HOLD UP! Find me an episode when she's raped someone. She has sex to heal and she doesn't trick people into be

hence why I said she no longer does it. 

But there's no doubt that 99% of her previous victims were not really willing till she touched them. 

Everyone she had sex with beofre the show started died because she couldn't control her powers. If thats what you call rape then sure she's raped people. 

 Pretty mcuh yeah. Her powers are a form of mind control, which means taking away consent of someone. That's why nowadays she would rather die than do that again to an unwilling person(S3 Bo does not count since that's a different matter)

Rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse, which is initiated by one or more persons against another person without that person's consent. The act may be carried out by physical force, coercion, abuse of authority or with a person who is incapable of valid consent, such as one who is unconscious, incapacitated, or below the legal age of consent.

By this definition how in God's name does Bo sexually assault people??? Touching someone and making their sex juices flow is still coersion but is ENTIRELY different than physically taking advantage of them. Sure the authority goes to Bo but its never physical and it never leaves anyone hurt (emotionally or physically). Bo is just manipulating them as far as i'm concerned just like mind control. Also, rape is defined by the society values right? EVERY fae "feeds" off some part of a human whether emotionally, mentally or physically to survive. Bo feeds off sexual energy to survive. I think we have to make a different definition for rape in her case. Becasue anyone could argue that just being in close proximity to a human is raping them for a succubus which is just bullshit unless she's sucking the chi from all of them. Remember when she was at the rave and getting high off a group of girls dancing? SHe said she was tapping into the energy in the room when she started dancing with them. What was she doing raping them too?

Agreed. I just thought you meant that just by using her powers to gain an advantage on her cases was a form of raping because that is all levels of cray cray. And what she does is NOTHING like Damon. He actually coerces them into bed and coerces them to stay there.

rape is not physica. Its about CONSENT.

You said it yourself:

"with a person who is incapable of valid consent, "

 

 

Her powers affect people's sexual desires. SO yeah, what she did in her past is rape. And its rape by our values. not by fae. But by our, the values bo grew up with - hence why she is so fucked up and guilt-ridden when it comes to her powers.

Never said it was about just the physical. I agree about the consent part whole heartedly i just wanted to make it clear that what she does NOW on a daily basis is coercion, no doubt about that, but it is NOT rape. We've also agreed that she used to rape to survive but that was never since the show began. What we agree on and what Halde were saying are two different things however. Halde is comparing Bo's sexual escapades to Damon. Damon rapes on screen and doesn't feel tormented about it. For Bo its NOT rape, not since we've known her anyway, and she feels guilt for eating the last scoop of ice cream for God's sake. The point is those 2 characters should never be compared.....FOR ANYTHING!

Not even gonna comment on the lack of originality bit. Name me a show in the last 10 years thats supernaturaly that hasn't been based on something that came before its time. And if you're gonna base your show on werewolves or vampires than you have to stick to the basics that define those creatures. The same goes for the fae. Apart from the light and dark courts and the basic background that every supernatural SHOULD keep sacred (or we start calling them Twilight) then i fail to see the unoriginality. I think LG is a breath of fresh air on these issues actually because it doesn't really focus on the creatures per say, just their role in the fea society and their interactions with Bo.

Oh:) Kitty just said something about OUAT(or maybe i read you wrong?).

 

I am not saying that it's because it's based on something. That's completly fine. But the whole dark and light is a cliche to a cliche. It is simply one of the most unintriguing thing i have seen in a long time. There is no excitement behind what kind of buisness either of the sides do. It might not have a huge focus in the long run, but in the 8 or so episodes i have seen, it has played a somewhat large and immensly boring role.

 

The five families thing, was just because i believe with little effort, that any good writer could have easily come up with something more original, than copy/paste the order of the Sicilian Mafia. That might just be me though.

Sorry, i thought i specified it as something that had happend before the point of the series start.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
