Welcome To The Bitchery

An opinion about the GoT thing from someone who has never read the books or seen the show

Why do they always talk about "raping and pillaging?" I mean, are those things equal at all? Isn't "pillaging" just kind of medieval littering?

ETA: apparently "pillaging" means stealing, which makes sense, but I still think scenes of peeople stealing stuff are probably less troubling than the other thing.

ETA2: This came about because someone on the thread about the "censorship" of the transphobic video on HuffPo said that "GoT features scenes of rape and pillaging" and I thought "nobody cares about pillaging."
