asked: "Yeah, it's kinda stupid that women get stereotyped like the soft, cute lovin' frail girls who will faint if they see blood. In ASoIaF, women have the toughest roles and the most intense and complex stories. One can say that they are the main characters in some way. The books are way more clear on this, because the series, despite being pretty well adapted, have their evident flaws. ASoIaF is for people who want a mental and emotional treat, not for any specific gender."
I’ve always liked how the first season has personalities of people like Ned and Robert, Viserys and Drogo pushing people around and by the end of the first book, they’re dead. Enter the women. It’s a neat subversion.
What’s with this about Game of Thrones not appealing to females? It was originally my old English Teacher (A woman) who suggested I read the books and my girlfriend who introduced me to the show. I don’t think gender has anything to do with it, if you like epic fantasty, you’ll probably like this series regardless of your gender. Mhm.
Yeah I don’t know, it simple so simple and obvious. We all like a variety of stuff, but people cling defensively to their stereotypes. It’s easier than thinking, I guess.
