  1. I can’t agree that Morgan le Fay is fighting in the name of feminism. “Women should be able to sleep with whomever” is one thing, but “women should be able to sleep with whomever while in a committed relationship” is a completely different thing.

    I can’t root for her preventing someone murdering someone else for cheating (male or female). Being cheated on completely crushed me and has basically destroyed me emotionally and as a result my life is in shambles, driven to the point where the only reason I’m not dead is the fact that I didn’t have the guts to pull the trigger. Though being cheated on made me to want to kill myself rather than the person who did it to me because I’m not that kind of a person, I have absolutely no sympathy towards the life of a cheater, especially in fiction. So, boo Morgan!

    That being said, though, this entire series has left me pretty well revolted at the treatment of women in general. I had expectations of bad things going in, but we immediately got into rape at the beginning of the first book and from that point on it’s been almost nothing but treatment as property.
