Anonymous asked: I love GoT (books and show) but the show is INCREDIBLY problematic. The guys in charge are really bad writers and a lot of the shit they come up with is often pointless and sexist. There have been multiple characters created (mostly female) just to be murdered. The books are much better, if you ever get around to watching the show get ready for tons of mischaracterization and needless violence.

I don’t think I will be watching the show after the uproar after the most recent episode. I don’t understand why [spoilers] they would need to change the book to make a consensual sex scene into rape. And the director etc., from my readings, is showing some very alarming opinions and buying right into rape culture. Apparently this happens a lot, too - the show fabricating rape, fabricating unnecessary sex scenes & taking away any sex scenes where the woman has autonomy or where she’s using sex to manipulate. It doesn’t sound like something I want to watch.

If you look at the context the characters are situated in, and note the fact that the book is written in first person; through someone’s bias; you’d acknowledge that redirecting it in third person would cause complications. The lore of the world is a sexist one; reminiscent of our Middle Ages, to presume the majority of sex in these times were consensual is a bit naive, in conclusion, faulting the art would be very problematic. I understand some problems arise when converting the two mediums of book to film, and some scenes just aren’t going to replicate the context as well for the audience. I look at this scene as a hiccup that I hope they acknowledge and improve on in order to stay true to the books without constricting George RR Martin’s potential artistry for amending his work.

Anonymous asked: What do you think about type-casting of (i'm not sure if this is the right words, correct me if i'm wrong) actors with learning disabilities in shows such as CSI? A lot of the times in shows (especially crime procedurals i've noticed) where there is an actor with a genuine learning disability they seem to be put up as the villain for the majority of the time. Have I just been imagining things to notice or is this a real issue in media like television and film?

I actually haven’t noticed this. I wonder if my followers have?

The artist that created the show created those specifics for the character for a reason. Walter Jr. in Breaking Bad added to the vulnerable theme surrounding the family as they were under threat of money loss, and then under threat from an assortment of dangerous men, not excluding Heisenberg himself.

In some cases, it’s possible that the actor is exploited due to an artist that doesn’t value their Humanity, in these cases it’d be a good decision for these actors to have reliable and caring agents if their mentality is of one that finds it too hard to comprehend the different types of people in society.

Ending on a positive notion, it gives these people a specific niche in artistry/acting that only a minority can fulfill to the same respect. This is good as many average low-requirement jobs demand attributes that those with a lower-fuctioning mentality are unable to express, such as the fact that those on an acting set know and understand the actor’s situation, but those that serve customers at supermarkets will be situated in the context of a job that could be done much quicker; and some customers will no-doubt express this.

A dream I had this morning.

I wrote this as soon as I woke up. It’s weird, I know. I’m also not going to bother clarifying names, etc, you might not know of.

I was working, making a lot of toast and was annoyed by the amount. A woman working there opened her bag which had tea bags inside. There were hair on the toast tray.

I was walking past CBHS and was looking at Facebook on my phone, I read that Emma Blackery was in Norfolk visiting Craig Schweirz. I turned a corner and bumped into her. We talked about Craig and what she was doing in these areas but she had a broken voice. After a while it got better but she was annoyed that I had nervously stepped back due to her finding it hard to communicate.

We made our way to a shop that sells slabs and my dad appeared. We separates and went shopping and talks about PCs and ‘real men’ were heard amongst shoppers.

At the register my dad paid for stuff and so did Emma, I peeked a look to see if she saw that I was also at the register; we both went to each over’s registers to find the other without bumping into them on the way; the registers were very close.

Jimmy and John appeared and both took no part in talking to Emma, that is, until she responded about her story when I honestly said I had only been watching her videos for about half a year. She responds slightly annoyed that I hadn’t looked up her story but then goes on to tell her ancestry of Russia and Communism, John is pleased.

A group of taller men came into the shop that had then been transformed into a large mess hall. One of them remarked on John’s moustache, of which he shaved to an ugly appearance perhaps last dream (?). They fight together, liked the also did previously at some point (?), but the fighter was Jimmy this time instead of John.

At the mess hall tables, four men are talking. One of which uses a strange practical mechanism to respond vocally, they all talk about the state of the economy, but they are also talking within the context of a fantasy structure, if which the inept man ascribes a different currency.

LOOK GUYS HER COMIC HAS 1000+ NOTES :D ITS SO GOOD.

(via zebraboxdinosaur)

So their ‘Cards Against Humanity’ episode was cut, so let’s reminisce when the guys weren’t easily effected by PC groups on Tumblr.

I very recently just “got” Photoshop.
So I’ve been messing around with it today and made this not bad for a a first day’s word me thinks.
