Game of Thrones, Feminism, and Equal Responsibility

So I watched the game of thrones S8Ep2 I couldn't help but notice the feminist messages during the conversation between two strong women, Sansa & Daenerys. Although that was before the big question was asked lol. See let's face it Women need to unite and stop the hate. But another angle I'd like to see it from is, If Sansa were a man and she was giving Daenerys such attitude, it would have been a case of "because she is a woman" but the truth is she doesn't trust Daenerys enough. She could be a tyrant like her father. we need to agree that it's natural for humans to hate on one another for their own reasons and this has nothing to do with the fact that you're a woman or a man.

Also how Brienne of tarth was knighted by Jamie. Brienne has stood out in the entire series, she is brave, strong, loyal, she has fought for good and most importantly she has a good heart. So I see no reason why she can't be a knight. But society and tradition hold her down. We've designed a society of toxic masculinity, and the worst part about it is that it's not just bad for women but for men as well. And That's exactly what philosophical feminism stood for...All people, regardless of gender, should be afforded the same rights, respect & privileges. Not the crap "hate on men agenda" tribal feminism is pushing

According to Mark Manson
"Once a philosophy goes tribal, its beliefs no longer exist to serve some moral principle, but rather they exist to serve the promotion of the group"

A lot of sensitization needs to be done among women, about the issue of equal responsibility. My cousin, Jon Snow once had a conversation with his girlfriend on why he thinks she should go through personal development and how she should read books so she can be a better person. But most of the time when they have that conversation she says he is trying to control her. People control people it's not about men trying to control women or vise visa. If you don't stop being mediocre people will trample on you.

A lot of women aren't ready to give what it takes like Brienne of tarth. As we can see in the entire series of game of thrones the only woman worthy of being a knight is just Brienne and that can be closely liked to our present society. We have very few female surgeons. We never barely see female football coaches coaching male teams but we see a lot of male coaches in women teams.
