I feel like this "problem" is going away in a few episodes if the writers keep historical accuracy.
Look we've all watched shows with horrible characters or plots that made no sense, but with most shows, boring lead roles and shitty writing were just something you'd have to put up with. This has never been the case with Game of Thrones. Personally never seen Game of Thrones because I only read audiobooks for entertainment since I am better than all of you, but I stumbled upon an article talking about how the show now has "an issue with gay people". Here is the article from the LGBT magazine GQ
I understand their complaints, seeing gay people in a show that is supposed to be based on history is incredibly hard to ignore. As we all know the LGBT was invented in the 1960s with weed and all that other hippie bullshit. Personally not my cup of tea, but no judgment if that's how you want to live your life (just don't let my kids see it). Back to the Thrones, two characters being described as gay shouldn't be a concern for the diehard fans that care about history being accurately portrayed since they are probably going to die anyway. Shit, they could die the next episode at this rate, I mean they are fuckin' gay when people still fought with swords and dragons hadn't gone extinct yet if this was real life and you were "sword fighting" with your buddy in the bedroom you'd be killed on the spot.
According to the article, there is no "gay" in Game of Thrones which does align with history. That would be like if the elf and the dwarf characters started saying "yo the ring is lit fam" or "that midget is bussin fr no cap", words need to be invented with time and it would literally ruin the show if they even uttered those three letters.
Again I haven't seen the show myself and I never will because I am not a filthy peasant that watches TV for entertainment. If you are a braindead consumer that watches whatever is popular on TV, breathe a long sigh of relief because in the next two episodes these gay characters are going to be beheaded or killed in some other brutal fashion and you can get back to having history told the way it happened.
Update: I didn't actually read the article I was writing about (because I don't read gay magazines written for women), but apparently one of the gay guys is already dead and he died in the first episode. Talk about jumping the gun huh? The writers didn't even bother waiting for the inevitable backlash before hitting the backspace key into the face of the first openly gay character in the series. And as they like to say in the army "One down, one to go"
