Whoa, where do you think you're going? Roll:
With you! Mega Man:
Not a chance, fancypants! I don't need any girl robots getting in my way! Roll:
You mean you don't want a girl robot showing you up. Mega Man:
Forget it, Roll! It's too dangerous.
Your job is cleaning, cooking, shopping, laundry and anything else I can think of.

Now, the elephant in the room. The thing that overshadows the actual game: Sonia Belmont. Legends
acted as an origin story for the entire Castlevania
series, and is probably best known for being retconned
by Koji Igarashi when he was producing the also-underwhelming Lament of Innocence
for the PS2
... However, due to a poor translation (or possibly a poor choice of words
), Igarashi added that another reason he removed Legends
was because the idea of Sonia, a female vampire hunter, was too unrealistic and unbelievable for Castlevania
fans because she was a woman. What about Sypha
So much for having respect for the series. 'This game doesn't count! So does one-third of Dracula's Curse

Most of this game is amazing. You'll have shootouts with everyone from hill people to the Mexican army and if you're more than 10 feet from town, there is always a cougar behind you. However, if you take a mission from a woman, you can forget about all that fun. When you talk to a guy, he wants you to get on a gatling gun and kill buffalo rapists. When you talk to a girl, she wants you to play a rhythm action
game to feed her pigs. A woman's idea of a mission is a scenic wagon ride or driving her fussy cattle out to pasture, and she will be nagging at you the whole goddamn time.
DC has a Wonder Woman
problem. Or perhaps more accurately, Wonder Woman has a DC problem. The idea of Wonder Woman as a feminist icon is so imprinted in her history, and in analysis of the character, that separating her from feminism should be near impossible. But that hasnít stopped people trying.

''Justice League: The Rise of Arsenal
Princesses Leia and Amidala are not simply damsels in distress in the Star Wars
films, they are decision makers and figures of governmental authority. Amidala has several aspects of Isis in her character. But Lucas
never seemed as interested in female characters (and not much interested in character in general).
If you look up 'rogue' in the dictionary you'll see that it's the polar opposite of how the character is depicted in the initial X-Men
trilogy. Many fans viewed Rogue's decision to nullify her powers by taking The Cure
in Ratner's X-Men 3
as a betrayal of her character, but her choice was actually completely in line with how Singer established her in his movies. Movie Rogue has absolutely no reason to be proud of the powers that brought her nothing but misery...The only time Rogue comes close to being as badass as her comic book counterpart is when she's suited up for promotional photos that don't reflect her usage
in the movies. She's such a milquetoast that it felt overdue when her spot on the team was finally outsourced to former cameo queen Kitty "I'm nothing without Lockheed
" Pryde...When Singer announced that Rogue's solitary DoFP
scene had been cut for pacing issues, fan reaction was split between 'Yay! She sucked anyway
!' and 'Yay! At least they can't ruin her anymore!
Let's ask you
the questions now. Why were you holding [Homura] back? Is it because she's a girl, and you're a knight in shining armor, obliged to save damsels?

I spent most of Timelash tied to a pole.
It was so small-minded. I have spoken to some of the other assistants and we all suffered from that problem. I found it incredible that Doctor Who

Marina and I have always laughed about the fact that both of us can do fencing and that sort of thing. We're the ones who bash pots over warrior's heads, instead of doing karate or whatever.
A lot of girl power ended up on the cutting room floor, unfortunately. I had a really awesome scene where I was fighting The Foot Clan, but I think they were like, 'Why would a tiny journalist be able to kick so much ass?' So that got cut.
As a reminder: the premise of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
is that four anthropomorphic turtles, named for Renaissance artists, were trained in the arts of ninja fighting by an anthropomorphic rat. They battle aliens and mutant animals in the sewers of New York City. But, no, it just doesn't make sense that a small woman would be able to successfully beat a foe in hand-to-hand combat.
