How can….???

Have you not lived among women your entire life!?

I mean over half the population of the world is women!!!

Oren Ashkenasi over at Mythcreants goes over “Eight Absurdities We Force on Female Characters” (posted Aug 4, 2018)

  1. Lone Representation – or what I call “Smurfette”. The only female in a full-length novel makes people angry, because as the sole representative – whatever she is is incomplete. (Likewise having only one person of color in a large cast makes no sense.)
  2. Special Women Fighting Styles – “The physics of murder don’t change based on gender.” — I LOVE this quote!
  3. Feisty – Yeah. Can’t even begin my reactions to this one.

The list of the absurdities goes one and definitely worth the read. Again the URL for the full article is: https://mythcreants.com/blog/eight-absurdities-we-force-on-female-characters/

Takeaway start each character from the baseline of human and go from there.
