Oh god, I want to talk to you about ASOIAF, because my primary interest in the series is also a meta interest in Cersei and constructs of women who want power (and how she's pretty much the only one who explicitly recognizes restrictive gender roles and rebels against them, and also actively seeks power, and she's the EVIL one), but whenever I try to think about that series now, I have to curl up in a ball in the corner. Or think about fic that no one has yet written where Cersei SETS THEM ALL ON FIRE. Her narrative eventually felt so hostile to everything I like about her character in a way that I just couldn't take. It's just. ARGH. Wallowing in really obvious misogyny in such predictable ways. I can't even watch the show, despite hearing that Cersei is done with a lot more nuance (and LENA HEADEY), because it all just makes me so fucking tired.

Uh, whoops, sorry to get my issues all over your journal!

Yay you posting! :D?
