That's pretty much the only way to make me dislike a female character.

Ditto. Well, that and child abuse. So yeah *sigh*

And I agree, I blame GRRM more than I blame Cersei...but on the other hand Cersei's character is so drowned in the genderfail that I can't see her as ever existing outside of it, like I can with many problematic characters. It ruins her for me.

As far as I have read, Cersei is the only female character who actually seeks power that's outside her gender confines, and she is evil.

Yes, and it is completely frustrating. It's why I can't really enjoy the series, because while it's supposed to show how patriarchy and feudalism ruin society for everyone, it's just too much for me to handle.

she WANTED power first, and then realized that she couldn't have it as a woman

That's true, and I loved her for it, but then she went to the extreme of actively hating other women and hating being a woman. And that's...not the same.
