There aren’t words enough to express how upset I am whenever I see people gleeful over what happened to Cersei in ADwD. Look, she’s not a good person. In fact she’s awful. She murdered her best friend as a child, ordered the murder of her husband’s bastards, ignored the sociopathy of her firstborn, and gave people to Qyburn to be experimented on (i.e. tortured). But what happened in ADwD wasn’t about any of those things.
What happened in ADwD was her being punished for being sexually active. She confessed only to having sex with various men after Robert’s death. Her “Walk of Shame” is punishment for a widow having sex after her husband’s death. It is slut-shaming taken to the extreme. And anybody who revels in that is gross.
I think when people revel in it they are missing the author’s intent. I don’t think GRRM wrote it to punish Cersei, he wrote it to show that all women, even the queen, were at risk of sexual violence. The fact that her uncle went along with it makes it especially cruel to me.
Absolutely. If I recall correctly Cersei told Sansa in one of their ACoK scenes that “a queen is only a woman.” I think Cersei’s whole story is meant to show that being a woman in a pseudo-medieval world sucks. She is the most powerful woman in Westeros - and even she can be a victim of domestic violence and marital rape, and be shamed by the clergy and mob for being a woman.
I would just like to say fuck you to everyone who made me feel inadequate growing up and ruining my self esteem for years. You all suck and I’m glad I don’t talk to any of you any more.
"I know you have it here, I bought it here before!" Well congratulations, it’s not here now.
When i was little i wanted to grow up to be a disney princess but im pretty sure i just became Yzma
