My cousin says it is, but I guess I don't see it. We're in the middle of an argument about this.
Eh I think there are more strong female characters than most shows.
It takes place within a misogynistic society but that doesn't necessarily mean the series itself is
This. Also one of the main characters is turning that society on its head. Dracarys motherfuckers
thanks for using big words that I have to look up
yes it is but it's set in a world that is
It's quite the opposite, in my opinion. Girls run that fucking world. The guys are just running around fucking up perfectly good plans and being like "hurrrr boobs."
You could argue that it's almost too pro-women; the female characters in positions of power keep making mistake after mistake without truly paying for it. D&D themselves have done some stupid misogynistic shit for shock value but the series itself feels about as philogynous as it can be given its setting.
Your cousin is dumb and should be disowned
Cersei is forced to walk across a city completely naked. That would never happen to a man in this society no matter how they broke the law.
Catelyn breaks the law and she may not pay for it in the way treason normally would but she is mostly shunned from then on and Robb even makes plans to send her to Seaguard, basically as a captive, before they go to the Twins.
The world that was created has misogyny built into it, but that doesn't mean the show is misogynist. At it's core, the show is most certainly anything but misogynist.
You're spitting facts
Now, what does this have to do re: the show being misogynistic?
This is all i was addressing sorry for the confusion. Though I do think D&D walk a tight rope and can expose women unevenly. But that's just me.
At the beginning of the season, the same people who made Cersei do her walk made the High Septon walk through the city naked while getting whip[ed...
The show has had some purely misogynist moments played purely for shock value that weren't in the books and could have easily done without. Ramsey raping Sansa comes to mind.
I think it's more pro women as well
Wat. Lets review
-You have an elderly woman who is shown to be one of the most cunning characters in the show who orchestrated a killing of a king and got away with it
-You have a young girl/central character who is running around murdering all the men who have wronged her
-You have a girl who is the daughter of a ruler that has infinitely more respect as a military leader than does her brother
-You have a woman as a knight who routinely beats men's asses in combat
-You have a central character who started without anything and has basically done nothing but grab the world by the balls as she's made her way across the globe
This show goes out of its goddamn way to promote powerful women
Who is this?
Theon's sister. Forget what they name her in the show.
and you have a woman who has sex with her brother all the while c uck-olding a king
Yara, on the show...posts are "Well struck Dog" as well...
