Margaery Tyrell is a musician and everyone else is her instrument and she learned everything she knows from her grandmother Olenna. Cersei had one thing right — everything Margaery does, she does for a reason. And she knows exactly which strings to pluck to make everyone she needs to trust her, trust her. People fall at her feet because she weaponizes her niceness and her femininity and her ability to appear sweet and innocent. She says to Joffrey, “The subtleties of politics are often lost on me” while working with her family to plan his family’s overthrow and eventual demise. She talks about “her traitor husband” and his sexuality because she knows it will make Joffrey want to bed her, to make up for what Renly wouldn’t do. She feeds his thirst for blood and death and cruelty and understands that the idea of her being just as cruel turns him on; she encourages that, uses it to her advantage.
She uses everything to her advantage.
Margaery Tyrell will fuck your shit up, just the way her grandma taught her.

One of the things I find amusing about MRAs, is that nearly everything they advocate against is hypothetical.
For one, the world is not matriarchal. Females as a sex class don’t have the economic, political (or military), nor socio-cultural influence and power to wield any pervasive, extensive, collective power over males and/or men.
We don’t and never have.
Everything males, females, men, women, non-binary people experience can only fit within a context of male-dominance and male-power (i.e.: patriarchy), since it is the decisions of men in power that have shaped our world and how it functions.
They can whine and pine as much as they want about “men being infantilized and subjugated by women,” yet this has never existed on an institutionalized or systematic level.
