PS on B&B and Maya’s story

Last week, I sketched out a number of concerns I had about the story on The Bold and The Beautiful about Maya’s story, and the revelation that Maya is transgender.

A few days after I’d initially posted that entry, I thought maybe I’d overreacted about some of it, particularly how Maya’s trans status was being used as a secret and as a “dun dun dun!” plot point.

Then I saw this.

Huh. Not overreacting at all.

B&B’s storytelling past (the breakneck speed with which romantic couples change course) doesn’t bode well for a slow burn of a story, or the somewhat contemplative touch this probably needs.

I’m willing to be surprised by B&B. But so far, the red flags just keep popping up.
