Noveson Posted May 6, 2016 Share Posted May 6, 2016 3 hours ago, protar said: It really isn't though. The obsession some religious groups have with homosexuality is quite new. In the past (and in the books) homosexuality was seen as an embarrassing little piece of court gossip. You were expected to keep it to yourself but so long as it didn't interfere with marrying or getting an heir who cared. Making Loras' sexuality the focus of the Sparrow plot line is very much a modern conceit. It strikes me as anvilicious moralising. Which is incredibly galling coming from a show as unintentionally homophobic as Game of Thrones. What in the world made you come to the conclusion that Loras' sexuality was the focus of that story line? The high sparrow doesn't care who's having sex with who, whether it be an affair or with the same sex. He's merely using the rules to get what he wants, which is to overthrow the elite class. I thought that was pretty clear. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
