Made this today. Raise your hand if you think League of Legends-based Facebook relationship statuses would make you kind of chuckle but really make you regard the whole set up as kind of try-hard.
This relationship? I mean if you’re into being sold to a man who’s abusive and rapes you but eventually learns to love you, then yes. This relationship.
“Drogo leads Daenerys off to consummate the marriage. A thirteen-year-old girl who had been abused by her brother for most of her life and had been given no say in the marriage, Daenerys is terrified of her bridegroom and expects to be raped. Despite his fierce reputation, however, Drogo proves to be a surprisingly considerate lover. Although he and Dany share no common language, he establishes that he understood the word “no,” then begins touching her gently. He does not begin to have intercourse with her until Dany expresses her consent and initiates it. This tender wedding night set the tone for their marriage, which becomes a remarkably happy one.”
I haven’t gotten into Game of Thrones, but I hear this is one of the differences from the Television show and Novels that some people got annoyed/mad about.
I haven’t read the books (yet) but even I’m pissed off about that difference.
the show portrayed him as far more savage than he was in the books with the “consummation” of their marriage. drogo is very sweet and gentle with dany and it’s not until she is WET FOR HIM and says YES that he takes her. there was no raping in the books or anything close.
It is REALLY gross to me that they changed a consensual sex scene to a rape scene for the TV version of Game of Thrones because seriously, WHY
I would like to know what possible justification they had for doing that, other than the creepy way that people in the media in general seem to like throwing in needless rape scenes…
I actually had an argument with male acquaintences about the way the scene was portrayed in the show because it disturbed me. I insisted that the way the scene was played in the show was non-consensual and rape.
Both guys in the room got really angry with me and said I was over-reacting and that it was not rape. I was like “She was crying and didn’t want to and he forced her down as she cried. What part did you not understand?” One of them: “The crying doesn’t prove anything.” I had to walk out of the room at that point because I was so mad I could’ve killed them both with my bare hands.
When I finally read the book and realised the producers had taken a consensual sex scene in which Daenerys is the one leading the act itself and made it into a rape scene - I was so angry I could spit. I still am.
It’s because they desire to see us as sexual beings, performing sexual acts but at the same time any woman who is sexual by choice is ‘dirty’ or a ‘slut’…so their solution?
Rape scenes. They get to have their cake and eat it too…we get to be the innocent, good girl who doesn’t want to do these ‘dirty’ and ‘immoral’ things but they still get to see us do them. And as we see here, they will even take scenes where originally we are portrayed as sexual beings by choice, where we are in control of our sexuality and CHOOSING our sex partners and turn that into a rape scene
And anyone who thinks that there isn’t anything wrong with what Drogo did to Dany in the TV version, who thinks that that scene was in any way consensual…that is someone I would be afraid to be around. Because if they think that then that is clearly a man who thinks that consent is the default…that it doesn’t matter if a woman is clearly not wanting something to be done to her, it’s still not non-consensual unless THEY think it’s non-consensual
The TV butchering of their wedding night made me rage so fucking hard. They mutilated it as badly as they did the Dothraki culture. GOING TO RAGE INCOHERENTLY IN THE CORNER FOR A BIT.
nothing has made me want to read the books more than this post brb going to find a book store
Just a reminder that the LGBT community isn’t some magical place where everyone is accepted.
And that there is a particular kind of ignorance grown especially in cis gay men and passed around as an excepted norm as to what beliefs you are expected to have to be accepted/intergrated.
And it’s real fucked up that bi, pan, & non binary people have to be considered indecisive, lost, cost, and/or greedy.
i like how people say ‘competeing’ and ‘being replaced with’. insecure much?
and if you have problems with dating bi people, that means you…have a problem with bi people sorry
It’s gross how they assume that bi people are incapable of being monogamous.
They don’t want to have to “compete AND women”? With an attitude like that you’re at the bottom of the heap anyway.
FYI, you bigoted tryhards: Bisexual and in a monogamous relationship for five years.
TAKE YOUR FAUXCEPTANCE AND SHOVE IT
As a bi person, I’ve had one happy relationship, with another bi person. Maybe bi people are just meant for each other, idk I can’t date straight guys though, I’m just never interested in them?
Penises are for urinating and supplying sperm for reproduction, doesn't mean we urinate and fuck in public .. why should breast feeding be okay? fucking typical one sided feminist
Does your penis provide sustenance for another person? No. Can you show your nipples in public if you want to? Yes. Also, breasts are not genitals or sex organs. Only 13 out of 190 cultures world wide consider them to be sexual or even private parts. Don’t even act like this is a feminist thing. This is a babies-have-the-right-to-eat thing.
And if you are a more private person, there are coverings you can buy that just slip around you neck and drape over baby
Okay but I always see cis men urinating in public.
In other news cis men continue to complain they can’t show their dicks in public while showing their dicks in public and keep making false equivilances to rant against feminists.
This isn’t like Ash and Pikachu. How the fuck does he expect to catch him?
rest in fucking pieces
