Immediately disgusted by Akechis presence.
Look where Akechi and the Protagonistís hands are.

I hate that I saw it seconds before you pointed out.
Stop stealing my thunder, Karkat!

Damn thatís funny.
I can't believe Makoto is an outome protagonist
Haru looks like she's pregnant in that pic
Ren/Akira x Goro x Makoto OT3?
Nah from me.
I have always preferred MC-kun x Ann myself.
Akechi X knife to the forehead is the only real ship.
Alechi x Dead and Makoto x Alone work for me.
I was talking about the picture.
Though I personally like Polytheives (Ren/Akira x Ann x Ruyji x Yusuke x Makoto x Futaba x Haru) and Akechi should die alone.

As far as the Phantom Thieves go, I am for Makotox Joker, Annx Ryuji, Harux Yusuke.
Akechi gets to hook up with Futaba just to make sure all ends are tied.
As far as gay pairings, however, my picks are Annx Makoto and Jokerx Yusuke.
Ryuji hooks up with the boring dude.
You want to hook up Futaba with the dude who MURDERED her mom?
I think in this case. Forever Alone is preferable.
Great for drama! That'll make a fantastic second act twist!!
Didn't stop me from hooking up Sonia and Souma, besides.

As an asexual person, I find both the idea of Pairing up the Spares and the term Forever Alone to be fascinating examples of things that should probably offend me. Like, wow are these norms so ingrained in us that language like that gets thrown about casually.
Blame society for idealizing romance so damn much.
But there's something of a basis; humans are social creatures by nature. It's literally coded in us to bond and spend time with a lot of people otherwise we couldn't reasonably function long term.
Even me, whom I consider and introvert, have some desire for a long term companion to socialize with.

Can't you socialize with friends and family?
A romantic partner is someone who, in theory, will stick with you through thick and thin, and vice verse, because the two of you share a life.
Friends and family are not permanent, you can drift apart from even your parents with time.
I never want everyone to end the story with a love interest. Sticking just to Persona; I stick with only one set of people getting into a relationship with each other per team.
Just like how we never see Ren/Akiria's parents or any friends from his old town.
And I don't really ship off everyone in everything. Plenty of people are better off alone anyway. Both in fiction and in real life.

People drift apart from romantic partners all the time. I don't have statistics on hand, but it wouldn't surprise me if it's more common than drifting apart from close friends or family.
Or possibly people are losing their friends because they devote too much energy into their romantic partners. Either way, chasing a dream that rarely comes true doesn't seem like a very realistic method compared to just making better friends.
That said, I certainly don't want to tell people how to lead their lives, I'm just a little shocked that this sort of language is considered so neutral given how utterly dehumanizing it is to people like me. Sort of like... my emotions are broken? I'm not human? That's basically how you're talking.
Unless someone confronted you about it directly, I don't see how you could be offended.
We are born alone & we will die alone.

Everyone is coming with me when I die.
It's only fair right?
That being said, Forever Alone might have been a bad term to use. I'll just say that Futaba should not be paired with Akechi. As most people stated, Akechi probably shouldn't be paired with anything shy a bullet to some vital part of the body...which the game agrees with actually.
What, you don't see how "humans are born to pair off with the opposite sex" is offensive to gay people? It's the same thing.
By talking about how romantic pairings are inevitable and natural, and how not having one is "forever alone" in a vaguely negative sense, it's acting as if people like me, who have never had even the remotest desire for such a thing, are not human. Abnormal. And that's offensive.
It's just strange to me how no one seems to notice or care that it is.
