I mean, nobody says ‘strong male character’ because no one is starving for strong male characters. The term means nothing because you can’t throw a rock in Hollywood without hitting 200 strong male characters.
We are drowning in a sea of one dimensional, gutless and helpless women (written by men) who are waiting to be saved by men. So much so that when miraculously we find one, we have to call her a ‘strong female character’ to differentiate her from the peripheral background props for the men that most women in movies are. What we really mean is realistic female character; believable female character; independent female character; a female character that is more than a pair of lips and breasts that generate drama and turmoil for the male character’s development.
Not a misogynist or whatever term y'all use now to refer to people who believe in equality but I don't particularly like any of the female characters... Like I respect and support women all the way but the ones on this show are just so poorly written. Also having so many female leads is a terrible idea, especially when they're all flat, one-dimensional characters... I really don't see what's so amazing about any of them.
