Everyone is entitled to their opinions. That said, Sami has NEVER acted as a rape victim around EJ since that night. She voluntairily "hung around" him, and befriended him. She VOLUNTAIRILY and without doubt made love to him and then gave birth to their second child (or maybe third). Rape victims do not make love to their rapists. Not to mention that she gravitated towards him even when she was married to Lucas. Forgotten is too, that EJ and Sami were friends, much like Rafe and Sami right now, for a year before that incident. So based on the storylines before and after the so called rape, for those of us that have been watching and following their storyline, Ejami is very much in the right to be a couple. Not everyone HAS to like it, but a great many of us do, and everyone else they are paired with are just "fluff".

I think the banners for RINR are tacky. I don't believe for one second the banners are made to help victims express their opinions of a storyline or character pairing. I believe they are made by those who want their couple together, Lucas and Sami, and not another, EJ and Sami, and this is the way they have chosen to express it. How is my thinking this rude? After all, this is a tv show and there are of plenty of real life victims they could be making banners to support instead of this silly fictional one.
As for Nicole, she may have given Sydney to her father, but she has lied and deceived the man she supposedly loves and married while doing so. If she was doing the right thing, why has she not told EJ the truth? Surely he would be happy with her for reuniting him with his daughter right? Why the continued lies?
I don't agree with Sami's actions at all, but I do see where she is coming from in wanting to keep her daughter away from Stephano.
Sami is not a loser, she just continues to make bad decisions.
Really? You don't believe it? When their banners clearly state "Rape is not Romance" and you interpret it to mean that they just want another couple and it has nothing to do with rape at all? You don't see how your statements can be seen as insulting and rude?
Try to bear in mind somewhere in America, a woman is raped every 2 minutes and 1 in every 6 women will be raped or sexually assaulted in their lifetime. Some of them just might have an aversion to seeing a love story play out between a rape victim and her attacker.
I might not get what Rafe sees in Sami but I have no issues with her falling in love with him, he's an attractive nice man that had never abused her or any of her family. Sami should just be grateful she has a man like Rafe to lean on.
This is a fictional show. We enjoy Ejami and we're not going anywhere. Other fanbases know it and can't stand it. IT'S THE TIMING of when these banners come out. It's WHEN IT'S CLEAR THAT EJAMI ARE NOT FINISHED. Whenever there is interraction that makes that evident, RIGHT ON CUE, the banners, the hate posts, everything nasty and rude comes out. If you feel so strongly about rape, do something productive about it in the real world. And have the same cuourtesy towards others as you want them to have towards you - let them enjoy their couple as you wish to enjoy yours.
Note that I have no banner. IMO there is nothing tacky or rude about the RINR banners. If anyone wants to use one they are entitled. I think it is ironic that the EJami fans even have an issue with them. The rape happened. Its part of EJ and Sami's past. IMO it's the most significant thing that had happened to them or will ever happen to them. When I see them together all I can think is, "OMG Sami! That man RAPED YOU!"
I don't need a banner to remind me of it. IMO there is nothing tacky about those banners; if anything is tacky and rude it is the idea of EJami as a romantic couple.
I'm neither a Lumi or a Safe fan
and right now I'm only luke warm about EJ and Nicole. My opposition to EJ and Sami as a couple has nothing to do with another pairing. My disgust for them as a couple is solely contingent on their terrible history and the utter lack of romantic or sexual chemistry between the two actors.
Safe might just be 'safe' but today's show was cute and light and just what the show needed and I'm willing to give Sami and Rafe a chance.
