If you folks think you could improve this, go ahead. I wrote it ages back for shits and giggles on a half formed idea, when the foundation was very much different in tone. As such, the article doesn't quite fit as well, though it never really fit as well as I'd have liked.
Though, why does it have to be nasty side effects? It seems to be a bit blaise that everytime someone gets an ability, they're a mary sue unless something horribly grimdark happens to them. Enough of that, and they become some sort of nega-sue, which is pretty much the same thing, only with bad shit instead of good.
I'd prefer to see more instance of psychological effects of abilities on people. Writers rarely attribute to the stress and oddities strange abilities have on characters who grow up with them, or suddenly acquire them. I mean, suppose you got super strength tomorrow, huh? What would that be like for you? Sure, it'd be pretty cool for the first while, breaking stuff or pretending to be a superhero or whatever. But then what is it like for you when you accidentally break things because of it? And your interaction with people? Things we take for granted, may not be so easy. Physical intimacy automatically becomes a difficulty, and depending on the level of strength, possibly even things like hugs and handshakes. That's not taking into account how it might affect your diet, your day to day life, your relationship with other human beings. Because it's more than our appearance that makes us human, it's our behavior and how we interact with others. I just think it's an interesting subject that really isn't addressed in a lot of humanoid SCP articles.
This article was going on the idea of what a person could develop like, after coming from a society where women were basically second class citizen while being a women who had literally no reason to fear any physical reprisal, but also cannot experience most physical joys either.
