Creating 2015—Day 82:   Kinky Sue

I just had a chance to catch up on last Thursday’s episode of Scandal.  I absolutely loved Lena Dunham in it!  Her character, Kinky Sue, had written a tell-all book about her, well, kinky sexipades with a dozen of DC’s political powerhouses.  One of those aforementioned lovers nicknamed Dustbuster—I had no idea what it meant—also happened to be Abby’s current lover.  Abby blew a gasket and called in Olivia Pope to fix it.  Olivia shamed Lena’s character Kinky Sue and bullied her into realizing she was going to be called a whore as well as ruin these men’s lives.  Problem fixed.  But wait!  Kinky Sue shows up at Olivia’s office the next day and demands three million dollars for her book and fires back calling Olivia a prude.  She says, “You’re telling me to be afraid of what names someone is going to call me because I had the audacity to have too much great sex … What happened to you? When did you become so afraid of life? I am not ashamed. This is my life, my body, my story to tell, sell. Go ahead and call me a whore. Everyone who writes a memoir is a whore.”  You go, girl!  I loved the episode until—and spoiler alert—they killed Kinky Sue in the end!  Huck slit her throat.  So, the “whore” still got punished?!?  Sure, she gave Olivia and Abby the permission to fully step into their God-given sex drive and get their freak on but come on! WTF?  Not fair, I cry.  Not fair!

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…injustice.
