Support Hos: Game of Thrones

Support Hos: Game of Thrones | Vloasis sex corner | Scoop.it

Game of Thrones, HBO’s biggest show, is bringing the fantasy genre to the masses in a major way. Featuring a sprawling cast and storyline that’s been pared down from George R.R. Martin’s series A Song of Ice and Fire, it’s full of fantastic performances, high production values, international sets and scenery, and some of the most exciting and tense moments on television.

 

It is also filled with violence against women, particularly, the sex workers who inhabit the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.

Vloasis's insight:

A thoughtfully-written article coming from an angle you may not have considered: that of a sex worker. The struggle to be safe in that industry (if such a thing is ever possible) is something that Game of Thrones tends to sidestep by largely focusing on male-centric points of view.

Tullia d’Aragona

Tullia d’Aragona | Vloasis sex corner | Scoop.it

The existence of courtesans is a glaring refutation of neofeminist dogma about objectification, the eternal victimhood of whores, etc; the fact that the most celebrated, successful and highly-paid harlots of all time were often those who were educated and could match or surpass men in intellectual pursuits throws a huge spanner into the catechism that prostitution is a manifestation of male dominance over women, that our clients hate us, and so on.  Whenever possible, neofeminist historians deny that courtesans were prostitutes, pretend that accomplished women were not really courtesans, or describe them with circumlocutions like, “she chose to cohabit with several men who supported her financially.”  And when all else fails, they simply ignore them.  Fortunately neither male historians nor female ones with less parochial views feel the need to dissemble about such women, and among them Tullia d’Aragona is rightfully viewed as worthy of respect and study.
