I guess I have a lot more to think about on this topic before I can reach a final opinion, because this is a good point. Still, I hope that Natalya is flamboyant enough for them to at least guess that she's a lesbian. That way if they are buying things to get her to like them, they are being homophobic and thus it is justified to take money away from them.
I wear a rainbow bracelet on my right arm like constantly. If that doesn't clue them in...

On the other hand, leading people on so that they buy you stuff when you don't have any plans to do anything with them is really mean.
I don't lead them on. Some people even do understand I'm gay and would never date them, but my superpowers appear to work on them too.

Still, while people can be very prejudiced and have little knowledge about socialization they are also still people, and it's painful to watch them buy hundreds of dollars worth ofstuff for girls that don't like like them. Maybe I'm just biased as someone who has a certain syndrome.
Okay it isn't hundreds of dollars, its just like food or random items of (not expensive) clothing or whatever.
