a strong female character is one who is defined by her own characteristics, history and personality, and not solely by the actions or needs of other characters. she is a person in the story, not a prop. x
“I always doubted auditioning because of my weight. I’ve always acted and pursued theater – it was something I had always wanted to do when I was young. But I felt I would be rejected because of my physical appearance. Orange is the New Black has given me the opportunity to show that I have curves and I have talent too. It’s been a battle, you know, because I’ve never been skinny. But I’ve embraced it. Now I have the opportunity to show everyone that this is sexy. I can dress in the same attire as someone else and carry myself in a sexy manner, a beautiful manner and a prideful manner. What matters is how I play the role – not my size.”

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again.
Tyler is not slut shaming Caroline. He’s mad because he thought that maybe Caroline would still respect their defunct relationship by not sleeping with the guy who turned him into a hybrid, took away his free will, killed his friends, and killed his mother. Oh, and sentenced him to a life of paranoia and only allowed him to “come back” because you know, maybe he was in a good mood that day. Seriously. Klaus was the chess master of Tyler’s life, playing with it because he had the power and he was mad for that whole unsiring hybrids business.
Caroline telling him to “get over it or get out of my life” is pretty fucked up when she comforted Tyler after Klaus killed his mom and Tyler blamed himself for it.
Like I’ve said, if this were Jesse or some random guy, I could see why Caroline would be pissed at Tyler when he had walked away that last time. Then we could all chant “you go girl!” and snap our fingers. Instead, I shake my head and say you reap what you sow, Caroline.
(Yes, I’m pissed at Tyler for biting Nadia in the heat of the moment as I loved her character but it wasn’t in a moment of “i’m gonna do this for shits and giggles”. She was attacking Caroline, he protected her. What a monster. I’m sure other characters would be applauded if they did that. Like I said, still sad that Nadia’s gone but Tyler meant to protect Caroline, not necessarily kill Nadia.)
