    The woman at 50:20 needs to just get up and leave. So tired of seeing morons get upset over a fictional scene in a show that takes place thematically in a completely different universe. Rape happens daily in that universe because it makes sense. People are primitive, people are savage and barbaric, people haven't established morals or broke free from their primitive ways yet, just like how our history used to pan out until we changed over time. It's MEANT to be horrifying because that makes the experience feel more real and true to how things USED to be. It's not fucking condoning it, it's emphasizing how scary it is and DISCOURAGING it. Anyone that gets upset about it or feels the need to make note of it for the producers needs to stop watching. They can't handle television or fiction.

    There's always that one fucking feminist isn't there. They ruin everything, it's as if she almost knew she was retarded with that stuttering. People get slaughtered like pigs in this show. People get beheaded, children get burned to a crisp. But that one "rape" scene was too much for this precious snowflake… God damn.

    Jon Bradley's demeanor really postulated that he IS entirely anything else but his own character in a manner of living. Kit is obviously more quite and speaks briefly yet soundly and straight to the point -with two of them conversing – it's almost like lord commander Jon Snow and Samwell Tarly engaging in a conversation where Jon fascinates himself over Samwell's passion and Samwell knows Jon will always understand him

    So in an open Q&A that takes more than an hour to watch, among many other questions, there is ONE person asking ONE question about that particular "rape scene". And the comment section explodes with "THERE HAS ALWAYS TO BE ONE CRAZY TRIGGERED FEMINIST OH NO RADICAL FEMINISTS DESTROY EVERYTHING".

    So to you, it is "radical" and "destroying" – to ask a question? To have an opinion? To ask a question that has been asked before? Are you sure you know what "radical" means? And if it is so annoying to you that the discussion keeps going on, you think it logical to post one more comment to the already countless amount of them below this particular video (and likely every other interview or q&a where the topic is raised)?

    Well, if men are that easily threatened, this is why we need feminism in 2016 still.
