We Won't Stand For Violence Against Women on ABC's Scandal

Sign this! It is so so so very important. The representation of women and violence against women is such an important topic that ABC’s Scandal BOTCHED. I’m offended. If you’re on twitter, use the hashtag #GladiatorsAgainstViolence to get some more attention!!

Me, when salty-ass, bitter AF folks reach all extra far into oblivion and try to deride a fictional couple for always saving each other just cuz they don’t ship it:

You mad he saved her life twice within a few episodes and she kissed him goodbye in return?

Does it irk you that she gave the other 2 men in her life furious hell until she got him back?

Does the fact that just the thought of her face saved him from giving up on life annoy you?

Did him asking her to save him from their darkness and her agreeing make you roll your eyes?

You irritated that she went so far as to have a dude shanked to save him from wrongful imprisonment and potential death?

Did it hurt your feelings when she dreamed of being swept into his arms and carried to safety?

Did her doing any and everything to save his life after a near-fatal attack and then nursing him back to health make you suck your teeth real hard?

Did you groan real loud when he was threatened so she signed away her father’s potential imprisonment?

When she bursts into tears and collapses in her friends’ arms because he’s in danger and she feels helpless to save him does that leave you perturbed? 

Does it bother you how utterly and completely ride-or-die they are for each other?

Well, all I got to say to that is

Ayo, Scandal fandom, what the fuck?

Like, even when we talk about the show, ONLY THE SHOW, there is still this poisonous division. How unhappy must these people be to drag anyone into the discussions not currently being held JUST SO THEY CAN FEEL RIGHT? Are these adults or children with exponential idle time and poor debate skills? The antics and BS so needlessly attached to this fandom are so not worth it.

People are kissing ass and trying to earn brownie points for what? We wanted Scandal to succeed. We watched, we made that happen. Then the show turned into some trashy soap where the heroine no longer had backbone. Racists state that this show champions white men, when Shonda is the show-runner. (Or rather racists say we like Tony Goldwyn more than Kerry Washington, which isn’t true amongst all of us.) Yet their argument in this is what? Because there has been dirt thrown on Kerry’s name by those same people.

Then people harass celebrity accounts on some “look at what they’re saying and take our side because they’re wrong” nonsense. Dawg, really? Who the fuck even does that after they pass age 12? Now maybe it’s because telling had never been beneficial to me in my youth so it doesn’t occur now at 26. Or maybe some ships take on water and those aboard can’t fucking swim. Boohoo, but launching attacks because you’re not making a compelling argument shows you aren’t built like that. So stand down.

My thoughts on anything Kerry and Tony, while not as public as other fandom members, have never been negative. I champion Kerry daily, find Tony awesome and think both are far too gracious at times. (Way too gracious.) Neither party asked for any of this bullshit that people insist on lobbing their way. Yet they don’t stoop to the level of hate filled, bottom dwelling, assholes who anonymously take jabs on the grounds of ignorance and pure malice. Sadly, that same disgusting behavior is becoming the norm.

Again, everybody isn’t taught grace. Some people are more akin to savage animals. Before I let those people run me out, I’ll stand on what the hateful consider “the wrong side of an argument”. But I’m not pitching a bitch when my side doesn’t have enough people standing with me. If it really weighs this heavily on you what people who aren’t fucking you, feeding you or family to you do, log the fuck out. Because you’re doing this shit wrong as hell. This message is from the Goddess of Light. I’m out.
