Please don’t hark on Sansa here. People have used these early scenes out of context to argue that Sansa is a bully towards little sister, but Sansa is in the right here, probably covering for Arya. Arya just called out for one of their guests really rudely by an abelist nickname. If anything, she’s saving Arya from making further rude (and downright abelist) queries that would get her in trouble.
For those who think I’m reaching, this mirrors another scene from Book 1 that is also misinterpreted to view Sansa as Arya’s tormentor when actually Sansa is using her natural gift for diplomacy to save her sister from the consequences of her own uncouthness (I’m not barking on Arya either. She has a child’s filter which she learns to curb as the series goes on).
IF YOU THINK YOU CAN JUST MESSAGE ME WHENEVER YOU WANT, you can. I’d love to talk to you.
Because our lives are not defined by romance and sex and we deserve better and more diverse stories than that.
"If straight people don’t get to gawk over your sex lives then what’s the point of you existing?"
I’m both laughing and crying that anyone even asked this question without seeing how terrible that is, but also because representation for queer people has failed so relentlessly that it’s bred this idea that unless sex or romance is the topic of the story, queer people don’t need to be apart of it.
emeraldfm replied to your post “What is your policy on reblogging an otherwise well-made Strong Women…”
I would definitely reblog it and call it out. More people should be aware of what they’re putting on those kinds of posts. There are plenty of kick-ass strong female characters that are WoC. There’s no excuse for it.
i just generally don’t reblog them. cause yeah, i wouldn’t want to not acknowledge the whiteness in the tags, but i also don’t want to get in a fight with the creator.
…not to say they SHOULDN’T be called out on it. i am just usually too tired of arguing with racists to deal with it.
I’m just in a bad mood since the Exodus movie (aka The Coolest Egyptians Where White 2k14)
And how white people will go “Exclusion isn’t discrimination! You people can use our schools and water fountains now, so calm down! Not everything has to be about you!?”
and then freak the fuck out when there’s a black Captain America because “You can just leave us out!”
The mental gymnastics white people are doing to do to justify themselves is getting amazing. Sometimes I laugh or else I’d just cry, you know what I mean?
So I think this post was just the pasty, slender, cis straw that broke the camel’s back, lol.
There is only one thing on this earth more powerful than evil, and that’s us.
