Now this one has me with my mouth open. Does Shonda actually not get it! Address what you did on Scandal Shonda!

😐

She’s such a joke

She’s fucking ridiculous.

Seriously?!
This —— goes out of her way to perpetrate violence against most of the women on the show, didn’t give trigger warnings for that nonsensical retconned rape, makes an Afterschool Special for each white female character’s pain with X amount of outrage all the while normalizing violence against the lone POC (who happens to be the lead) as if the character  deserves it, and now this THIS?!?!
SR can fuck off.

Shonda can have several seats!!!

Looking at her like


She makes me sick. I’m so disgusted. The things people will do for publicity. Karma is a bitch Shonda. But it looks like you are reaping it with that NY Times article. The things that happen when your ego gets out of control.

Nicole Beharie is a lead not a sidekick.
Asinine article written by ‘child’ journalist Alessandra Stanley of the New York Times

wth?

Yep, this journalist sucks. All those wanting to give her praises because she pissed off Shonda Rhimes: 


Journalist does suck but I’m not outraged on Shonda’s behalf. Shonda is problematic herself.  Two separate issues.  What sucks is because this journalist is so wrong it will allow Shonda to once again skate by.

But why is Shonda tweeting her crazy over this insignificant article? She remained silent when critic after critic said last season was a bust. She pushed this story because she is attempting to change the subject and she wants to get viewers for next week. My solidarity with others is dependent on mutual respect and there has not been a SR character more disrespected than Olivia Pope.

This ^^^^^

All the chickens are coming home to roost today. This is the world we live in, and yet the same SR wants to take creative license and let her lead be called a whore and choked just for kicks. Foolery all round.

"There are atheists in foxholes. There are atheist in schools and public office. There are atheists everywhere. The more we can normalize the fact that this country is full of people of varying beliefs and non-beliefs, the stronger we are. And if you’re swearing to defend the Constitution, you’re swearing to defend a system that protects all of us, whether you pray or not."

The new IOS8 update contains an app named Health which CANNOT BE DELETED.

The app allows you to choose which aspects of your health you choose to monitor, but available categories include “Body Measurements”, which includes body weight, and “Fitness”,…

I found it naggy, annoying, and plan to ignore it. (If I want a weight loss app, I can get one—or delete my Dunkin Donuts one!) It did not occur to me what this could do to someone who is recovering from an eating disorder. So, passing it on.

Good interview with Tony, but that interviewer doesn’t know her shit or is so far up Jake’s ass she doesn’t remember her shit:

There’s also the scene where Olivia tells Fitz she’s choosing Jake, and it comes on the heels of her finding out that Fitz murdered her mentor with his bare hands. 
But is choosing Jake a cop-out move? Her connection to Jake is kind of an escape hatch. I don’t think Olivia loves Jake. She does, in a way. And Jake ain’t no boy scout either — let’s be clear. [Laughs.] 

When the hell did that happen? 

Also, I think even Tony sees the writing on the wall now about Olitz:

Do you think their relationship is sustainable? 
This is one of those relationships that seems like an addiction to chaos. But I can’t play this character and think that, because every time Fitz and Olivia are in each other’s orbit there’s this unavoidable magnetic pull between them, and that’s just the way it is. I put a lot of stock in their attraction being way beyond a sexual attraction, and it’s a pretty rare thing.

—————

There’s no scene where Olivia tells Fitz that she’s choosing Jake, unless the interviewer means the “I can’t leave my gladiators” conversation and I don’t see how that equates to “I choose Jake”.

I also love the phrase “Fitz murdered Olivia’s mentor with his bare hands”, like Verna was innocently minding her own business and Fitz came along looking to get his barbaric rocks off.  A better description is “Olivia’s mentor who nearly assassinated Fitz because she simply felt like it, then double crossed Olivia (and others including his poor raped wife) also because she felt like it, and would have landed them in prison if Fitz hadn’t taken her out.”

Reblogging because the bolded is accurate and I am so sick of them portraying evil, murdering, scum Verna as an innocent little lamb.  She deserved to die at someone’s hand rather than doing her dirty little deed and dying peacefully.

I also feel like I don’t understand why I’ve never been to Scotland and the Highland Games in particular.

To the people who know: Is Scotland known to be friendly or unfriendly to culturally different people, POC in particular?

I have never been to Scotland, but when a Black female friend of mine went there, pre 2000, she was stared at constantly and people asked if they could touch her hair.  She didn’t see a single other POC while she was there.  She was there for a week.  She said the people were friendly though.

A couple of years ago I spent almost an hour talking to a lovely Scottish woman at a friend’s Christmas party.  The next year when I went she sought me out and we talked more.  I told her about my friend’s experience and she said that she must have encountered people who had never been anywhere else, which isn’t how Americans see Europeans.  At least, I have always seen Europeans as world travelers who live and work everywhere.  Apparently that is a generalization.

Have twice as much intellect.
