INCANDASCENT ENTHUSIASM

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

my favourite word privileged people say is ‘if’

'if someone came up to me and said…'

'if i got bullied for who i was…'

'if the roles were reversed…'

like we don’t get ifs, we are getting harassed on the street, we are getting attacked, we are in the marginalised group who you have power over I don’t care about your hypothetical fucking situation

When something bothered me, I didn’t talk with anyone about it. I thought it over all by myself, came to a conclusion, and took action alone. Not that I really felt lonely. I thought that’s just the way things are. Human beings, in the final analysis, have to survive on their own.

I used to analyze myself down to the last thread, used to compare myself with others, recalled all the smallest glances, smiles and words of those to whom I’d tried to be frank, interpreted everything in a bad light, laughed viciously at my attempts ‘to be like the rest’ –and suddenly, in the midst of my laughing, I’d give way to sadness, fall into ludicrous despondency and once again start the whole process all over again – in short, I went round and round like a squirrel on a wheel.

Life is a question of nerves, and fibres, and slowly built-up cells in which thought hides itself and passion has its dreams. You may fancy yourself safe and think yourself strong. But a chance tone of colour in a room or a morning sky, a particular perfume that you had once loved and that brings subtle memories with it, a line from a forgotten poem that you had come across again, a cadence from a piece of music that you had ceased to play… I tell you, that it is on things like these that our lives depend.

*whispers* You can be mature and respectful and still have a dirty sense of humour.

*murmurs* You can curse a lot and still be highly intelligent with a massive vocabulary.

*mumbles* You can be quiet and reserved and still be witty and even outgoing in certain circles.

*sighs* You can be intelligent and sharp-minded and still forget what month it is
