Well, let's look at it a little deeper.
The way the word is used seems to imply a complete loss of self respect in pursuit of a relationship that is potentially unfulfilling, or in which the partner you are pursuing does not hold you in the same esteem you hold them, hence the lack of self respect - you are giving your all to someone at great expense who thinks of giving little or nothing to you. Pearl almost kinda-sorta fits this bill early on. She's built to be loyal to Pink/ Rose, and despite the fact that she shows her devotion at every turn, it's highly apparent that Pink doesn't really see this as a two-way thing. When we flash back to their first interactions on the moon base and we see Pearl eager to please her, their entire dynamic is shown outright.>Can you imagine running a colony would be this boring?>I can imagine it, if you would like me to, my Diamond!>[Pink looks unamused and slightly annoyed by her proposition]
Now while of course ,we see much warmer interactions between them as we move along their story together, it's somewhat uncertain as to how much more respect she has for Pearl, Pink's diamond heritage may be at fault for what s essentially a superiority complex she may or may not be aware that she has. She doesn't even treat Greg like a real person until he confronts her and though this may be because he's a human, we also have to remember how much lower a Pearl is than a diamond as well. Even a lowly Peridot was scoffing at he idea of Pearl being in charge.>>114578505
