I still can't get over how badly LJ mishandled Liz's sexually assult/going after/harassment storyline. I was thinking about it today when I was reading article about my school's rape counselor. She said that in the ten years she worked at my school she has never counseled a victim of rape who was attacked by a stranger. And yet so many people still assume that rape and other kinds of sexual assault only happen to women who walk alone at night.

I just find it so frustarting that Liz's story which could have been an eye opener to the fact that sexual assualt is most often perpetrated by coworkers, friends, acquaintences. Instead it was down played. Liz wasn't assualted she was only sexually harrased or just "went after" (whatever that means). We never see any resolution are told that Liz went to the police and somehow with very little evidence Howard got locked up and they threw away the key. And she went to a shrink a few times and now she's fine. Really she's fine! (does LJ realize that not everyone reads those stupid letters?) And worst of all was the fact that this whole scenario was just a stepping stone for Granthony to guilt Liz into breaking up his marriage.

Actually the worst thing is that LJ is complety clueless as to where she went wrong.
