I took an Ethics class sometime ago, and I recall us covering Utilitarianism. It's been a while but I do understand what you are saying. I don't agree with it, but I get where you are coming from. I know I said somewhere above that I'd probably do the same thing in her position. I still stand by that, but the motivation would purely be anger and revenge. I'm not saying it's the right decision or even a good one. Being driven into a miserable corner like that does things to your mind. Hyun-ae makes me sad. Also, isn't it interesting how much motivation behind actions can matter? I find it oddly more palatable that Hyun-ae would do something horrible for selfish reasons. If she were thinking about future women...that just seems scary. But maybe that's because I'm a selfish person? I can relate more with a selfish motive.
