“I really hate the word “diversity”. It suggests something…other. As if it is something…special. Or rare. Diversity! As if there is something unusual about telling stories involving women and people of color and LGBTQ characters on TV. I have a different word: NORMALIZING. I’m normalizing TV.“
-Shonda Rhimes at the HRC Gala, accepting her Ally for Equality Award
Derek practically owes everything to Meredith. He practically broke her, lied to her, got back with his wife, ask her to leave him, told her she wasn’t good enough, dated Rose because he wanted a wife, and then got drunk and threw her engagement ring at her. Derek is kind of a dick.
