I love Sunday night television. “Game of Thrones” with a “Mad Men” chaser, nothing is more satisfying! But in the last few weeks, I’ve noticed something. Theon Greyjoy on “Game of Thrones” is basically the Pete Campbell of Westeros. Think about it. Both are so pathetic you might feel sorry for them, if they weren’t so loathsome.

Note: I know Theon's sister is named Asha in the books, but for the TV show, which is really what we're comparing in this context, her name was changed to Yara.]

Some of the most interesting characters in classic fairy tales (many of which have been translated into Disney films) are the “evil” queens, sorceresses, and crones who are at odds with the precious heroines. For example, in the upcoming film, “Snow White and the Huntsman,” Charlize Theron’s evil Queen Ravenna is so delightfully dark yet glamorous, that we’re already asking, “Uh, Snow White, who?” Seriously, characters like Ravenna, Cinderella’s evil step-mother, the sea witch from “The Little Mermaid,” Maleficent in “Sleeping Beauty,” and Gothel in “Rapunzel” are what give fairy tales their edge — but the question is, which one are you most like?

Seriously, I wish someone would have taught me about the six types of attraction way earlier in my life. Like when I was nine. So I would have known the difference between my Squishes and my Crushes. It would have saved me so much trouble. I think I am going to start referring to all my friends Squishes. [Transgender Student Life]
