@GreenKrog:

You didn't mention perhaps the most-well known case: The original Star Wars trilogy.

Der, Das, and Des
I will write that fanfic!

But the reapercakes, being gender-neutral, shall have to find an alternate way to express their affection. "Like water For Chocolate" style? *giggle*

@glitchedout: It is hard to deal with abuse because it gets us in the mindset of 'we are abused' instead of 'we are with someone abusive'. Instead of putting the blame on another, we internalize it as something about us, not about them. And that can be hard to go out and say 'this person is a problem' instead of 'I have a problem'.

If nobody had told Sophie, and Sophie hadn't told the Bernts, who knows what would have happened.
If someone knew about my mother's abuse, I doubt it would have had the same impact. Emotional and neglectful abuse is a lot harder to 'prove' than bruises. You could say I took the easy way out when it came to this problem for our characters - Andrea immediately got removed from her father, and Annie never has to go home to her emotionally crippling mother. I don't know what I could even do about a character who doesn't have that option, because I simply don't have that answer.

@Drakanor Dream: I wrote that almost a year ago, and if I put down what it means, I can't find it anywhere. If you can figure it out, let me know.

I don't know why but it hit me so strongly to see Andrea shaking but there on trial. Its something I never did with my own father and his abuse though its something I wish I had. It could have changed a lot but no one has stepped forward to cut him out of the picture. I am proud of her being able to do something like this and honestly it got me a little teary just thinking about things.

Gender, culture, and humanity
Your comment reminded me of an article I read, which cited a scene in a play where apparently someone was trying to butter his bread 'like a man.' I did not see this play, I can't remember its title - but it was in the late 90s. It must be tough to figure out how to butter bread in a way that communicates femininity attempting masculinity, much less in a way an audience can see. I /do/ recall that the article was using the term 'pomosexual,' for post-modern sexual (in the vein of metrosexual?), and I believe they meant non-binary gender identities.

Wish I could remember the name of that play...
