stradivaria replied to your post “My two cents on the rape scene in the last episode of Game of Thrones”
La gente no se queja de ~hayan violado a Cersei~, sino de que se han cargado la evolución del personaje de Jaime y han echado por tierra la supuesta fortaleza de Cersei.
Hay gente quejándose por varios motivos diferentes: unos por lo que dices tú de cargarse la evolución de Jaime, otros porque la escena no tiene nada que ver con lo que pasa en el libro, otros porque el director o el guionista sigue empeñado en decir que es obvio que en la escena había consentimiento por parte de Cersei cuando es claro que no lo hay, gente que cree que era de mal gusto, et cétera.
Yo me refería a la gente que dice que la escena les causa episodios post-traumáticos (o gente que simplemente dice hablar en nombre de estas personas) y que es “una falta de respeto para estos espectadores y que no debería haber nada de esto en la serie” (en ninguna serie, según ellos). Mi punto es que si ver esto les causa tener uno de estos episodios post-traumáticos, entonces no deberían ver la serie, porque hay violencia de este tipo en abundancia desde sus inicios y no es bueno para ellos ni su propio bienestar.
En mi opinión, si algo te causa malestar o, peor, te hace tener un EPT lo mejor es evitarlo como la peste.
I have a question:
Michelle has been a judge for five seasons now.
How come she does not understand the concept drag queen yet? Cause she keeps telling the queens they “hide behind a character”.
Love. THEY’RE DRAG QUEENS. They put on a costume and make up and entertain you by creating a character. It’s called acting. If you want to know who’s behind the make up, do like Ru and go to the workroom.
why did I imagine drag queens doing a 100 meter sprint
That’s it. That’s the show.
The fact that Darienne is still in the race is a really bad joke.
Book Jaime is better than the show Jaime.
This was consensual. The scene on TV wasn’t. Case closed.
Was it so difficult to change the kicking and “no” and “stops” for kisses and “hurry” and “yes”? Really? I understand adaptations must be different from the source somehow, but was this change really necessary? Really?
First things first: that scene was consensual in the book, but I don’t care what the screenwriter or the director or whoever-said-it says, that scene in the TV show was rape. No consent there whatsoever. It doesn’t matter how many times you say it was consensual, it’s really, REALLY difficult to believe it is when one of the characters keeps kicking and saying “no” and “stop”. If they think that’s consent, we have a problem.
But let me tell you something else about people saying it was disrespectful for rape victims watching at home: this is Game of Thrones. If you actually think it was a safe-place show, you are watching the wrong show. For God’s sake, the season started with a girl being hunted by Ramsey and torn to pieces by dogs. In this same episode, a child saw how a group of cannibals killed his parents and the whole village and was forced to look at the corpses as he was told his parents were going to be eaten. Last series we had the Red Wedding, where they very graphically killed a bunch of people, including a pregnant woman who was STABBED IN THE BELLY. THIS IS NOT A SAFE-PLACE SHOW!
It’s not like we’re talking about a softer show where they suddenly and out of nowhere have a rape scene. I could understand it if we were talking about Downton Abbey’s rape scene last series (or was it the one before?) because it was not expected.
But this is Game of Thrones, a show where cruel things like murder and rape happen all the time. Seriously, if you get triggered by rape, how did you make it so far into the show? Cause this is not the first series, it’s the fourth. There’s been rape and murder before and it’s going to get worse from here. If you get triggered by this, I recommend you to stop watching for your own good.
I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.
This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.
Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.
My dad actually almost got kicked out of a mall once for changing my brother in the womens room of a mall. The only reason they didn’t call the cops on him was because the ladies in the room supported him.
