You know why Sophie Turner can say that? Because it wasn't real!
HBO's Game of Thrones deviated a bit from the books, with Sophie Turner's character Sansa Stark having a brutal wedding night with psycho-sociopath Ramsey Bolton. Fans were hoping Sansa would somehow avoid the brutality of the Boltons. I appreciate that people find this disturbing (since it was) but isn't the wide spread real rape and abuse of young girls by ISIS and Boko Haram even more disturbing than a fictionalized abusive marriage (that was done off camera)?

Amazed at the people moaning about Game of Thrones. If there’s a fictional rape to be angry about surely it’s the one in Rolling Stone.— Milo Yiannopoulos (@Nero) May 18, 2015

The Atlantic give a pretty good review (and critique) of this GoT episode
GoT did not glorify rape in this episode
Instapundit: Feminists need to get a grip and GoT is relentlessly sexist, but not against women
