Krista and Tatiana Hogan are craniopagus twins, meaning they’re connected at the head.

They share a structure that connects Krista’s thalamus to Tatiana’s. The thalamus is a double-lobed organ that plays important roles in processing sensory input and creating consciousness.

Since Krista’s and Tatiana’s thalami are connected, scientists and members of the Hogan family think the girls might view the world differently than the rest of us do.

For example, Dr. Cochrane believes the girls can see through each other’s eyes. He came to this conclusion after covering Krista’s eyes, placing electrodes on her head, and watched Krista’s brain respond after shining a light in Tatiana’s pupils.

Other times, one girl will be watching TV while the other is looking somewhere else. Suddenly, the twin not watching TV will start laughing at what’s happening onscreen.

Their “thalamic bridge” also affects their sense of taste. Krista is a ketchup fiend, but Tatiana hates the stuff. Once, Krista was eating ketchup, and Tatiana furiously tried to wipe it off her own tongue even though she wasn’t eating any ketchup herself.

Perhaps the strangest phenomenon of all is that the twins sometimes use the word “I” to describe both of themselves at once.

As of 2011, no one had run any conclusive tests on the girls and their odd condition. However, scientists who have observed their behavior and brain scans are flabbergasted and excited. While no one can say for sure at the moment, it really does seem Krista and Tatiana can share private thoughts and perceive what the other is sensing.

As someone who wants to study consciousness in the future, I can say this is one of the most extraordinary cases I have ever heard of.

Well, it becomes consensual by the end, because anything for them ultimately results in a turn-on, especially a power struggle… That’s one of my favorite scenes I’ve ever done.
~

Director Alex Graves regarding the Jaime/Cersei rape scene on Game of Thrones.

"It’s one thing to present horrific acts in fictional media; it’s another to present a horrific act and deny that it is horrific, particularly when it happens to be disturbingly commonplace in real life and frequently denied its significance and legitimacy in that precise way.”

-Laura Hudson, Wired 

(via twentysomethingconfusion)

I haven’t seen nothing consensual in that scene.

Hey I was going through my feed and I saw your tags with regards to the article on why the GoT writers raped Cersei Lannister. Just wanted to say well done, I love seeing guys that are aware of rape culture and why it's bad. I know that seems pathetic and weird but as a stark feminist (get it?) I see the opposite far too often and guys trying to justify rape and all other hideous things, so your tags have made my day. Don't change :D

georgeofoldvalyria:

Honestly I’m a feminist too (good pun btw omg). You’re very sweet but I don’t need to be praised or anything; I’m just being a decent human ya know. But your message has made my day, so thank you <3

The thing is, I get really angry that a series which actively fights misogyny and rape culture by using both to demonstrate their inherent barbarism has been changed illogically by screen writers to do the exact opposite. The fact that they almost blame Cersei for her rape is infuriating. Rape is not comeuppance for anything, it’s not justice, and to dismiss rape as “karma” is regressive and misogynist, and it actively promotes rape culture by saying “it’s okay, she deserved it”. Say what you like about Cersei. She’s a “bitch” or whatever. But no one, absolutely no one, deserves to be raped.

And the other thing is that Jaime, in the books, is decidedly against rape. He is sickened by it and takes action against rapists and he assertively shows that rape is wrong and that men think so too. That it’s not the norm, but that those who practise and support it are regressive and barbaric, and that rape cannot be excused in terms of “boys will be boys”. By removing the only openly anti-rape male character from the series, rape culture is dismissed as a a female conspiracy theory; an overreaction to what is the norm. And that is even more damaging, I think, because it allows rape to be easily excused because there is no character in a position of privilege to show that this isn’t normal or acceptable.  

That’s what I think about it.

tw: rape

norma-bara:

OK. I think it’s been enough time after the episode for a post on this, but I am NOT impressed with the Jaime/Cersei scene and I will explain to you why:

This was a rape scene. It was not consensual, there was only one point where Cersei was obviously kissing him back, but the rest of the scene consisted of her saying ”No” ”This is not right” to which Jaime replied ”I don’t care” 

Now, I have seen people make the argument that Jaime is a terrible person anyway, I will agree he has done terrible things like the attempted murder of a child, but being a rapist IS NOT AT ALL CONSISTENT WITH HIS CHARACTER. Westeros is a brutal world, we understand rape and murder is rampant, but JAIME IS NOT A RAPIST. This scene makes him one. 

So, this scene is extremely damaging to Jaime as a character, espeically as he is a character that is almost universally enjoyed and liked by fans, NOW…on to Cersei; Cersei is a character that is obviously a ‘baddy’ she is a villain and a lot of people do not like her. Having a character that audiences enjoy RAPE a character that audiences DON’T always enjoy is a DISGUSTING attempt at some sort of Catharsis? 

Cersei would NEVER love a man who would EVER do this to her. She loathed Robert because he was a drunken, abusive man who would rape her. And now they make Jaime, her TWIN and supposedly the man she truly loves RAPE her? It’s becoming more and more evident that the makers of this show really do not like women very much. 

This wasn’t rough sex, Jaime and Cersei do have rough sex, this was NOT consensual, so instead of a powerful, albeit disturbing scene where Jaime and Cersei consensually fuck beside the corpse of their son, we instead get a horrific power struggle and rape scene where a character most viewers enjoy rapes a character a lot of viewers don’t enjoy next to the corpse of her NEWLY DEAD SON. How is this not problematic for a NUMBER OF REASONS?
