GET TO KNOW ME MEME: 1/5 female characters » Skyler White
"As an actress, I realize that viewers are entitled to have whatever feelings they want about the characters they watch. But as a human being, I’m concerned that so many people react to Skyler with such venom. Could it be that they can’t stand a woman who won’t suffer silently or “stand by her man”? That they despise her because she won’t back down or give up? Or because she is, in fact, Walter’s equal? But I finally realized that most people’s hatred of Skyler had little to do with me and a lot to do with their own perception of women and wives. Because Skyler didn’t conform to a comfortable ideal of the archetypical female, she had become a kind of Rorschach test for society, a measure of our attitudes toward gender.” -Anna Gunn
I don’t know what to do. I’m a coward. I—I can’t go to the police, I can’t stop laundering your money, I can’t keep you out of this house, I can’t even keep you out of my bed. All I can do is wait. That’s it, that’s the only good option. Hold on. Bide my time. And wait.

I don’t need to hear any of your bullshit rationales. I’m in it now. I’m compromised. But I will not have my children living in a house where dealing drugs, and hurting people, and killing people is shrugged off as ‘shit happens’.
