I’m a big fan of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” I’ve seen every episode, carry a torch for Peter Dinklage’s character Tyrion Lannister, and revel in the show’s embrace of nudity, sex and violence. (I’ve even got the books tucked away for my upcoming trip to Mexico — woot woot!) But did anyone else think last night’s episode went, dare I say it, a bit too far? As Emily McCombs noted over at xoJane, that scene featuring King Joffrey – and if you watched, you know what scene I’m talking about — needed a trigger warning like WHOA. Mind you, sexual violence is nothing new on “Game of Thrones” — I swear, rape is threatened or referred to in nearly every episode — but this particular depiction, in which Joffrey forces one prostitute to beat and sexually torture another prostitute for his amusement (OMG, he is THE WORST!), was almost too much for me to take. And then I found out, via my own personal GoT Encyclopedia, John DeVore, that the scene didn’t even happen in the books! Though the TV series has basically stuck to George R. R. Martin’s material from the onset, the writers/producers decided to add that scene just for funzies, I guess? Because we didn’t already hate Joffrey enough? GoT fans, what did you think? [xoJane]

For the past week, women’s media has pretty much been dominated by talk of Lena Dunham’s new show “Girls.” But newsflash! There’s other crap going on! Like the fact that this year’s prestigious Cannes Film Festival features absolutely zero films by women. That’s right: of the 23 films up for Cannes’ Very Important Palm D’Or Award, zero were made by women. And in the Un Certain Regard category — reserved for films made by up-and-coming young directors — only two were made by women.

Last night’s episode of “Mad Men” was weirdly awesome. Peggy gave a handjob in a dark movie theater (GIF after the jump!), Don tried to force Megan to enjoy Howard Johnson’s orange sherbet (GIF after the jump!), and, as shown in the clip above, Roger Sterling dropped acid. And Patty Chase, the mom from “My So-Called Life,” was there! Trippy. Keep reading »

“The Hunger Games” Jennifer Lawrence seems rather sweet and awesome — and apparently she’s also a pretty good shot. She was asked to go head-to-head against the host of a Spanish television show in archery and fared pretty well for herself. I guess playing Katniss Everdeen really rubbed off on her. [YouTube]

The Japanese girl group AKB48 is under fire for filming a series of suggestive candy ads that some claim promote homosexuality. The group’s ads for a sugary gummy candy feature the members of the group clad in school girl uniforms passing a piece of the candy between one another using only their mouths. Watchdog groups claim this ad promotes the gay lifestyle and is overly suggestive, despite the fact that none of the girls actually touch lips in the thirty-second spot.

The candy makers are standing behind the ad, and say that it’s one of the most popular commercials they’ve ever run (surprise, surprise). AKB48 is hugely successful in Japan and across Asia; last year they made more than $200 million in sales. The band features more than 60 (!) members and has its own dedicated performance space in Tokyo. [Yahoo]
