And to add to that, there's a minimal observation that Kyrie feels a bit inferior in looks to Tifa, and slightly jealous about Evan's obvious attraction towards her. These things don't exist in a vacuum
Side note, I follow a # called #menwritingwomen and once you see instances of cishet men describing attraction only by talking about boobs and nary any details about facial features or personality traits, you see it EVERYWHERE. 😂
I think Tifa has figured out that the least confrontational way of dealing with guys constantly hitting on her is to act utterly oblivious
Being small and aggreeable is actually the safest way to avoid a small % of attention that might potentially turn aggressive.
Not being a remotely beautiful woman myself, I don't know what it's like to live as one, but I would imagine it's pretty relentless.
Do well at your job, say, selling buns by working really hard? Have people make disparaging comments of how you probably hit sales targets by being beautiful, then grow an "I'll show them that I'm actually flipping smart!" attitude and work yourself half to death to prove something to no one and develop a complex while you're at it 🙄
I actually would have really liked an internal monologue from Tifa describing this, and how it translates to wanting to protect herself with hard work and martial arts, but it takes a really talented writer to describe pretty privilege emphatically.
