This did not happen with my son. There were no phone calls. No worried concerns. No warm casseroles. My next door neighbor—a “friend” for 30 years— announced, as I was walking out to get the mail, that she wasn’t going to participate in the food train because she didn’t think we needed “all that food.” After I told her my son died of a heroin overdose, she put up a five foot privacy fence between our properties. We have not spoken since.
Stigmas surrounding addiction are such alienating forces.
Serious question: Has mainstream feminism ever lauded Shonda Rhimes as a feminist icon the way they have Lena Dunham?
Because for real, Shonda has not one, not two, but THREE successful shows under her belt, is a working mother of three children, and often writes very strong female roles.
Am I missing something?
But really. Lena Dunham has done basically nothing in my book for feminism. Meanwhile Shonda is making great shows with incredible female leads living normal lives. Not living off their parents money in New York…(okay I u derstand like everyone on Grey’s anatomy is super rich but still)
