Be quiet, Theon, be quiet! What is wrong with you? STOP IT! I have never in my life yelled at a boy like this! When my mother yells like this it’s because she loves me! I was rooting for you, we were ALL rooting for you, how DARE you? Learn something from this. When you go to bed at night, you lay there and you take responsibility for yourself, ‘cause nobody’s gonna take responsibility for you. You rolling your eyes and you acting like this because you’ve heard it all before. You don’t know where the hell I come from! You have no idea what I’ve been through! But I’m not a victim, I grow from it and I LEARN. Take responsibility for yourself!

I think the thing that I hate the most about the GoT fandom is that it seems like people believe that abuse is something justifiable like

“Theon betrayed the Starks, he deserves the torture he got from Ramsay”

“Sansa was stupid and annoying, she deserves to be beaten up by Joffrey”

“Jeyne Poole bullied Arya, she also deserves what she got from Petyr and Ramsay”

“Cersei is a bitch, she deserved her abusive husband”

The list could go on and on but I think I made my point.
