year ago and have tried to be pretty vocal since.

    "I had a bad day too one" - Batman as he hands Harley her dress she tried to buy

    @strsmydestination one of my favorite moments ever. She's just as much a victim as Batman & Robin. Always loved that he was aware of that. I miss that kind of Batman.

    @littlepetal I meant about the anniversary of the character but I always respect hearing about everyone's journeys - whenever/however they're shared.
