    Yes, but why is the slave society being depicted in Moroccoin the first place. I like GRRM but we need to take the discussion to the next level.

    If these sjw would stop being offended by everything the world would be a sweeter, better and happier place.

    too bad he NOW insists GOT and the white walkers are a metaphor for climate change. Not one such fucking thing of the like was uttered before the show started or even after the first couple of years. Fraud.

    They do realize that an author's fiction doesn't have to represent their personal views right? That's like saying that an author supports slavery if they wrote a book set in the Roman Empire or in antebellum America. It's called worldbuilding. Obviously what we see/read have to reflect the views of the presented society. Otherwise it's just telling you it's there but it's not really there. You also have to think that majority of the time (save for a few exceptions) the nudity wasn't used for fanservice and served a purpose. Ex: Dany getting up naked from a bath isn't so we can admire her breasts but for us to see how she's unafraid of Daario and confident in dealing with him. Or the prostitutes, whose purpose is to support the characterization of the characters that go into brothels.

    Really sexism and racism in GoT? This is a fantasy story that took great inspiration from ancient history and medieval times, ancient cultures were openly sexual, it shouldn't be surprising if you know even a hint of history. There again racism was another thing of ancient civilization. Though from the sounds of it people are just looking for issues to bitch and moan about... So to the uncultured swine that know nothing, please sit down and shut up.

    Jesus effing Christ!!!!! This is how women have been treated throughout history. His masterpiece was an ancient fantasy piece. Fuck ppl. I’m a progressive liberal, but this is ridiculous!!!! GRR Martin... don’t give two fucks about this. Your writing, and ability to tell a magnificent story. That ability is so much more than these little fragile minds

  • Fernanda Goncalves Oliveira Braga

    So he is suposed to make super women, with fake powers forcing situations you know It is fake (would never happen like that, medieval mind is ancient for a reason). And so the same as to force fake empowerment to diferent races just to sastify people that Just want to make mouse and don't care about the story.

    I don’t understand why “racism” and “sexism” are an issue in fiction and I think when you do focus on that it takes away from the stories that could be told it shouldn’t even be a consideration on what color a character is or if their a man or woman if it really doesn’t effect the outcome of their character arc or the whole story as a whole

    The lady talking is having a hard time speaking her thoughts coherency and without pausing mid-sentence a lot. This tells me she has not thought through her ideas and opinions and is making them up as she goes. I know this from experience because the same thing happens to me when i don't think what i want to say through. That tells me this entire thing is a sham and BS.

    Interesting conversation, I’m not entirely sure where I stand on it. On one hand, the quality of a piece should not be affected by forced representation, but on the other it’s important for all groups of people to see themselves as others (straight white men) have for so long...

    Complaining about sexual and gender representation and nudity in a work of fiction primarily targeted towards young adults... The feminists and the rest of the she snowflakes must be bored again. What did they run out of bullshit to bitch about regarding the porn industry. Why can't people just be mature and say "yep that's a penis" or "yep those are breasts" and move on with their lives? Why are you people so offended when someone else has a bigger cock or more shapely tits than you do. You're insecurities shouldn't be concern anyone but yourselves and if you're that pathetically self conscious than you should avoid adult media in general.

    why is it when woman get super offended are the ones that seem to have short dyed hair and are overweight? The skinny hot young ones do it because its a trent/political base to make a career out of. Its not taken seriously unless it gains money. We all know how well money and woman mix.

    a great example of people seeing what they want to see
    a feminist will see sexist stuff. a racist will see racist stuff. a homophobe will see gay stuff. a zealot will see anti-religious stuff.
    the only thing these dumb accusations shed light upon is the dumb mind of the accuser
    i wonder what kind of questions would've been asked in a different age.. today it's WHITE MEN MUST DIE! last generation it was SATANIC WORSHIP! a generation before that, it was ALL COMMIES MUST DIE! before that, it was...

  • Hugh Cipher

    GRR Martin is a White male raised in Western culture so errrr surprise he either consciously or unconsciously introduces racial & sexual tropes & symbolism in his material ie: an army full of Black & Brown guys with no dicks (trust me there is no example in history of a "literally" dickless army)
    Nethertheless Martin's material possesses none of the direct racism present in Lovecraft,Robert E Howard, Edgar Rice Boroughs nor dare i say Tolkien(gasp)

  • Alex Moore
    Alex Moore Month ago +1

    So his work was criticized because apparently it is racist for a white person to free non-whites.
    1. These days whites are criticized for anything, if you help non-whites, you are racist, if you don't help non-whites, you are racist, if you help whites, you are racist, the word "racist" has been used so much it's lost almost all meaning.
    2. Dany being a white person freeing white and non-white slaves has actually nothing to do with race, since in this time period race wasn't an issue in most parts of the world.
    These white-guilt libtards gotta bring racism and sexism everywhere

    You can tell this lady is feminist and also lbgtq+ category. Only people in these categories think they can argue with people when it's not even their business. I am a fan of GOT but I didn't like the ending. When I see this type of ignorance, it makes me mad.

  • cole turner

    I'm all for equality. But not everything needs to be equal all the time. A writer could write a book with all white men, no women or other races. It shouldn't be shouted at, thats just the story the writer wanted to write. You don't need to include every gender, sexuality and minority in everything, and at the same time make them all equal to each other. That would be boring.

    1st rape does happen, so why can't it be in a fiction book. So why write it out like it's nonexistent. Second, I just talked to a friend about the race issue. He is white so of course his main characters are white. You write what you know, and it reflects. There's something I read about this, and it makes sense.

    I'm actually really becoming a fan of George as like, a person, not just his work, because hes funny and clever but at the same time seems rather level headed and almost always a seems to know the right reaction, response or lack of. Like a really good example is when he said something about how "if we have alot of brown people do we stop hiring them and hire white people to even it out" and someone, I'm not sure which, said "brown people?" Almost as if to provoke George to have to defend saying that, and George completely ignored it and finished making his point. He is really good at calculating what to say or not say and still be charismatic in the midst of a topic he knows alot of people are sensitive about.
