Thank god for the A.V. Club, the only media outlet that has outright called bullshit on this so far.
And another really important quote:
Rape is a tricky thing to use as character development, for either the victim or the rapist; doing it twice raises a lot of red flags. It assumes that rape between characters doesn’t fundamentally change the rest of their story—and it assumes that the difference between consent and rape is, to use the parlance, a “blurred line.”
WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT

Generally when I feel like that I don’t go cause I’ll be cranky and useless the whole time anyway.
that’s what i was going to do, but turns out there are more people than i expected at the lower-stress event which negates its lack-of-stress, so i’m going to go to the larger one and just—show up right before it starts and leave right after. (in protest i am going to wear very minimal makeup—just mascara and bb cream and highlighter and lipstick.)
i’m supposed to hang out with my friends tonight for game of thrones night but i’m kind of…not feeling going out? but also i can’t entirely tell, and i don’t like feeling disoriented in terms of what i’d like to do. the idea of socializing with 30 people feels weirdly tiring to me right now, and i can’t have any of the snacks because of passover, and it would be easier and less effort to watch with my boyfriend and his family. but i didn’t go to wondercon this weekend and haven’t seen anyone since last week and i really don’t know what i want to do and i wish i did.
my mouth is horrifying today ugh
