    As stated below, Tywin is right in that she's not nearly as smart as she thinks she is. To some extent she IS doing what only a woman in this society can do, but the difference is exactly as you've pointed out. Majaery is a better example thus far in the show of what it takes to be a woman in a position to take political power in the only way they can and you can see that she probably has learned this not just because she's smart, but because her grandmother (love Diana Rigg!) appears to be a professional at it. I was very pleased to see Tywin kind of put Cersi in her place in this past episode. He pretty much summed up what a lot of the viewers were thinking. And Joffrey is a direct result of Cersi's actions in terms of being a mother, I think. The kid probably already had sociopathic proclivities, but her teachings combined with his misogynistic attitude mutated into something terrible.
