Jason Momoa is CANCELLED after this joke (?) about getting to ‘rape beautiful women’
Another one bites the dust
by Katie Way
The graphic depictions of nonconsensual sex on Game of Thrones might bother some critics, but at least one person in the show seems fully onboard: Jason Momoa, best known for playing warlord Khal Drogo in the show's first season.
In a clip that recently surfaced (wonder why?) Momoa can be seen at what appears to be San Diego Comic-Con's Game of Thrones panel in 2011, joking about all of the freedom a fantasy world offers. Which like, yeah, that's why people like fantasy.
After all, Game of Thrones's Westeros is chock full of magic, political intrigue and even dragons! That's what Momoa also likes about fantasy as a genre, right?
Wrong! Watch the clip below:

In it, Momoa can be heard saying the following:
But as far as sci-fi and fantasy… there’s so many things you can do and get away with it, like rip someone’s tongue out of their throat, and rape beautiful women, you know?
Oh. Okay. So like, not the dragons?
Momoa's comment receives a wave of hearty laughter from the audience, but his a few of his fellow panelists, like Kit Harington and Peter Dinklage, are visibly uncomfortable.
In light of recent revelations about Harvey Weinstein and the men of Hollywood as a whole, being on the record making rape jokes is not a great look for Aquaman.

There will always be people waiting in the wings to insist that rape jokes don't encourage violence against women.
They're just jokes. But joking about committing sexual assault is a textbook example of "punching down" with humor, making someone vulnerable the butt of the joke.
It's easy, it's boring, it's hurtful, and we are not here for it.

Sorry, but dismissing an uncut cock is prejudiced and bitchy
Don’t knock it ’til you try it
by Ari Bines
The thing about confident women is that we've gotten really picky over the years. We understand the definition of self-love and self-worth and that's problematic because it means we know what we deserve. So, in some sex cases (like mine), a woman will come across a man who's got a great personality, a killer bod…
This Instagram account is dedicated to the ugly era of super-skinny eyebrows
by Katie Way
Remember when it was fashionable to pluck the ever-loving shit out of your eyebrows until they were practically nonexistent? I sure wish I could forget that bygone era, but no matter how much I binge-drink I cannot. And apparently nobody else can either, because now there's an entire Instagram account dedicated to tiny-ass brows. It…
