"I think the question of what makes a ‘strong female character’ often goes misinterpreted. And instead we get these two-dimensional superwomen, who maybe have one quality that’s played up a lot."
- 15-year-old Tavi Gevinson, A Teen Just Trying To Figure It Out (March 2012)
reasonable, desirable, simple, of course the characters should be 3d. there are a lot of strong complex female characters yet the blockbusters seem to lack them, even the ones written and directed by women, trying to get by on explosions doesn’t work everywhere.
the gaming world is being bothered by a rather large festering sore right now, journalistic integrity has been flushed by some of the biggest game review/news sites. people who should be bias free have been led around by their dicks to give the same bland 2d character crap a mountain of glowing reviews, it’s sickening. no matter who makes a movie or game, they should be held to some standards, on one side it’s ‘we men have the power, we decide what gets made’, on the other ‘you’re only saying my stuff is crap cause i’m a girl’. nobody that likes visual media benefits from that kind of thing, yet some have turned it into a way to make a hell of a lot of money and they’re not going to go away while we out here keep buying their junk.
the captain america movie is a great example of fully fleshed out female characters, a good example is when the girl, um, whassername, sergeant something, shot at the shield to ‘test’ it, during a fit of jealous rage… such a well fleshed out character, eh? neh… i know she was only in the movie a short while, but that was horrible, like, she couldn’t resist a guy with some muscles, a strong character would have been able to. seems the only reason she was there was to teach him/us a lesson about not running around wick dipping when there might be someone out there unable to resist our charms, somewhere, anywhere. who’s the idiot that wrote the movie anyway?
