This really needs a laconic.
TL;DR. This page is too lengthy and boring to be informative.
Many on the list in the article seem to rule out Suspension of Disbelief by assuming that the viewer watching is automatically relating the fictional character to real life. I get that this is YMMV, so I cannot and won't make assumptions about every viewer, but I never make connections between a character in a fictional work and real life. If I think a character is whining to much I think he's whining too much in the context of that universe, not because he doesn't have to worry about where he's going to work and some of the other issues of living in the real world.
Also, same with insensitivity towards fictional characters. When willing suspension of disbelief is involved, I do not know if that matters or not.Edited by SullyXY
Did someone nuke it or something?
Yeah, I think this is one of those things where adding examples will just lead to endless arguing.
Isn't this just Unintentionally Unsympathetic? Like it's really similar, except the main difference seems to be that, with AD, the character is angsty about it.
