I don’t want to get too mired in the topic of Shonda Rhimes’ How to Get Away with Murder right now, because I have major issues with the show that having nothing to do with its progressiveness that I want to discuss in a separate post, but it’s hard not to appreciate how willing Shonda Rhimes is to go to the mat for the drama’s politics. Rhimes’ shows may wear may patience down, but the woman herself is incredibly cool (see, e.g., her appearance on The Mindy Project last week, where she honored and mocked both her and Mindy Kaling’s alma mater, Dartmouth).

Anyway, this week, Rhimes took an assole to task on Twitter for objecting to the show’s risque “gay scenes.”

And that’s the kind of showrunner participation on Twitter we should all be applauding: Shaming bigots. Good for you, Rhimes. I wish your shows didn’t piss me off so much (for entirely different reasons).
