@plasticwrap: I didn't take your comment as an argument. But rather just a considerably long question.

"Why should it do something to her worth as a woman?"

That was my way of answering that specific question. What I said was explaining exactly why.

Keeping with your analogy, the fruit in this case would probably equate to a certain genitalia. Now you are right that someone not liking the taste of bananas says nothing about the quality. But I would imagine the person who probably has been serving you bananas forever, thinking you enjoy their work because they love to cook for you would be right cross if you suddenly decided that you never liked the bananas they made. How whenever they weren't looking, they either threw them away or perhaps vomited up the meal of bananas when they had a spare moment.

Now if that's narcissistic and whatever, so be it. I'm not arguing what it says about the woman. Or even the man. I'm simply stating about the possible negative consequences that could result from such things.

For the other question: Like I said earlier, it's a bigger blow if he cheated vs just up and leaving. For one, it implies he didn't even come out. Not willingly. Rather he was yanked out of the closet when she found him inside. And ultimately, if he didn't just dump her, that means he would have content to use her as a beard without her knowledge or permission for who knows how long. Keeping her from maybe having pursued something with an actual straight male. Of course, this is all just speculation on my part. We have no way of knowing what the situation is.

Lastly, even with your clarification, it still sounds like a critical and non sympathetic statement. Especially the last bit. Like you only have yourself to blame.

You know... my original comment was like 4 years old...
@plasticwrap: But sure, I'll bite.

Contrary to what you're theorizing, I was not alluding to the fact that she'd think she turned him gay. But as a woman, I do think it'd do things to her worth.

Because there's no way she can compete. At least with another woman in the picture, she could imagine doing so. Like if she got desperate enough to chase him, she could try and demand comparisons. Because both being women, they could basically do the same things to him.

"Oh, so she let you do this to her boobs, huh? I can do that too and better."

But the fact that he prefers a man... she can't compete with that. Because unlike with a woman, you can't argue with the simple fact that he simply has to give him something that she never could. By virtue of him being a guy. So while she knows at least that it's not her fault, in a bittersweet way, she also knows that there was nothing she could have done to keep him.

And hell, maybe it's more of a blow because she just wasted all this time on him. Time she can never get back. If he cheated on her.

That's not to say I disagree with you. Often, it's not about the ex at all when a person moves on. But humans are emotional and often illogical creatures. And we're talking about a relationship ending after a significant amount of time that we're pretty sure wasn't mutual.

And I think it's rather unfair and a little high and mighty to declare a person should just be mad at themselves if they get dumped for a new person. It's just all kinds of blameshifty.
Now I wanna know what's a more extreme reaction than Anna's. So very, very curious
Final Chapter?
Holy cow. We're almost done?

Can hardly believe it.
I don't suppose we could get more detail.

Feels like in this iteration, the personal lives are more confusing.

Ha! Because sand always manages to get into people's swimsuits...

Nice
Welp, consequences.

It's probably about time Sarah faced some over there. I always felt she as kinda dismissive of authority figures.

She still looks so dazed. I can't stop grinning and chuckling.
So... as a reminder, this is Hyo we're talking about, right?

I didn't know he was a neighbor. Maybe I wasn't paying attention.
It is rather interesting...
Just the impact an initial reaction would bring.

If it had been me, mine probably would have been the words "Oh God, what are you going to do?"

Things might be different for Emily if she'd gotten that reaction instead.
Holy Crap. I'm caught up.

I can't believe I'm caught up!

Now I'm curious just what he was doing. Like how was he trying to murder her?

Suffocation from the inside out? Shriveling? What?

UGH. Why is it always humans??
Always the ones being dicks and being prejudiced to everything. *sighs*
Called. It.
Foreshadowing, indeed...
It's a drain issue and her hair is loose and all over the place.

I just know she's going to get her hair stuck in the drain. Probably traumatized her mentally for the future making it impossible for her to swim anymore.

Would be a good call back to her almost drowning in that pool at her first villain con. Seeing as here she just dives in with confidence.
Is Troy's grandmother from his mother's side or father's?

Just trying to get a feel. I'd understand if it's his maternal grandmother. But if his paternal grandma... well, that would be hard to understand.
Yeah... this? This is not how to be chivalrous.
I consider myself a prude.

But even so, I totally appreciate Moogi for that. People need to counter protest the outrageous stuff more often.
