gay but married mother tropes is annoying.

More likely bi. All of the bi women I know ended up married to guys eventually.

Why is it whenever people think lesbian moms they always go straight to "bi" instead of simply "not straight anymore"? (which in this case was probably the moment Harumi's mom answered the door)

Are you saying that Chiaki's dork face actually magically changed mom's sexual orientation?
I want some of whatever you are having. lol

She said "you'll get cold". I assume she meant it as her temperature lowering, which could worsen her, well, cold.

Why I'm not surprised to hear that.

Maybe because the simple rule of statistics means a bi woman is far more likely to run into a man who is interested in her than a woman? Not to mention that in many places of the world it's still far easier and often safer to marry someone of the opposite rather than same sex?

Lets not be biphobic, please.

Yeah, I don't get the Japanese obsession with wiping sweat in these scenarios tho. If someone is sick they need to sleep and sweat it out. Then they can take a warm bath and go back to resting more.
You don't get cold under the blanket even if you sweat buckets. lol

I do understand the points the two Roses (Aether and White) want to make, though.

In Japanese manga, these days, most female characters seem to be attracted both to boys and girls. This probably counts as reality in fiction, as real-life Japanese women are as likely to fan-worship a cool female idol as they are a male one. Claiming, however, that this makes you gay, and, even more, that a married housewife with children who is turned on by a cool handsome girl becomes automatically a lesbian, is, no matter how you look at it, a gross exaggeration.

And biphobia is a thing. People who identify as bi are often discriminated both by straights and gays. The most common form of this discrimination is the claim that there is not such a thing as bisexuality, and that those who call themselves bi are just confused or experimenting. If a bi woman ends up married or in a steady couple with a man, you will hear: "Yeah, she's straight as an arrow, just another BUG who was playing around." If it's with another woman, you will hear: "See, she was a lesbian all along, she just didn't want to accept herself." These attitudes are very offensive.

But then again, whether people are bi or not, like any other orientation, is down to the individual persons themselves. There can be lesbian moms and gay dads regardless of sexual history or who they might've had a crush on in the past, but those who actually consider themselves as bisexual will often state as such or correct you where appropriate. A big part of sexuality is figuring out what's right for you, after all.

Yes you need to sweat it out, but you also can't stay in bed all wet entire day. At some point you need to wipe yourself, because gathered sweat will naturally get colder. Remember that the main point of sweating is to lower your body's temperature.

Just to clarify. I never claimed it wasn't.

That's why I mentioned the hot bath (including changing clothes of course). Sweat also tends to dry up. As long as you are below the blanket you will stay warm... I mean we all were sick before so I don't need to tell you this lol

The only reason I can think of to do that is because it's icky to lie around in your own sweat I guess, but then you'll have to do it every hour or so.

Of course you can just go get a bath and change cloths. But I was talking about situation, when you don't and just keep on staying in bed. You seem to underestimated sweat. If you sweat a bucket, it will lower your temperature significantly, especially if you're getting better, so even if you're under blanket, you will still feel cold. It will be as if you got splashed with cold water and then went under blanket wet, expecting it to warm you up. And yes, I was sick before lol, a lot in fact, and I do change my cloths after spending half a day in bed to get ride of the sweat.

Woah woah, did you take the "sweating buckets" comment literally? That's not humanly possible!
I never felt cold below my blanket though. Body heat + insulation = mild temperature. Sweat only cools you down because of the surrounding temperature (liquid drops temperature faster than skin), so it will stay warm as long as you don't have openings in your blanket.
Whenever I am sick I usually get better after half a day (enough to leave bed at least) and change the covers etc. So it's not like I don't understand the need. But just wiping your sweat is pointless then, because your bedsheets are still soaked...

Of course not xD I was just using it as a phrase. I didn't even remember you used it.

So it's not like I don't understand the need.

Well I was only arguing that it isn't something pointless to do, so I'm fine with leaving our little dispute at that.

And thanks to that trope, we can have sexy sweat wiping scenes in mangos so I think that is the most important part.

My issue was how that trope came to be in the first place... Because it must have been based on real actions somehow. And I don't get how this is efficient or useful at all.

Of course the trope itself isn't a problem. Who doesn't like seeing sick people undress and almost faint in their love interest's arms? ┐(´~`)┌

This is totally a silly question, but... Nevri, how did you get those words "BugDevil posted:" to appear at the top of your quote?

When I make a quote (using the 'Quote' button) I never get that. The name of the person I'm quoting never appears at the start of the quote. Like right now, see: the quote above doesn't have "Nevri posted:" on top...

Ironically enough, using the Quote button on that post will show you how it's done (it's basically the same as posting a hyperlink)

If it was a boy there would be no way to hide the arousal. "Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just glad to fondle my boobs?"

If it's a girl, there's no easy way of telling -- so she can claim her feelings are purely platonic aesthetic appreciation. But, in reality, that's not a thing. There's always an erotic component involved when you grope and fondle another person's body, especially if you're a teenager.

No matter how strongly Chiaki denies it, the "energy boost" she feels when groping Harumi is probably sexual in nature. And sublimating that through activities such as sports is most common and really typical. It's, like, textbook psychology. Right?

I don't know if that's true in all cases. Artist can separate sexual desire from aesthetic beauty

Although, Chiaki is definitely the former. It's definitely stimulating for her, otherwise she wouldn't get a nosebleed
