I like him.
what are you talking about the women characters in GRRM are so one-dimensional.
if you mean “I write women well” to be “I make them not actually stereotypically weak and shit” yeah ok but like literally I can describe every single woman in a song of ice and fire in literally two words.
Brienne of Tarth: conflicted tomboy
arya: batman tomboy
sansa: shit happens
cersei: Incestuous Megalomaniac
cat: Mother Cassandra
that Wildling chick: Celtic Pocahontas
Dany: Dragonlady Imperialist
her maidservants: lesbian experiments
…do I need to keep going here or what?
yeah Martin can be super misogynistic but the female characters of game of thrones are actually very well rounded. Brienne of Tarth really isn’t conflicted about anything at all, Arya is hardly batman and Sansa is “shit happens”? WTF? Have you read the books like at all?
Cause that would make sense who ever is directing the tv show has done a shit job of fleshing out its female characters.
The female characters are not at all one-dimensional… That person doesn’t know what they are talking about.
I feel a lot of the time that the woman characters are actually more complicated/interesting than the men? And that might be a symptom of a lot of the overall story appearing to be shaped as a deconstruction of the chivalrous masculine ideal that we associate with the classical mode of fantasy characters?
To answer their question, yes, they do need to keep going here because none of those descriptors come close to capturing how complicated some of these women are. Though I guess anyone who would simplify a girl to a term that qualifies her in comparison to a boy can’t do much better.
I can describe probably every character in the world in two words, but that doesn’t make them one dimensional. Like what even? That doesn’t prove anything.
