Going to Chromeo tonight! I’ll be liveblogging the show more than likely, stay tuned! :)
I think it’s all rooted in sexism (not to be a crazy social justice blogger or anything).
People are still in the “men provide” mindset, so seeing an older man dating a younger woman is see as protective and safe, while women who try to fill this role are labeled “cougars”.
Of course it can work!
Gengar is my favorite in general, closely followed by Lilligant/Gardevoir. In the TCG, it’s Keldeo, hands down.
