especially when you're wearing porn-coloured spectacles
Is that in the RGB gamut?
I think it only has a valid mapping in YUV colourspace.

Back in the U.K. you can see this behaviour, often fuelled by alcohol, but often sans-alcholol. I've already given my reasons so I won't repeat myself too much. Communication is the key.
The problem comes when the other person doesn't communicate the way you're used to. You can't force someone to communicate, at least not without some judiciously-placed electrodes and a large pair of pliers.
I've had enough relationships where we could talk easily about absolutely anything without it turning into a screaming match, so I know how it's supposed
to go. If your S.O. has, perhaps, watched her dad being hectored and howled at during her formative years, she might well think that's the way it's supposed to be done. Sure, it happens everywhere, to some extent. But I still maintain there is something in the local culture or predominant parenting style that results in far too many women being unable to have a productive conversation about something contentious. I have observed
a lot of parents engaging in abusive or counterproductive behaviour: for example, I remember an otherwise great guy "helping" his young daughter with her english homework, which basically involved slapping her every time she said something wrong. Again, not saying it doesn't happen elsewhere, but I've seen it way too often here.
1) If she was ugly, would I still be happy to do this for her? or
2) If she used teeth (badly), would I still be happy to do this for her?
I don't think that would work, because often the answer is 'yes'. If you care about someone, it doesn't matter if she's ugly or not. There is also what economists and psychologists call "escalation of commitment", which is basically an irrational decision to keep doing something because you've already invested so much effort in it. PXJ behaviour does usually emerge only after several months, when you're heavily invested in the relationship and (presumably) want to make it work.
If the answer's no to either, you're probably thinking with little head
And not so much of the 'little', thank you very much.
