Degrading a character is fine, because they don’t really exist, but a real person is a different thing.

So Game of Thrones—"Game of Boners"—is just around the corner! I thought it would be fun to take a look at the series' biggest "subliminal" marketing technique—BOOBIES! Yes, the guys who make Game of Thrones really do think it is okay to completely degrade their female actresses to potentially gain male viewers. Of course, an actress is female, by definition, but I wanted to explicitly state that it is the actual actresses they degrade, not just their characters.
