I sometimes fear that in everyone’s urgency to promote feminism, they’re instead doing the opposite. Mako Mori from Pacific Rim helps make my case. How many people’s immediate reaction was to say she was there for eye candy or be a romantic interest rather than stand alone as a strong, independent character? How many people, even after seeing the movie, were quick to either sexualize her or point out every instance where she failed to act how they thought a “strong female" should? How are we, in our attempts to promote strong female characters, instead holding women to the same type of inhuman standard that we bitch at other people for doing (i.e., Virgin or Whore)?
