I read this on tumblr

and said, dayum, ain't it true...

common opinions on lady characters in fandom

“ugh this woman has too much influence on the plot!! MARY SUE”

“ugh this woman doesn’t influence the plot why is she there?? MARY SUE!”

“ugh this woman does cool shit and women dont do cool shit!! MARY SUE!”

“ugh this woman has realistic flaws so SHES ANNOYING!!!!!!”

“ugh this woman doesn't have any flaws!! MARY SUE!”

“ugh this woman came within a foot of insert male character here!! MARY SUE!”


Don't understand the attitude, but I've seen it around.  That it came to me on tumblr from a political blog says even more....

And while I'm at it, my 4th day in a row posting.  Will I scream Bingo tomorrow?

It is really, really sad how true this is.

Unfortunately, in IY Kagome has become the Mary Sue of choice for many female IY writers who want to live through her. The complicated young girl RT wrote about has become St. Kagome for both IK and SK writers. RT herself has admitted that she was closet to Kikyou who she said was always by her side making her feel good while writing the story.
