This is Shonda Rhimes' world and we are just living in it, and we are LUCKY to be living in it, as far as I'm concerned. (As if you don't channel Olivia Pope on days you have too much work to do for the amount of time you have to do it.)
The Scandal/Grey's Anatomy creator brought it via Twitter when somebody got a little cranky about the "gay scenes" in Grey's because . . . the person sucks? (Yes.) Here's what happened.
"The gay scenes in Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder are too much," said a tweeter we're not going to link to, and whose grammer we corrected. "There is no point and they add nothing to the plot."
YOU add nothing to the plot! Is probably what I would've said. Fortunately, Rhimes' is much better with her temper than I am.
"They are no GAY scenes," she shot back. "There are scenes with people in them."
"If u use the phrase 'gay scenes,' u r not only LATE to the party but also NOT INVITED to the party," she continued. "Bye Felicia. #oneLOVE"
See, THIS is how you maintain an online presence. And she's right: sex scenes are sex scenes. Who cares who's doing what with whom? I mean, I care, because if so-and-so just kissed whats-their-name when they're supposed to be dating that other person, that matters because PLOT TWIST. But in regards to sexuality? Bore me to tears, people-like-the-above tweeter. How embarrassing to tweet to the series creator one's blatent homophobia. How boss for Shonda Rhimes to dismiss it so effectively.
Like I said, QUEEN.
