Mr. Darcy Haters
Now Mr. Darcy, on the other hand.... IS perfect! And yet, people persist in hating him. Why? Because they inherently hate the perfect character. It is a strange phenomenon-- the psychological implications are vast.
The other Darcy-haters have an even flimsier excuse. They just like to be contrary-- if everyone thinks one way, they think another. So because everyone loves Mr. Darcy, they hate him. It's really quite shallow.
And there you have it. No longer do you have to hotly defend when someone off-offhandedly criticizes Mr. Darcy. Just know why they are doing it.... and smile (superiorly of course).
