I really don't understand why Frozen fans hate Hans and the Hansdom. I mean you're fans of Frozen too so why do they give you so much grief? Hans was kinda a crappy villain and even if he was a good one, aren't people allowed to like villains?

I’m going to cut the shit and tell you exactly why Hans and the Hansdom gets so much hate, and it has very little to do with Hans being the villain of Frozen.
From his shallow motives to his cheap, pull-the-rug-out-from-underneath-the-audience, shock value reveal; Hans is a lame villain compared to the other more sinister and profound Disney villains out there. There’s no disputing that.
No, the main reason Hans and the Hansdom are given so much shit and uncalled for hate is because Hans is that common denominator of a character in Frozen that impedes and could potentially destroy all the other, more major ships in the Frozen fandom.
Unlike other Disney villains where their endings were either met with death or a closed epilogue, Hans’s fate at the end of Frozen was left open and ambiguous. Leaving his character the ability to diversely progress in the Frozen story. He can either stay the villain or change and redeem himself. This possibility makes Hans a viable threat when it comes to shipping.
Hans poses as a threat to Kristanna because Hans and Anna did share a little bit of romance at first (even though it was a huge lie and wasn’t at all authentic), so there is, although a very low possibility of Anna and Hans giving it a real shot. But, honestly Kristanna will forever remain a 100% canon ship in Frozen. Kristoff and Anna were specifically designed to compliment each other, so there’s nothing to worry about when it comes to Hans impeding on KA. It’s not going to happen, ever. Kristanna is here to stay.
Hans also poses as a threat to the beloved cross-over ship Jelsa, because if he does in fact redeem himself, his chances of getting with Elsa are pretty plausible. But, I see no point in getting upset over Hans in this equation considering Jelsa has a snowballs chance in hell of becoming canon. Elsa is owned by Disney and Jack Frost is owned by DreamWorks, both are from completely different animation studios, and rivaling ones at that. Katzenberg would probably rather kill himself or Jack Frost off than collaborate with Disney ever again. (The whole reason DreamWorks even exists is because Katzenberg hated Disney so much that he created his own animation studio to take down Disney.) Yeah, there’s bad blood there.
What all this Hans and Hansdom hate boils down to is simple ship wars and conflicting headcanons. It’s all superficial and juvenile. It’s straight up bullshit.
Now, Hans posing as a threat to Elsanna - the most popular ship in the Frozen fandom - is huge and probably causes the most fueled hatred towards Hans and the Hansdom. Hans possibly redeeming himself in the sequel gives him a viable chance of befriending Elsa and potentially becoming a love interest for her. Out of all the possible ships that have a fighting chance of becoming canon, Helsa is the most likely competitor and that’s terrifying for hardcore EA shippers. Although, it’s not like EA will ever in a million years become canon because incest is still and most likely always will be frowned upon. Disney would never have two sisters become romantically involved with one another. It. Is. Never. Going. To. Happen. It’s absolutely ludicrous to think otherwise.

FINALLY SOMEONE SAYS IT WITH EVERY WORD!!!! GOD BLESS THIS POST!!!! I will reblog this post every damn day if I have to, to show how stupid haters are. Especially those hating on Hans fans and Helsa shippers.
Because even if there are bad seeds in the Helsa fandom, they are rare to find.
So far I’ve seen that Helsa shippers are very harmless, especially in comparison to ElsaxAnna and ElsaxJack Frost shippers. Kristanna shippers have absolutely nothing to worry about when it comes to Hans and Helsa.
And I’m saying all of this putting aside the fact that I AM a Hans fan and a hardcore Helsa shipper. I’ve never sent hate to anyone, whatever they ship. Just because I don’t agree with their ship or I don’t like what they like, doesn’t mean I have any right or reason to throw hate here and there! It’s ridiculous, it’s sick, and it’s bullshit.
