If a female character kicks ass, she’s overpowered. If a female character can’t defend herself, she’s unnecessary. If a female character acts nice, she’s boring. If a female character acts mean, she’s a bitch. If a female character shows no emotion, she’s heartless. If a female character shows emotion, she’s weak. What can a female character do without being criticized mercilessly?

Maybe she could try being well-written.

oh my god yes of course. SHE, the fictional character almost always written by cishet white men, should try being WELL-WRITTEN!!!!!! god it’s so obvious now!!!! this whole time we were focusing on systematic and internalized misogyny creating unachievably high standards for women while we simultaneously give men a free pass on everything under the sun WHEN IN FACT it was just the character’s fault for not being written better!!!!!!!! whew i’m glad we cleared that up

this is a cool test that gives you an rpg class and there are 100 possible results check it out

I took this with a few characters in mind. First up:

Heidi (combo of SS and DT) -The Blacksmith 38% Strength, 25% Bloodlust, 25% Intelligence, 17% Spirit, 17% Vitality and 25% Agility! 

You are the Blacksmith, a mighty spellcaster skilled in constructing weapons and augmenting those weapons with powerful magic. By adding magical properties to your weapons, you are able to take down incredibly strong and dangerous foes. Indeed, you a very a balanced person, which makes you incredibly strong and dangerous. By combining your superior spellcasting abilities with your deadly combat and weapon skills, you can easily take down many obstacles in your path. Furthermore, you are an invaluable support to your allies, since you can easily construct and augment powerful enchanted weapons. While you may be quite powerful, you have not yet fully mastered all you skills. To reach the more advanced classes, you must focus your choices more on weapons and magic.

This special class is a precursor to the following advanced classes:

The Gear Enchanter

The Mirror Mage

The Battle Warlock

Lorelei: The Shinobi [Sa]

18% Strength, 15% Bloodlust, 27% Intelligence, 32% Spirit, 23% Vitality and 33% Agility! (o.O, Lor’s in a wheel chair, guys.) 

You are the Shinobi, a cunning and agile warrior skilled in stealth and magic. The Shinobi uses ninjutsu to silently place traps and use elemental techniques in order to stealthily assassinate opponents. You may even have a few support and healing spells up that shadowy sleeve of yours! Whether or not you are purely good or evil is uncertain; however, what is absolutely true is that you are crafty, brilliant, and knowledgeable allowing you to swiftly and easily eliminate your foes. I sense greatness and potential hidden within you, but while you are quite strong, you have not fully mastered your skills. In order to reach the higher classes, you must focus on improving your agility as well as your magic ninjutsu skills.

Continuing down the path of the sage and improving your light, healing, and defensive magic will lead you to the Ninja Sennin. If instead you take the path of the magician and improve your elemental magic, you will reach the Ninja Master.
