I was watching a TV show that I follow when suddenly, out of nowhere, there was a graphic rape subplot. The character to whom this was happening is the strongest female character in the series, and the episode was absolutely horrifying. No trigger warning, no foreshadowing to indicate this might be happening, and suddenly she’s almost raped. The scene was prolonged and graphic, and I found myself dry-sobbing at how out-of-the-blue and shocking it was. It was unnecessary in every sense of the word, and I was so utterly disappointed by the creators’ choice to include it (especially with no warning).
