No one is arguing that Jeyne isn’t raped in the book — they are saying Sansa isn't raped in the books. Dick.

Additionally, and this isn’t really getting discussed, by giving her Jeyne’s story they have totally erased the Alayne storyline from the books. i get that the whole process of Sansa becoming Alanye is dull but it is also crucial to understanding her as a character.

It’s almost like they said - well we wanna have Theon do his Jeyne Poole story really bad so we’re just going to ignore how dumb it is for Baelish and the Boltons to do all of (form a pointless alliance, reveal Sansa’s whereabouts to everyone in the North and to Cersei, to PISS OFF Cersei majorly, to have Baelish Read more

People want to say that Jaime actually Read more

I feel like no one is referencing Cersei’s rape last season. It was another instance where we all had to pretend like that shit never happened because it was SO BAD. Everyone hated it D&D why did you do it again!>?@

She knew when she married him she’d have to have sex. Not be raped in front of Theon.
