* In ''Fanfic/NukumeDori'', this is one of the more interesting parts of [[Manga/TokyoBaylon Subaru and Seishirou]]'s budding relationship dynamic. Seishirou is regularly shown as being the one who chooses many of their activities, including where they go on their “dates” down to deciding what Subaru eats and drinks by ordering for him when they go out. Interestingly enough the only time this chafes on Subaru is when he and Seishirou are fighting over whether or not he should [[spoiler:save Matsumoto’s life.]] Subaru seems to draw a firm distinction in his mind between Seishirou taking care of him as part of their relationship, and the Sakurazukamori using this as a tool to be condescending and belittle his choices.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bqMY82xzWo This superb video]], a lecture given by Professor Renata Salecl (marvelously illustrated/animated by an unnamed artist) describing how daunting freedom can be for people who were raised in a state that used to make most of their decisions for them or provided them very few choices (she grew up in Yugoslavia).
