#YOU KNOW WHAT’S BRILLIANT ABOUT THIS SCENE?? SHE’S LYING #he’s never called her stupid #he’s told her that she’s a terrible liar #but instructed her she should get better at it #not to tell the truth #sansa’s clearly genuinely upset here #but she tells lysa exactly what lysa wants to hear #in such a way that it’s all the more believable #it was a clever little manipulation and i think it really shows how far she’s come #and then of course when lysa hugs her she drops the act and opens her eyes #sansa stark #is smarter than people think
Sansa knows how to survive. She’s powerful with the mind and society. I love her.

Margaret Cho, “Yes Means Yes” (via thewastedgeneration)
I am surprised by how much sex I have had in my life that I didn’t want to have. Not exactly what’s considered “real” rape, or “date” rape, although it is a kind of rape of the spirit - a dishonest portrayal or distortion of my own desire in order to appease another person.
I said yes because I felt it was too much trouble to say no. I said yes because I didn’t want to have to defend my “no,” qualify it, justify it - deserve it. I said yes because I thought I was so ugly and fat that I should just take sex every time it was offered, because who knew when it would be offered again. I said yes to partners I never wanted in the first place, because to say no at any point after saying yes for so long would make our entire relationship a lie, so I had to keep saying yes in order to keep the “no” I felt a secret. That is such a messed-up way to live, such an awful way to love.
So these days, I say yes only when I mean yes. It does require some vigilance on my part to make sure I don’t just go on sexual automatic pilot and let people do whatever. It forces me to be really honest with myself and others. It makes me remember that loving myself is also about protecting myself and defending my own borders. I say yes to me."
