You see the same inherent misogyny in every single thread. Literally, the only spoilers that came out about this novel when people were going in on Helena was that she was being forced to marry the Prince, a quote where she straight up says she wouldn't have married him if she had the choice and that she forced herself to love him, and a chapter where the Prince came in assuming things and slapped Eris for pushing Helena (which she did actually push Helena even if it was because she was startled not because she meant it) within the span of like one page and Helena looked worried and tried say something but gets ignored/talked over. She's annoying for speaking informally to Eris when Eris has plainly stated she disliked it, yes. But, there might even be an explanation for it like the Prince tells her/orders her to be informal (because lets be real, the socioeconomic/political differences are crazy AF and the Prince's wants are greater than Eris') or if she's informal with the prince, per his request/orders, how does it look if she treats others with formality who are lower in status? She has flaws, sure, but it's nothing that warrants all the hate and vitriol that she, as an "original MC" character get. Especially when the author seems to be trying to actually flesh her out as a legitimate person with flaws and characters.
