Not sexist towards women, but sexist towards men. These quotes really make me wonder about this.
That seems extremely extremely sexist and highly offensive to me. Anyway, what are everyone elses thoughts on this?
Actually, a perusal of Sansa's first chapter in [i]ASoS shows us that Lady Olenna also has a rather dim view of certain of the women surrounding her. Here are some of her quotes (any bolding is my emphasis):
"Kiss me, child," Lady Olenna said, tugging at Sansa's wrist with a soft spotted hand. "It is so kind of you to sup with me and my foolish flock of hens."
"Grandmother," Margaery said, "mind your words, or what will Sansa think of us?"
"She might think that we have some wits about us. One of us, at any rate."
Here, Sansa, sit here next to me, I'm much less boring than these others.
So again, as Dr. Pepper
, and others brilliantly pointed out above, the QoT's problem is with stupidity and foolishness, regardless of sex/gender.
