Actually, I want to talk about the comments on the mainpage article. Because some of them...... wow. I just...... wow.

And I'm not even talking about the trolls. I'm talking about people who seem to be in earnest (and it's important to be Earnest). This one is my favorite:

Doesn't anyone remember that Cersei also played the same oh no we can't/shouldn't no dont/yes do that game wayyyy back when they were caught by Bran? She even slapped him then and still wanted/encouraged it. I think it's part of their fucked up game for her to pretend to deny Jamie and yet encourage him. Cercei is not the kind of woman to allow her brother to full out rape her. She may not have wanted it there and then but that's not to say that she's not above giving it up to him (under false protest) to get what she wanted.

Let me just pull out the sentence that made my eyes pop, shall I?

Cercei is not the kind of woman to allow her brother to full out rape her.

Yes, you DID read that right.

Cercei is not the kind of woman to allow her brother to full out rape her.

So....... excuse me, what? What "kind of woman" is Cersei that she can't get raped? A twin? Blonde? Selfish? Power-hungry? Manipulative? What? My guess is the poster means "strong." Because we may not like Cersei, but there's no denying she's a strong woman. And does that mean, for this poster, strong women don't allow themselves to be raped?

This is the mindset that allows victim blaming. If the victim had just been a stronger woman, she wouldn't have allowed herself to be raped.


What do you think, Arya?
