At the end of the day, the real trouble with this scene is that the creators took a character that by now people pretty universally like (Jaime) and had him rape a character that people pretty universally hate (Cersei). I cannot believe that there wasn’t an intention there to make this scene feel cathartic for people who hate Cersei. She acts superior, she schemes, she plots, she plays with people’s lives… and then her autonomy and power are taken away from her in a savage and degrading way by someone she loves (and we like).
And hey, look at all of the comments on the article — she basically wanted it. No doesn’t really mean no when you act like you want it, right?
Rape culture, boys and girls. You’re looking at it."
