“You sound like a bloody woman”
except brienne would never say that
brienne has nothing but the greatest respect for women
brienne who actually compared dying in childbirth to dying in battle and lamented that no one sings of those women
CAN WE JUST NOT, WRITERS
UGH GOD this makes me even more upset than “Most girls are stupid.”
I mean it’s just pointless rationalizing at this point to actually give the writers any credit for this kind of reasoning, but at least Arya, like it or not, does sometimes have insulting thoughts about typical women. When she’s told about how Ashara Dayne threw herself off a tower and killed herself she’s quick to dismiss her as pathetic (which I’ve always found beautifully ironic considering one of the rare examples of Sansa acting exactly like Arya would in her place is when she was going to shove Joffrey off that tower along with her).
But no, not in a million years would this come from Brienne, who we’ve generally seen able to connect with other women more easily than with men even if connecting with anyone doesn’t come easily to her. And these words would mean nothing to Jaime so pshh.
Like, thanks writers for summing up his growth here as “Jaime learns to man up and stop being such a spoiled priss.” Thanks writers for having a WOMAN suggest that a WOMAN doesn’t know anything about misfortune and suffering in a world like this. Really good job.
