|I Re: the prank.... We're talking about hazing and college, this kind of stuff happens all the time, which no, it doesn't make it right at all. Jessica's character is powerful and strong and I'm wondering if this "prank" had been done by a male, for the same reasons, would you be a tiny bit more accepting ? Not judging, just asking. Seems to me we've heard of these kinds of back stabbing stunts throughout TV history by men and we don't blink. So maybe it's a double standard. I like that they are showing facets of her and making us realize cut throat behavior comes in all shapes, sizes and sexes!|
Methinks if it had been done by a Man to the Woman then there would have been cops called and legal proceedings to follow, him being charged with "a crime with a sexual element to it" because, iiuc, it's kinda hard (almost impossible even) to strip someone without copping/coping(?) a feel along the way.
But because it was Female on Female then there doesn't seem to be any consequences.
So if Guy on Girl is
, and equality between the sexes is what we're striving for, surely Girl on Girl should be seen as equally
Though maybe if it'd been Man on Man then it wouldn't have bothered me so much - me thinking that the guy was stupid to let himself get drunk and helpless - so I guess I have this big case of sexistpigginess
- although I'm kinda sure that a naked unconscious girl runs a higher risk of something icky happening to her than a naked unconscious guy.
As for the show (apart from this) I'm loving it, especially how, unlike other lawyer shows, we're not shown the two sides (prosecuters and defendors) having drinks afterwards which always seems weird to me - like having a knife fight with someone, stabbing them in the chest, then buying them cocoa.
