Taking Action Regarding that Westeros.org Mod?
If we found the right contact person at HBO UK and Sky1 and collated all of Linda’s previous (sexist, heterosexist, transphobic, ablelist, etc.) statements calling fangirls cunts and retards (etc.), would people be interested in a letter writing campaign informing HBO UK and Sky1 about her extracurricular activities?
Because she does not speak for us.
“ Cersei agreed to marry Robert - she could have refused Cersei knew that being queen meant she was expected to do her marital duties and to provide her husband with an heir. No woman in Westeros is going to fail to realize this. Cersei was not intimidated by Robert, she was disgusted by Robert following their wedding night. Cersei, because of her disgust with Robert, choose to deny him heirs. However, she knew that if she denied him sex, she could potentially lose her position as queen. Cersei did not want to lose her crown, so she did not deny Robert sex. She just made sure to make it unappealing by simply lying there. Robert was insensitive about it, yes, but given how she plainly showed her disgust for him, how easy was it for him to do his duty? I don’t think he got drunk before sleeping with whores. He got drunk to sleep with Cersei because of her apparent disgust with him. Robert had no reason to think she was not doing the same thing as him; going through with an unpleasant duty. If Cersei had truly wanted to, she could have said no. The consequences would have been unpleasant for her, but because of society, not because of Robert. Because of this, one cannot argue that Robert raped her. As far as he understood — and as far as she saw it as well — they were performing their expected marital duties. He could still have been more considerate, no doubt about it. But he didn’t rape her. They were both in that marriage together and they both made the other act badly. Ultimately, it comes down to Cersei’s desire to be queen which kept her from risking an end to the marriage as well as to Westerosi attitudes about marital duties and heirs. She is trading her body for social status and paying the price for it.”—

How to argue that Cersei is a whore (“she is trading her body for social status and paying the price for it.”) instead of a victim of marital rape (“Because of this, one cannot argue that Robert raped her.”)
Yes, POOR ROBERT, POOR POOR ROBERT FOR NOT-RAPING CERSEI HE WAS ONLY TRYING TO DO HIS DUTY CERSEI TOTALLY COULD HAVE SAID NO.
This is the person GRRM, HBO, and a ton of fanboys have chosen to represent Game of Thrones fans.
It’s insulting that she speaks for us, especially after calling so many fangirls “retards” and “cunts.”
She doesn’t speak for me.
Hah, apparently Linda has been made aware of this Tumblr.
Frankly, it’s more of a signal boost more than anything. If you’re reading this, thanks for acknowledging me!
Granted, she doesn’t mention me by name, but it’s obvious she’s talking about us.
Linda how are you even a person?
The only thing I will correct is that she is a co-owner, not just a moderator. Apparently, I’m “lying”, but by responding to and basically acknowledging my points, she just validates the purpose of this blog. She doesn’t even go out of her way to prove them wrong.
I’m just gonna take the time to respond to her thoughts.
- She talks about how, if Chataya was cast, they probably would have made her white. Which is essentially what they did on the show by substituting Ros on the show.
- It’s possible to like the show and acknowledge its faults without being dismissive of the show. Obviously not in Linda’s case.
- Basically acknowledges her misogyny and hate of all things fanfiction-y. Nothing new here really.
- Any way you spin it, you’re basically limiting the creativity of your so-called “fan creations”. Contrary to Linda’s limited world view, not all fanfiction is smut.
- Also, I’d love to know what her justification is on the grounds that her MUSH is not fanfiction. Apparently because Martin acknowledges it?
And I love how proud she is about the fact that Sandor Clegane threads were closed. Let it be known that the largest fansite for ASoIaF/GoT does not approve of free speech and will censor your opinions if they are “problematic”.
Oh, Linda, you so crazy.
jesters-armed said: Priceless!! One more, please! She always denies conflict of interest but she’s doing the subtitles for the series???
Really? Where did you find this juicy nugget? Do tell!
jesters-armed said: She says so herself:”Unfortunately, I will likely have to watch the rest later to do the subtitling…” Here’s the link: hippoiathanatoi.tumblr….
Here’s hoping her fragile mind won’t explode :p
a brief one today
- westeros.org is sexist, racist, anti-fangirl, pro-‘purity’, etc
- but is that any need to bring yourself down to the level of linda + co
- by ripping apart every innocuous thing said on her (more personal, think) website?
- do you really think that makes you better than her?
- it doesn’t.
- rise above it.
- just because they’re shitty human beings doesn’t mean you have to be.
i agree with every single thing said by anti-westeros.org people - i think the place is bloody horrible, and the idea that people like linda refused someone the right to be on their rp because they wanted to portray a black character is ridiculous, the fact she takes a holier than thou attitude to everything is just pathetic, etc. honest to god, i get it. it’s disgusting. it makes for a bad site admin, if nothing else.
but that’s no need to become like her or anyone she associates with in your treatment. tearing apart every statement she says to find fault and make fun of it (even when it’s nothing to do with asoiaf)? it makes you no better than her. really, thronies, westerosi, loyal fans, whatever you would like to refer to yourselves as: i know you are honestly better than that. so much better than that.
now prove it, and continue to tear apart the appropriately horrific things she says.
edit: i just realised that someone might find the use of the lindaaa and lindaaafail tags to be, how to say… to be directing this post at specific people. it really isn’t - those are just tags i’ve seen whilst trawling the westeros.org tag. i apologise if anyone feels personally offended and that i’ve used people’s personal tags without realising. one of the points of this blog is some majorly obnoxious tagging, s’all :>
fact: the only person I hateread regularly on tumblr is LINDAAAAAAA. she is ridic enough that my only reaction is amused pity.
and a smidgen of The World In Which Someone Like That Has Access To Screeners and HBO Secrets And GGRM Book Dedications Is A World That Needs To Burn In Addition To All The Other Reasons It Needs To Burn. (TWIWSLTHATSAHSAGBDIAWTNTBIATATORINTB)
