    S05.E04: Rebirth

    Griffen (paraphrasing): "I'm looking forward to the day when Jazz's vagina isn't a main topic of discussion anymore." Jazz's siblings are all very supportive, but they must be SO over her as the center of everything in their family. No wonder Griffen is clinging so hard to the new girlfriend. It must be nice to have someone's attention full time. But sorry to burst your bubble Griffen, I don't think Jazz will ever stop talking about her vagina. Especially when it likely becomes apparent that just having one isn't going to solve all her problems and magically make her happy.

    But at this point shouldn't Jazz, of all people, know the difference? I'm not really directing this question towards anyone in particular but, I mean, she's been a pretty prominent face of the transgender community for a while now and this surgery has been something she's wanted for a long time, so knowing the difference between "labia," "vulva," and "vagina" seems pretty basic. She's having this major surgery that will completely transform her genitals and is a bit of a know-it-all when it comes to anything transgender overall, but she can't even get the basics right. The doctor flat out said that Jazz doesn't even know what an orgasm is. But yet, they are going to push ahead with this surgery. It's just so amazing to me. I don't think she's joking when she says she wants a "pretty vagina" as Jazz has shown herself to be very concerned about how she looks, so I think this is another sign of her immaturity and not truly knowing what she's about to get. The doctors aren't helping in that regard either. For her, anything will be better than having a penis, but the fact that the doctors aren't being specific about the end result is a big red flag to me. I just hope it all works out in the long-term.

    And boobs! She wants big boobs too! And to be 5''7. Jazz is just still seems really immature even for all of the things she knows and has experienced. There is like no awareness for her that NO ONE gets to dictate what their perfect body will be and that we all, whether we were born physically as the right gender or not, wish we could change things that we can't. But in her world, she's always been able to get what she wants, so of course she thinks she can control how tall she's going to be and that her vagina will be perfect. It's also a sign of immaturity to me that she's still going on about a "pretty vagina," but the doctors can't even say how they are going to give that to her and she doesn't seem to be able to put two and two together. She must be showing her therapists something other than what she's putting on TV for them to give her the letters she needed for the doctor. Poor Noelle. I live about 20-25 minutes north of Jazz in Palm Beach County (the show annoyingly and inexplicably uses exterior shots of my city even though they are never anywhere close lol) and teach at a local high school, so the Parkland shooting has been a big part of life here as well. It's super scary to just have to TALK about gun safety and what to do if something happens, so I can't imagine what it's like for her and the other students, faculty, and families to have to have endured it. It was great to see the girls having fun and getting ready to go to prom together.

    I thought is was absolutely ridiculous that the doctor could offer no specifics as to what exactly they were doing and how they were approaching Jazz's surgery. I would never allow this on my teenager. They would have to wait until they were eighteen and make the decision on their own. There are far too many unknowns for me to ever be comfortable with allowing my child to undergo something so permanent and irreversible where they don't even really know what they are going to get in the end. I really wish the parents had more willpower and didn't let Jazz run the show so much. Maybe when she's eighteen there'll be less of experimental feel to her type of surgery.

    I didn't intend to partially quote anything. The original post was edited. Looking at the time of both posts, probably while I was typing my post. Just a mistake. I never looked at it again until I saw the notification that my post was quoted. Not a big deal.

    Kelsey needs to put her foot down and put her out. You want to be a grown-up and keep making babies that you have no means and no skills to ever have the means to take care of? Fine. Then you're on your own. So what if Lexus gets mad and keeps the kids away from Kelsey as punishment. How much is enough with these entitled brats? It has to end somewhere. They shouldn't get to use the babies as leverage to keep the parents supporting them. Kelsey needs to take a stand or it'll never end. Yeah, Kelsey bears responsibility for how Lexus was raised, but she's done more than enough for Lexus in helping her with Scarlett. Once can be chalked up to teenage stupidity and immaturity. Twice? Uh-uh. Lexus knows what she's doing. She would be out of my house. Let her take her chances with Shayden. Too bad they've got innocent kids mixed up in their obvious dysfunction.

    S13.E10: A Storm to be Reckoned With

    Irma was a different kind of monster of a storm. In addition to it being the most powerful and largest storm ever recorded, no one could get a track on where it was going, so unless you were in the panhandle of Florida, you had to be concerned about where it was going. The track shifted over and over in the two to three days before landfall and no one knew for sure what to do or where to go. One day the track was up the east coast, the next it was up the west, then the next day it was going up the middle. It shifted literally every twelve hours or so. I'm on the SE coast of the state and it was nervewracking deciding what to do. And the geography of the state combined with the track made evacuation even more difficult because there was only one option in terms of what direction to go: north. Other than back roads, there are like three major north/south highways for millions of people. Usually, hurricanes come from the east or west and go across the state, so you can drive north, but not so far north that it's a pain to get back or south depending on where you are to get out the way, but you couldn't do that with Irma because it was coming from the South moving North. It takes up to 10 hours to drive north out of South Florida to the state line or to get to a point where you can drive east or west. Jen and Bill are further north, so they didn't have to go as far as others. But yeah, Irma was a different beast.

    That is how you handle the birthday of the sibling who's birthday, unfortunately, coincides with the birth of their older sibling's child. Anna's parents should take note. They aren't really acknowledging her feelings at all. Or they are doing such a half-assed job of it. They act like they are scared of upsetting Laura or something. Anna's home life has been disrupted through no fault of her own and Laura could be a little bit more sensitive and acknowledge that rather than acting as if everybody just has to just deal with her and her baby and Tylor. Sorry Laura, you're lucky you have the parents you do because someone with a little more backbone would have told you and Tylor where to go with your smug entitlement.

    I felt so bad for Kiki when Adam and Danielle were fussing at her about taking Riley to the bathroom without telling anyone. She and Dale, more than anyone, on the show at least, do a lot to help them out and them acting that way was a bit much. I don't really buy that moment was genuine because for all their dramatic counting of the kids, no one noticed that an adult was missing as well and didn't put two and two together?

    Plus, Emilee makes some comment, in regards to Diego's mother (family?) about her/it being "easy." Well, of course it's easy for them to be all supportive of her and Diego and not critical. Most of the burden of providing and caring for Emilee and the baby are on Bridget. Bridget has probably been through a lot and done a lot for Emilee and her child and it might be a slap in the face for Emilee to be avoiding her and their family in favor of Diego, who doesn't seem to be providing all that much. It's really irksome how these girls seem to have no consideration for the additional burden they are putting on their parents. Especially the ones with single parents.

    Yeah, it was sort of chilling in the previews how he's all "when Chole is 18, she's MINE and they won't be able to see Chole and Ava anymore."* He's got issues. He doesn't care about Chole, she's just someone/something to be in control of. She's too stupid to see the huge, red flags there. And what the f is with these idiot teen boys and pacifiers?! Diego tonight, talking about how the baby didn't need one. Are they that damn stupid? Do they know what the purpose of the pacifier is? Would they like a screaming baby instead? I can't with these idiots . . . *Maybe that quote plays better than how it sounds . . .

    Respectfully disagree. I don't believe that everything, especially when they are things that have occurred more than once, can be reduced to editing. It could be part of who they are. The editing shows the good and bad of their lives and parenting, but no one, on any of these types of shows, call out the editing for anything positive, only the negative. Why (just asking rhetorically), is the good stuff supposed to be taken as truth even though it's edited as well, but the bad must not be true because of editing? Of course the show is edited, but as the immortal Heather B. of the original "The Real World" once wisely said when it comes to editing (paraphrasing because I can't find the original quote on Google): they can't edit what you haven't already given them" or something to that effect.

    Did you notice how when BOTH her parents set her up for their little lessons on sharing (even though ALL of them were shown screaming and crying at one point about not wanting to share), she passed with flying colors. I loved that she just sat there happily and quietly after Adam and Danielle go on about how they have to keep her close to them, and observed while she had to wait last for her turn in playing with the robot. Even Parker, who was actually whining and not wanting to share got a turn before her. And they didn't even show it, so who knows if she actually got to play with the robot. And then Adam in the playroom with the cookies. I legit thought he only had four and was going to make Riley hand them out but not get one to teach her, but not the others, a special lesson about sharing. But once again, Riley exceeds the low expectations of her surprised parents and has no problem passing out the cookies. I've said it before, but it is wrong how Riley has always been labeled the "bad" one or the "difficult" one by her parents when she's really no better or worse than the rest of them. Yeah, she wasn't wanting to share when they were outside, but ALL of them were not wanting to share. Danielle had to call out Olivia a few times too, but no special lessons or labels for her. Same thing with the painting. Riley gets chastised, but they were all whining at some point and Danielle's sister had to step in and end it. Speaking of, Krystal/Kiki has been shown to be much more firm and effective than her sister. And I think at one point all of them were painting and Danielle was holding Riley back, again reserving punishment and the lesson for just her. And Adam can be so utterly useless sometimes. When they were outside he's talking about how Danielle couldn't handle the stress of the girls fighting (emphasis from both on Riley), but he does absolutely nothing at that moment to help. He does manage to tell Danielle he's going to be there to help, but not that second apparently. And as previously noted, they both sit there and do nothing while the girls continue to fight.

    Sweet Home Sextuplets

    I completely agree with all this. I came into this preparing to dislike them based solely on the names they gave their kids, but I walked away thinking they were pretty genuine and upfront about a lot of topics that other large number multiple families are not. They must have been the most honest couple I've ever seen about the option and decision regarding selective reduction and didn't just do the standard "I would never/leave it up to God" reply. There was an actual discussion about the older kids and how they would be impacted. I found them to be very refreshing in their openness and candor regarding their situation. They seem to be 100 times more sincere and real in their interactions and conversations than the Busbys whose entire existence is as if it were planned for TV from the moment of the quints' conception. The older boys also seemed well-behaved and very close with and adored by their parents.

    All true, and this applies to all of these families, but this is why teens shouldn't have babies when they aren't the ones who are 100% responsible for and taking care of them. They can't make any reasonable claims against their parents as to their maturity and abilities when the parents are the ones doing literally almost everything to take care of their child. Of course, there are going to be boundary issues. If I was one of these parents and I was paying for everything but getting attitude from my irresponsible kid and the do-nothing boyfriend? No way. My kid would know from the jump if that's the attitude you want to take, you can take your child and boyfriend elsewhere and do what you want. You aren't going to take my money and infringe on the peace of my household and tell me what to do. I just don't feel that any of these teens have any room to be nothing but grateful for their parents and the fact that their parents haven't made them parent on their own. Why should the parents be put out any more than they already are? If the teens don't like something, then they are the ones who need to make adjustments, not their parents. And if they don't want to do that, then they can do it on their own. Totally.
