"Yeah well I had a friend who tried doing an open relationship and it was a total disaster so I don’t think it can work"
Ok you could ask me about how monogamy was a total disaster for me and my friends and partners, but I guess that’s less fun than telling me my choices don’t “work.”

Imagine you’re playing a game, right. Your favorite video game. But suddenly you have a random status condition. Maybe your poisoned, or your stats have just suddenly dropped. Nothing obvious caused it. No monster attacks or anything, just completely out of the blue. They are temporary, but it keeps happening periodically, and it’s a different status condition every time. Sometimes it happens when you’re just crafting or talking to a merchant or whatever, but sometimes it happens when you are in the middle of a dungeon. You can take potions for the really obnoxious ones, like poison or something, but those potions cause other negative status effects. They might cure the poison, but now your stamina is cut in half for the duration of the potion.
I know some people would look at this and think it’s cool, because it makes the game more challenging, but it’s not a setting you can enable/disable at will. It just happens, and it doesn’t stop. Suddenly your favorite game just became so much harder to play.
Now imagine that you turn off the game and go back to your life and it’s still like that.
For those of us with chronic illnesses, we don’t have to imagine.
My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.
And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie."
