Mancheeze Takes On Game of Thrones

The leading women of Game of Thrones

The Autumn, my favourite season, will be here before long and this Autumn I am taking on Game of Thrones. It’ll be the Radfem Edition of Game of Thrones! I’ve read the books and faithfully watched HBO’s interpretation of George RR Martin’s story ‘A Song of Ice and Fire.’ We’re still waiting for Martin to finish the books as HBO is currently working on Season 7 to be aired in June 2017.

I will host this series on Youtube. Here’s my channel so you can subscribe and not miss an episode. Since there are 60 episodes so far there will be 60 videos.

Game of Thrones is set in a typical Patriarchy, with male rulers at the top and women at the bottom. Martin has put female characters front and center in leadership roles but the entire story revolves around a man.

Jon Snow as King of Westeros aka ‘How Men Think the Story Will Definitely End.’ Complete with penis sword and a wolf

Jon Snow is the typical masculine hero trope (with phallic sword) and it’s sort of a rags-to-riches, bastard-to-noble type story. However, there’s also his female opposite, Daenerys Targaryen, who is born of nobility but was denied her birthright and spends the show trying to become Queen of Westeros. Of course, in a patriarchy, women are seen as objects to be possessed through marriage even if they are of noble birth and Daenerys is currently imposing this condition of marriage slavery on herself. If she wants to rule Westeros she has to marry a powerful man. Women truly don’t get a break, even if they’re noble, powerful, possess dragons, armies, and top aides.

Game of Thrones is a typical white male fantasy story even though there are a few noble women who take leading roles. Most of the women are cast as prostituted women, complete with male abuse thrown at them from every direction. Men get to sword fight as equals but women get subjugated not only by the noble Kings but by all males in society. Women are property of all men in a patriarchy.

Game of Thrones shows grown men sexualizing a female child, more than once. This is crucial and I’ll be breaking those scenes down very critically in the videos. When I first saw those scenes I got extremely angry because even though Game of Thrones is a fantasy story, it’s a human story and only men are human in a patriarchy.

I’ve said previously that HBO pornified Game of Thrones. Gail Dines has talked a lot about how mainstream television is like watching softcore pornography. This is so true of Game of Thrones.

It’s with great pleasure I do this video series. I hope you’ll join me on Youtube. The first video will come out some time in the Fall, most likely September.

  1. Sounds like good times. I’ll be listening. White pervos always claim the show, but I feel it illustrates patriarchy in a nutshell. The pervs don’t get this. In the latest season, the female characters take a bite out of the sausage party. I can’t say it hasn’t been satisfying. I’m sure some poor slobs are butt hurt by this and wondering what the hell happened. I hope it pissed them off.

    • It’s already pissing them off. The way they talk about the next Season is ‘ the girls are going to start mischief.’ It’s the whole ‘the women are gonna fuck it all up for muh dick’ crap.

      The males are angry at one of the actresses already because they know she’s the smart one that saved Jon this past season. They chided her at a Con. They chided the actress, not the character. Idiots.

      • Yeah. The showrunners decided not to suck up to all the neckbeards. It’s glorious. The female characters will dominate. It will bum neckbeards out because they watch violent porn ALL day long and nothing else registers with them. They expect to be catered to. Well, the GoT showrunners have something else in mind.

  2. Hello, Mancheeze. I don’t know if you are aware of a woman who calls herself Shoe0nHead, but she has become a real problem on the Internet lately in regards to misogyny on YouTube, and it’s getting out of control.

    This is a woman who has amassed a YouTube following of almost 400,000 subscribers, and her hatred of women and Feminism surpasses even that of Karen Straughan’s. And to make matters worse she is a “trans-activist”.

    Here is a link to her video section, and you can feel free to delete this link (or even my comment as a whole) to avoid attracting the flock of woman-haters onto your blog.

    I have already been blocked from Shoe0nHead’s channel for defending women and challenging her trans-bullshit. She is a miserable woman who loves the attention she receives from even the more miserable males who kiss her ass because she validates their hatred of women.

    • Yeah, I know about her and she’s useless. She’s doing this for male attention and her big fall is inevitable. She’s not healthy in herself and will pay a large price for this behaviour.

  3. I very much look forward to this! ! I’m glad you’ve read the books too, because even though they’re better than the show, they’re not the feminist masterpieces I’ve heard some libfems proclaim. This show has too much cultural impact and it really needs a radfem analysis. Can’t wait!
