Quote Its not real
Quote countryMomof4: So somehow Christine is supposedly a loser because she has a high profile job that she loves, is well respected in her field, has said that she has dated others but no one seriously etc.
To me, this shows that she is independent and doesn't "need" a man to fulfill her. Not all women want or need a man, a husband or children.
Compare her to Phyllis who can't breathe without Nick, writes salacious gossip for magazine and who uses her children as pawns to reach her personal goals or cover her azz.
IMO, Cricket is already on top.
Excellent post Cmom...... after reading all 8 pages I found what I wanted to say in your post.
I have read so many times how strong and independent Phyllis is and thats why so many respect and love her but we are seeing her crumble and Christine is actually showing those traits but is still being trashed.....
The OP is right about one thing.... Phyllis isnt going anywhere. MS has not been let go. Phyllis will not be burned at the stake but she is not going to come out of this on top. Her lies, crimes and evil ways are going to be out there and she is going to have to deal with that.
It blows my mind that all the traits found in Christine, high profile job, a trained FBI agent, independent, living on her own by choice, not leaning on any man, a strong woman, is all the same traits that certain people say they admire Phyllis for, (when in actual fact, not one of them applies to Phyllis) yet those same people hate those traits in Christine. I have a hard time wrapping my mind around that.
Mind boggling isn't it. That's how society judge people. If you have kids and a husband it makes you someone, no matter how you got it
. If you're independent, with a good job and choose to be alone, you're a looser. Christine is beautiful inside and out, nothing fake, it's what you get. Phyllis not so much, but yet she's praised. NOthing about the woman is pretty, and i'm not talking about her looks, i'm talking about her charcter, evil, nasty and viel with a heart of stone and ice in her vains. If I wanted to watch this crap in big screen, I'll watch Uma Turmen playing poisen Ivy. MS is a good actress, and so are many others, but this isn't emmy worthy. If that's the case we should nominate every single actress or actor who plays a villin role. I have seen others IMO that is more interesting than the Phyllis charcacter.
You know, I don't agree with the bolded statement, but I could accept that as someone's honest opinion if they held that view in every circumstance.
What I find laughable is when someone looks down on Christine for not needing a man then turns around and looks down on Sharon for supposedly needing a man.
Have your opinion, however ridiculous it may seems to me, but please don't change your opinion to whatever it needs to be, just to support your pet character.
I have actually meet people like this, so i'm not doing this to support my pet character. You like Phyllis and I like Cricket. I just don't get why her life has to be brought up to make her look like she's a nobody just to make or prop Phyllis up.
