if you think having thick hair is a blessing youre wrong
We’re all familiar with the “fuck or die” trope. Now it’s happening on Teen Wolf. This is disconcerting.
The characters who are virgins are being told that they have to lose their virginity or risk death.
This choice invalidates consent.
Consent should be freely given, when characters are clear-headed. The fact that Stiles and Isaac and whoever else is a virgin are fearing for their lives right now makes their minds clouded. They can’t consent.
This makes me very uncomfortable, especially in regards to Isaac. Isaac who was an abuse victim for many years, and therefore has not had much of his own agency in his life. He may or may not be ready for sex. But his choice is being taken away from him. It’s “fuck or die.”.
And Stiles may very well be ready for sex, as was shown in 3.02, but even then, his ability to consent freely is impaired.
I’m not saying that “fuck or die” isn’t an interesting trope, I’m only pointing out the inherent consent issues that exist within the trope.
As long as this sword is hanging over their heads, any virgin characters aware of the situation cannot freely consent to sex.
Gwendoline Christie is the actress for Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones. She stands at 6 feet 3 inches tall and took swordfighting, horseriding, and stagefighting lessons for her part, as well as gaining 14 pounds of muscle, to accurately portray Brienne. (x)
She was also terrified of cutting her hair because she’d spent her life believing it was one of the only things that would make people see her as feminine despite her height. In an interview with TV Guide she said:
I struggled for a long time with [cutting] my hair, but then I’m grateful for the opportunity to realize that femininity doesn’t have to come from hair or any of those traditional female archetypes of appearance, So, that’s been exciting actually. I can’t speak with any kind of authority whatsoever because I’m just an actor and I only have my opinions, but I do think it’s really refreshing to have a woman depicted on a mainstream TV show that doesn’t obey typical aesthetics of females and the way they have been portrayed in the past. And I’m really excited to be portraying one of those women. And I hope that her popularity signals a greater expansion of people’s views about men and women and that gender types can be more flexible.
