I am gonna talk about the female superheroes of marvel and DC and how they are at some times at the brunt of toxic reactions by a certain section of the fandom. I am not gonna name that certain section of the fandom because they know exactly who they are but the thing I noticed is that any show or movie that sheds light to women empowerment is spammed with hate and toxicity by these people. They start to collectively hate on those characters as well like Supergirl and Captain Marvel. Supergirl does give light to women empowerment and that's great but captain marvel was given a lot of shit when it was an empowering story about what makes one human and even with Supergirl being targeted towards women shouldn't be a problem because there are characters like Thor and Ironman who represent what would be seen as 'masculinity' by these people, altough I much rather prefer someone like Spider-Man or Captain America over them. Spider-Man raises many issues that boys may face like people saying that you aren't man enough or people bullying you for being sensitive or not that into sports ect. But these people ignore all that stuff because all the female led movies are a war on their masculinity and they won't bow down to this feminist propaganda, that's what goes in their minds at least but then they would try to say stuff like oh no we don't hate female characters, we like scarlet witch and black widow but you notice how these characters that they often try to mention to prove they don't hate strong female superheroes are often characters that are either extra sexualized and usually side characters or even both, just to prove that notion that they only care female characters as eye candy only, black widow was first introduced as ironmans hot assistant while scarlet witch was showing cleavage in age of Ultron and they were good with that. When captain marvels first set photos were revealed instead of talking about the costume or anything, those people were objectifying her by saying she has a small butt and when Supergirl went to a full suit then their complain was about that why did she leave her short skirt dress because that's all these people care about, this kind of mentality needs to be removed from the fandom and people need to stop hating on characters just because they are strong and female. Strong female characters are important for young girls and women and if female characters are still sexualized that would leave a bad impression on the minds of girls that would watch thes movies. Characters like Carol Danvers are actually inspiring regardless of their gender as captain marvel as a half alien makes us realise what it means to be a human.
