1. "So the question is not, exactly, “Why change the books?” Because the answer is clear: Many, many details must be changed, just to make the transition from book series to televised series work. The question is, instead: “Why change this?” Why make a scene from the book that depicts consensual sex into one in the show that depicts rape?"

    Thank god for the A.V. Club, the only media outlet that has outright called bullshit on this so far.

    And another really important quote:

    Rape is a tricky thing to use as character development, for either the victim or the rapist; doing it twice raises a lot of red flags. It assumes that rape between characters doesn’t fundamentally change the rest of their story—and it assumes that the difference between consent and rape is, to use the parlance, a “blurred line.”

    Salt Lake City and Utah followers! This concert is on Friday the 18th, and all the proceeds go to the Rape Recovery Center. Purchasing a ticket to this show will help survivors of sexual violence receive the support they need to cope with the world and navigate a justice system that is already stacked against them. And thank you to all the sponsors (seen at the bottom) who have helped put this together.

    So I checked the schedule and discovered that even if you to Fan Xperience and stay for the ENTIRE DAY, you will have over three hours to get to our show and catch the last few bands. We’re scheduled until 1130, and one of the people who actually has to work tomorrow is me. So no excuses! :D

    Cosplays will be more than welcome at the show! #judgmentfreezone

    Reblogging again to boost the signal because rape culture is bad, and this is my insignificant attempt to make the world—if not better—significantly more navigable for survivors of sexual violence.

    Come take a stand against sexual violence, Salt Lake!

    GUUUUYS! This is an awesome show and an awesome cause. If you’re in Utah you should probably go.

    In fact, if you’re cosplaying for Fan X, you should totally come in costume to the concert! It will awesome!!!!
