i think sexism in rock music is definitely something that should be addressed but the only genre that ever gets slammed for misogyny is rap I wonder why

Soo Sunny Park (b. Seoul, Korea) - Unwoven Light at Rice University’s Rice Gallery in Houston, Texas. Composed of 37 individual sculptural units, the installation uses iridescent plexi-glass embedded in pieces of a chain link fence to cast shimmering, colorful reflections across the spacious gallery.

People criticizing TFIOS because Gus sounds pretentious???

that was the point???

like literally at his fake funeral his best friend talks about how fucking pretentious he is and how annoying it was???

It was one of his character flaws? He was deliberately written that way?

You’re not being clever or critical by pointing it out, you are literally stating a fact about the novel that the author deliberately wrote

tbh I’m really sick of tumblr’s attitude of “i’m more oppressed than you so I’m going to be an asshole to you and you’re not allowed to get upset about it”

You know, Mako, all those years I spent living in the past, I never really thought about the future. Until now. I never did have very good timing.

Both situations played out as rape. Harsh, violent, and dark. They were supposed to be uncomfortable. You are supposed to be uncomfortable watching a young girl forced to marry a warrior who can’t even speak her language. You are supposed to be uncomfortable watching a grieving woman have sex with her brother near the corpse of her son. Those scenes should not be sexy, passionate, or romantic like some here are naive enough to argue.

The alter scene was always rape.

It was rape in the books and in the show. Cersei was grieving, this was the first time she saw Jaime in months, she didn’t even know if he was real or a dream, he took advantage of her.

In the books she gave him a chaste kiss, seeking affection and non-sexual comfort as she is grieving for Joffrey, Jaime is just horny and starts to kiss her sexually, to which she says “no”, she tells him she doesn’t want him to kiss her, but he continues.

That is rape.

He kisses her to stop her talking, silencing her verbal protests, and then ignoring her physical protests, until she gives into him.

It changes nothing if she wanted it later, she made it clear she didn’t want it, so it is rape, end of discussion.

The book scene is from Jaime’s perspective, and his fans seem to be happily ignoring the parts which blatantly show this to be a rape scene, the chapter states that he was ignoring her protests. I see people heralding the original scene as one of mutual consent, but it was certainly not.

It was a rape scene.Jaime raped Cersei, because he is a bad person, and was horny. The show scene was not out of character, it doesn’t ruin Jaime’s character, it just shows that he is a bad person, because he is.

This doesn’t ruin Cersei either, as if the show follows the course of the books, this is their last sexual encounter for the foreseeable future, and Cersei will grow cold to him, and reject him later, probably largely spurned by him raping her.

However, I think it is important to note that while the show’s portrayal was accurate, suitably unromanticized, and clear in the portrayal of the events as rape, I am not okay with the crew’s statements about it, Coster-Waldeau suggesting that it was not rape.

it’s funny that you find the rape scene in game of thrones triggering considering that

  1. people are murdered cruelly all the time
  2. people are tortured cruelly all the time
  3. i honestly do not understand what you expect in a show that had a rape scene in it’s second episode

why do people insist on complaining about the violence of the show 

getzug said: rape in general is triggering though??? especially when in the books it was consensual, so there was no reason to make it rape at all??? just because something is ‘expected’ from the show doesn’t make it okay.

of fucking course rape is triggering and that’s exactly my point: why on earth would you watch a show that involves it regularly if it triggers you??

also, in the books it was not consensual. if anything, the start of both the scenes were extremely on point, only that cersei “consented” in the end (on which she said no in the books as well and you only get to see it in jaime’s pov)

and i never said it was okay, i’m just baffled at how people are acting like it’s surprising

adding more:

"There was no tenderness in the kiss he returned to her, only hunger. Her mouth opened from his tongue. ‘No…not here. The septons…’ ‘The Others can take the septons.’…She pounded on his chest with feeble fists, muttering about the risk, the danger, about her father, about the septons, about the wrath of the gods. He never heard her.”

this is from the actual scene in the books it’s not consensual at all
