On last week’s GOT (Rape TW)

fatpinkcast:

Why do people think Jaime doesn’t know what constitutes as rape when he’s one of the only men in the books who acknowledges that men can and do rape their wives…and that that’s wrong? It also bothers him that some of the most renowned and praised Kingsguard men stood by while Aerys raped Rhaella multiple times over the course of their marriage.

His interaction with Pia’s also quite telling:

One of the Mountain’s men had tried to rape Pia, so Jaime commands Ser Ilyn Payne to take his head off. As they forced him to his knees the man seems honestly perplexed, saying he had her hundreds of times, they all did. When Ser Ilyn presented Pia with his head she had smiled through her ruined teeth.

Later to his squire Peck:

He advises him to be kind to her if he beds her, to treat her as he would his bride.

Pretty Pia’s slept with many men, yet Jaime still considers what happens to her attempted rape. He doesn’t excuse it because she’s promiscuous and ~you can’t rape someone who has sex to survive.~ He commands Ser Illyn Payne to take the head of the man who attempted to rape her even though this man has “had her hundreds of times.” He also advises his squire to treat her well.

How can anyone can argue that Jaime would violate Cersei and not think anything of it…that he wouldn’t understand that it’s rape because of the patriarchal society he grew up in where people think it’s okay for men to rape women who have previously consented?

Jaime sees rape as morally wrong in a way that most men in these books don’t and despite society excusing spousal rape.

#go on  

I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.
