Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) joined Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) in a video critique of the finale of the popular fantasy show “Game of Thrones,” and they concluded it just wasn’t feminist enough.
“I feel like we were getting so close to having this ending with just women running the world,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
She added that the writers decided that a strong female character would be “too emotional” to lead, and complained, “it’s like, ugh, this was written by men!”
Warren, a presidential candidate, agreed and went on to offer other potential outcomes to the show that would have ended with women in power that she would have preferred.
“I was disappointed,” added Ocasio-Cortez. “We need to get some feminist analysis up in HBO.”
“They need some help on this,” agreed Warren.
“They do, they really do,” laughed Ocasio-Cortez.
Many fans of the mega-hit fantasy show that aired for eight years registered disappointment in the ending, but few did so because of the lack of feminist agenda in the show.
One website offered a “specialised Game of Thrones counselling service” in order to help distressed fans of the show deal with the disappointment of the finale.
Actors from the show, on the other hand, were very dismissive of fans with complaints about the finale.
Here’s the video of their feminist review:
