It’s been a wild little week for a certain internet wife-guy, and like Marie Kondo, gay Twitter was ready to dive right into the mess.

Fulmer’s post personal post Addressed the rumours, confirmed her extramarital affair with a co-worker.
A line from his post struck a chord with many readers, as he says he “lost focus” and apparently described their affair as a “consensual workplace relationship.” This was likely in response to the online rumblings that the boss/employee relationship came with an underlying, problematic power imbalance.

Unable to take anything too seriously, people on social media immediately began to associate this message with their favorite “consensual workplace relationships.”
To be fair, here are some caveats:
