Girls Who Are Girls

I was talki11041721_10152534241251887_5016669480886065863_nng with a friend the other day and the topic of my characters came up.

We were really talking about women and empowerment, but I’ll take it.  Anyway, what I always find interesting is that people seem to think that girls should be written differently to men.  I mean sure, I get that women tend to not call each other by nicknames like, “Bullethead,” and “Axe,” or call their friends by their surnames (unless they’re Carlisle), but why can’t they be strong, powerful, and save the world?

If enough content creators decide that enough is enough and write strong women by default, maybe we’ll eventually be able to stop talking about it because they won’t be strong — they’ll be normal.
