Three cheers for femslash Feb! The perfect excuse to draw some otps <3
I don’t understand how book readers are saying this scene was 100% consensual or loving in the books, because it really wasn’t.
Things that point to the scene being rape:
Cersei refuses Jaime initially.
He ignores her and kisses her so she can’t really speak.
She is physically resisting him.
He never heard her.
I repeat: He never heard her. Cersei is protesting verbally, giving Jaime reasons why she does not want to have sex with him at that time in that place and He never heard her.
Does that sound like enthusiastic consent to y’all, cause it sure as hell doesn’t to me.
Not to mention this scene feeds into the whole “Ignore her if she says no because she’ll be totally into it once you slip her the D” bullshit, which, imo at least, is actually sending a more fucked up message than the message sent by depicting the scene as pretty unambiguous rape—at least from the viewer’s perspective. I’d seriously doubt that Jaime considered it “real” rape, just like many people IRL don’t consider it rape if it’s with someone they’ve previously had consensual sex with. Not saying it’s right, just saying I don’t think Jaime meant to hurt Cersei, but he did, because their relationship is ultimately destructive and unhealthy and I really don’t know how book readers or show watchers could read it as anything but.
Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
This is why this is important.
Being a witch is not the highest paid job in the world.
