Seems like IKEA are really shaking things up this year. In addition to the previously announced TV set, they’re also going to release a digital camera made of cardboard called Knäppa (“Snap”). It’ll hold 40 photographs at a time and plugs directly into your USB port. While it’s not the prettiest camera the world has ever seen, I do love the idea of a screen-less digital camera that brings people back to the wait-and-see days of film.

“After Jerry was born, you turned me away. You stopped wanting me… You wouldn’t let me touch you. When I asked you about it, what did you say?… That having a baby changed you. That you weren’t a sexual person anymore. You made it clear that that part of our…

See we fundamentally disagree about Fitz’s reaction to being denied love. When you are in a marriage I do think you have an expectation of love, intimacy and—yes—that includes the sexual kind (I said expectation, not entitlement). Unless the type of marriage you have is not a sexual one, or you have mutually decided that you no longer want/can’t be sexual, I think this should be explicitly acknowledged. Not being wanted by your partner is a painful thing even if it’s not their fault that they can’t be intimate. That’s a big part of successful a marriages. It wasn’t only sex Fitz was talking about, it was the intimacy that died. That’s what left him bereft. And that’s not unusual for a man.
You blame it on the writers stripping away Fitz’s sympathy by ‘making’ him behave petulantly yet you also admit to not really understanding where he was coming from. I actually thought the writers represented how he would react 100% correctly. What you saw as petulant, I saw as raw emotion. Why is Fitz the only one called petulant when this happens?
It doesn’t matter that Fitz has the love of his life in Olivia, he will irrevocably be tied to Mellie in some way because they are a family. And this episode sealed that. Why do you think even divorced people can still argue passionately even after moving on with others? They have a history and know how to rattle each other. Fitz buried that pain of his loneliness deep inside him for many years. When he found out Mellie’s rejection of him was based on a lie, all of that shit came welling up. You can’t control that, especially since his emotions were already heightened over Karen discovering Mellie and Andrew.
In the end, if you don’t think we’ll see this from the same perspective because our ideology differs, but I wanted to explain a little more.
