WHY I AM LOVING “The Bold Type”
Just started “The Bold Type” and among all the great things I could go on about (a wlw budding relationship btwn a questioning black woman and an out Muslim, strong female mentors who are as compassionate as they are fierce, and friendships that are real and loving btwn women), I want to talk about how the “main” character Jane could be that self absorbed character who always happens to turn all convos and issues back to her. And make it feel like the show is all about her, you’ve seen those shows, you know what i’m talking about. Yes there are small moments when Jane is having her own issues that she forgets to engage and be present with her friend’s (Kat saying she is questioning her sexuality) issues….BUT she literally turns back and apologizes and validates Kat and her questioning. That is friendship, that is real and loving, that is what we need to see more of.
