Game of Thrones Headcanons

Anonymous:
GRRM is all about subverting conventions. That’s why I think Rhaegar will be revealed to be a rapist. A popular belief is that he didn’t rape Lyanna because “he doesn’t have the personality of a rapist.” But the reality is that there isn’t just one type of man who commits rape. Even men who appear “normal” or are even respected in society have done this. With Rhaegar, GRRM will be confronting this serious misconception and showing a realistic view of a rapist who is beloved within his community.
