So I was very recently directed by Lady Geek Girl to an article on BitchMedia called True Blood: A Werepanther Rape is Not a “Sex” Scene, and I feel the need to address it. You can find the original article here. I would like everyone to know that I do not watch True Blood. My old roommate used to, so I would see clips of it on occasion, but overall I don’t know what the show is even really about, except vampires, and due to overuse in the media nowadays, my interest in bloodsucking night creatures has sadly died off.
I feel the need to warn you that I will be talking about rape quite a bit in this post, and this may be triggering, so continue at your own risk.
