The dichotomy of feminine Sansa and her tomboy little sister, Arya, coupled with the modern tendency to champion a misunderstanding of feminism in the form of “strong women” only, erroneously causes many readers and viewers to assume that Sansa is somehow in the wrong from the very beginning. They view her through the misconception-colored glasses of “femininity=weakness”, and assume she is weak, soft, and shallow.
Despite the wishes of fanboys everywhere, Sansa Stark is here to stay, and may be one of the most important characters in political-fantasy to date. The young girl, trained in courtesy and domestic arts, began coming of age, gaining political awareness, and fighting for her own survival before many other characters in this series, and has the potential to become the most powerful player of “the game of thrones” in Westeros."
i’m really grateful that i’ve been educated on feminist issues and i’m really glad that i can identify ways in which the patriarchy is oppressive and find things problematic
but goddamn does it make things hard when i start taking things too seriously and start calling people out on things that aren’t even offensive or oppressive because i’ve just been trained to and fuck i take things too seriously and that fucks things up
