That was my argument, but a girl with a sword says it much better, no?

Does Maisie just have one facial expression? I don't watch Game Of Thrones but she was a repeate guest character on Doctor Who last year and it seems like her face never moves!

By the way, her argument is stupid.
If you label a person gifted they're not bad. If you label them exceptional they're not either (hopefully)

MGI: Never watched GoT. I've read the books.

*Eye roll* You're missing the point. Being an "-ist," such as sexist, or racist, tends to mean something negative. In "Last Man Standing," Mike calls himself a humanist; "I hate everyone equally."

Of course women are entitled to equal pay and equal voice. For that I have to be a feminist? If I felt the same way about other races I don't get a philosophic label for being ethical and moral. It's considered a given.

A person who is gifted or talented or brilliant is something else. It isn't their worldview or personal philosophy, that has to do with inborn ability. Not exactly comparable.
