In this case, P.C. stands for 'Poor Characterization'  
Oh, SVU, why do you beat me when I usually love you so?

Thank you, so much, for the horrible flaming wreckage of the latest 9 o'clock episode. Thank you for using every worthless, excruciating trope in an episode about lesbians that was-- at best-- a truly grotesque parade of stereotypes. At worst, it seems like a deliberate perpetuation of said, complete with Olivia's over-acted 'passing' for a dyke and the 'loud-mouthed' gay female activitist who ends up kissing a man at the very end.

Oh, it hurt to watch that. It makes me want to scream, to know why someone would intentionally write such hateful, blithering crap.

Stick to your hookers, your law-firm homicides, and your bizarre domestics disbutes. Something you know, you actually know about.

My roommate was watching this episode in the other room and I wandered in for the interrogation scene and was like... well, this is absurd, and walked right out again. Strangely enough, though, I saw the lady from SVU on the street not two days ago.

Oh, I wish I had walked out or turned it off. Unfortunately, Wednesday night is the night my brother and I "bond" by watching SVU. He was just as mortified, but I guess he couldn't really believe anyone would be so phenomenally stupid, so he kept insisting I stay. 'They'll fix it, I bet they'll fix it,' he kept saying. When they didn't I told him he just damn well better bring me some chocolates for next week, to ease my trauma.

Really? That's weird! The female detective, played by Marishka whatshername? Normally, I really love watching her, but everything about that episode was cringe-worthy. I need ret-con.
