Does a female character need to be ‘strong’ in order to ‘empower’ the female populous? Why do female characters need to be masculine in order to be ‘strong?’ Why is femininity seen as weak by the media and feminist community?

I agree, the Alien movies all had female protagonists and they were all put together well. Marvel also created and helped build the character of. Natasha Romanoff. It’s just that the majority of female superheroes and female protagonists nowadays don’t have much substance and only serve as a part of the ‘Metoo movement.’

They just want to break into markets where they don't naturally belong. Men admire strong men, so to get more economic leverage, they try to gender bend everything that men admire in order to extract resources.

The paper comic industry screams at the top of their lungs "nnnNNNOOOO!!!" when some corporate decision tries to "diversify" their intellectual property, whether it's gender, sexual preference, political ideology, etc., because the creators know that it just doesn't sell.

In the end, it's not about what makes money, but who gets the money. They're trying to stand on the shoulders of titans in order to take a share of the kill they didn't earn.

Is there a need to make every lead a female now?

Actually Gamora is a really well-rounded and well written character. She's never overpowered or invincible, and has a genuine arc and character development in the MCU. She' honestly is super underrated as a character.

You’re correct, this was the most prominent image I could find and the only really bad character in this image is Captain Marvel. She has no substance and only serves as an icon for ‘girl power.’ Not to mention that her actor Brie Larson made a sexist comment, “I don’t want any white males to watch this movie rate it” It only shows that in order to reach ‘equality’ the male populous must suffer.

why are you so triggered that a girl is powerful?

[–]RXelaH1984[S] 1 point2 points  (5 children) | Copy

Why do you have a vendetta against the Males’ Rights Movement? Also, there is an astute difference between a female character that’s powerful just for the sale of being strong. Why must a character be devoid of any substance just to contribute to ‘girl power.?’ The ideology that a female character has to be masculine in order to be empowering due to the ideology that femininity is synonymous with weakness? By the way, it’s pretty rare for a feminist to be on this subreddit, why are you on this subreddit even though it contributes to ‘inequality?’

why must a male super hero be incredibly strong? they’re fictional, it doesn’t matter and instead of looking at it from that angle you get triggered like the very ideology you hate. sorry, but you need to take the L here

Then why does a female character need to be strong? Why don’t they all be side-characters in movies and books. Furthermore, why do you believe I’m ‘triggered?’ I didn’t write, ‘All powerful female characters are bad and all powerful male characters are good.’ No, I commented on the lackluster approach to female empowerment which is giving female superheroes power and no substance to use it. Moreover, the Males’ Rights Movement is trying to undo the harm that feminism has done to the male populous (demonize, discriminate, and dehumanize). Did my post really offend your beliefs that much?

hey man, all that typing you’re doing seems pretty triggered

[–]RXelaH1984[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yet you’re the one whom was offended by a belief that was contrary to ‘girl power.’ Furthermore, why continue to try to defend your ‘triggered’ argument? Why not pick a better argument and try to defend that? Also, why do you discriminate against the Males’ Rights Movement.

[–]RXelaH1984[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Why did you make a post on a feminist platform which was declaring that feminism is a righteous ideology and the Males’ Rights Movement was discriminates towards women?
