"I was never a fan of how Weaver was treated when she first came in season 2. Everyone made her out to be this horrible person when really she was just doing her job and what she felt was best."
So, I’m rewatching S3 and in the first few episodes, she try’s to install a new board system to preserve patient privacy and protect staff from potential lawsuits, but since the staff doesn’t wanna take time to learn the new system, it’s trashed. She wants to haw biweekly meetings to keep staff up to date, it’s dismissed. After a difficult patient for staff not her, she suggests moving security closer to where staff actually works, and is flat out refused.
Then when a new chief of staff show up, we find out that she’s handling almost all the shared responsibilities between her and Mark Green.
She literally takes her job seriously and expects other to do the same.
What a monster.

Watching Helix, the Syfy show
And I’m so irked by it. 8 main characters, 3 of whom are (white) women, and 1 Asian man.
All the PoC (main & recurring) are villains, and the only non-traditionally attractive (white) woman is killed off…
Prolly not gonna finish it, but its all I have to watch atm.

Is anyone else sick of the jerk genius?
You know the one. He’s unprofessional, lazy, selfish and rude, and even makes frequent sexist and racist remarks against the people around him, but that’s OK, because he’s a genius. He’s the best doctor/detective/scientist around, so everyone will put up with his jerkitude. Respect for others is the foolish pastime of the less intelligent.
We’re clearly meant to admire these (exclusively male) characters, or at least be amused by their social ineptitude. Their dismissive attitude to others, and especially their sexist jokes to others, are aspirations. They’re geniuses, observant and intelligent. They are just telling it like it is!
Which is one of the reasons I really love Sherlock Holmes in new CBS drama, Elementary. Yes, he’s a genius, and yes, he’s kind of a jerk at times. But he isn’t allowed to get away with it. His rudeness, his laziness… these are clearly character flaws, and his (female!) partner isn’t afraid to call him on his nonsense. And in return, he says things he shouldn’t, but he also respects her, he listens to her, and he even apologizes for things that he does. He isn’t a genius running rampant in the city, above the concerns of all the other silly humans. He’s an intelligent, observant, but flawed human, and he has to follow the same laws of decency as the rest of us.
"Jerk Geniuses" by Feminist Fiction. (via seeyash)
I was tired of this trope since 2009, when I read about the Genius Wrangler trope.
We need to stop admiring the (usually male, always white) genius as he abuses people who already live with societal abuse. It’s not funny or cute. It shouldn’t be admired or replicated utilizing ‘intelligence’ as an excuse for bullying and cruelty. If you’re smart then you shouldn’t actively be for an ass to already marginalized people. How’s that for intelligence?
