Why do they always talk about "raping and pillaging?" I mean, are those things equal at all? Isn't "pillaging" just kind of medieval littering?

ETA: apparently "pillaging" means stealing, which makes sense, but I still think scenes of peeople stealing stuff are probably less troubling than the other thing.

ETA2: This came about because someone on the thread about the "censorship" of the transphobic video on HuffPo said that "GoT features scenes of rape and pillaging" and I thought "nobody cares about pillaging."
