Subject: I don't read many boards but I don't get how Blair is being cruel.
In reply to: lucy 's message, "Why is Blair always judged by impossibly high standards than Todd? For years, its always been Todd can do no wrong, and Blair can do no right. Even now, when Todd tosses Starr aside like a rag doll in a fit of blind rage, Blair is the one who gets bashed all over the web as an evil cruel shrew. I think Ron Carlivati's writing is very pro-Blair, but people still bash Blair. I do not get it. I wish I did, but I don't. It just makes me so sad. Its like Blair can never catch a break." on 17:33:37 05/18/08 Sun

Blair was all alone when she was a teenager and can feel that Starr needs her and she wants to find her. Starr did try to tell Blair but Todd interrupted. She can see Todd is out of control and with his actions on Friday he proved she was right for trying to protect Starr from him. Todd knew he was on a pier with a staircase. He knew it was Starr he was pushing but all he was consumed with was beating up Cole. A teen-age boy. I know Todd loves Starr.. just like he loves Blair. But his love for Blair has never stopped him from hurting her and doing horrible things to her. That is what Todd thinks love is. Now Blair is seeing that she is not the only one he treats that way. It is spreading to their children. To Todd loves seems to include violence and control. I guess from being raised by Peter Manning. Blair was raised alone and seems to want better for her children. To me that is being a good parent, not being cruel. Todd isn supposed to be an adult and Starr the child. Todd did not mean to hurt Starr, but he is responsible. He threw her down those stairs and he knew they were there.

[> [> Just a guess, but I think the Blair backlash is based more on upcoming spoilers than it is on what she's already done. (click for spoiler) -- Cathy, 04:34:06 05/19/08 Mon

she will tell everyone in open court that Todd paid her to marry him so he could get custody of Sam. This will cause Sam to be put into Child Protective Services and taken away from Todd. I think this action is what many people view as "cruel" and overkill.

[> [> I guess that I'm numb to the backlash. I saw someone say on a board that Starr should haven't gotten near those stairs with him like that. Aka, if she hadn't been on those stairs, he wouldn't have shoved her. Her own fault. SHE should have known better??? Pffft, whatever. I don't buy that and I kind of worry for anyone who would think that. IOAS, but still... that's not good thinking. -- OTWB, 13:34:41 05/19/08 Mon

So whatever, Blair's doing what she thinks is right and IMHO, choosing to support your child over ANY man is not only right, but I think its the best decision any mother could make.

[> [> [> thanks guys for the insight. I think I will just keep to this board and television without pity for awhile because I can not handle reading posts criticizing Blair for being Starr's biggest protector and defender in all of this. I am not strong enough to keep my italian temper in check. -- lucy, 15:51:17 05/19/08 Mon
