Anonymous asked: "Woah woah fictional character. Just fictional characters. Calm down they aren't even real. Do you realize how stupid you sound getting all worked up over a fictional character. But congrats you have defended a fictional character who we don't even know if they agree with your defense because we can't ask them because oh yeah THEY AREN'T REAL."
As a rule, when some anon tells you to “calm down”, they’re the one who is pissed off.
But you know, fiction doesn’t exist in a vacuum. These aren’t real people but they reflect very real situations. Why do you think Sansa’s situation is such a hot-button issue? Every day in real life women are subjected to the idea that we should be grateful just to not be raped. Or that if we are, that we caused it somehow, in a million tiny ways. Fiction reflects real life. George RR Martin certainly knows that.
Funny how people are happy to discuss fiction and then when the debate isn’t going their way, suddenly it’s “omg it’s just fiction!”
You may think we look stupid caring about a fictional character, but you’re the one sending anonymous hate to random people on tumblr. So…
Anonymous asked: "lmao at these people phrasing it as "Sansa should be GRATEFUL that things weren't as bad as they possibly could have been" instead of something like "Sansa might feel some relief." Because relief is about her, her feelings, her rights as an individual, and the abuse she's been through. Saying she should be grateful is all about what an abused fourteen year old girl supposedly owes to OTHER people."
