You can’t just accept things, Oliver. If I had accepted my life, I would be a cocktail waitress in Vegas like my mother, and I never would have gone to college, and I never would have moved a thousand miles away to work at Queen Consolidated, and I never would have  b e l i e v e d  some crazy guy in a hood when he told me I could be more than just some IT girl. 

To be honest with you, I’m more of a girl’s girl. I’m much more comfortable being around other girls.

"Lying to him and manipulating him and kind of ruining his entire life in the process is so much worse then fucking him. And if you draw the line at sex then I kind of have to ask you to look at your priorities. Why is sex the taboo in this situation? Is it because its genuinely worse then everything else shes done or is it because our misogynistic society has given you the impression that you can judge how and when a women chooses to have it?" —ritabites

Why are we so sure that Carrie will ruin his life?

Carrie was heavily instrumental is ruining Brody’s life. Is it because he was a terrorist, so  he deserved it? Do some people deserve having their lives ruined more than others?

Everything Carrie did last night was a new low—her lying to him about the visa/passport thing SO EASILY made my stomach churn—but I’m sick of people saying that Carrie’s use of sex of tactic makes her a worse person than if she didn’t use it at all.

Well first off she was complicit in the murder of his entire family. So that’s kind of ruined his life already.

Now, he is being tricked into aiding a CIA investigation in a plot that ties Pakistan intelligence to a terrorist organization. I can’t see a way of him coming out alive from this if either of them found out. He’s already been threatened and that was just  over a video. I think getting him killed or tortured would fall under “life ruining” surely?

(The main problem with this situation is more the lying that is involved in this - if he choose to take the risk to uncover the truth of what happened to his family then I would be ok with it but her taking the choice away from him is wrong)

As far as I am concerned Brody’s life was ruined the moment he agreed to the suicide vest. And as far as I can remember when Carrie recruited him he was aware of the dangers and was given a choice. Both times.

Anyway that wasn’t even what my point was. What concerns me is not Carries use of tactics but the way people (not you) react to them. The fact that people place the use of Sex as more morally wrong then things like lying or risking someones life without their knowledge, or killing their entire family - makes me side eye people.

Its an incredibly useful tactic in establishing intimacy and trust and it doesn’t really hurt him in the long run. If anything I think this is her least damaging technique so far.

I find it especially ironic because its the same fandom that overlooked the sexual assault of Quinn are now complaining about the age difference and power dynamics between Carrie/Aayan. 

It’s seem like yesterday that these two got together but next june will be 10 years that they have been together..

it has always been forever, for me, Sassenach.
