The difference is that the narrative acknowledged that. Harry has that big moment where he realises that James wasn't the shining perfect man in school. Lupin explains to him then that he became the hero everyone likens Harry to, but he acknowledges they were shit.

Meanwhile Snape's unrequited love and psychopathic behavior were just ~tragedy.

I'm not a fan of James by any stretch n but boy is the way the narrative treats him less obnoxious.

I never stated anything about the narrative, I stated the fandom likes to suck James' dick. And I mean yeah, Snape IS a tragedy but I guess I never read any of his stuff as excusing it narrative-wise. Explain, sure, because, as I said above, groups like the proto-Death Eaters he ended up with in school prey on bullied kids who aren't accepted and seek validation. It's how you get gangs recruiting people.
