It ain’t easy being sleazy… The Bill Spencer Edition
Pretty soon daytime writers are going to have to figure out that they ALIENATE female viewers with this crap. Bill Spencer Jr. has tried to force himself on Donna. He tried to solicit sex from her by offering Eric ‘safety’ from a corporate takeover if she had sex with him (yes, a 100 million dollar company for ‘one night’ of hot sex). He violated her with physical intimidation – standing too close, touching her against her will, you name it.
Bill Spencer has a history of sexual conquest that is FAR WORSE than anything ANY BnB character has experienced, from what we’ve learned. He’s even proud to be a ‘chip off the old perverted block’. Yet he attacks Brooke Logan? Really?
F-U Bill Spencer Jr. (and I guess to the writers too for thinking it was ok to have Bill say something so low).
F-U Katie for betraying your sisters for another low life male (again, I guess I have to give the big F-U to the writers as well).
Neither Ridge NOR Eric has asked the Logan sisters to choose them or little sister Katie. In fact, Ridge was upset about the fact that despite the Forrester’s constant talk of ‘family first’, they were putting the Logan family at risk and could potentially damage the sister’s relationship.
What does that say about the crap-bag Katie is married to!?!?!?! Why do the writers continue to make the fatal error of thinking that viewers enjoy watching women being degraded and humiliated by ‘powerful men’? Just a hint, your ‘powerful men’ don’t look so powerful when they demean women and belittle them. They look weak, and pathetic, hardly the sort of males daytime viewers want to waste time watching. Whatever accolades the writers receive from very few fans for the ridiculous and mind-numbing attacks on women, it hardly makes up for the fans they lose when they pull this stunt.
How many script pages do you think daytime would lose if writers discarded every reference to women as ‘cheap’, ‘slutty’, and other similar sentiments? We could probably reduce the six remaining soaps down to a one hour program… Sad, huh?
