Quote Deana4Villy: One of the last SODs had the editors stating that Y&R really missed the chance to tell a powerful story with Daisy's rape of Daniel. It went on to say "just like Chelsea drugged and raped Billy". When I read that, it was like, "thank you!". Finally, someone who mIght matter to TPTB echoing what we've been saying all along on this thread.
Did u read the article about GH and how all the show is doing right now is telling too many rape stories but that as always they don't make it about the victims but the rapist themselves and the people around them it affects. They are like if GH is not going to do justice to these rape stories then don't tell them at all cause all they are doing is insulting real life rape victims, which is so true.
The article also mentioned that they know that GH can tell a good rape story if they wanted to cause they remember years ago how they told a very good and genuine rape story about how when Elizabeth (GH) was raped that they remember how well that story was very well written because they focused on her and her alone with Lucky (GH) trying to help her through it.
This is so true cause in the last 3 years since I really started watching GH apart from the Michael being raped in Prison story, in just 2012 alone there has been 3 rape stories. First with Sam and then twice with Kate.
When u think about a Guy like Billy who used to be a Player and drink a lot but we know he would never rape anyone and for someone like Chelsea to accuse him of doing something like that, you could just imagine how torn he was about it cause he doesn't remember about what happened. To make it even worst Chelsea accused him of rape right in front of his Wife. Then of course we did found out that she did falsely accuse him of rape and that she was the actual rapist.
This didn't make things any easier either cause it turned out then that she was pregnant with his Child. So what did the Writers chose to do with the story, they sugar coat it by saying that Chelsea seduce Billy instead of telling it like it is which is that she raped him. Oh sure but with Chelsea it was OK for them to say that Billy had raped when he didn't.
I just don't know why the Writers insist on treating Billy & Daniel being raped as a joke especially since the end result was with them Fathering Kids that they didn't plan for and where the Mothers should be a shame of themselves for committing such a heinous crime. Gee I wonder what Chelsea will tell her son if he were to find out the truth one day and not to mention Daisy, although she is gone now. I certainly wouldn't want to be in Chelsea & Daisy's shoes, if a day like that were to come for me & my Child.
