There is nothing i would like better than just forget everything that happened Sunday night, but then you have fucking pieces of actual human garbage like Game Of Thrones Director Alex Graves, and I feel like I owe it to my own intelligence to spit in their face. I mean, Alex Graves, do you see this? You shot it. You were directing. You were there. Don’t tell me Cersei "wrapping her legs around him" makes it consensual, because it is not enough. Don’t tell me Cersei "kissing him aplenty" makes it consensual, because it is not enough. Don’t tell me Cersei holding on to the table to “get some grounding” makes it consensual, because it is not fucking enough.
Do you see Cersei, Alex Graves? You shot it. This is what you are defending. You fucking shot it.
Male privilege is “I have a boyfriend” being the only thing that can actually stop someone from hitting on you because they respect another man more than they respect your rejection/lack of interest.
The Sociological Cinema
There was actually research that was done that found that women who used an “I have a boyfriend/husband” excuse to reject unwanted sexual attention and harassment by their bosses were more likely to be left alone than those who used any other excuse (including “I’m not interested”)
Because men respect another man’s property (and that’s how they see us) than a woman’s autonomy.
