I was wondering how bad the cliffhanger could possibly be, and yes, I also read a few pages ahead
Oh yes! I was concerned when the 兄貴 word was used, and then I felt relief when it got addressed later.
Also fun fact - I saw 姉貴 for a first time about a month ago, didn’t even know this word exist beforehand, and now I see it again in what seems such a short period… Will it be one of these times when after you notice something once, you start seeing it everywhere?
She reminds me of… so many people I met. This “if I don’t like it then it is bad” attitude always baffled me, how hard is it to imagine that there don’t have to be one “gold standard” way of living?
My “favorite” is a belief that homosexual people want to turn everyone into homosexuals because… well because there is impossible for two options to exist at the same time! And then everyone will be forced to change gender! They are giving kids pills for it at school, in the morning you say goodbye to your sweet daughter, in the afternoon you have a son!
(this last one was said by our politician… it was hard to find an English source, but I managed although it makes you disable ad-block. he didn’t really say it happens instantly but it was ridiculous enough:
“Like for instance in Poznań, they catch a child somewhere unstable, neglected, and give them medicine to change their gender without knowledge and consent of the parents and doctors. We prevent this!”)
Sorry for ranting
