Lots of re-blogging of Breaking Bad because I’m watching it now and I’m obsessed.
Also, people that hate Skylar for being a “bitch” are idiots. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to be upset with your husband for lying to you, having a second secret phone, cooking meth, murdering people, missing the birth of your daughter and all the ultrasounds, trying to make you into a bad guy, forcing you to stay with him, putting you and your entire family in danger of either being killed or arrested, treating you like you’re an idiot, being insensitive, selfish, power-hungry, scary, and lots of other adjectives. I could go on. Sure, maybe she’s isn’t the sweetest, most likable character, but how can you justify calling her unreasonable or a bitch?
And that’s another thing… So horrified and tired of seeing all these tumblr posts calling her a bitch or a cunt. Misogynist/sexist much? She’s a bitch for being rational and having a moral compass? People that think Walt is badass and the best character seriously need to stfu. Like… If you think that cooking meth and murdering people and lying to everyone you love is cool then you should probably be psychologically examined. You don’t have to like Skylar, but I think calling her a bitch is a little unjustified; any normal person would be reacting the same way she is. And I bet if the roles were reversed people would still be calling her those names. And I bet if Walt had an affair, everyone would think he’s badass or applaud him for “getting it” or something. Double standards, man… Pissing me off.
If you’re going to hate her, hate her for legitimate reasons rather than just “she’s a bitch” or “she had an affair.” Wow, she had an affair? When her husband is off murdering people and making/selling drugs? What a terrible person she is! And I’m in no way condoning cheating on people, but the same people that hate her because of that, think Walt’s a badass for doing lots of terrible things.
Also, if you’re other logic is that she doesn’t appreciate Walt’s sacrifice, I think we can all agree that Walt is beyond just doing what he does for his family. It is very clear that he likes being powerful and intimidating.
Just curiously I browsed the Skylar White tag on Tumblr, and Jesus Christ, the shit people say about her is fucking ridiculous. I may be upset over a fictional character, but I feel like it goes deeper than that to a level of crazy misogyny and trying to place blame on someone. She’s just a “dumb bitch” who “doesn’t appreciate Walt’s sacrifice”. Are you kidding me?
The internet hates Skylar White for being a rational human being and disapproving of her husband’s drug-dealing and murdering tendencies
and I just don’t get it.
