Emotional labour was originally a word for people who have to put a lot of uncompensated emotional effort into their job. Recently, however, it's more along the lines of "idk, it kinda sucks when I have to listen to my boyfriend" or "now that I've made my statement, I don't want to defend myself or back it up because it's emotionally laborious"
If you're willing to PayPal me $5 for the emotional labour, I'll explain my vague/ridiculous statement"
