Inspired by this Comics Alliance article, which stated, regarding many female comic characters, “They read like men’s voices coming out of women’s faces.”*
This isn’t to say men can’t write good women, or shouldn’t write women. It’s great when anyone writes fantastic female characters. But as far as I’m concerned, a lot of comic writers have never written women at all, only hollow wooden sex puppets.
(Prints of this if you want them.)
*EDIT: By “men’s voices coming from women’s faces”, it’s not implying anything about gender roles, more that so much of what women talk about is in the service of men, for men’s sake, about men’s interests, without motives of their own. Just wanted to clarify.
