Or maybe he is an old asshole. You know those who are responsible for everything that’s wrong with the country right now? The Fox news brain washed segregationists that are still alive?? People underestimate how strong a lot of old men are, all the time. I can remember a great, great uncle, he was like, 85 when I was a kid in the 80s… he was a scary old man… and if you sassed him even a little? Buddy, he’d snatch your arm and jerk you toward him and give you The Talk about not sassing elders that would scare the shit out of you. I sassed him maybe twice in my life. Walk Away I Am A Grumpy Old Man I was Born in November T-Shirt Both times I was shocked at how fast and how strong he was. I cant emphasize how much I agree! Although Ill be honest, I’m not sure where the latter half of your post is coming from – I haven’t seen a lot of feminist criticism of Dany as a character, only of the way her chapters are written – which includes a lot of fair criticism, for the record. Martin is good at writing women, but he is far from perfect.

The guy in the vid? Maybe Korea, maybe Nam… but he walks very upright. Shoulders back, but his jaw is forward, like age has bent his back a little. Still – his general posture reminds me of friends of ours who are, or were, in the military or highway patrol. That shoulders back, head up, back ramrod straight thing stays with them for life. The youngest people who fought in WWII are in their 90’s. This guy is far younger than that. Could be a Vietnam vet though. Remember, he could murder you in the street with a dozen witnesses, and by the time he goes through the trial and conviction process a life sentence to him mayWalk Away I Am A Grumpy Old Man I was Born in November T-Shirt be 1 or 2 years….. Yes, Dany has always been my favorite, and she is definitely one of Martin’s best written female characters, who can be as naive and vulnerable as a girl, as brave and smart as a woman, and as fierce and powerful as a man.

The show implied a lot of parallels between Dany and Stannis, so I’m guessing Stannis having a similar fate has at least been considered. Also every book has pretty much been a tragedy. GRRM made it pretty clear early on that anyone could die. I’d say the “groundbreaking” part is that Dany could be both an antagonist and the mvp of the story. Dying for a greater cause would not be unacceptable for male character. Dying to get a magical sword (a fighting chance for the others) isn’t that different from “I’ll stay back and buy you time”. While people in here may not like Dany due to things like sexism(I wouldn’t say it’s the majority, but let’s be real that Walk Away I Am A Grumpy Old Man I was Born in November T-Shirt probably a good amount of it, mostly on a subconcious level), because they favor other characters as rulers or just can’t relate to her, the tumblr fandom has created a bunch of “woke” reasons to hate her with the idea that she’s a problematic white savior colonizer, and it mostly comes from Sansa fans(or rather, Jonsa shippers… Yeah, that’s a big fandom on tumblr and twitter lol).
