I’m SO angry I can barely speak.
TWICE Game of Thrones has taken consensual sex scene and turned them into rape scenes.
First with Daenerys. Khal Drogo doesn’t touch her in the books until she says, “YES.” But nope, in the show he just does whatever he wants with her! And that’s why her devotion to him in the show seems so off-tilt. She fell in love with her rapist on the show. That’s not the sun-and-stars we see in the books. The Khal Drogo in the books respected Dany.
And then in the books, Cersei clearly WANTED to hook up with Jaime in the sept, she was the one goading him on and she said, “YES,” only like 50 million times. And yet, in this episode, she’s saying, “NO,” a million times, struggling, clearly fighting Jaime off and he rapes her.
AND THIS DOESN’T FIT. IT’S NOT OKAY. IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE. KHAL DROGO RAPING DANY COMPLETELY MAKES THEIR RELATIONSHIP ON THE SHOW TOTAL NONSENSE. JAIME LANNISTER—AS ARROGANT AS HE IS—IS NOT THE KIND OF MAN WHO WOULD EVER RAPE A WOMAN IN THE BOOKS. HE CLEARLY EVEN WARNS BRIENNE IN THE BOOKS TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET RAPED BY ANYONE BECAUSE HE’S WORRIED ABOUT HER.
THIS is rape culture. When a TV show takes consensual sex scenes and turns them into rape and expects us to accept it like it’s romantic or “hot” when it’s disgusting and wrong and stomach-churning.
The rapes didn’t happen in the books?! Why the fuck was something as important as consent a detail that was changed?!
To my understanding the man was a poc and the woman was white. The rape of a white woman by a brown man fits in with the classic story of some monstrous villain kidnapping a pure and innocent woman. At least that’s what I’ve heard.
what she says: i’m fine
what she means: I’m staring into a lightless abyss. Steve Rogers’ unconditional loyalty to Bucky Barnes has made me a shell of a human being; the fact that Bucky saved Steve’s life without even really knowing who he was has crushed my soul. If you’re not here to talk to me about the winter soldier, don’t talk to me at all. I’m with you til the end of the line, pal.
