  1. The was hell for me and honestly probably Whit. When I was unemployed I was going fucking crazy because of the lack of structure and socialization opportunities even though I was literally doing hundreds of hours of volunteer work.
  2. Are we supposed to be impressed that a grown human women has had sex? By her age having sex should be as titillating as doing laundry. Hell most of the sex I have with my husband is, eh, do you want to fuck? Like we aren't doing anything else and we haven't had sex in a few days, might as well before dinner?
  3. This is not how relationships work at all.

    What does Whitney do with her time anyways? When I was laid off I volunteered hundreds of hours to charities, does Whit use any of her enormous amount of free time to do anything of value to humanity? I feel like she would share it if she did.

    Seriously what the fuck is this bullshit?
  6. I'm mean she is kind of at the age where a lot of people she knows are married or in serious relationships, being single and having not been in a healthy relationship ever or in a very long time has to feel like a lot of pressure on her.
  7. So far this show has shown Buddy to be a deadbeat, unemployed, controlling, manipulative, an addict, having anger management issues, a criminal record, no real career or prospective career or talents and generally lazy and irresponsible. So now we are supposed to be going for a love plot for these two? Like, what is supposed to be his appeal to Whit & Co? That he is "nice"? Because that obviously isn't true.
  8. Honey when people are telling you that you need to date an unemployed loser recently dumped and in recovery with no career prospects or stability of his own, well, it's not a personal compliment.

    Growing, recover, finding stability, needing to find a new healthy "addiction", how about he spend some time trying to better his life and circumstances? Community college, trade school, volunteering, have we been shown that Buddy has any useful skills besides pouring drinks and getting drunk while doing it which renders the usefulness of it kind of moot. Contrary to popular belief I know plenty of people without college degrees that have good white collar careers because they know how to use Microsoft Office and act like professionals in the workplace.

    One of my best friends is in his early 80s, his house is paid off, no debt, has 7 figures in retirement savings and just quit his job but has made it clear that he is not retiring, he will likely go back into practicing law full time, in fact I was shocked when he quit his job, I figured he would stay in it until he was physically or mentally no longer able to do it. Some people are just built that way.

    OK, did Jazz even have major complications? There was a lot of TV drama but it's not like she became septic, she popped some sutures, it's a common surgery complication with any surgical procedure that was repaired quickly and apparently without any ongoing issues. It's certainly less then ideal but it can happen with pretty much any surgery, it's not like her vagina exploded.

    I know someone who works professionally in trans advocacy and it's really hard to see Jazz doing it, I mean sure there are the big conferences that Jazz has been involved in but most of it is tedious corporate sensitivity training, political lobbying, etc. And while I am sure Jazz has had more than her fair share of hate directed towards her, her life does not resemble the lived experience of almost all trans people which does not involve supportive, affluent parents and blocking puberty.

    Maybe some of it is an act of the TV show but can you imagine Whit in like an actual white collar full-time job? Lazy, entitled, hygiene deficient, always has to be the center of attention, completely incapable of setting or meeting deadlines or setting reasonable expectations of her capabilities, I don't know what she is qualified for even with a college degree. She would be bounced out of my organization in a heartbeat and we have an incredibly lax corporate culture.

    You have been very lucky to not have experienced having to deal with someone whose only qualification of their position at some point had to have been their college degree, that is dumb as a box of hammers, and you are honestly surprised that they graduated from high school.

    I'm still amazed that Whit seems to genuinely think highly of her ability to dance despite her lived experience.
