That doesn't mean it's a problem: she's definitely a critique on the white savior trope in that most white saviors are colonizers with nukes claiming to want to abolish slavery and then creating terrorist states. At this point, that's exactly what Dany is and it isn't ignorant to ask that question and wonder about the consequences of thinking like a white savior thinks. You're being foolish. What terrorist states she has made? The people of Meereen are free to come and go and live their lives as they please, Yunkai was left alone, and the actions of evil individuals who had no connection to Daenerys were what destroyed Astapor. What nukes does she have? The dragons are not nukes at this point; at best, they are guns. She is not a colonizer. Colonizers create colonies and colonies, by definition, are subservient geopolitical and socioeconomic possessions of another country in which the people of such colony do not have the rights afforded to those who live in the controlling country. What country is she creating colonies on behalf of? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
