    "Is it a breach of consent to trick someone into thinking you're cheating with them, when actually you're in an open relationship?"

    ("I don't know. ... I'm going to ask Kintsugi.")

    Nothings walkable here it’s a bit in the middle of nowhere. I’ve only lived with my cousin for a few months and I’m already looking to move again. I miss living close to a downtown area.

    Verily a very ineffective hitman

    Consent is obviously extremely important, but it’s probably not the most useful way to frame everything that’s important to a healthy relationship. Honesty and trust are pretty damn fundamental. Consideration for your partner(s)’s feelings is also vital, as is respect for them as a person with a responsibility to their own needs and desires, as well as their growth and fulfillment of their potential as they understand it. Mutual investment in a mutually desirable future with your partner(s) in which you share your lives meaningfully is gonna become quite important for anything that’s any kind of lasting relationship.

    If you’re lying to someone about the basic circumstances of the relationship? You are completely failing at all of those things.

    You could probably frame it as a lack of consent by arguing that because the person was not informed, they literally cannot decide whether to consent. But I think that with a situation like this in which someone is really obviously doing something hurtful, if you find yourself arguing over the exact meaning of a word and whether it’s applicable, the conversation has probably drifted away from the point. Semantics are not always something to argue about when you can’t figure out what you’re actually in disagreement with or what you’re really trying to say, but they are a pretty compelling distraction when that does happen. It’s worth considering, ime.

    It may not matter if you can agree on whether this is a useful situation to understand in terms of consent. The underlying ideas that you mean to reference when you invoke whatever word you would prefer to use in this discussion are far more important. You don’t have to agree on the usage and relative importance of individual vocabulary words to explain and understand what each person intends to reference, regardless of whether you’re using the exact same words in the exact same way or think it’s the best term for the discussion.

    I'd say "I can't believe Buster is a high-level barbarian," but I can completely believe Buster is a high-level barbarian.

    I haven’t watched the video yet but I read this and thought of Buster from Arthur, and honestly I feel like he’d be more of a bard. :P

    but where does one contemplative gaze end and the next begin? asking for a friend. the friend is a toad. who may or may not be a ranger of near infinite level.

    (hermes is a cleric. he has achieved epic level based on social grooming. my knuckles are SO CLEAN.)
