Literally zero of you have seen Come Drink With Me, have you. it’s a kung fu movie about a girl who is so awesome at kung fu that an entire gang of bandits has to get their evil monk master to come protect them from her. Her name is Golden Swallow. It’s a bird reference, not a blowjob reference, Jesus. Check it out, maybe.
Tumblr, I have deduced that you have very strong feelings about the Game of Thrones. Talk amongst yourselves. If one of you brings me beer or whiskey, I will talk to you about Game of Thrones all goddamn night.
morganmcjiggleson asked: I'm not entirely sure I agree with the past few observations about the Game of Thrones show. If you don't like fantasy or political intrigue then don't waste your time, but I don't see how one can call the books feminist literature and then claim the show is awful to it's female characters. There's just as much rape (sometimes of minors) in the books as there is in the show, so I would imagine both are equally triggering.
Ok, so fictional (and real, also, bleh) accounts of rape just make me want to throw up and they ruin my whole day. I’m not saying that if you’ve been assaulted I don’t want to hear about it if you need someone to talk to, but if you’re just putting it in your movie then I’d rather watch Wreck It Ralph again.
bydemytime asked: Skip the Game of Butts books and the show and watch some Venture Brothers.
That sounds like a really good idea. I’ve seen a couple episodes of that show. I strongly identify with Brock or whoever the big blond murder dude is.
sailortyria asked: Game of Thrones has a TON of powerful female characters. There is one who (right now in the show) is leading an army across lands and conquering cities and peoples as she goes. There are MANY women who are playing The Game skillfully with their wits, not their bodies. There is one girl who is learning to be ruthless killer with her sword and brain. Yes there is violence against women but there is violence against men too.
I like kung fu movies… Have ANY of you seen Come Drink With Me?
Guys, I’m not going to watch Game of Thrones. The last show I watched that isn’t a cartoon was Lost, Episode 1. I regret nothing.
drakeisi asked: The first book of the series that Game of Thrones is based on actually has very little fantasy. If you skip the prologue it mostly reads like historical fiction in countries that don't exist. By the time the fantasy pops up, you're completely engrossed by the human drama. It's the book I give people who say they don't like Fantasy to make them see that not all Fantasy has to lean on magic and elves and silly stuff like that.
I actually like magic and elves. I don’t like helms and keeps and kings and armies. That shit is BORING to me. Thus: Legend of Zelda. Like, seriously, it’s one of my favorite stories. I read the wiki.
marsjunkiegirl asked: even though GoT is problematic, I think it's worth watching because of the shear number of well-developed and varied female characters, which is extremely rare in tv. Also it's not so much fantasy as it is historical.
I actually don’t really like fantasy or history. They are both pretty depressing. Except Legend of Zelda. That shit’s rad.
mariezer asked: They're well written and not so much "fantasy" as they are political intrigue with dragons in it, and they're especially good resources if you're talking about modern feminist literature (written by a man!) but they're daunting if it's not your favorite genre. But the show... no. Fuck that show.
I don’t really like political intrigue, either. If your story has swords and dragons, it better be Zelda, or idgaf. No judgement. I’m just saying.
smrfysmrfysmrf asked: That gifset is from the latest episode of Game of Thrones.
