It’s stuff like the way mothers are either dead or not even mentioned (Ned’s mother). Grrm is able to give a lot of informations about characters sometimes in tiny bit of dialogues so it makes this even more frustrating. Stuff like Sansa getting more criticism about how she acted as a child than some of the grown men of the story about things they did. Legends Are Born In March Vintage 2001 Limited Edition shirt Stuff like how people discuss the possible death of Daenerys or Cersei by people they love. For Daenerys it was already explained here, but the more i see discussions about how some people hope that Jaime will kill Cersei the more i find this uncomfortable. Not because of the theories themselves because they are pretty logical to discuss (because of the prophecy).

But there is something disturbing me in the pleasure some people can take discussing the idea of Cersei being killed by the one she loves, and the romantization of woman being killed by her partner. I like Sansa the best because I can see myself with 11 years dreaming about cute boys and saying foolish things.Legends Are Born In March Vintage 2001 Limited Edition shirt But it’s not okay to people to criticize an 11 year old girl to act like an 11 year old girl. Very Good point about the mothers, I had never noticed that. Like, from the top of my head I couldn’t say a single thing about Ned or Cat’s mother, not even their name (I remember Hoster’s wide was a Whent?).

I agree that Ygritte coercing Jon was bad. I think the reason it gets less attention is because Ygritte is not a major character and Jon falls in love with her later, but yeah it was obviously no consensual at first. It’s a similar situation with Daenerys and Drogo. However, my main point isnt that women don’t get defended or that men don’t get criticized because neither are true. It’s the disparity. There are definitely posts about how Robert and martial rape, Legends Are Born In March Vintage 2001 Limited Edition shirt but there are also many, many people arguing that it wasn’t that bad and that Cersei deserved it. And Cersei, despite being a horrible human being, did not deserve to be raped by her husband because two wrongs don’t make a right.
