Since I just reblogged something about Friends, talking about the Ross/Carol/Susan situation, it got me thinking. Everyone was always like “Wow Ross, it’s so big of you to be okay with your ex being a lesbian”, as if that was supposed to be something he shouldn’t be (and really, he wasn’t very supportive half the time). They also praise him for being a “good dad” as if he wouldn’t. (He also wasn’t, not really.)
Let’s talk about Susan. She fell in love with Carol and then finds out that she’s pregnant by her ex. Instead of running, she says “No, I want to raise this baby with you.” She goes to the appointments, is in the room when Carol has Ben. Then, we can see that she’s more of a parent to him than Ross ever is.
Susan is the one who deserves the praise. She’s awesome.
