I clearly stated that I didn’t condone what he said in any way, I said that I didn’t understand how it came as such a surprise to you. If it makes it any better, I think he’s a sick man, a sad man at that, who doesn’t really understand how to be polite in the slightest. He’s disgusting. I said that you opened yourself up to that, not that he was right. I’m trying to say you weren’t totally innocent here either
That! That’s bullshit. That is the gross disgusting bullshit right there spewing out of your finger tips. I never said I was surprised. What I said was the world would be better if he shut the fuck up. Which is true. What you’re saying is I deserved it. And I don’t. I posted a photo showing off my ass, majority of comments were respectful, or fine, ‘Nice ass.’ ‘OMG’ whatever… nothing THREATENING. No one opens themselves for threats, no one deserves to treated like that. And the fact that you think women who show off their bodies aren’t innocent when being threatened again, says volumes about how stunted you are as a human being your inability to wrap your head around human decency. I am innocent in this. Men aren’t sharks, and I am not a piece of meat. They have the ability to control themselves and I will hold them accountable to do so. It’s sad you don’t.

this is science.

Well, a lot of stuff is going to happen with Gendry if you ask me.
GRRM confirmed we’d see Gendry again.
I will make this sweet and short. Will we ever see or hear about Hot Pie, Gendry, Nymeria, Rickon and Shaggy in ADWD, or possibly later on in the series of ASOIAF?
Thanks for your time
Later in the series? Yes, to all of them. (source)
That interview was pre-ADWD, but since Gendry didn’t appear then, he’s coming back for either ADoS or TWoW if not both.
And I’m positive Gendry’s going to learn about his parentage, it’s a running theme in all of his appearances.
Ned touched the boy’s head, fingering the thick black hair. “Look at me, Gendry.” The apprentice lifted his face. Ned studied the shape of his jaw, the eyes like blue ice. Yes, he thought, I see it. Ned, AGoT
The girl did have hair like the old king’s, Arya thought; a great thick mop of it, as black as coal. That doesn’t mean anything, though. Gendry has the same kind of hair too. Lots of people have black hair. Arya, ASoS
“Who was your mother?”
“What’s that to you?”
“You were born in King’s Landing.” The way he spoke made her certain of it.
“Me and many more.” He plunged the sword into a tub of rainwater to quench it. The hot steel hissed angrily.
“How old are you?” Brienne asked. “Is your mother still alive? And your father, who was he?”
“You ask too many questions.” He set down the sword. “My mother’s dead and I never knew my father.”
“You’re a bastard.”
He took it for an insult. “I’m a knight. That sword will be mine own, once it’s done.”
What would a knight be doing working at a smithy? “You have black hair and blue eyes, and you were born in the shadow of the Red Keep. Has no one ever remarked upon your face?”
“What’s wrong with my face? It’s not as ugly as yours.”
“In King’s Landing you must have seen King Robert….
"Listen to me,” Brienne began. Then she heard Dog barking, loud and frantic. Brienne, AFFC
“Gendry,” she wheezed. “I have to talk with Gendry.” Brienne, AFFC
Oh, yeah. GRRM has loved throwing this in our faces. It’s definitely coming back and playing a role. As you pointed out, Varys bothered to spare his life when Robert’s bastards were being hunted down.
“A lord,” the master said reluctantly. “He gave no name, and wore no sigil on his coat. He paid in gold, twice the customary sum, and said he was paying once for the boy, and once for my silence.” Ned, AGoT
The eunuch’s smile was sly. “That might take rather a long time, my good lord. I know quite a lot.”
“Not enough to save this child, it would seem.”
“Alas, no. There was another bastard, a boy, older. I took steps to see him removed from harm’s way” Tyrion, ACoK
There was clearly a purpose to that. It makes sense because the Baratheon line is dying. Robert’s dead, he had no trueborn children, Renly’s dead, and Stannis is alive but unlikely to have any sons. And that’s it. Edric Storm has fled the country, but he’s also younger and less prominent of a character than Gendry- though I’m not sure how much that means.
Oh, and there’s this bit:
“The queen will catch you, then. She didn’t send gold cloaks after Ben Blackthumb!”
“Likely it wasn’t even me they wanted.”
“It was too, you know it. You’re somebody.” Arya, ACoK
"[Gendry’s] somebody", those are the words Arya used.
It’s going to be important, I’m sure. He’s definitely going to learn of his parentage, very possibly from Brienne who seems determined to tell him and is returning with Jaime to the Brotherhood.
But what does that mean really? Learning of his parentage does not equate to becoming legitimized. And Gendry isn’t the type of bastard who would be legitimized. By that I mean that bastards raised in noble households that were acknowledged (like Jon Snow and Edric Storm) are usually the types of bastards who get legitimized.
The reason why Gendry might despite that is because the Baratheon line is in a lot of trouble. At the moment, it seems certain to die out by the end of the series. And Gendry is the most prominently featured of all of Robert’s bastards. Edric’s in one book, and Mya’s barely a factor in the two books she’s in- unlike Gendry who is in most of Arya’s chapters in ACoK and ASoS as well as being in AGoT and a AFFC. He’s appeared in 4/5 books and 3 different POVs.
Still, I would hardly call Gendry being legitimatized likely.
I think that Gendry and Arya will meet up again- partially because I think Arya returning to the Riverlands is the most logically choice.
It just makes sense that Arya will go to the Riverlands. And if she does, she will almost certainly meet up with Gendry again (who is very obviously upset over her disappearance.)
- The Brotherhood- who she’s had consdierable contact with, who we got to know through her storyline, and who are looking for her- are in the Riverlands
- Lady Stoneheart is in the Riverlands
- Nymeria is in the Riverlands
- Saltpans (i.e. the port Arya left Westeros from and a likely returning point for her) is in the RiverlandsOne of the things I imagine will happen with Gendry’s storyline is that his skills as a smith will come into play. He’s the most prominent smith character that we meet. He trained under the best. A big deal is made of his smith skills. And this:
Did Tohbo Mott ever teach Gendry the secrets of reworking Valyrian steel?
GRRM: Interesting question. [source]
Smiths are important- after all, one of the Seven gods is the Smith. And we know Valryian steel is a weakness for the Others.
So those are my thoughts. I don’t want to make too many assumptions, so I kept this pretty vague- hope I answered your question though!
