fucking privileged women who’ve succeeded in science fields bragging about their privilege on facebook while refusing to try and change their shitty toxic attitudes

"oh i know it’s awful but I identify as an equalist! I know women are underrepresented in science but I just don’t care about gender~~~ just can’t make myself care about something i don’t feel is important!!!"

okay there’s a hero in dota2 who’s a little goblin in this massive saw suit that chops down trees - Rizzrack the Timbersaw - and his fucking backstory is that living trees destroyed his home town and murdered everyone he knew so he built the suit to keep him safe and get revenge and he’s LITERALLY ALWAYS TERRIFIED ABOUT TREES ALL THE TIME, LIKE WHEN YOU MOVE HE’LL GO “but what if they get me!”

what really scares me is that im average im not really good at anything or really beautiful im going to live an average life with an average job an average income and die an average death with an average funeral and nobody is going to remember me

… Jesus.

i don’t care if i’m famous as fuck or an anonymous nobody when I die, I’m still the same amount of scared of it (which is “hella”), join me in this

I legitimately do not understand fear of death. I was talking to a friend who just won’t shut up about how afraid of death she is, and I just don’t get it. The only thing I’m afraid of is living long enough to be bored. I’d be happy to die sooner than later, the idea of having to stick around for another 60+ years and find ways to fill all that huge amount of time. Like, I haven’t really enjoyed the last 21, another 60? That terrifies me.

i’d kill to drop my crushing fear of death for five minutes. i am fucking baffled that anyone could be that scared of being bored, I’d take it over terrified any day of the week. it’s so much easier to fix boredom than to fix a bone-deep terror of the only unavoidable thing in existence. i mean there are books, dude. there are so many books.

some brilliant post I read earlier pointed out that making consent scenes seem morally ambiguous can lead to people Not Getting It. that having it an obvious full-on rape scene gets the true undertone of the situation out more clearly.

if I could trust that that’s what they’re doing - that they’re making sure people get that consent is important - that’d be a different issue. but given how the creators have talked about it (including saying that they don’t see the scene from the show as rape like wtf???) it’s pretty transparent that it’s just another way of them going “look how dark and edgy we are! there’ll be an orgy scene later! woo!” 

and besides, it fucks over both characters, and I doubt it’ll be handled well. it’s not outright rape in the book and as such doesn’t change a lot between them (yes, it’s still absolutely a wrong act, but in the broader context of Cersei’s life [remember Robert?] this is a pretty damn respectful sexual encounter.) but this absolutely should and will change their relationship - change things for Jaime, change things for Cersei. it’s an extremely serious fucking thing and the fact that it isn’t that way in the book (and I severely doubt the show will bother to add in proper content dealing with it) indicates to me that nothing will be made of it and it will be this weird aberrant event that is completely forgotten, which is an absolutely unacceptable way to treat rape. 

really they should have just removed the coerced consent from the book, had the whole scene be truly consensual, if they were actually worried about people misinterpreting the coerced consent as it was in the books (which is a nice theory but I profoundly doubt was their actual motivation.) skipping over that subtle aspect of Jaime’s character (which is a pretty common aspect of his socialization as a man in a world where women are treated as they are and a bit of a problem to make a special point of pointing out for This Particular Character and nobody else) would do far less damage than putting in this huge, horrible event and then completely failing to handle it properly (as I’m almost certain will happen - of course I’ll be extremely happy to be proven wrong by later episodes.)

i have so many fucking feelings about this show and 90% of them are “the writers are shit”. GRRM did this really careful explanation of how things are different in the show so some scenes need to be different, but he did point out that he wasn’t consulted at all about this change and I think that is extremely interesting too.

yeah having reread, the consent in the book is unclear / coerced / late and very definitely not proper consent, and I should have clarified that in my post. HOWEVER: there is still a fucking mile between that scene and what they turned it into in the show (they did similar with Dany’s scene with Drogo, which is obviously also coerced and not truly consensual in the books, but at least she doesn’t spend the scene crying as he forces himself on her jesus christ.) And the creators have basically said they don’t see it as rape at all, which is the worst part. 

Game of Thrones does not need more sexual violence. There’s plenty already in the books, as is clear here.

But what I get is a boredom that can’t be fixed with anything. Not books, not hobbies, not movies or tv or talking or really anything. Just this feeling that my life is stretched before me and all it is is a grey nothingness that I am incapable of escaping except via death. I just don’t see death as big a threat, I’d kind of be a massive hypocrite if I did. I like the idea of being dead and not really knowing anything (because I don’t really believe in an afterlife) than alive and pointless and knowing it. 

i get the grey nothingness feeling occasionally but i’m still afraid of death ah ha haaaaaaaaaa brains are stupid

was just part of a conversation about rape (in this example, gratuitous portrayals of such in adaptations from a source work in which the sex scene was consensual) 

is anyone surprised that a dude crashed in to say that torture and murder also happen in media, and a lot of people actively pursue horrible things in media (most of them women, apparently!) because they enjoy them, and murder and rape are actually very similar in a lot of ways, and generally contributed absolutely fucking nothing to the discussion except derailment and downplaying of the shitty thing that was done

just me

yeah
