Why D&D can’t write woman part one(x)

Show!Melisandre

  • is reduced to the depressing stereotype of “strange foreign seductress with evil morals”.
  • mock davos for his son’s death.
  • taunts davos and pretty much blames the battle of blackwater on him.
  • has an evil vagina.
  • is reduced to nothing more than a nice ass and a mad woman.
  • seduces stannis.
  • actually gets naked at all apart from the birthing scene.
  • pretty much only used to be a sexual object or an antagonistic socio-path.
  • manipulates selyse into madness.
  • taunts maester cressen, and gives him a smug look as he dies.
  • is shown as “evil” when allowing people to burn, while daenerys is shown as a “hero” when doing so.

Book!Melisandre

  • never mocks maester cressen, is never cruel to him.
  • knows that cressen wants to poison her, but tells him that he doesn’t have to, giving him an outlet and a choice.
  • is friendly with selyse, but doesn’t manipulate her into madness.
  • doesn’t manipulate selyse into burning her own brother.
  • is only implied to have slept with stannis.
  • offers her condolences to davos for his loss.
  • actually respects ser davos.
  • her drive of helping stannis and saving the realm is a lot more proufound.
  • is much more than a sex object with questionable morals.
  • is regarded as a very beautiful woman, but not a sex object.
  • makes devan stay at the wall, cause she wishes not for davos to lose any more sons.
  • doesn’t care that davos never swears to harm her.
  • is the only one to visit davos when he is imprisoned.
  • is actually a human being, with human emotions.
  • doesn’t blame davos for stannis’ loss at the blackwater, cause davos was not the once to convince stannis not to bring her along.

Yes because jaime would totally rape cersei

the jaime that  felt sick at the sound of hearing rhaella targaryen raped

the jaime that also felt sick after he heard of ellia and her babies being brutally murdered

THE JAIME THAT GOT HIS HAND CUT OFF SAVING HIS FRIEND FROM BEING RAPED

THE JAIME THAT SAID HE WOULD RATHER DIE IF HE WAS A WOMAN THAN LET SOMEONE RAPE HIM

THAT JAIME

"It’s like presenting a dog with a sirloin steak and expecting him not to eat it."

Well.

I presented my two dogs with an actual sirloin steak, then told them no.

Woofles didn’t even approach it when I set it down, as I hadn’t told him it was okay to do so.
Quinn approached it, completely ready to take it from the plate (as her manners are not yet as good as Woofles’ manners), was told no, and immediately backed off.

When Woofles heard the no, he turned away as well because he knew that steak was not for him to eat.

Notice how they didn’t ‘argue’, didn’t take it anyway, didn’t get aggressive, didn’t beg, or didn’t try to somehow persuade me that they should be able to have it.

They were told no, they backed off.

So, essentially, if you use that analogy to excuse rape, you’re saying you have less self control and fewer basic social manners than my two dogs.

That also probably means you should be neutered and kept on a leash.
