“They’ll say, ‘Oh, he’s sexy,’ but women still go for guys who are 6’2. It’s nice that people are thinking outside the box, but I don’t believe any of it for a minute.”

Peter Dinklage, from HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” tells Playboy that he isn’t buying claims that he’s a sex symbol on the basis that women generally don’t go for men of his diminuative height. Oh, Peter. Yes, you may be right that generally women are attracted to men who are tall or at least taller than them, though I think that has more to do with conditioning than an inclination we’re actually born with. But that certainly doesn’t apply to all women and even those women are generally attracted to taller men can be attracted to men who are short. Sex appeal has to do with so many factors. So trust me. You are a fucking sex symbol, Dink. I would throw myself at you if I ever encountered you on the street, but you’re married and I am a lady. And if you still don’t believe me, believe this woman. She’s hot for you too. P.S. You know what else is hot about you? Your humility. [People]

Gwendolyn Christie Talks About Gender Roles & Fighting For “Game Of Thrones”‘ Brienne

I could write a whole article on how amazingly awesome Brienne of Tarth is just from my own perspective but in this case I’ll leave it up to the actress who plays her on HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Gwendoline Christie did an interview with TV Guide recently where she said some interesting things about gender roles in Westeros.

“Brienne has seen this woman exhibiting strength in an intellectual manner with Renly, and also exhibiting strength of love and motherhood that I think she sees as equal to her own physical strength,” Christie said of the character Lady Catelyn Stark. “And perhaps it’s the first time we see Brienne consider something beyond the strength of the physical in a woman as a means to be equal to a man.” Read more on The Mary Sue…

Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen Roleplayer Seeks Robb Stark Look-A-Like For Iron Throne Sex Romp

At this point in the “Game of Thrones” TV series (season three started a week-and-a-half ago), Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen and Robb Stark have not shared any screentime. (I don’t know if they will in the future, as I haven’t read all of George R. R. Martin’s books.) But they are both vying to rule the Iron Throne — and that is where this horny New Orleans-area Craigslister’s sexual roleplaying fantasy will take place between herself and the Robb Stark look-a-like she seeks. If you happen to have Robb’s dark curls and pouty lips and are interested in taking on the kinky role, be prepared to bring your own costumes. ”You will need to provide your own clothing,” the poster instructs. “Please keep in mind that you will have recently participated in a battle and been thrown in a dungeon, so you will not be wearing your nicest furs. I’m looking for a Stark in the streets but a wildling in the sheets.” Ooh, I might have just gotten a little damp in my smallclothes! [The Daily Beast]

"You know what's in my Tumblr? Regret."

Or more specifically, as Drunk Uncle’s brother-in-law Peter Drunklage, who is arguably the drunkest of them all. Kids these days don’t even wear garters anymore. And all they care about is “Tumblr me, Tumblr me.” As for his Tumblr blog? Full of regret. Marco? Rubio! Amazing.

It can be hard out there for an imp. So it makes sense that Tyrion Lannister, the brains behind the whole House of Lannister operation, might be looking for a new gig via the career site LinkedIn. We found Tyrion’s profile (which was sadly taken down shortly thereafter), and a couple of other “Game of Thrones” players eager to make a career move. Check out the rest of Tyrion’s profile, and a couple of others, after the jump! Keep reading »

5 Things We Learned At The “Game Of Thrones” Exhibit

Yesterday, Amelia and I went to the traveling “Game of Thrones” exhibition, because we are queen nerds who love nerding out about Khaleesi, Jon Snow, Cersei and the rest of the gang. The “GoT” exhibit’s made a major splash in NYC, with people lining up down the street and around the block for the chance to sit upon the Iron Throne. Amelia and I are super impatient, so I called up the exhibit’s organizers and got press passes so we could cut the line. After today, the collection goes to Sao Paulo, Brazil; Amsterdam, The Netherlands; and Belfast, Ireland, so if you’re in any of those spots, check it out. If not, we’ve got five important tidbits we learned during our visit…

If Websites Existed In “Game Of Thrones”‘ Westeros

Caldwell Tanner didn’t use HBO’s Join the Realm website to create these unique House Sigils. Instead, he came up with his own designs for what popular websites might hang from their proverbial castle walls if they lived in the world of “Game of Thrones.” And we decided to join in on the fun. Look at the House Sigils and mottos from Twitter, Wikipedia, The Mary Sue, and more! Read more…

George R. R. Martin Says He Is “A Feminist At Heart”

“There was a period in my life when I would have called myself a feminist, back in the seventies, when the feminist movement was really getting going and growing out of the counter culture of the sixties,’ he says. ‘But the feminist movement has changed. Sometime in the 80s and 90s I read some pieces by women saying that no man can ever be a feminist and you shouldn’t call yourself that because it’s hypocritical, so I backed off. I thought if the current crop of feminists believes that no man can be a feminist, then I guess I’m not one.”

Game of Thrones creator George R. R. Martin spoke with the UK’s Telegraph about how positively women have responded to his books and the HBO series based on them, and, as a result, ended up “coming out” as a feminist. While it appears that he feels somewhat cagey about using the word because some feminists might not accept him, he goes on to articulate his obviously feminist views: “To me being a feminist is about treating men and women the same. I regard men and women as all human — yes there are differences, but many of those differences are created by the culture that we live in, whether it’s the medieval culture of Westeros, or 21st century western culture.” Indeed. Sounds like he’s a feminist to me. While there are certainly some women who are bothered by the at times gratuitous nudity on the show, “Game of Thrones” also has one of the most diverse casts of complex female characters on television, thanks to Martin’s vision. That’s cool in my book. [Telegraph UK]

10 Things You Didn’t Know About “Game Of Thrones”

It’s been a long break, but “Game of Thrones” is back! Season three starts this Sunday and that’s far better than winter coming. I can finally bask in all the glory that is King in the North, Robb Stark. Thank The Seven. This season promises everything we’ve grown to expect like Joffery being a creep, totally sweet dragons and surprisingly smart political intrigue.

But, despite the hours of complicated plot details and a constantly widening landscape (or maybe because of it), there are some things even the most focused fan might miss. And lovely reader, that’s where we come in! Here are the questions you didn’t even know you had about good old “GoT.” Read more…
