I just finished a book by Harold Robbins, “The Adventurers.” I’m sure you’ve never heard of him, he was very popular in the sixties. Indeed this book was written in ‘66. I almost put it down about halfway through part one because every female character introduced in this section was raped and murdered! With two exceptions, one of them was just murdered and the other was a six year old child. This attitude that women have no worth (while Mr. Robbins wasn’t responsible for it, he sure put it on paper very clearly) is what spurred the women’s lib movement in the sixties. You don’t know how lucky you are.
My mom, who I largely credit for instilling in me the values and ideas that made me a feminist. We talk about books over email all the time, and this is part of what she sent me today.
"You don’t know how lucky you are."
Well that’s… a slight relief. :( But seriously, this is so unnecessary. They’re slowly erasing most of the stuff in the books that make the women and their stories awesome. There is absolutely zero reason for this to happen to Sansa, and their description that it will be filmed “beautifully” like a ballet is… supposed to make us feel better?
Fuck that noise.
