All right, I haven’t done this in a while, but it’s time for a GH rant.

First of all, this three-way thing is the dumbest thing I have ever seen on a soap. I’ve seen aliens, time travels, the devil, etc. and this trumps it all. But if the three-way itself isn’t bad enough, GH goes and has it be between all three gay guys on the show. Really though? I don’t understand why GH has all of their gay characters be weird and kinky and ho-ish. Stereotyping much? Days of Our Lives did the gay storyline right. Their two, main, gay characters are your everyday guys, not stereotypical in the least. Ryan Carnes, Marc Anthony Samuel and Parry Shen are far too talented to be doing a storyline like this. 

Then, GH throws Milo into the mix. When he started talking to Sonny about his father not approving who he wanted to be with, I literally bounced in my seat. Milo is actually gay and wants Felix!! I was so happy about this for less than 24 hours until I watched today’s episode and it turns out that Mile actually like, Epiphany, not Felix. What a disappointment. Then again, GH has been full of disappointments these last, oh, I don’t know, 2 years, I think? When did those OLTL writers come on again? Between the bad writing and all of these soap jumpers taking over, it doesn’t even seem like General Hospital anymore.

Getting back to Milo, what a waste. What a waste of a good storyline it could have been for him and Felix. Putting Milo with Epiphany? What? What are these writers thinking? That’s worse than Ava and Morgan. What a waste of a character itself, really. Then again, GH is famous for wasting good characters (e.g. Trey, Connie, Rafe, shall I go on?)

Which reminds me, my mom and I are still pissed that they killed off Rafe. Again, what a waste. /endrant 

I am pissed about Rafe too; but as a Black gay man, inundated with depictions of White gay life, it’s nice that General Hospital has diversified its canvas. I also appreciate that the story for the gay characters, is being told sensitively, by a gay man, who is bold enough to delve into some of the things that many of us do discuss sexually, in real life. On the kink scale… I doubt that a threeway would even rate AS a 3!

We all have our frustrations about storylines, but I’ve been watching General Hospital since the 90s. Save Clare Lebine’s excellent stint back then, this is the best General Hospital has ever been. It is not only best written & most entertaining of all the soaps, the canvas features a level of diversity, in the main cast & supporting cast, presently unparalleled in daytime.

Given the Bold and the Beautiful’s story about berries that make you horny, the Young and the Restless’ story about a thieving chipmunk, Days invoking Satanic Marlena, and EVERYTHING about Passions, consenting adults talking about having a threesome does not register as ridiculous.

Milo loves Epiphany and not Felix? what the hell?!

mistersirstonecold:

I was so excited for the Milo/Felix pairing but now Milo and Epiphany will have a back burner boring relationship. And now poor Felix is alone again.

I was bothered by that too, for a second; but then I liked Milo being interested in my girl Epiphany. I like the thought that you don’t have to look a certain way, to attract a man who looks a certain way. Humans are deeper than that. I also like that the storyline headed off at the pass, potential viewer problems with “making Milo gay.” Felix couldn’t express interest in LIPSTICK without incident. He didn’t need that shit!

Police chief rips Obama remarks

theorlandojones:

Another lying asshole —

Pasco said both police and members of the public are entitled to due process but said he is not convinced police have used excessive force in Ferguson.  

"I’m not there, and neither is the president," Pasco said. "That is why we have due process in the United States. And this will all be sorted out over time. But right now, I haven’t seen anything from afar — and maybe the president has — that would lead me to believe the police are doing anything except to restore order.”
