It's almost embarrassing to admit that up until recently, I watched The Bold and The Beautiful religiously. I followed the story of Rick and Maya with intense interest, hoping that CBS would treat Maya and her transformation with respect while using it as a plot devise. I feel that CBS did justice to the transgender part of GLBT, but what followed this couple's 'happily for a little while' (after all this is a soap opera) was nothing short of offensive.
I thought we would be dealing with your standard love triangle in regards to Liam, Ivy, Steffy, and Wyatt. I was indignant to say the least when it was revealed that Ivy wanted Liam to marry her for immigration purposes. This is illegal, immoral, and a slap in the face to each and every one of us that is stuck in this immigration nightmare. My husband, best friend, and father of my only child has been waiting for more than half a decade to be granted the opportunity to return to the USA to be with his family. When you take into consideration my personal experience and exquisite torment that is living without your soul mate, one can see why I find this plot line infinitely more disrespectful than TLC's 90 Day Fiance.

I know it has been a long time since I have done anything with my blog and I always say that I'm going to go update everything that has happened, but this time I mean it. This time I am going to deliver on that promise. Do you know why I plan to deliver this time after all those broken promises? It's because I am mad as hell and I am not going to hold it in anymore.
We submitted the waiver to the lockbox back in October only to get an RFE in the mail at the beginning of March. The RFE requests a ridiculous amount of information, most of which should be in the goddamned file already since it probably has it's very own filing drawer by now. The waiver we submitted in October was 900 pages long for fucksakes.
