I’m sick of reading all kinds of excuses about the rape scene of GOT (Jaime and Cersei). I’m really sick of it.
Even one friend from Chile told me that the people who think that this scene contains rape don’t understand anything because she has read the books and this scene is full of interpretations, WTF??? There are no interpretations, it’s rape for God’s sake! In the books there is no rape, it’s consensual sex. It’s very clear
She told me that on the facebook from Latin America of GOT there aren’t negative comments about that scene and it’s because the fans of Latin American of GOT are real fans of the saga (books and show). WTF again….(the very people who think Sookie is a slut and she deserves to be murdered by Bill)
I’m sick of the rape culture. In the last episode they gave a wrong teaching “when a woman says NO she is really saying YES”. I don’t understand how some people are cool with that
Sorry but I’m very pissed off
Lol, being from Latin America, I’m a little insulted by your friend’s claim. As far as no Latin American fans criticizing that scene, I don’t know anything about that. I’m not on Facebook and I wasn’t even aware we had our own FB page for that show. I don’t really talk to any fans down here and don’t go to any forums, so as far as my country goes I don’t know what has been the general reaction.
But considering my people are kind of desensitized to several forms of social injustice, considering latinos are steeped in macho bullshit, that wouldn’t surprise me, sadly, that the general, broad perception could be “eh, rough sex, move on”.
But I sure as hell hope it ain’t true.
I’m a little insulted too ngl. No one I’ve talked to on facebook or at work saw that scene as consensual sex. I don’t really follow FB pages of TV series because the comments there are the worst. But I got curious and went to the HBO Game of Thrones FB page LAT, BR and the Official one. So, what I could gather from those pages was that there’s no big discussion going on about the rape scene on the GOT facebook pages LAT and BR. I read a few comments here and there of people saying Cersei was raped by her brother, but all they really care about is Tyrion. On the Official page, however, some think it was consensual, some say it was rape and others say Cersei deserved it.
