Like, it’s weird. people want to believe so badly that Johnny Depp couldn’t possibly be involved with a racist representation that they latch onto any rumor and believe it to be gospel truth.
First: whatever you read on a non-sourced tumblr, it’s usually not true, or at least not the full truth.
Second: if the portrayal is super stereotypical, you can’t erase that no matter how many reservations he visited in the past year?
There is really no way to say “Depp is not being racist” because everything he says about the role is racist as fuck.
I’m a huge Johnny Depp fan and I cannot even justify this role/movie.
Aww, thank you so much! Sansa is one of my favorite characters and admittedly, I did not initially like her in season 1 but since I started reading the series, she really warmed up to me and the unwarranted hate she gets just makes me love her even more.
imbd boards always sucks some major ass and i make a point to avoid them at all costs if i like something and want to keep my sanity
I agree, but I do use it quite frequently to get the latest development and news on projects and celebrities that I follow. Recently, though, the GOT board just pisses me off and I probably will stay off it for a while. Besides, it’s full of trolls who spoil the book series storylines so I suggest you don’t go there if you haven’t read up to ADWD.
what do you MEAN it’s inappropriate for gold digger by kanye west to be my wedding song
My friend walked down the aisle to this song and it was the best wedding i’ve ever been to
Seriously sick and tired of the misogyny among the fans of Game of Thrones on IMDb. I hate how, based on their opinions, Sansa is a “brat” and a “shallow teenage girl” because she does not want to give in to having sex with Tyrion. So fucking what? In her point of view, his family caused the murder of her father, so of course she could never be happy being married to a Lannister, even if said Lannister is the least fucked up one of them all.
In her eyes, she does not know about the good deeds that Tyrion did. And even if she does, that does not mean she is obliged to have a sexual relationship with this man whom she has no feelings for nor is she attracted to. Being a decent human being does not entitle you to have every woman fawn over you and sleep with you, especially if your family is the cause of that woman’s father’s death.
It’s really funny how Tyrion gets all the praise and admiration from show watchers because he did not want to force Sansa to consummate their marriage the night they got married. Oh my God what a heroic and chivalrous thing to do: not essentially raping a young girl who just freshly hit puberty! It was, again, something any decent human being would do. However, what Tyrion did does not deserve all of these overblown praises, hailing him as a hero, all the while putting Sansa down as a shallow, conceited brat.
And to those who say Sansa “lucked out” by marrying Tyrion, let me tell you all why you are wrong. All she ever wanted since her father died is to get out of the hellhole that is King’s Landing, and as soon as she was offered an opportunity to marry a handsome lord of a powerful family, of course she would be more than ecstatic to pursue that proposal. But then her hopes were slammed straight into a brick wall when she found out she had to marry Tyrion and have to stay in King’s Landing for an even longer amount of time than she expected. Anyone (or at least anybody who has any common sense) in her position would not be thinking about how lucky they are to be marrying the least awful member of their enemy’s family when they were so close to getting far away from said family.
And to be honest, Sansa did not even object or make a scene at her own wedding and bedding. She handled the situation with grace and subtlety, so I really don’t understand where all the hate for Sansa is coming from. She did not treat Tyrion like a monster. She did not show disgust toward him. All she did, physically, was tear up in the bed chamber. That does not warrant the name-calling and accusations of shallowness, because she has every justifiable reason and right to not want to sleep with a member of her enemy’s family.
Flip this around, and let’s go all the way back to season 1 with Sansa’s brother, Robb. The Freys (disgusting pieces of shits) offered Robb their allegiance and armed forces if Robb would marry one of their daughters once the war was won. Robb, however, OPENLY showed disgust and disappointment when he looked at his choices of bride-to-bes. Now, let’s also go to his uncle, Edmure, 2 seasons later. The show made a point of showing us that Walder Frey’s daughters are undesirable and unattractive, and somehow conveying to the viewers that we should feel bad for Robb and Edmure since they had to marry one of them. I’m not justifying the Freys by any means, but what Sansa did to Tyrion (which is NOTHING) is no worse than what Robb and Edmure did to the Frey daughters. However, because of sexism, Sansa is automatically seen as a brat and a prude for not desiring Tyrion, while Robb and Edmure were sympathized with by the audience because they were possibly going to marry an “ugly” bride.
TL;DR: The GoT fandom is a bunch of hypocrites and many times extremely sexist.
do u ever get so torn between being productive or doing something fun that they cancel each other out and you wind up just sitting on your ass
did you mean the story of my entire life
For most of America, Psy is a funny name, a funny face, and a funny personality. He doesn’t sing in English and most people just don’t get it leaving most of them to not take him seriously. It’s easy to strip the significance behind “Gangnam Style” down if you don’t know what it means and solely find entertainment in the Asian guy shaking his hips. But what most people don’t realize is that Psy doesn’t take himself seriously. He’s a satirist and political dissident. “Gangnam Style” was a commentary, not just a fun pop tune with a silly dance.
Gangnam is Seoul’s wealthiest and flashiest neighborhood. For South Koreans, Gangnam represents the ideal life of excess and consumerism. Psy’s character in the video is a wannabe Gangnamite. He dreams he’s living the flashy, excessive lifestyle while he’s really just like everyone else, swimming in a public pool and riding the subway. But never in the video does it seem that Psy’s character is unhappy. He’s content to play in a children’s playground and meet the girl of his dreams in the subway. “Gangnam Style” is much more that we have made it, but that’s not surprising considering Psy’s background and how little we know about it.
In America, it seems like “Gangnam Style” was Psy’s big break when in fact the song had been released on his sixth studio album and his music career hadn’t been about making flashy and catchy songs. He believes music is the key to overcoming the intolerance embedded in his country’s political systems. Throughout his career, his songs have been banned for inappropriate content and have been surrounded by controversy, not to mention the fact that he fought his mandatory military draft.
Psy is a voice for his people. He’s fighting the oppression and intolerance he sees in his culture through his music. And by ignoring his worth and his value, we’re reducing the culture of South Korea into a short man with funny pants doing a ridiculous dance.
