I feel a lot of arguments could be more productive if everyone agreed

strong female characters

means both strength of character and strength of punching people, necessarily female.

like, the argument that goes 'she's a strong character because she punches people' is at best incomplete, but when I say I want more strong women I also mean I look forwards to seeing muscles.

Because we are in need of women being varied and well rounded humans who are the equal of men in every way, and sometimes that means punching things.

Punching things is not sufficient.

But neither is being always the thinky one while the men fight.




Every time I find a bunch of good shows in a row I figure we don't need to even say that bit anymore, but then I end up in a room where a male author starts off by saying female characters are more interesting because they can't fight, and, well, the argument is back.


I'd like to start with parity. Equal numbers of men and women. Not just nearly equal, though two out of five is clearly better than one out of four. Actually equal. And if a script comes in that isn't equal, just flip someone at random.


... and realise that math leaves out nonbinary people entirely, but they could add as many nonbinary people as they liked without unbalancing the script, and they'd solve the odd numbers...

Got a whole plot bunny from spoiler pictures, from a show I can't watch until it's out on DVD, of an episode next week, so it won't work after next week and very probably doesn't work now since all I know is tumblr gif sets.


But

Mick Rory, Leonard Snart, Legion of Doom, Spear of Destiny, and the Oculus

Happy endings, everyone exists again, happily ever after

... in a probably crime all up and down time sort of way...


Eta:
I would just sometimes like it if being a hero lead to an improved situation and some visible rewards. otherwise it's all propaganda for team evil, who often seem to have actual fun.

If I could write and had any idea of the not a gif bits of plot this year I still couldn't write this before it got jossed.

But still.

In my head it's epic.

I suspect some people writing about Buffy
(the presumably for money ones I mean)
have not rewatched recently.

Not because they're being capital letters Wrong
just that a lot of little details are either slightly off
or I and my memory are from an alternate timeline.

Rewatching to decide which is, of course, tempting.
