From a message:

I don’t think you can really say that there’s no such thing as a bad female character. And the way you’re approaching this is (possibly unintentionally) indicating that you believe that. We very much do have a problem in fiction works where some writers over-sexualize female characters instead of developing their personalities -This is a problem because in same works, the men are often far more dynamic. To me, this means we still need more females in stories and more females creating stories

Right. I’m sorry if it looked like I was saying that there’s no such thing as a bad female character - there obviously is. In debates like this it tends to polarize the two sides of the argument, pushing each party to extremes, so let me clarify my stance. I’m not saying that we should blindly love ANY character simply for being female while heaping praise upon the creators for creating a female character. I absolutely think that we should be pushing for better, more well-rounded, more diverse female characters, and that we should hold the writers accountable for their shortcomings. However, my problem with the initial post that started all this is that it displays an attitude I see all too often: “because sexism exists, it would be better if there were no female characters rather than ‘bad’ female characters.”

(Watch out, it’s a long one under the cut!)
