and im sorry i can’t shut up because
the men in this show are framed as wise martyrs who have to suffer the women’s violent irrationality
just look at the way saint tyrion stares at dany after their talk of succession where she scolds him
it’s like “woe is me, i am but a feeble wise male with a superior brain and excellent morals, while this savage is a female, doomed to ignorance and folly”
every argument between her and tyrion is framed to look like she’s a backwater hillbilly who is in over her head. and dany is by no means faultless, but THIS is not how you show her flaws, but undercutting her at every turn.
i won’t even go into how book!tyrion is far more irrational and bad-tempered than his show-counterpart. i just want to point out that this whole show is d&d’s escapist fantasy where they are the smartest, coolest, bestest super-dudes. not like in the real world where these impertinent women have a handful of rights and even gasp! opinions.
