What if Catelyn had been born male, and thus was the heir to Riverrun?
What if Robb had been a daughter, and so he would be the one to be betrothed to Joffrey? Would he be a dreamer like Sansa was brought up to be, or would he be more aggressive than her, still? How much of character is gender/sex in such a heavily sexist society as the ASOIAF world, and how much is based in other aspects?
Like, what if Daenerys and Viserys’s sexes were switched, how would that affect how they grew up if Viserys had not considered himself the king, but it was his younger sibling instead?
Cersei is often shown as being angry about the role her sex places her in in the books, so would she be happier and healthier-minded if she hadn’t
been oppressed into that role all her life? If Jaime had been born female, would he have turned out like Brienne or would he have accepted the typical Westerosi noblewoman role?
Hmm. What do you think?
