Holly was freaking adorable with the fringe, but she did look very young with it too.
In regard to Rose: people throw variations of "privileged white girl" at women who bring up sexism all the time and it only supports the patriarchal narrative.
"Don't complain about loss of abortion rights in the US! Look, there are none at all in El Salvador!"
"Who cares about the pay gap? Look at 3rd World women who can't work for pay at all!"
"Shut up about harassment in well-paid STEM! You could be a Latin American illegal immigrant paid pennies as a maid!"
It's all just a smoke bomb to stop female unity. In fact, something funny happened to me with #Me Too, when all these celebrity women came out with their stories. It's like they suddenly lost all the magic of fame to me - they felt like any female human on the street and I felt connected to them. There is no amount of privilege that can protect womyn from this abuse anywhere. Also, famous women have a voice, so it's commendable when they use it for this purpose. You have to remember that it's "privileged" women in the 1st and 2nd wave who were instrumental in breaking barriers for all of us - simply because they had more opportunity. An exceptionally privileged lady commissioned the Pill. Feminist lecture over and out....
Esmeralda, in regard to Cole: most fans seem to be gaga over the whole relationship and see it as a grand romance as well. Only you, I and 1 other fan has ever mentioned that it's a story of prolonged abuse. Majority opinion isn't always the most accurate.
I've seen little bits of Fuller, and he seems to be in the same category as Krause: nothing much to offer. The reason that neither of them annoy me the way JM does is that they did not get the long list of leading man gifts from mother nature like JM did. To me, natural ability comes with a responsibility to use it well. JM squandered it spectacularly. Instead of waiting for some worthwhile vehicle to come along (which he could afford with his posh background), he jumped on a bottom-feeder offering which would classify as 100 hours of misogynist hate speech in a just world. I cannot get that sewer content back out of my head, so it retroactively ruined whatever limited goodwill I had towards him in this show originally. All of his sex appeal went "Poof!" once I heard him spew and perform relentless MRA nonsense on his next job. He now seems slimy, ugly and profoundly unethical. Not altogether bright either, because he had the nerve to call that stuff well-written...
Holly's made me proud however. I'm really enjoying Pretty Little Liars, and she now holds the remarkable record of having starred in 2 of the longest-running shows with all-female leads. She's also a truly talented chameleonic actress because her character on that show is completely different in mannerisms to Piper. Quoting Phoebe: "You go, girl!" :-))
