Joint Couple Post: Jenny and Shane.

From now until the end of the year, each week Shane and I are going to take a famous couple (whether it’s fictional or not) , go off of their style, and incorporate it into our own for a joint post. Five months ago (I can’t believe this has only been going on for five months), Shane and I were searching for names for our new blog we were working on. We tried EVERYTHING when all of a sudden the name Les Girls spoke to us. It made sense at the time. We’re a couple both IRL and in SL and like most of our bisexual and lesbian friends, we would watch and discuss a show called The L Word. At the time when the show was first on, it was innovative. It was special. I’ve never seen a show that portrayed lesbian and bisexuals in such a way before. We were lawyers, writers, athletes, in the corporate world, everywhere. For me personally, the L word gave me the ability to accept myself for who I am and not be ashamed to love anyone whether it’s a male or female. It made me realize I’m not the only one out there and it is OK to be myself and love myself. The L Word meant something to us and thus Les Girls was a perfect name to give back in a way to a show that gave to us. Jennifer Schecter and Shane McCutcheon are two of our favorites. Despite the terrible ending, Shenny was a great testimony of friendship. And so for our first couple try if you will, Shane and I are going to attempt to bring Shenny back in a positive light and ignore the whole Jenny dying thing.


Shane says:
At one point, The L Word was deemed to be the change of television. I can’t lie, having gorgeous women on screen who fucked other women instead of overweight bulldogs was an exciting step for the LGBT community. No, it really was. As the years went on, the dialog got worse, the storylines became abysmal and far too many characters were created to fill the void of the biggest mistake in the writers’ professional lives. Throughout, Jenny Schecter was my favourite character. I hated her, but she was my favourite because of that, since I had slim to no opinion on a lot of the others. (What the hell were Mark or Max?) In season 2, Jenny was teamed up with Shane for what is deemed one of the best friendships for the series, and in season 6 that led to them getting together via the most ridiculous reasoning ever – Shane didn’t want to hurt Jenny. Don’t get me wrong, I was probably one of the only people who understood where Shane was coming from with it, but the relationship was too much too soon, and culminated in the pointless puzzle of Who Killed Jenny? All that said, their friendship was true, based on the both of them being as fucked up as each other, never striving for perfection. Team Shenny.
