I understand being disappointed that your favorite character isn’t an LI, but some people in this fandom take it too far. When one starts saying that they’re “devastated” or that they sobbed for hours over the news, I think it’s time for that person to step back for a bit. That sort of reaction is not normal. It is unhealthy, and the fandom in general needs to stop encouraging/enabling that sort of behavior.
Omg y e s, I think you put it very well into words! I’m so afraid to watch the final episode now (I already was but even more) but the Dutch dudes whose LP I follow haven’t played it yet and aaaah
well good luck have fun and bring tissues and ice cream when you finally do watch it! Although maybe not as absolutely heart wrenching as watching Lee die, season 2 finale was fucking intense. shit went down so fast haha |:
It is not about who pays for the date. It is not about who moves the couch. It is not about who kills the bugs. It is not about who cooks the dinner. It’s not even about who stays home with the kids, as long as the decision was made together, after thinking carefully about your situation and coming to an agreement that makes sense for your particular marriage and family.
It is about making sure that nobody ever has to do anything by “default” because of their gender. The stronger person should move the couch. The person who enjoys cooking more, has more time for it, and/or is better at it should do the cooking. Sometimes the stronger person is male, sometimes not. Sometimes the person who is best suited for cooking is female, sometimes not. You should do what works.
But it is also about letting people know that it is okay to change. If you’re a woman who wants to become stronger, that’s great. If you’re a man who wants to learn how to cook, that’s also great. You might start out with a relationship where the guy opens all the jars and the girl cooks all the meals, but you might find that you want to try something else. So try it."
