I ADMIT: In my reading/watching, they kind of are. I have been skipping/skimming most of the men bits.

I am actually largely spoiled for large bits of character plots because I could never sign up for a world that misogynistic without needing to prepare myself for it. Even so? I am constantly surprised by the misogyny.

I honestly don't know if I'll be returning to it now. Maybe the show, but the books have made me very iffy on how often the women are filtered through men's POV. At this point, my primary investment is a meta-level interest in portrayal of Cersei in the two different versions and what that says about fiction's relationship with women who like power.
