….i read one too many of those ‘sansa should be grateful to marry Tyrion!’ posts and i was feeling a little sarcastic.
The actual lines from A Storm if Swords. I don’t know how D&D read this and got “let’s change this to ‘you sound like a bloody woman.’”

I often suggest to people that they watch Game of Thrones instead of reading the books, because when you see Cersei in the show it’s just like, “God what a bitch,” but when you read her chapters in the books it’s all, “This is the Antichrist [FUMING VIOLENT HATRED]”. Lena Headey is an awesome actress, and she pulls the character off beautifully, but there’s just some shit in the books — when you’re inside Cersei’s head — that’s just AUUUAFUAUGUUGUAUGAUGUGGGHHHHH.
So I love when people watch the show, and hate her but kinda sympathize, AND THEN THEY GO AND READ THE BOOKS AND THEIR ENTIRE UNDERSTANDING OF REALITY CRUMBLES AROUND THEM, AS THEY ARE BROUGHT TO NEW HEIGHTS OF VEHEMENT HATRED.
the inside of cersei’s head is beautiful (◕‿◕✿)
I think they just got confused and meant Tyrion’s chapters.
I saw this today on Fandom!Secrets
and I feel it’s finally laying out something that’s been bothering me about the treatment of women in ASOIAF, and I can finally put my finger on why: because rape is used as a gendered assault. Quite apart from the myriad problems it has with regards to female rape, its also ignores the reality of male rape. It’s really just sexism’ing it all up in here.
The OP is making a really good point here about men, the military and prison.

The warrior queen who conquered Dorne.
…with rape jokes.
“If the city falls, these women will be in for a bit of a rape,”
“If anyone dies with a clean sword, I’ll rape his fucking corpse!”
What is wrong with me?!
Angry girls on the internet are coming
Pffft, they came and went. Maybe someday, us feminists will learn that attacking other people’s brand of feminism isn’t getting us anywhere.
“Other people’s brand of feminism”
On what planet, in what universe, is it feminist to laugh at harmful rape jokes…or laugh at the threat of rape when it’s obviously not a joke. How is “if the city falls, these women will be raped” funny to you? Rape as a war tactic is something that actually happened in wartime and something that still happens. It’s severely traumatic for survivors of war.
You’re joking and laughing at an epidemic, something that affects 1 in 5 women. You’re joking about violent crimes that are difficult to prosecute because of rape culture, under which these so-called “jokes” are classified. You’re expecting people to laugh along with you, because you find someone else’s degradation, humiliation and trauma funny.
How fucking dare you sit there and behave as though people replying to you—calmly explaining why this shit isn’t funny—are attacking your brand of special snowflake feminism where you get to laugh about something that degrades and traumatises people? How dare you behave like you’re so enlightened because you can laugh about rape and those who can’t are obviously the ones doing something wrong.
You act as if I volunteered to go.
my blog was missing Sansa and Margaery ;-;
