Fandom feminism discussion (aka wankbait)!

Found on fandomsecrets, like all headdesk-inducing things these days:

I love strong girls. I get pissed off when girls act like spineless whiny ninnies. Then I realize that not every girl can be as awesome as me. XD Someone's gotta be the weak useless foil that makes the good girls shine.

I can't believe I never noticed this before.

In fandom and perhaps in other parts of life, "strong kickass tough girl/'weak' gentle girly girl" is the new madonna/whore dichotomy. All while the old one still exists in the background (and sometimes in the foreground).

Discuss.

(Yes, I'm being serious, but feel free to also bring the lulz, because otherwise I may get too cranky.)
