Also comes in the variation of a female character being any of these things and because of that being cast off as a weak, horrible, non-feminist character.
Like, no. Just because a female character isn’t physically strong doesn’t mean she is weak. There are cool things like mental and emotional strength too, yah know ?
And even if said female character is weak, being strong doesn’t make you an automatically good character. I know lots of male characters loved for their weaknesses, so why can’t female characters be too ?
