btvs 1x11

you know what it’s kind of amazing to me that female characters can make an entire speech about their insecurities (cordelia chase: btvs 1x11/2x16, caroline forbes: 1x01/1x08 you don’t need meta, it’s handed to you on a silver platter!!) yet most of fandom will continue to pretend she doesn’t have any depth until she meets some ~respectable~ standard of physical strength/trauma (cordelia: visions, caroline: vampire)

fandom will read into the facial expression of some male character and what it means but when a female character makes an entire speech that hands their depths to you on a silver platter you pretend it’s not there ok
