… individuals who call strong women characters “men with breasts” or “Amazons” (same tone as “Unicorns”) are missing something very important. They’ve probably realized that superheroes are an “Adolescent Power Fantasy” because that much is obvious. But they think of twelve year old boys when they think of it. They haven’t looked beyond their own gender to realize that woman also have “Adolescent Power Fantasies.” It’s unheard of, because females are supposed to fantasize about love and romance and world peace and crap like that. Women don’t want to be punch out the people who offend them. That’s ridiculous, only men have those impulses.
