The dichotomy of feminine Sansa and her tomboy little sister, Arya, coupled with the modern tendency to champion a misunderstanding of feminism in the form of “strong women” only, erroneously causes many readers and viewers to assume that Sansa is somehow in the wrong from the very beginning. They view her through the misconception-colored glasses of “femininity=weakness”, and assume she is weak, soft, and shallow.
Despite the wishes of fanboys everywhere, Sansa Stark is here to stay, and may be one of the most important characters in political-fantasy to date. The young girl, trained in courtesy and domestic arts, began coming of age, gaining political awareness, and fighting for her own survival before many other characters in this series, and has the potential to become the most powerful player of “the game of thrones” in Westeros.

“To make that decision for a character four seasons in, we didn’t want to it lightly and we wanted to do it respectfully and honestly and realistically. Charlotte has always thought her character was gay. From the very first season, she’d always say, “Is she gay?” We had it in our heads too. It’s not something we’re going to shy away from in season five. We think it’s interesting.”
