Please consider emailing Time magazine at email@example.com to get them to reconsider not putting Laverne Cox on their list. She overwhelmingly got voted in at 91.5%, but was not put on there. Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood had 25% of the vote and was put on there.
The erasure of trans women, and women of color needs to stop. Ms. Cox does nothing but good work.
HBO has been criticized in the past for relying on sex and violence to sell their shows. Given the subject matter of A Song of Ice and Fire, a gritty power struggle in a medieval realm with dragons and multiple ongoing wars, “Game of Thrones” was never going to break this mold.
As the show has progressed, though, showrunners/writers Benioff and Weiss have chosen to inject additional violence, especially sexual violence, into a series already rife with brutality. While the widely-condemned rape scene in “Breaker of Chains” has brought a lot of recent attention to this issue, it’s hardly the first example of added violence in the show, and not even the first instance of added violence for the character of Jaime Lannister.
Benedict cumberbatch is on a list of influential people and he hasn’t done a god damn thing to influence any fucking human except give fandom bloggers feels

so, about a week ago i was all “hey, i never actually go around to watching demo reel, did i?”
so then i did and now i have all these feelings about a show i’m like 90% sure no one actually cares about anymore.
(while we’re on the subject, obligatory statement about how mad i am about ‘the review must go on’ because let me explain you a thing, doug- you do not make me cry over a character and then say ‘actually his entire life was just purgatory for some other dude and didn’t really matter at all. lol!’. like, on the list of things that are not okay, that was really, really, not fucking okay.)
also i drew a thing. its kind of shit, sorry.
(au where i know how to draw hands lol)
