The famous Daenerys rape scene from GOT
To say the truth Daenerys rape never happen in the book ! That is just a scene that HBO added to earn more viewers, like boobs bait in Youtube. Many producers used this easy way to shock and make people talk about their production.
I think there is also a lage part of fantasy, like Verhoeven did in most of his movie like HollowMan. You can be sure if men are behind the camera, violence will always be sexualised.
Emilia Clarke felt degrade by this scene
In George R.R. Martin wrote the wedding night, Daenerys was surprise by the gentle and caring behavior of Khal Drogo, and felt in love… In the serie, the destiny of the Targaryen princess is less romantic, Khal Drogo is just a brutal rapist.
It was not easy for the actress Emilia Clarke to play this scene, who’s really degrading for women. Even the author was disagree with this scene. But machism is still strong in Hollywood, and the degradation of women will still be a fuel of selling screen time… Wich is stupid, Games of Throne is a fantastic serie, and removing the rape scene would only made it better !
Rape scene review : The most famous pilot rape scene
Westworld also got a pilot rape scene, seem that in this time it was really common to disturb watchers mind ! The scene is there to show the brutality of the world but it’s a bit too much sexualised. Especialy when Daenery smile at the end watching the eggs.
It’s too much glory for rape culture, be a matcho and strong, rape your woman and she will love you after all… That just stupid… Sexual violence is horrible and there is no way you are strong when you brutalize a woman… The show miss the opportunity to reveal of the horror of this crime, to make it more hot !
It don’t bother me in porn movie, that’s the goal, but in mainstream, that’s more disturbing.
