@mylatestobssession brought up an interesting thought that would this sl be meaningful if the “twist” is not a pregnancy, but a story about dubious consent and that it in fact can happen to males as well?
Because while they have been trying to “redeem” Rebecca’s character over the past few weeks, let’s not forget, this is not the first time that we have discussed consent in relation to her.
When she arrived in emmerdale, she consistently put herself in Robert’s personal space, made sexual advances to him, and tried to kiss him even after he repeatedly turned her down. And after she was turned down, she repeatedly mocked his sexuality. She would act like the scorned party, as if she was the one that was in a relationship with him. Then do it all over again. It seemed to me that she acted as if she was entitled to him because of their past. This is not even taking into account what happened last week which was even more uncomfortable then what I just mentioned.
That being said, do y'all see this happening? And if it did, would it make this sl justifiable?

Albert Einstein (whose birthday we celebrate today) once said:

“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”

Something had changed Kara. Cat could see it on the way she proposed new stories or presented ideas that revolved around the same topic: LGBTQ rights. So she proposed articles, interviews, columns on every magazine, inclusive covers… anything her little alien hands could get a hold of, she went after it like a precious potsticker. And Cat appreciated the passion… and was very curious behind the reasons for that change.

and I thought about how her gift was the way she interested herself in what the people around her were interested in. It wasn’t that she was engaged with what other people did for politeness’ sake. I think she did it because she wanted to find out why we did what we did, since what we did was somehow who we were, and that was her way of getting to know people, by searching to share the fascination that people she met had for the most disparate things. I’ve often thought it must be exhausting. But perhaps it wasn’t. Maybe it was blindingly simple.

Want to learn astrology? Read fucking everything. Google everything, find old astrology books, read favorite astrology blogs.
Ask questions, find answers. Learn concepts. Be erratic, be passionate, be curious.
Apply what you’ve read to people. Read your friends’ charts, people watch, watch sit coms and pick out planets and signs for people.
Never stop. No one will ever fully understand it- astrology is beyond us because it is us. And to think we can fully understand ourselves, let alone a system of individuals reflected, is absurd. There’s probably an algorithm but I don’t think linearly.
