Hope this wasn't posted i tried to search, and it didnt come up, but you know how the search is....
8. Cersei Lannister from "A Song of Ice and Fire" series
Cersei gets a bad rap. Yes, she has incestuous sex with her brother, and she's super protective of her horrible son Joffrey. But again, what mother ISN'T protective of her son, however horrible he may be? Cersei longs to be a powerful woman in an environment where women are not taken seriously. We feel that. Her deceased husband, Robert Baratheon, was always bedding new women and had bastard children all over the city. Her father, Tywin, tells her she is no longer wanted on the king's council and that he wants to marry her off to someone. Girlfriend is a proud woman, and she is constantly shown "her place." That sucks.
honestly for a second here i almost didnt post it, because i feel like the author of the article is an idiot and doesnt really explain much... but oh well..
EDIT: I called the writer of the article an idiot, because of the way the article was written and the lack of depth and support the author gave. It had nothing to do with her differing opinion, and for the two posters that suggested that it had to do with that, ARE idiots because no where in my post did i even suggest my opinion on Cersei being Sympathetic. So may the others take you
