Imagine if Cronus had been inspired by later years Elvis Presley.

When Theon flees his captors the first time in season 3 he’s not just going to get beat up and tortured, oh no, he’s going to get raped too.
I have mixed feelings about the scene but it’s one of those rare moments when man is threatened with rape. Of course, we the viewers have seen him completely emasculated throughout the previous season and this, mocked by his family and soldiers. Losing everything and given over to his captors to do with as they please, tortured white whining and screaming and crying only to flee and be threatened with rape, the cherry on top of the emasculation cake.
Imagine instead if, say, the men who caught Jamie had had their way with him, just as an afterthought, or the jailers had buggered Ned Stark while he was in jail.
It makes me pissed. Sorry for short kind of rant bit I’m going to bed and I’m on my cell.
Critics’ Reactions to the Jaime/Cersei Rape Scene in Episode 4.3 of Game of Thrones
"I wonder, then, if the rape was on some level a misguided attempt to give Cersei even more pathos, a la the convenient backstory rapes that have become depressingly common on prestige TV (and Scandal)…I wonder if TV Thrones‘s writers just have a tendency to change problematic book sex scenes into clear scenes of unconsensual sex.” - Hillary Busis, Entertainment Weekly
“Game of Thrones has a rape problem.” - Kevin Spak, Newser
"In the original depiction, Jaime never says “Why have the Gods made me love a hateful woman?” — a line that the TV show added in, which in context makes Jaime look like an abusive rapist (the gods made me do it!)”- Darren Franich, Entertainment Weekly
Jaime forced himself upon Cersei despite her demands to stop. “It’s not right,” she cried, to which Jaime snarled, “I don’t care.”…we can never unsee that godawful scene. - Leanne Aguilera, E! Online
"If this scene really just is a miscalculation in direction (and potentially the writing of Benioff and Weiss, neither of whom have yet commented on it) and doesn’t get any payoff later in the season, then it truly deserves all the criticism it has been receiving.” - Terri Schwartz, Zap2It
The director who shot the scene and the man who acted in it both believe it wasn’t necessarily nonconsensual sex— an attitude that isn’t totally surprising in a society that’s deeply confused about what constitutes consent, and that doesn’t always recognize sexual violence for what it is. -Tara Culp-Ressler, ThinkProgress
So then Jaime … well … no other way to put this, really. He rapes his sister beside their corpse of their murdered son. This is the same guy who protected Brienne from a similar fate last year. - James Hibberd, Entertainment Weekly
"…the show’s overall treatment of women as disposable objects onto whom physical and emotional violence are relentlessly enacted. Sexual violence is so pervasive on the show that nearly every woman on the show has been raped or threatened with rape. The show, and the books, reveal the disturbing and cavalier facility with which rape becomes a narrative device.Rape is used to punish. Rape is used to make a woman more sympathetic or to explicate their anger or other unlikable qualities. Rape is used to put women in their place.” -Roxane Gay, Salon
"The entire scene in the sept was an exercise in Cersei’s belittlement. She watched her father degrade and dishonor (albeit truthfully) her firstborn’s legacy and then manipulate her youngest into serving as his marionette. Then, on the floor next to the body of her dead son, the only man she’s ever taken into her confidence abused that trust in the most vile way imaginable.” - Hillary Kelly, The New Republic
"A giggling dead body would have at least taken our attention away from, you know, the raping." - Johnny Brayson, wetpaint
"Whether the show meant it to come across that way or not, what we saw was a rape.” - Erik Kain, Forbes
"The scene, which has Cersei pleading “stop it” repeatedly and struggling against Jaime, appears far from consensual." - Margaret Wappler, Los Angeles Times
In the show there’s no other way to interpret it as unambiguous rape. Jaimie isn’t loving when he tries to have sex with her in the show, he’s shown as being angry and hateful, cursing her for being a wicked woman. There’s no point in the scene on the show that we can see Cersei consent, which makes the whole scene significantly different from the book. Some readers have pointed out that the rape in the show is damaging for Cersei’s character arc since she had to endure the marriage to Robert Baratheon in which he essentially engaged in marital rape, Her consensual sex was always with Jaimie who made her feel safe. Jaimie raping her in the show completely destroys their relationship and destroys the trust she has in Jaimie leaving her without anyone. - AJ, the Digital Times
The rewritten scene also takes away all of Cersei’s agency. In the original text, Cersei chooses to have sex with Jaime, grotesque as it and the setting may be — because she wants to, or because she uses sex to manipulate, it doesn’t matter. Cersei has power and control. The scene in the show deprives her of all of that. - Amelia McDonell-Parry, The Frisky
His response is not to stop loving her, not to stop believing that he is victim to the gods. Instead, Jaime rapes his sister, passing that sense of unendurable pain on to her. He must know that this is the worst possible way that he could hurt her. Jaime knew that Robert raped Cersei, and in the novels, he wanted to kill Robert for it. Not only does raping Cersei remind his sister of her repeated, humiliating violation, Jaime is poisoning their own relationship, the thing that had been Cersei’s antidote to the miseries of her marriage. It is an exceptionally cruel thing for Jaime to do. - Alyssa Rosenberg, Washington Post.
It’s hard to shake the idea that Game Of Thrones, the show, doesn’t see a problem with pushing a scene from complicated, consensual sex to outright rape. It would be easier to accept that idea if it were clear what the show was trying to do with those changes. - Sonia Saraiya, AV Club
If Graves intended to depict consensual sex in the end, he completely failed. This wasn’t even one of those terribly clichéd scenes where a man starts raping a woman only to find that she comes around to thinking it’s hot. Cersei is still kicking and protesting when the camera cuts away. It’s as straightforward a rape scene as you’ll get on TV, unless you buy the ridiculous myth that a woman can’t be raped if she’s consented to sex with a man before. - Amanda Marcotte, Slate
This isn’t the first rape scene in Game of Thrones—far from it. And there’s been controversy over the show’s use of rape before. But what makes this scene the most upsetting one yet is that the director didn’t realize he was filming a rape scene…Whether or not the creators intended this to be a rape scene is irrelevant; they made one anyway. And worse, they made one that encourages the most dangerous thinking about rape imaginable. - Laura Hudson, Wired
"How will victims of sexual assault be affected when a director and actor in one of television’s most popular shows questions whether no really means no?" - Eliana Dockterman, Time Magazine
I’ll go ahead and say it: Jaime Lannister has become a rape cliché. He’s the boss, like every other on-screen rapist we’ve ever seen. - Hayley Krischer, Salon
"I’m not opposed to shows depicting sexual violence, but rape-as-prop is always distressing…Rape and abuse have consequences for the victims who carry those traumas with them. While I don’t know exactly how the show will depict the aftermath of Jamie raping Cersei, GoT does not have a strong track record of acknowledging or exploring the lingering effects of surviving sexual assault." - Margarey Lyons, Vulture/New York Magazine
"I can’t think of any comparable defense for the rape scene in "Breaker of Chains," which feels like a naked and ill-conceived attempt to push Game of Thrones into even darker territory. …I’m concerned that Game of Thrones has made a mistake it can’t take back — and one that sets a troubling precedent for the show’s future.” - Scott Meslow, The Week
The Game of Thrones Rape Scene Was Unnecessary and Despicable….The fact that showrunners might be asking us to overlook this for the sake of character development is downright insulting and says a lot about how we treat victims, especially the ones who come off as unlikable. - Madeleine Davies, Jezebel.com
Is “Game of Thrones” Obsessed With Sexual Assault?…Frankly, there are some weeks when “Game of Thrones” doesn’t seem worth the effort. - Sam Adams, IndieWire
Wow uh wow. Haven’t seen this yet but this goes completely against the books and like the reviewers said, it’s incredibly damaging to one of GOTs strongest female characters. It’s almost equally damaging to Jamie who’s supposed to be changing deeply at this part… And NOT into a rapist. Ugh.
I am so sick and tired of rape being used as a plot device against women and to emasculate men. It is literally saying that women aren’t worthy of or capable of enduring the usual physical torture men go through and makes it so that to fully show how exposed, vulnerable and weak a man is he’ll be threatened by that which is the terror of women. He is not a man. It is degrading to women beyond imagining.
Rape is and will always be a terrible violation of a person, but in a world and setting rife with strong women, both warriors and nobles, falling back on a tired cliche threat is beneath them.
So in essence I am not trying to say that rape is not a horrible terrible thing (it is), but when it comes to storytelling using rape as a plot device it is insulting to the character and sexist.

Like you know what happens if you meet someone with crowdcontrol attacks right?
Lucky for you I was playing the Shaman starter deck. Piece of shit deck.
A rare fan-art because ITS JUST TOO adorable I couldn’t resist!!!
If you haven’t seen Arashi No Yoru Ni, its really cute and you should!!!
I was going to make one of those comic things you know, that expresses a personal opinion about a thing but I just don’t have the energy. It’s about feminism and role play in the Guild Wars 2 community. In before you say but my experience wasn’t like that ,…
I agree, I have the same problem. I don’t RP as much as I’d like but I’ve started using my warrior and elementalist mainly in WvW a bit more, and since they are Female Norn I have noticed that people even my own group of roamers don’t take directions all that seriously. Yet on my Male Sylvari Guardian they practically follow me without question.
I’ve had a very bizarre encounter in Queensdale some weeks back where a couple of new players were hovering over my Guardian when they asked in chat if ‘Plant boobies were the same as human boobies.’ (Their exact words). They couldn’t tell that my character was male which I have to admit - now that I think about it - was quite a compliment considering Sylvari are supposed to be gender neutral. I pretended to be AFK for a couple of minutes, letting them take a long look to see if it would dawn on them as they ‘attempted’ to grind themselves on Iio’s leg. It was only when I started taking off bits of his armour that they recoiled in absolute horror that he was male. One of them called me every derogative name he could think of while the other apologised and walked away. Two very different attitudes to their realisation but ultimately if I had been a Female I bet they wouldn’t have stopped. It’s quite sad actually.
I’m with the OP when they say they feel slightly uncomfortable playing female characters. It’s a shame because I’ve seen some fantastic badass and beautiful female characters from all races as much as I’ve seen from males.
This… is one of the reasons why I dropped WoW all those years ago (and never looked back, tho I have no idea if that community improved or not?). This all is what happened to me way back then, to a T; from being ridiculed, shamed, target of unwanted approaches, my merit never being acknowledged… I just deleted my female character and never made another again for years, across all games I ever played. I have been making practically only male characters since, and I told my L2 guild I was male when they asked at the time, because I just… wanted to be treated equally.
In this regard though, I’ve had mostly pleasant experiences in GW2. Yet the old scars remain: I still don’t feel comfortable rping a female ingame, and not for lack of trying. It’s a constant back and forth of “Am I dressed okay? Am I too bossy? Too gentle? Too fickle? Am I keeping up okay?” that’s hardly ever there when I rp/play male toons.
tl;dr - you’re not alone on this OP.
:( it’s pretty disgusting how people can act against women or implied women in these games.
