<em>Game of Thrones</em> Stumbles Into Rape


Let me sum up. These are only things that can be said by someone who has never been raped, or is themselves a rapist.  A non-consent never becomes consent.

In either case, and as with everything, an even marginally thinking human should know to shut the fuck up about topics they know goddamn nothing about. Which I realize is foreign territory for most white men.

I’ll be waiting for the next book, because I’m done with the show.

I haven’t read the books yet, but I refused to watch the show when my husband had me watch the first episode and the whole TV show STARTS with rape. I was out then. So awful.

One of my goals for this year has actually become mandatory for my career
path, so that means the job will pay for the certification!

This is making me chairdance.

karibikes said: yeah…i feel you. our ac isn’t working at school in my classroom either…

Eh, I actually avoid AC, but we have a Tempur Pedic mattress, so it gets hot as hell when we sleep. Plus, my husband needs it cool to sleep, so we run the air at night.

They won’t turn the AC on at work until about June, at which point it will regularly be over 90 in our offices. That’s ok-ish. I just can’t sleep when I’m soaking the sheets. That is actually a bit much for me.

Our AC died sometime yesterday. I thought I was sick this morning because I was so hot. It’s for real not working, so pray for me to not die tonight. Kthx

Forgot to tell you guys about the car behind me at the DQ drive thru the other day (reese’s blizzard) that housed a cat on the dash.

So, the next time you think you’re a crazy cat lady and that this has gone too far, think of this woman. And feel better. You’re doing alright.

Oh, is this not a thing? George destroyed a carrier and would just ride shotgun, and Ichabod feels better out of the carrier after the vet.
