Harley Quinn aka. Doctor Harleen Quinnzel… Let’s be honest here she is the prettiest and most lovable female psychopath on screen, in animations and comics… but for some reason, I can relate to her character quite a lot.
5: She Knows She Annoys People
Harley is very self-aware of how annoying she can be and knows that it just might get her hurt or even killed. Let’s face it, in the real world, you are often told not to open your mouth to the wrong person because it will get you hurt and I am always self-conscious about annoying people. So much so, that I now warn people that I will annoy them eventually.
4: Her Cringe-Worthy Pick-Up Lines to Her Beloved Mr. J
We are all known for making cringy puns and pick up lines when all up in some boy or girls DMs, well Harley becomes queen of them all as she tries to bed her pudding in Batman: The Animated Series.
Let’s be honest, I can’t be the only one who relates to this way of flirting, right?
3: She Had High Aspirations In Life
Let’s not forget that before she became the infamous Harley Quinn she was Doctor Harleen Quinzel of Arkham Asylum in Gotham. Being a doctor takes a lot of hard work and dedication, especially to work in a psychiatric hospital filled with the world’s craziest criminals, am I right?
It is a shame that she gave it all up for Mr. J, but the wrong kind of relationship such as the domestic abuse she receives from her “pudding” can ruin all aspects of your life.
2: She Wears A Smile For Her Man
In a violent relationship, you do anything to keep the abuser happy…
Her referral to him as her “boss” rather than her partner, shows her position in Mr. J’s life as not only does he think her inferior but she thinks that of herself too. She’ll do anything to keep him happy, which seems to include smiling on demand.
1: She is a Domestic Abuse Survivor
OHHHHH, here’s the part everyone who idolizes her 9because of Suicide Squad) forgets about…Harley and Joker aren’t “goals”.
She’s a victim, or more was, she seems to have become more of a survivor now.
Sure, she doesn’t handle it as well as real abuse victims would… becoming a serial killer and all that but she survives and she’s definitely a stronger woman from embracing the effects the abuse have had on her mind. She’s fierce!
