I like "morally compromised" (not in a mean girls/evil stepmom way) female characters a lot, because we're not getting a lot of deep characters with deep story anyway, this is definitely more entertaining to watch a woman kill and cheat her way to the top than to watch her be a no-fun moral-spewing man's ass savior, or a quirky womanchild, or being victimized for someone else's plot. I don't insist that it's more feminist to have a blatant sociopath in every movie, but I just like to watch this type of thing.
And they make sleazy "woke" types squirm like clockwork. GoT fanbase is a goldmine: "Sansa killing her abuser and smiling is the worst! Women needn't stop being feminine doormats to be Strong Characters, I swear! Let's just all have group rehab therapy where we forgive MAPs and non-consensual kinksters!"
Or "Cersei is baaad because she kills her political opponents uses her kids for powah, unlike every first male character who does the same shit!". Or "Cersei is baaad, because she tells a young girl that enemy soldiers are probably gonna rape them after they storm the gates, unlike 9000 'cool' male characters who r*pe their spoils of war on screen!". Or "Cersei is baaad because she has kids with her twin instead of a cheating r*pist violent pig she was married off to forcibly, who also has a fuckton ton of kids on the side!". Or anything Cersei at all.
Or like when a guy who posts guillotine and Punch The Nazis memes all day goes "You guys are crazy for treating a lone female warrior like a good character! She, like, hurts people, so unfemme! She's akchully a deranged murderer! Look, she bit off an ear of a bandit who tried to r*pe her! Shes Hannibal Lecter, except an actual psycho maniac!". Or "Noo, you can't kill a whole family of your enemies just because they killed your whole family! You must be an embodiment of femme strength and democratic socialist values as an orphan teen girl in a medieval dictatorship!".
Gone Girl is another masterpizza. "She's a baaad person, so he's a perfect little angel! See, it's like Johhny Depp situation, if his 999th victim isn't the sweetest girlie ever he's the actual victim! Remember, girls, never call cops on your fellow activists, if he's hitting you, it just means the revolution demands it! I'll get you one day, Ashley, this fucking imperialist restraint order can't stop me!".
Oh yes, Carol from Walking Dead seems pretty great too, though I didn't watch much: from an abused wife to a one-woman Rambo, and everyone hates her more than any baddie psychopath.
Something's up with "woke" disdain for any portrayals of female aggression ever unless it's after a juicy r*pe scene they can get off to. Even the first example isn't good enough for them, only really grotesque exploitation shit seems to suffice.
And then they'll be like "yeah, nice power-fantasy here sister! Now let's watch something realistic, like that one film where a woman breaks down in ladytears and has her gun taken from her hands when she confronts the badguy! Never forget, you literally can't hurt anything with your little ladybody, self-defense is victim blaming and your only hope for justice is the male court, with male laws, made by male government, so you better play nice".
It's like they'll deny the real crime rates and pretend it's all 50/50 and in the same breath get preachy about how revenge is a man's thing and you "lose your femininity" (as if it's something bad) the second you think about even being not nice to someone who hurt you, and so you shouldn't, but they're totally against gender norms. The mind-fuck is strong.
