i think what gets me abt fics like that is that… it reeks so much of like idk putting the “other girls” down or whatever
like she’s strong but she cant be TOO STRONG and show it physically because that is not FEMININE and being muscly is GROSS muscly girls are GROSS she’s still gotta be able to fit into the manly arms of the Dude Love Interest
her titties are big but Not Too Big!!! bc u know big boobs are bad but also not too small bc small boobs are also bad!!!
and her skin is perfect and there are no scars or if there is one its v cosmetic and ONLY HEIGHTENS HER BEAUTY bc scarred skin is also bad (also her skin is white like porcelain bc white skin is also Good)
LIKE idk it just makes so many assumptions for what an ideal female is supposed to look like and willingly or not casts all these assumptions that women who exist outside of that ideal are B A D if that makes any sense
like i think women and young girls should be able to explore mary sues and live out their own power fantasies but also i kind of wish ppl wouldnt do it within the confines of female beauty as dictated by a white patriarchal society u feel me
