we need to stop hailing female characters because they are female and got more screen time than is average.
we need to respect female characters as having flaws and not praising them for “strong” traits that are really being used because male writers have no idea how to write female characters.
it diminishes the good female characters when we praise ones that are the product of lazy writing just because they get more screen time and because the writers all boast about how they try and make their ladies “strong.”
there are writers out there that actually do write good female characters. they write female characters who are full and round and have flaws that are not praised but rather shown in objective, true light.
there are writers who don’t decide to make women “strong” in conviction or emotion and fall into yet another misunderstanding of what it is to write good female characters.
praise female characters that have depth and are good examples of how to write, and treat them as people with flaws that deserve to be talked about.
don’t treat them as perfect angels. people aren’t perfect. look at them honestly. think for yourself. analyze.
the only way we can improve the writing of female characters is to refuse the temptation to make our perception black and white, but rather to point out all the errors and victories in writing of these women, so that we can further grow.
