    Gender relations in Westeros

    Thank you Tbh this whole topic does upset me a lot. And I also don't see any way this is going to change anytime soon, because ppl are just so used to it, that most don't even recognize it It's a subconscious thing. And if they do, they maybe don't even care- to much money in objectifying women, really (for example in cinema, or maybe it's just perceived that way- dunno) Same thing with the "male gaze" in cinema- there are really to many examples to list them all.

    This chelsea/ ajax game has been a touch disappointing.

    yeah, and that's why it feels sexualized and voyeuristic

    Game of Star Wars: The Final Hope

    Come on C3PO is much more useful than that, where would we be without him, we wouldn’t know the instability of various floors or the odds of surviving a direct assault from an Imperial Star Destroyer. I think my first run through will definitely be at home with the ability to pause . I honestly didn’t like Star Wars much as a kid, I think the scene in Yodas hut in ESB freaked me out a bit when I was 5 or 6. When I really started to enjoy it was when I went to see Revenge of the Sith on opening night with my dad when I was 17 and loved it, I went home and watched all of the films with him over the weekend. I’m so looking forward to being able to watch the films with my daughter from when she is much younger than I was, of course I will educate her to have the correct viewpoint of the plot, the Jedi are evil, the Rebellion are terrorists and pests and she can have any toy lightsaber she wants as long as it’s red .

    All these fuckers better be seeing their security clearances revoked. This is a disgrace.

    Mmmm, true. I guess that being a heterosexual man, female breasts appeal to him in a different way than it does to us. If I was Daenerys and my tokar fell off, all I'd think about would be ''whooops''.

    Succession Season 2 - Full Spoilers

    Have finally gotten around to watching this, and binged the two seasons in a few days. It's interesting to see after-reviews and commentary on those who watched it as it was meant to be watched, on a weekly schedule. In particular, I have to say, the Kendall and Logan in cahoots thing does not come off at all if you binge it all. What becomes painfully obvious is that Logan Roy is well past his best years, is no longer the shark in the water that he used to be, and has been relying more and more on his reputation and his wealth to get by while others are nimbler and smarter. Logan is almost painfully ineffective in the last episodes, but he's also someone who seems himself as survivor, and he'll never let go. Hence, sacrificing his son to save his own skin... and that smile was a moment's recognition that that son was, when push came to shove, ready to be a killer, and so a moment of pride. But it doesn't mean he's not going to fight tooth and nail to save his own skin, IMO. Anyways, wonderfully written show. I think the only aspect of the second season that I was displeased with was how Marcia largely vanishes from the story even before Rhea is on the scene. I'm not sure what to make of that.
  13. CNN reports the room is still uncleared. The hearings are not going on. It's a coup via shutting down the process of impeachment.

    But you can't compare an erection to body parts. With an erection there is something happening. The equivalent would be to describe, how a woman is getting aroused, that's fine. But the equivalent to describing female breasts in all their "details" and how they look and how they move from a woman's pov, would be for example to write in great detail from a man's pov about his penis, when he doesn't have an erection and what that penis exactly does or some other body part I dunno

    Why does Balon Greyjoy want to attack the North?

    She has brains. The only way the Iron Islands can remain independent its if Westeros fractures into separate kingdoms. The Greyjoy Rebellion is a good example of what happens you attack a united Westeros.

    I'd compare the way he often describes women's breasts with erections. I remember it was a common theme in some of Tyrion's and Sam's POVs, also mentioned in Jon's.
  18. As Magic explains... The Lakers got fined last year because Magic said in an interview that Giannis would win a ring with the Bucks one day. It's a made up controversy.

    Yes, I agree. And GRRM actually has said that himself. That he is biased because he is a white man, who grew up in the 60s. Also in regards to race. "voyeuristic the female POV characters are of their own bodies" omg this sticks out so much. He especially did that with Dany. Dunno how often he did describes her boobs and what they are doing. This is just utterly unrealistic. Just one example "Her small breasts moved freely beneath a painted Dothraki vest," A Clash of Kings This is just ridiculous - I'm sorry. Maybe there are some women, who are hyper aware of their own bodies like that, but personally I have never in my life thought something so stupid like that nor do I sexualize myself like that, the closet to a realistic pov in that matter would be "hm, maybe should put on a bra" or something lol or "shit my boobs hurt" I dont recall him ever writing things like: Jon's dick moved freely between his legs lol In general he doesn't describe male bodies in the same way he describes female bodies.

    What shouldn't be done...about climate change

    That sounds more in line with what I know, thanks! ..not that it isn't bad news, or that the news on climate in general aren't bad, just that they haven't worsened that much in the last few days.

    How does one change one's rank?

    Our profiles have ranks according to how much we've posted, and usually it's stuff like "commoner" "freerider" or "council member". Some people have ranks that seems made up by themselves though. I don't know how to do that, and I wish I did. Can someone help me out? I just don't want to be a "noble".

    NBA Off-Season 2019 - Bridge Over the River Kawhi

    What was Jordan banging on about 'Steph isnt a HoFer yet'? How many 2 time MVPs with 3 titles arent in there?
  25. I remember reading the books with some fondness, but sure, Asimov wasn't a great wordsmith and his characters were pretty thin. That said, I think any attempt that captures the size and scope of the Galactic Empire and Trantor could be interesting. And if they get to the Mule... that could be quite cool. Goyer bothers me, though. Harris and Pace, great, fine actors both, but Goyer is a fairly mediocre producer and writer. That's concerning.
