We're talking about gender roles and feminism in Game of Thrones this week on The How to Be Awesome Podcast. How is gender viewed in Westeros? How would characters claim their gender identity in modern times? Let's get into it.
We proudly host our podcast with Buzzsprout.
Renee is finally leaving her house and eating Cholesterol Sandwiches. Louise can't be bothered to make proper mashed potatoes but comes up with an awesome solution nonetheless.
And they're back with more raging feminism. Strap in for some chat on feminism, gender politics, and gender and sexual identity in Game of Thrones. It's pretty cool to be gay or bisexual in Westeros, but gender roles are very rigidly set. From religion to politics, the spectrum of male and female is highly delineated. They discuss Arya, Sansa, Cersei, Yara, Brienne, Sam, and more. Oh, and is the Game of Thrones finale anti-feminist?
Louise is releasing guilt around spending money, and Renee lets go of comparison and impatience. Renee gets to see family and starts watching His Dark Materials. Louise gets a new freezer and miraculously manifests a new kitchen floor.
