Re: A lot of bigotry here, I notice (RANT TIME)
"But what if they're NOT doing you a good turn out of the kindness of their heart? How can you tell, whether it's genuine kindness or manipulation?"
"Have you never been in a relationship where your partner is being extra kind to you, only to find out that there's something they want you to do for them that you might not even want to do?"
"That's called emotional blackmail."
Or, in a relationship with someone who is not your partner?
Either way, it's emotional blackmail.
