*annoyed*

I don’t have respect for anyone who gaslights their mate. Don’t know what that is? Is when you make them feel stupid, crazy or wrong for calling on you on shit you’re doing because you know they can’t prove it. Knowing you ain’t doing right but manipulating someone who’s in love with you, is dirt bag wrong.

Anyone who makes the victim the villain ain’t bout shit.

Am I old-fashioned…

…because it irritates me when drama shows swap mates so often between siblings and best friends?

Ever since Kelly and Dylan hooked up behind Brenda’s back, I’ve loathed the concept for TV plots. Well…I actually despised it before that, buf I digress…

As long as I’ve indulged in soaps (daytime and nighttime) I’ve craved some integrity within the writing. That “fate” wouldn’t always be written in the vein of “at any cost”. There are so many other ways to create drama and suspense without pitting women…SISTERS, against each other. Hell, in my past stories I, too have written the clichéd plot of sisters vying for the affectation of the same man. Since then I’ve grown. Due to personal experience of losing time in friendships, I get how important it is to have programming honor the bonds between friends and families.

There’s just something that chips away at me like Glenn Close mindlessly stabbing at her own thigh…I hate to see writers use such an old twist as the man who “has found his TRUE mate by marrying and divorcing his new love’s sister…”

…the perfectly romanticized story of how we sometimes meet people to find soul mates. Whatever. Call me old, but I don’t want to see women falling so easily in bed with men her sister or friend has loved deeply.

Anyway…yea.

we linger over dead relationships praying for a sudden gasp of breath, but it’s over; the fantasy of a single teardrop being the essence of renewal is just that…fantasy. let. it. go.

your leaving wasn’t tragic…my staying so long…was.

Fox spent much of its VMA coverage questioning Beyonce’s ability to promote feminism while being "extremely sexual."  
Megyn Kelly labeled Beyonce’s message and lyrics as “skanky,” while a FoxNews.com article claimed the singer “seemed to ensure her behind was the focus on each song, all the while educating young viewers about feminism.”
On The Five, Fox hosts suggested “she’s auditioning for a future husband,” and Greg Gutfeld announced that ”the greatest thing about pop culture is convincing women that acting like strippers is empowering.” 
What Fox failed to recognize is that expressing sexuality does not automatically remove a woman’s right to discuss equality. Instead, the network righteously slut-shamed Beyonce and used her performance as basis to attack feminism as a whole. In reality, such policing of women’s sexuality has harmed progress toward equality. The very same mindset has been used to dismiss women’s need to access contraception, and blame rape survivors for their own assaults. 
If anyone is going to be shamed, it should be Fox and its irresponsible coverage of women’s issues.
