Loki-Meta: Comparative Societies

Often we hear in Loki fanon about what a terrible father Odin was. That he was hard on his boys. That he expected too much. That he was particularly hard on Loki.

People who state this seem to be coming from a position of trying to fit Odin (and all of Asgard) into the role of contemporary fatherhood. However, Asgard is a race of warriors. The thematic elements established, especially in the movies, seem more akin to Shakespeare or Game of Thrones than Modern Family or Parenthood.
