Villain of the Month: Cersei Lannister

Pornokitsch’s Villain of the Month for September is Cersei Lannister, and believe me, there’s a lot to say. As I argue in the piece, Cersei’s villainhood is in many ways intimately bound up with her womanhood. Not only would she employ very different tactics had she been born a man, she might not have grown into a villain at all.

Wait, what? Are you saying Cersei Lannister is a villain because she’s a woman?

Kinda, yeah. But hear me out.
