Let’s face it, if you’re gonna take a lint roller to your pants, you might as well do it in the front row of a Raptors game. Right, Drake?

Don’t forget that boy told you. Roll. That. Lint off your trousers.

These are the results.

    recoveringhipster replied to your post: Why the fuck do the Game of Thrones du…

    They aren’t, though. If you want to blame someone, blame GRRM. Things are slightly more ambiguous in the books, but they’re all in there…

    I hadn’t even thought about the unreliable narrator aspect of the Jaime…

    Major Game of Thrones Spoilers below.

    The upcoming Sansa rape scene that everyone’s talking about  is probably going to be when Marillion the singer tries to rape her and she’s rescued by Lothor Brune (ASOS, Chapter 68). So, that’s that, for what it’s worth.

    As far as Dany/Drogo goes… Dany was a 14 year old girl who was literally sold to Drogo. She breaks down into tears on her wedding night when she first looks him in the eyes and he touches her (AGOT, Chapter 11). So, unless we’re going to make a distinction between different kinds of rape (something which Tumblr has ridiculed Republican politicians for doing), then I think we better treat it as seriously as we do the other rapes in the series. The fact that Drogo ended up being a good husband doesn’t really change Dany’s ability to consent to that first encounter.

    So yeah, while it is true that George R. R. Martin writes some great, complex, powerful female characters, he also has a tendency to use rape (or the threat of rape) repeatedly as a plot device throughout the series. He’s not a perfect writer… The books are problematic when it comes to violence against women, so it’s no surprise that the show would be problematic as well.

    D+D aren’t throwing in more rape to titillate or to make things more edgy. They’re simply adapting the book to a visual medium. If that’s something that people find triggering or just something they don’t want to have to see, then maybe they need to stop watching. I just don’t understand assigning all the blame to the adaptors, and none towards the actual author.

  7. This headline is, sadly, pretty misleading. There aren’t a whole lot of secret sex parties in PGH (at least that I’m aware of), but there is a thriving house/techno scene that the article itself does a pretty good job of capturing.

    Sometimes, when I get stressed and just don’t want to have to deal with the real world anymore, I have this fantasy of opening up a little Italian grocery where I can just hang around and drink wine and play scopa all day.
