Feminism Game of Thrones

Garden of bones

‘Garden of Bones’ is the fourth episode of the second season of HBO’s medieval fantasy television series Game of Thrones, where feminist messages continue. Almost at the beginning of the episode Robb encounters field nurse Talisa, who cuts off a survivor’s leg after the battle to keep it from gangrene. When I was a kid I watched movies on the big screen like Gone with the Wind where the doctors who cut off legs after violent battles were men, and women didn’t have the stomach for it.

That woman, Talisa, would seal Robb’s fate in the penultimate episode of the next season because he would marry her, breaking the pact he had with Lord Walder Frey to marry his beautiful daughter, who unlike non-Aryan Talisa is completely white. It doesn’t matter to spoil forward to the end of the next season, where you can see where Robb’s stupidity of messing with a non-Aryan commoner after being engaged to a beautiful Aryan of noble birth came to be. What matters is to denounce the feminist bombardment with which Game of Thrones overwhelms us.

I could even mention my family. As I tell in Whispering Leaves, in his capacity as a surgeon in the royalist army, my Catalan ancestor came to New Spain to join forces that fought against the Mexican insurgents, made up mostly of non-whites. That’s true history: a male serving as a field surgeon for real-history battles.

Worst of all in the HBO episode is that with the dead still on the battlefield Talisa lectures Robb, the King of the North, because this little woman dislikes war. Total surrealism. This sort of thing—a commoner scolding a king right after a bloody battle—never happened in the Middle Ages or in later times, as in the wars of independence in the Americas.

In the episode Talisa continues to argue with the King of the North in a derogatory way, and Robb is not offended.

What madness! I don’t want to read how those passages appear in Martin’s novel because Martin is also a feminist, although the pair of Jews who produced the episode exacerbated Martin’s feminism on the television version.

Never did women speak like this, especially after a bloody war with streams of blood from the dead still running in the field. Why white men haven’t rebelled, since 2012, with lots of negative reviews after scenes like this?

In the last bad message of the episode a black man is shown as a powerful guy, this time in Qarth, ‘the Greatest City that Ever Was or Will Be’ located in the brutal desert called Garden of Bones. This black man opens the gates of Qarth (pic above) to the wandering Dany and her followers, who would have died in the desert had it not been for this negro.
