How is he forcing her? Suit up to go the bathroom? Are you trying to make your argument sound ridiculous?

I think you need to re-read the thread. The suit would be solely for her protection in case the danger came to her. She wouldn't wear it all the time, nor participate in Iron Man's missions, but the suit would be there tucked away just in case something happened. Like insurance, you hope you don't ever need to use it but if you ever do, you're glad you have it. It just makes good sense.

So a supervillain comes directly after her and you want her to use her inner strength and independence to escape. That's what we are talking about here, her being in direct physical danger.
