Nothing, unless you count caffeine (and I moderate that carefully).

I haven't seen the latest Star Wars for the very reasons this article states: because I don't care anymore and neither does Disney, who are just trying to wring every last dollar out of this franchise.

To clarify: role strain is about having to perform two contradictory role demands at the same time, irregardless of what those roles and requirements may be. Role strain seems to be more prevalent with women than men.

I'd guess either role strain (i.e. women often have jobs that require them to be attractive and appear single and sexually available yet must quietly suffer crude comments and overtures) or emotional labour, where the woman is expected to manage her own emotions without help, but must allow the spouse and/or others to vent and even misbehave.

Just skimmed the article, but it made me laugh out loud. Good stuff.
