Um, excuse you fandom but why is Amy Pond, River Song, Zoe Washburn, Valentine Wiggin, Bonnie Bennett, Martha Jones, Mai (Avatar), Ginny Weasley, Gwen, Dualla, EMILY GILMORE, ELIZABETH WEIR, BRIENNE OF TARTH and a complete list of awesomely awesome women on this list? F. U. FANDOM. THESE WOMEN FUCKING ROCK. Stick that in your juice box and suck it.

They are not on the list because they are strong, capable awesome women. I didn't look at the list, but that seems to be the reason.

I really need a WTF icon...

It's just really all about appreciating the under appreciated awesomeness because seriously, some of these women are my frakking heroes.

Fandom are a bunch of whiny babies. It's the only explanation.

Stick that in your juice box and suck it.

Must be. There is no other logical conclusion.

Ugh, fandom has a tendency to hate on characters who are too complex for them to stereotype sometimes, well a lot of the time.

I went and commented about my love for Ginny and Amy (and am only just now realising I only commented for redheads, huh) and lurked a few other threads. I saw some subtle Ginny hate in the Cho thread though, which was offputting, but on the whole, yay for awesomeness!

Why is that? Those complex living in the grey areas characters are often the ones I find most compelling. I think the hate comes from fear and recognition. Most people have to label things so they can feel comfortable and sit back all judgey in their judgey space of opinion and if they can't label them definitively then the fear of unknown brings out the hate. Also, I'm pretty sure they like blissful ignorance.

Ugh, there was Ginny!hate? Grr. It's probably some shipper war bleed through. Oi, this fandom sometimes. *facepalm* I haven't had a chance to read the Cho thread, mostly because she's not really my fave, but I'm slowly warming up to her. The Girls Who Lived project over on tumblr in conjunction with my re-read, is really doing wonders for my Women of Potter Are Cooler than Written theory.

Exactly, it's all about how they don't feel comfortable with a supposedly good character doing things they don't approve of. Like if a character shows real emotions or doesn't know what to do and makes a mistake, a lot of people won't stop to consider, hey that makes this character believable and human, they just want to hate them. And I don't even want to go into the misogyny of women on the 'good' side shouldn't be in control of their sexuality. That seems to be a really common theme with people not liking female characters. *sigh*

Yeah, I was only skimming a lot of threads, but I saw that and it made me ugh. It's like they didn't get the point. And I don't think they even realised because it was a bit subtle. It seemed to me, because there's a moment in DH where Ginny's a little snappy towards Cho, and of course you have to insult the character who is mean to the character you love.

It just seems easier for people to fall into a state of dislike/hate when it comes to something they don't understand. Instead of, you know, taking the time to comprehend the other side. As if learning a new possibility is something incomprehensible to them because of the unfamiliar. To me, that's the best thing to explore! Maybe I'm just curious...

Ha! Well, I can only imagine from my limited reading of that book somehow Ginny was all YOU DON'T EVEN GO HERE to Cho when the Silver Trio of Potter was attempting to re-assemble the avengers DA... if that happened at all. Cos I have no idea what goes on in that book...

Elizabeth demands to know the reason for this stupidity. And furthermore, so do I.
