Did y’all forget that Daenarys was getting felt up against her will by her brother and raped in a tent by Khal Drogo every night? I don’t remember all of this outcry then. Is it just because the Lannister scene wasn’t depicted the same way in the books? I dunno, of course it was deplorable, but as it doesn’t trigger me I put it alongside all of the horrible deeds done by horrible people in this show. Ya know, the murder and torture and infanticide and amputations and burning screaming people alive. I think one reason people are so pissed is because they were just starting to like Jaimie after season 3 and now they feel duped into remember he’s a incestuous man who pushed a little boy out of a window and paralyzed him when he was caught boning his sister in a tower.
I don’t think it’s that so much as (at least for me) that they seem to add rape and violence against women where it doesn’t exist in canon when there are totally enough scenes where there is canon rape and violence against women.
With the Dany thing, her brother felt her up in the books too but the whole family line was incestuous (it kept the blood pure). I wasn’t on Tumblr at the time of the 1st season & actually didn’t read the books until after I started watching but the Dany/Drogo thing bothered me too once I realized that it was originally written in the books that Dany took control of their married sex life from the get go.
Like I said, for me it just seems like the directors are getting off on adding rape and sexual violence where none exists when there is more than enough in the source material for them to work off of. Doesn’t help when the writers run their mouths too about how “she gave in at the end” like that made the rape ok.
At least, that’s the way it is for me. Others might have different feelings on the topic.
