“Aw don’t worry, there’s lots of shameless grown up men in the real world.”
Bella Ramsey, the 15-year-old actress who plays the feisty Lyanna Mormont on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” said in a recent interview that what she’ll miss the most about the show’s approaching end is being able to “shame” grown men.
HBO is currently airing the hit show’s eighth and final season.

When the question was put to her in an interview with the Cut published Thursday, Ramsey said: “I think the opportunity to stand up in front of a load of grown men and shame them.”
“I think playing confident characters also helps with your own confidence,” added the young actress, who was a pre-teen when she took on the role in 2016. “Say you’re in a situation where you’re feeling anxious or nervous — you can become a character and work through it that way. I’ll miss that about her.”
Ramsey’s declaration earned plaudits from woke Twitter users who gushed over the starlet’s feminist stance.

“Aw don’t worry, there’s lots of shameless grown up men in the real world,” wrote one commenter in reply to The Cut’s Gabriella Paiella, who shared her interview with Ramsey on Twitter.
Aww. I was hoping for a scene of all the men pissing their trousers when they hear of the white walkers coming and her just ripping them all a new one and sending them to war in shame. 🙁

But oher commenters were puzzled as to why Ramsey’s remarks were being applauded.
“Maybe bc I never seen the show but why is shaming men being admired lol I don’t get it,” wrote financial services expert David A. Martinez.
Martinez soon had his answer, which came from another denizen of Twitter, who wrote that “winter is HERE” for unsuspecting men.
Probably bc they need to nut up and face the reality of whats going on, instead of trying to bury their heads as far in the sand as they can 😂 whether they want to believe the truth or not, winter is HERE for them, and they need to grow a pair and get ready to fight 🤜🏻🤛🏻

The reception to Ramsey’s comments reflect reflects a broader cultural sea change, which has resulted in a particularly aggressive brand of feminism. Under this type of feminism, women are exhorted to cast off the shackles of their patriarchal past – forcefully, if the need arises. Critics of this more radical iteration of feminism argue that such tactics are counter-productive and self-defeating.
