I am totally serious about the Gerudo society being matriarchal and controlled by women even when they have a King.
You have this group of Amazons that only see a King once every hundred years, of course they are going to be like “if we have to serve this guy he had better be worth it”.
He is the strongest in the tribe because they make sure he is the strongest. If he isn’t, then he shouldn’t be leading them. He probably spends most of his childhood getting whaled on by his sisters to “toughen him up”.
And there is none of that “hey I’m the only guy so this must be my harem” bullshit even if they are dependent on him for keeping the Gerudo a distinct race. You can bet just before puberty he gets fed all sorts of stuff about women having a greater chance of bearing children if the act itself is enjoyable and goes on for a long time.
There’s no serving Kings because tradition says so, tradition begins an ends with the women of the tribe, and they must put in all sorts of bits and pieces into his training and upbringing to make sure he knows that even though he is the King, they are the tribe.
