More on why Grey’s Anatomy is an amazing, radical show:
- Everyone is a sexual being regardless of age, race, gender, orientation, physical ability, or body size. And every pairing is a possibility and at this point is probably canon.
- It features actual, vocal discussions about domestic abuse, ptsd, discrimination, etc., discussions where characters call people out and learn and grow.
- They actually fired the actor who plays a main character in the middle of a season for using hate speech on set.
- The music is perfect. In season 10, a particularly nostalgic season, every episode ended with a weepy, dreamy cover of an 80s pop song.
Edit: ALSO, the moral of the entire show is basically love makes a family. You’ve got great adoptive parents and shitty biological ones and great friends and divorce and support systems and it’s just basically great.
Like remember when Callie, a not-thin (though still hot) latina woman was having casual sex with the hottest guy on the show while figuring out her feelings for an older woman? Remember that?
