I am one of these people who believes a GREAT DEAL of the problem is the valuing masculinity over femininity (it’s THE crux of Feminism 4.0). It’s funny to see how qualified this statement is, as if femininity is outrageous to value, or as some feminists believe, a mere byproduct of misogyny.
It also saddens me to see every female character who takes on masculine characteristics lauded. It’s at the point where it’s a cheap trick. Nevermind many of those qualities (toughness, vengence, aggression) are usually illusory at best.
