For women only: What’s wrong with us?
I am a huge fan of The Closer. Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson is a strong, capable woman. I fancy myself as such a woman. That’s probably why in reality I am, in fact that...I attract it. That’s a conversation for another day, that doesn’t just apply to women.
There is a scene in an old Closer, where this sick, twisted fire bug–Bill Croelick, that Brenda once put away, gets into her house and threatens her. Right in the middle of Bill’s ‘visit’s’, Fritz, the gorgeous, strapping, FBI agent that is married to Brenda, comes home and the pyromaniac flees. I am screaming at the television “thank God that Fritz is home, he will kick that guy’s ass and protect her... She doesn’t even tell him. Man! Fritz notices that the dinner table candles are lit but Brenda lies and tells him that she lit them for him. I understand that the show staff couldn’t write it the way I wanted, because she is supposed to be very self-reliant. Being the Deputy Chief of Police leaves no room for weak knees. She can’t be a sniveling simp that goes to her husband for protection. So this begs the question: why do we want the man to protect us, but yet want to do everything and be enduring all on our own? Isn’t that having it two ways at once? I am so confused right now.... But that is every woman I know, including me. My husband is able bodied and scares danger away with a look, but he better not stick his nose in my business, because I can handle...myself! That’s right!
I look forward to getting down to the bottom of this subject with other women.
Cute, isn't he? But his character is not!
