Shonda Rhimes Empowers Daughters To Have "Amazing Sex"

In Shondaland, women reign supreme. They win Emmys, they dominate the ratings, and they have hot sex. All hail Queen Shonda.

Powerhouse showrunner Shonda Rhimes (Scandal, Grey's Anatomy, How to Get Away With Murder...so, basically, every single show you watch on Thursday night) appears in the October issue of Women's Health, where she talked about the stigma of sexuality that women face, both on and off-screen.

Rhimes discussed how viewers are somehow desensitized to violence on television, but sex is still treated like some shameful secret. As she perfectly put it, "I have three daughters, and I find it fascinating that you can shoot someone in the face on network television, show the whole thing, watch their brains fly out of the back of their head, and no one blinks. But people are shocked when you show anybody having sex. I hope my daughters grow up to have amazing sex. I really do. I do not hope they grow up to shoot someone in the face. You know what I mean?"

The television game-changer (who also talked about re-claiming the word "girlie" to mean "something pretty badass") said, "I feel like there are ways to represent women owning their sexuality and having a strong point of view about it and it not being this taboo thing that’s hidden in some closet somewhere."

Is there a way to move to Shondaland, where Empress Shonda rules only with logic and breaks down barriers? Honestly, things sound pretty great there.
