It's a TV show. It's not real. Settle down.

I could settle down if I were at all unsettled. But you make the claim that somehow a character being gay makes it difficult for you to accept them as a badass. I made a counterclaim, respond to that or not. Don't deflect by imagining me being irate.

Renly was a ******* to me.

However, Oberyn is a badass to me no matter how much he wants the c0ck.
Same goes for Lafayette character from True Blood or Mickey from Shameless.

You see, I want to get behind the reasoning for this. Is Martin a homosexual? Could be. Why make the guy a c0cksucker?? There is no need to infuse that into the storyline. We've seen it before with Renly, but Martin goes out of his way to include that.

As a straight man who grew up watching badasses like Arnold, JCVD, Stallone, Mr. T, Tom Selleck, Scott Baio, etc., I just can't picture a badass with homosexual tendencies?? Can you imagine if in the Predator scene where Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenneger) meets up with Dillon (Carl Weathers) if instead of shaking hands they had kissed instead? Or grabbed each others c0cks??

So you don't see Omar as a badass?

Yeah. He rips and runs. He is arguably the most popular character on the show.

The point is homosexuality has very little to do with being a badass or not. But if you are living in a world where it is looked down upon and you stay true to yourself and come out then I think that is admirable at least. With Oberyn he is basically doing that, he is taking what he wants despite the consequences or attitudes towards him.

The stuff with Daenarys(sp?) has always been a bit of a weak point of the show(relatively speaking)....hope she's not detached from Westeros too much longer.

A series with unsavory things like children being murdered, cannibals, slavery, mutilation, rape, incest, amongst a million other unsavory things....and you really choose to complain about a character being gay?

No matter how hard I try, I just can't get into this show for some reason.
