Inspired by Game of Thrones

They say that a Queen has as much a right to rule as a King.

If a Queen is ugly, she is scorned. They call her cut-throat, ragged, trash.

If a Queen is assertive, she is scorned. They call her bitch, rude, profane.

If a Queen is not covered, she is scorned. They call her whore, slut, provoking.

If a Queen is kind, she is scorned. They call her timid, soft, weak.

If a Queen is ruthless, she is scorned. They call her tyrant, mad, cruel.

If a Queen cries, they cry with her. They call her strong, brave-hearted.

If a King is ugly, he is no less a King. They see him no differently.

If a King is assertive, he is powerful. They respect him.

If a King is not covered, he is manly. They swoon at him.

If a King is kind, he is not taken seriously. They judge him.

If a King is ruthless, he is feared. They obey him.

If a King cries, they laugh at him. They call him weak, emotional.

When a Great Queen dies, her name becomes history.

When a Great King dies, his name becomes legend.

Where, in all this, was a Queen allowed to simply be the woman she is?

Where in all this, was a King allowed to simply be the human he is?
