“[Cersei] even decided to bust Brienne’s chops over Jaime - a man she no longer even seems to be interested in herself. It’s worth noting too that the series has landed down firmly on the “Brienne secretly loves Jaime” side of the fence, which weakens her character if you ask me.”
Really doe? Like one of the biggest reasons that Brienne followed Renly was because she was in love with him and he showed her kindness by dancing with her when no one else would. That is why she was a kick ass warrior and was willing to die for him. She was still kick ass in love with Renly. Why is it a stretch for her to fall in love with Jaime when he did much more for her than dancing? He saved her from being raped. He saved her from a bear by putting his body on the line. He told her things he never told another soul. And he’s fucking handsome as all get out too.
It doesn’t make her less kick ass to be in love with him. Just means she’s a human being with human feelings who has fallen in love.
I hate how so many people equate love with femininity and therefore weakness.
Or even more accurately with women who aren’t traditional love interests as not being as bad ass if they are in love or the insistence that this has to be a brotp because she is not traditionally beautiful. Meanwhile people eat up Sandor and Sansa like it going out of style. I’m not saying that as a insult to people who like that pairing. I’m saying that it is interesting that our reactions to the traditional beauty and the beast trope is acceptable when a male is the beast. But if a woman is less than a runway model they are seen as someone unworthy of romantic love.
How is it that in 2014, the only way a woman can be considered “strong” or “badass” is if she wholly and vehemently denies any sort of femininity, but heaven forbid that she dare to explore both her humanity and sexuality in a way that is her own. It almost reminds me of how the people in the books mock and disparage Brienne because she refuses to adhere to traditional conceptions of gender. Random strangers mock her for wearing armor and taking duty as a knight seriously, but then the one time she shows concern for the little orphans, Hyle mocks her by saying that she has a soft woman’s heart. It’s crazy to me that people in today’s world still subscribe to this ridiculous backward understanding of gender norms. I didn’t know there were still people who aren’t aware of the fact that gender is a fluid construct and that if she wants, she gets to be a beauty and a knight.
And yes to the beauty aspect of it! Ygritte is allowed to indulge in her sexuality with Jon and still remain a fierce free warrior and Cersei’s still lauded as the cunning queen of the universe after fucking her brother. They’re allowed that freedom, but heaven forbid Brienne have feelings or sexual thoughts because clearly her vagina will eat her swordhand and then she’ll definitely be less of a warrior.
