People keep wanting to put this on the list despite the fact that there's six characters there and they call the pink boisterous party girl not feminine. Can six characters even count?

  • The Mane 6 also fall into this, with shy, animal-loving Fluttershy and fashion-obsessed Rarity as femme; boisterous party girl Pinkie Pie and studious intellectual Twilight Sparkle as neither; and tough, hardworking farmer Applejack and brash, athletic Rainbow Dash as butch.

Given the lineup, I don't see why it can't be included, since the characters still fit the trio structure in the pairs noted. In particular since Pink does not automatically equal feminine. Pinkie Pie's character is far less stereotypically feminine than the usual for this trope, while the stereotypically feminine roles are clearly filled by Fluttershy and Rarity.

How could a BUTCH character be a FEMME Fatale???

While the name may be male, I don't think the descriptor applies to men only.

Femme as a descriptor is effectively the opposite of Butch. But it can be and has been applied to male characters, almost exclusively gay male characters.

I'm sorry, but Auburn usually counts as REDHEAD. Agent Pool is the real blonde!

How would you compare Town Girls to The Three Faces of Eve?

I think we should remove the iCarly example, all members of the trio must be of the same gender.
