I feel that if you’re a guy, and you’re a nerd, you should have dumped the idea that women and men can’t like or be good at the same things about the same time you saw you’re first badass female character. Or vulnerable and strong female character. Or just a female character thats actually been written worth a damn. What does it say that the same people who agree that the treatment of mutants in Marvel comics is wrong also objectify female cosplayers? Do we really live in a world where you can see the truth right in front of you and still end up ignoring it because of some elitist philosophy? Grow up kid.
If you read books and comic books, play video games, and watch movies, then understand the good things they are trying to teach you. MaleShep and FemShep are equally badass. Wonder Woman can go toe to toe with Superman and Batman at the same time. Lois Lane doesn’t need powers to put you in your place, just a powerful strength of character.
Its a new age my fellow male nerds. The damsel in distress is also a badass in distress. Surprise, women are more than just cardboard cutouts for male attention to admire. They are people. And thats the only distinction. Just face a human being like a damn human being, and you’ll be amazed how much better things turn out.
Maybe we’ll actually get a fucking Wonder Woman movie.
