FAN-GIRLS: Gosh, there are no lady-centric shows, books, movies, etc. Ladies only ever get to be the girlfriend or the mostly dead mother or the villain's girlfriend or the villain's mostly dead mother. This is an outrage and we must protest it!

ME: Too true. But there are some great lady-centric shows like Nikita and Revenge. They are not perfect but they are very lady-centric.

FAN-GIRL #1: Yeah, I've heard of those. Tried half an episode. It wasn't really my thing.

FAN-GIRL #2: Oh, I'll get round to watching it. I have a lot of other shows and books to read right now.

FAN-GIRL #3: Sure, I've watched a few episodes and it's OK. I just don't have much to say about it. (Unlike the #430918301th bromantic show that you see me blogging and writing fic about twice a day, every day except last Sundays).

ME: ....

FAN-GIRLS: Oh noes, Nikita is up for cancellation. They never give lady-centric shows a chance!

ME: ....

FAN-GIRLS: LEIA, why is there a dent in the shape of a palm on your face?

I will express my feelings on this via gifs:





Side note: At this point, for my own sanity, I do not even consider watching SHOWS ABOUT WHITE DUDES. I just don't. I only makes me angry. I'm kind of curious about Grimm; will never watch it, because I did my time with Supernatural. Same with White Collar and fucking Sherlock.

I'd be cooler with shows about white dudes if there weren't so many already and if all the possible iterations (including and especially the "no homo! haha!" version) have not been done to death. Still, I don't look down on anyone who finds that particularly story dynamic compelling. Just.don't. be the same person who's always ranting about how there are No.Good.Lady.Stories.Evah, ok? Because... seriously. Say what you mean and mean what you say and all that.

Ugh, I hate 'no homo' variations. The most recent Sherlock movied pissed me off (for one of many, many reasons) by doing that. It's like, 'if you want to have Sherlock and Watson be gay, HAVE THEM BE GAY.

Gosh, I hated that movie with the strength of a thousand new-born suns.
