i just set my phone down and had to take a few deep breaths.
like i’m just sitting here dumbfounded in what universe would anyone look at Sansa Stark’s plot line and think ‘hmmm yes you know what this needs rape that’s what it needs’
i thought that was all talk about the S2 scene but no? it’s an upcoming scene?
are we ever going to get anything high fantasy (aside from LOTR) that isn’t absolutely destroyed or am i just living in a sad state of delusion
like, i’m very very good about disassociating. This show is not the books and I accepted that a long time ago. & tbh i’m not ‘giving up’ on the show bc of these egregious errors. because there are still a lot of things i care about in the show and i can’t imagine they can screw everything up (though they’re doing a good job of trying for it)
but these are egregious errors that have made me start pulling people fast and hard away from the show when they express interest and telling them to just read the books because as problematic as they can be at least they don’t say ‘oh you know what this needs? more rape.'
it’s frustrating it’s just all so frustrating.
the fact that GrrM is pissed as hell though makes me feel marginally better. only marginally but you know.
Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in the American television series that is based on George RR Martin’s books, says their arrival coincided with her filming a rape scene.
“The producer, Dan Weiss, was sitting between my Mum and Dad, going ‘Oh my God’,” recalls Turner in an interview with Tatler.“But they were, like, ‘It’s fine, she loves this kind of thing.’”
The young actress had, meanwhile, been assured by the director that the scene would be “choreographed like a ballet” and would be “beautiful.”
