(gapes around at bridge crew) ...Say, is this a ship of the Valkyries? or have you human women finally gotten rid of your men altogether?
Q to Captain Janeway, Star Trek: Voyager ("Death Wish")

We are going to this party, because I'm trying to picture the sort of girl who would be interested in you. And all I can see is you. In a dress.
Bernard Black, Black Books


It's the thing that we already have, but now it's a girl. It's the girl version of the thing. Buy it now.
— ''Movie B.S. (podcast), episode 73


PS, AD and PI each have a lady counterpart, in accordance with deep seated mythology that dictates that any man secretly wishes to have sex with a female version of himself (re: Alvin and the Chipmunks, Mickey/Minnie, etc.)

It is far easier for the female paradigm to subvert, give the princess a laser cannon, and have her kick some ass than it is for the male paradigm to adapt into the female one.

He and I are basically the same person, except he has a glorious penis and I have glorious breasts.
Texts From Last Night

The Battletoads' main nemesis, the Dark Queen, commands a massive army of rodents and wishes to dominate the universe. Usually serving as final boss in the games, the Dark Queen is basically a sexy Shredder, right down to her between-level taunts.

Aya is the original female Cloud. Arguments: she's a loner with a smart mouth, but has a heart of gold beneath her prickly and aloof exterior. She experiences inexplicable flashbacks and receives extrasensory advice from an apparently hallucinatory source. She's powered by the cells of a foreign entity and locked in a fierce, vaguely homoerotic rivalry with a fathomlessly strong opponent with an advanced mastery of their common power. And while she doesn't often wear a dress, she nevertheless looks good in one.

Wolverine was a totally badass, growly antisocial guy who smoked and drank and who was so tough nobody better mess with him, and Marvel thought, 'Hell, we can pander to young boys way harder than that!'

Joel (Schumacher) refers to Poison Ivy as a 'beautiful, sexy' version of the Unabomber. Never really thought of it that way, to be honest. Never gotten that drunk or stoned.
The Agony Booth, Batman & Robin' recap supplement

I cannot produce any feelings about this cast or the news of a Ghostbusters reboot until I know two things:

1. Does Sigourney Weaver reprise her role as Dana/Zuul in it? If the answer is no, fuck this shit.

2. If Sigourney Weaver is in it, which one of those four ladies is she going to try to scissor with?
Michael K., "The All-Female Ghostbusters Has a Cast"

She’s basically a female version of the Human Torch (except that her powers require her to be naked all the time, because of course they do), and I don’t recall reading any comics where Johnny Storm has to seduce Dr. Doom before he starts flaming on.
Chris Sims on Cinder, "The 5 Worst Comics of 2010"

Just so we're clear, Spider-Woman has had her own show and She-Hulk hasn't. She-Hulk, who's really awesome and a lawyer and likes to break the fourth wall and hangs out with Howard the Duck and all, no cartoon...This ABC Saturday morning toon from 1979 had Jessica Drew working as an editor at Justice Magazine, which was never featured in the comics, so that's kinda stupid...Like the completely not-lame Spider-Man character (who was apparently contractually obligated to appear in two episodes of this nonsense), Spider-Woman possesses a spider sense that alerts her to danger. But in this cartoon, danger usually took the form of ghostly Vikings or UFOs, which would be cool if they were being fought by a character folks actually give a shit about. Now, She-Hulk taking on ghost Vikings aboard a UFO? That's entertainment.

T'Pol is a female Vulcan who is the ship's second in command and Science Officer, ie Spock with a sex change...She's not as famous for wearing her form fitting uniform as she is for taking off her form fitting uniform.

The Cyberwoman costume is horrifically designed; who ever thought it was a good idea to give her a metal bra? It isn't practical, scary or sexy, it's just dreadfully embarrassing to watch the actress lumbering about in it.

Chris: Tess discovers that her birth parents were, in fact — wait for it — The Luthors. And that her real name is LUTESSA, which is hilarious.
David: LUTESSA LENA LUTHOR, Chris. Don’t forget about the fanservice in the middle.
Chris: The extra L makes her 1.5 times more evil than Lex!

Who's going to be interested in a female character who is pretty shamelessly a knock-off of her already popular male counterpart?

Yes, SHODAN is a female, villain version of Max Headroom. And that is hilarious.
George Weidman on System Shock

If only there was a female counterpart to Squall from Final Fantasy VIII, but with big titties, so I can harbour secret fuck fantasies about him, but without it being gay. (Paine appears) Viva Rule 63!

You think Peter O'Toole and Faye Dunaway are all excited that they're gonna be in a Superman movie, you know? And then they find out they're in Supergirl.

    Western Animation 

Haven't you noticed she looks exactly like me but in drag?
Mickey Mouse on Minnie, Robot Chicken parody

A Female He-Man?! This is the worst day of my life!
Skeletor, in reference to She-Ra.

Kanye is the black Madonna.

She-Hulk is the chick you could fuck if you were Hulk.
