I like to think that Akito tries to be a better person after the end of Fruits Basket but tends to slip into old habits when around the zodiac members and then when Tohru shows up they get all frantic like “OH NO MOM’S HERE I HAVE TO BEHAVE. UNDO UNDO. NOBODY TELL”
Making the partner feel like they’re not good enough
Trying to control the partner’s life
Things that DON’T make a ship abusive:
Both parties being the legal age of consent but one being significantly older than the other (can still be problematic, but it’s not abusive.)
Someone saying something they shouldn’t have one time on accident and sincerely apologizing for it afterwards (may be a legitimate cause to end the relationship, but does not qualify as abuse.)
You not liking it.
The relationship in question being anything less than perfect.
Can we please as a website end this trend where we call ships we don’t like abusive when they actually aren’t? It’s insulting to people who have actually been in or currently are in abusive relationships.
