And am proud to be able to say years from now, when there are plenty more married couples of all types and shapes and colors and sizes trying to do the right thing with their marriage, that I did the right thing.

I like things, and some of those things are problematic.

Excuse me while I vomit…and then keep watching because I still like the rest of the movie.

Liking problematic things doesn’t make you an asshole.

For example, consider the scene in Game of Thrones where Drogo rapes Dany (which he does not do in the books).

One of my friends feels that it was portrayed like rape fetish porn, sexualising the act and Dany’s pain.

The narratives that we surround ourselves with can subtly, subconsciously influence how we think about ourselves and others.But it can be surprisingly difficult to own up to the problematic things in the media you like, particularly when you feel strongly about it, as many fans do.We need to find a way to enjoy the media we like without hurting other people and marginalised groups.But I feel that the scene focuses on Dany’s pain and tears in a manner that is not fetishising them (though even so the narrative is still totally fucked up because Dany and her rapist then go on to have a good, sexyfuntimes relationship…uh, no, HBO).I don’t agree with my friend’s interpretation but I recognise it as a totally valid reading of the scene.

In movies and books, they don’t show that very much, because it’s boring and gross.
