In Grey's Anatomy, the question around the marriage between Callie and Arizona is facing debates.
The creator, Shonda Rimes, defended her point of view.
On Twitter, a viewer asked for exemple why Grey's Anatomy "panders to the gay/lesbian community," adding that it was "fine. But straight people don't suck, you know."
Shonda Rhimes answered that her and her writers didn't want to pander any community:
"Isn't love universal? Isn't that the point? That you can watch a straight couple in love or a lesbian couple in love and what you see and feel is the LOVE? How is that pandering? Maybe I've been pandering to straight couples all this time. Another thing: one of the reasons I cast the show the way I did is because I like to turn on the TV and see people who look like me living in a world of diversity. I'm betting there's a lesbian girl out there who likes to turn on the TV and see people who love like her too."
It is always a little problem between lesbian TV shows and viewers, a show can represent everyone.
And now the problem is about the marriage. When some people will want that lesbian couples are portrayed, because, of course, we are not different, some of us are married, some of us have children.
But some other lesbians will disagree with a marriage because we don't have the right to all get married so maybe it will be better to show this or because they will feel this too conventional.
What is your point of view? Do you agree with Shonda Rimes? Will you watch passionately or not this scene (in May)?
