“Careful, honey, it’s loaded,” he said, reentering the bedroom. Her back rested against the headboard. “This for your wife?” “No. Too chancy. I’m hiring a professional.” “How about me?” He smirked. “Cute. But who’d be dumb enough to hire a lady hit man?” She wet her lips, sighting along the barrel. “Your wife.”

“Tywin was an absolute monster, the most horrifying character in the series so far. I don’t get how you can think his rule did any good for Westeros at all unless you conceive of Westeros as consisting solely of the Lannisters. He’s entirely motivated by profit, power and pride. Tywin had half of Westeros raped, murdered and burned for no reason other than to insure the continuing power of his own house. That’s not a leader; that’s a liability (the word is not nearly strong enough) to the realm. He had entire harvests burned in Autumn leaving the people, at least the ones he left alive, to starve without stores for a long Winter. Good for Westeros? He unleashed rapers, torturers and murderers, knowing full well what they were, on the people of the Kingdom he was supposed to lead and protect. He conspired with the Freys and the Boltons, who are shits. He is bar none the worst father in the series, having raised incestuous twins, and having turned Tyrion, who was predisposed to be a nice guy, into someone bitter and hateful enough for kinslaying (a damn satisfying scene, and necessary!). He remained blind to his children’s obvious flaws (and strengths in the case of Tyrion) and refused to see Joffrey’s blatant psychopathy even when Tyrion pointed it out. He had an innocent girl gang raped because she damaged his prestige. And Kevan is a slavering little dog who went along with all this; someone’s already quoted his high opinion of Gregor and his boys and what they did in the Riverlands. And this is all off the top of my head. The current zeitgeist seems to hold a lot of unwarranted respect for “tough” leaders who are willing to do the “hard thing.” It also seems to be oblivious to the fact that the “hard thing” is always bad for the people and always for personal profit and power. Tywin’s a perfect fictional example.”

Westeros.org messageboard user The Doubtful Guest on Tywin Lannister.

Just about the worst lesson we could draw from the way Ned’s decency made him a failure in King’s Landing is to equate indecency with success. But that’s precisely the lesson lots of readers have drawn: Tywin’s a great leader, Victarion could be Azor Ahai reborn, Dany needs to let Meereen fall to the slavers because what she really should be doing is slaughtering her way westward.

The nice thing about being a reader of these books rather than a character in them is that there’s no consequence for holding the people we’re reading about to a higher (or really, to ANY) moral standard. So why don’t we do that?

who is on your team, captain?

#completely convinced marvel just finds the actual characters to play their parts

Marvel’s casting department cannot be beat. Literally all of the actors are their characters.

Sarah Halley Finn, casting director for Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: Dark World, Captain America: Winter Soldier, Agents of SHIELD, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, and every single Marvel one-shot. All hail the queen. 



This woman has taken “good at my job” to a whole new level.

John Scalzi gets it.

This is what I have been trying to say in so many words—all men aren’t menaces to women, but all women have been menaced by men.

I think that is an important distinction to make. However, I do feel like it shifts the focus away from the men who are doing the thing a bit, and panders more to the whiny men who “aren’t like that!!!” more than necessary.

Regardless, I am so glad to see another guy taking a stand about this shit.

Oh it is total pandering to those ass-butts. But It’s the first thing you have to do is confront that bullshit. You have to have an answer for it. I got into a LONG fight with someone on Facebook about that very thing. I lumped all men into the “can’t be trusted until proven otherwise” category and got shit upon shit for it. From a gay man. I’m like wtf, man.
