James’s Recent Updates

“The legends of heroic men protecting helpless women turn out to be lies and, worse, propaganda intended to encourage women to embrace their helplessness.”
James Lowder, Beyond the Wall: Exploring George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire

“In the midst of what appears to be a traditional male-power fantasy about war and politics, he serves up a grim, realistic, and harrowing depiction of what happens when women aren’t fully empowered in a society. In doing so, by creating such diverse and fully rendered female characters and thrusting them into this grim and bitter world, Martin has created a subversively feminist tale.”
James Lowder, Beyond the Wall: Exploring George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire

“Here’s where PTSD is particularly nasty. It isn’t really a “disorder” as modern medical experts understand it. It’s a shift in perspective. Being forced into Condition Black and being trained to live in Condition Yellow are both highly traumatizing. Both shift your worldview, often permanently. Both become hard-coded into personality, changing the individual in ways they never expected. Sometimes, amazingly enough, for the better.”
James Lowder, Beyond the Wall: Exploring George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire
