Trigger warning for discussion of rape below.

This week’s Game of Thrones was widely critiqued for what many see as an unnecessarily upsetting change from the book series.

After Joffrey, she’s escaped him and you think she’s going to lose her virginity to a guy who’s really sweet and takes care of her and she’s thrown in with a guy who’s a whole lot worse. But I kind of like the fact she doesn’t really know what a psycho he is until that night. She has a sense, but she’s more scared of his father. And then that night everything gets so f–ked up.

Showrunners [David Benioff and Dan Weiss] must have been like, “Okay, let’s do everything we can to make her the most abused, manipulated character!

    Hi Wendy Wright,

    I am glad you have never experienced sexual abuse, but one in five women have. I made the decision to mention there would be discussion of this sensitive topic (and Tori also posted a warning for the screencap gallery) because we know there are many people out there who understandably may not want to be exposed to this material.

    “Fans have a direct experience with the crime than with murder or other really serious violent acts. Often you can tell exactly what the story line was because it’s prompting calls about a certain issue or from a certain group of survivors.” – Scott Berkowitz, president and founder of the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN) The hotline which receives a noticeable increase in calls every time there’s a portrayal of rape on a popular show. Support is available 24/7 through the National Sexual Assault Hotline: 800-656-HOPE

    While this topic may have no effect on you, please take a moment to consider that everyone reacts to things in different ways.

    Kind Regards,
    Hannah
