whenever “strong female characters” insult men by calling them girls my eyes roll so far back in my head i can see my brain cells die
You know what I would really like to see? A horror/suspense movie where the girl that survives the first half hour, the girl that we are supposed to be rooting for and invested in, is the one that was established in the inevitably setup virgin/whore dichotomy as the promiscuous/wild one. Or ya know, a movie where that comparison is never set up at all. Characters that die quickly after being introduced are almost always painted in a slightly unfavorable light (preferably while simultaneously increasing investment in the main character), so the death can set a tone without distracting the audience. It’s crazy how often in cases of female characters that light is cast by one person being comfortable discussing/having sex while the main character is more chaste.
