We've both acknowledged that we've never been introduced to this character so we don't how she would feel. I said it was disrespectful and I was speaking from my personal opinion. I never said she felt it was disrespectful. It's possible it could hurt her feelings considering that's her child calling another woman "Mom." but that's just speculation.
Why are you stating things like I actually said them? I never said that. Was that sarcasm?
Neither is your statement the case. I don't know if you've read what I said to @gia but if Aeson had gone with not knowing his mother like the MC and wasn't raised by her, I wouldn't view it as disrespectful. Persephone in that situation would be his only mother figure. She would be the one who took care of him and raised him, so that would be his mother regardless of whether they shared blood or not.
She hasn't though. She didn't breast feed him, change his diapers, teach him how to walk, nor did she raise him from infant to child.
It doesn't and that's not my point. That's just not something I would personally do. I have a mother, she raised me, and took care of me so that's my mother. Persephone didn't do all that his mother has done.
With the amount of people inserting themselves in the MC's life and judging them for shit they don't know about, they need that reminder too. At least the MC would actually ask the question instead of assuming something negative about Aeson as a person. It's not like the MC would be involving themselves in family drama or something. It's not that deep, it's a question. I don't think he's a bad person for it or that he shouldn't be able to call her that if he wants to, I just think it's disrespectful because he has a mother he knows that raised him and I'm thinking of what she might feel. That's not something that I would do, so I would want to understand his reasoning better, hence the MC asking him why.
