Given his status among the pantheon of science fiction authors, {{Shout Out}}s to his work are very widespread in modern science fiction. He tends to be popular among the military as well, particularly for ''Starship Troopers'', which has in the past been on the required reading lists for both the US Marine Corps and the US Navy.[[note]]Yes, [[ObligatoryJoke they require Marines to read]].[[/note]]

Heinlein's protagonists are typically geniuses, often with perfect memory and a love for mathematics. They have held opinions covering most of the political spectrum, to the point where the oft-made argument "Heinlein's heroes all have his political opinions!" needs to account for the fact that the sum total of "political opinions held by Heinlein protagonists" includes many mutually contradictory ideas. For that matter, Heinlein himself expounded the merits of wildly different political opinions; several of his earliest books were essentially guided tours through a couple of (non-Marxist) anarcho-socialist [[MarySueTopia future paradises]] -- though these paradises also valued sexual freedom and the right to bear arms. He would later write of a yet another such (alien) paradise in his famous AuthorTract ''Literature/StrangerInAStrangeLand'' -- and he would reference this paradise throughout much of his future work.

For that matter, Heinlein himself expounded the merits of wildly different political opinions; several of his earliest books were essentially guided tours through a couple of (non-Marxist) anarcho-socialist anarcho-libertarian [[MarySueTopia future paradises]] -- though these paradises also valued sexual freedom and the right to bear arms.

Heinlein's approach to female characterization is [[ValuesDissonance sometimes controversial.]] While his female characters are a reasonably varied lot, they tend to have a few things in common: [[MenActWomenAre The men spend a lot of time explaining things to them.]] They [[NeverASelfMadeWoman rarely end the story un-paired with a man]], sometimes even expressing a fear of lesbianism. [[NeverASelfMadeWoman And they often see motherhood as their highest goal.]] Many stories feature underage (barely teenage) girls "bundling" with far older men. It should be considered, however, that [[FairForItsDay at the time he wrote most of his novels]] an actively dominant female character was an extreme rarity.
