Before I start though, please know that these are my opinions, and you are entitled to your own! This post is not meant to offend anyone.
I was recently reading the Brotherband series, mostly because my sister wanted me too, and I was...appalled at Lydia. She was literally everything I hate in a girl character. Whhhhy? Why do authors keep ruining girls? It's not realistic at all! *barfs*
All of the girls are slender, small, tanned, graceful, pretty, it's all the same! Why can't some of them be slightly chunky, tall, normally colored, uncoordinated and awkward, or average looking? They're out there, I promise. You may have to search through all of the actresses and models on Pinterest, but they're there.
And when they repeat their perfect appearances and constantly say they're pretty, it's sooo obnoxious.
Because, let's face it, 99.9999 percent of girls are food addicts. I love coffee and French fries, Jennifer Lawrence loves pizza, it's totally a thing.
How they interact with boys
Boys are not awkward and babbly when a girl shows up, they get really quite. I know, I have a bro, and friends, and bro's friends. And trust me, when a girl is cute, not every boy falls in love with her, they aren't fighting over her, and she doesn't smile at them. She's more likely to be kind of annoyed with them.
I loooove sarcastic girls, I do! But...are they all sarcastic? Some of them aren't, right? Some of them are nice, and they can be sarcastic, but not all of the time! Sarcastic girls are confident, confident is good, always confident leads to arrogance, arrogance is baaaaad! Arrogance make me want them to die or get eaten by a turtle or something.
Not all girls are super brave, I mean there are totally scaredy cats out there. Cowering idjits isn't cool, but girls who can do it all aren't cool either. Trust me on that. Some girls actually cry and break down sometimes, they aren't always the first to volunteer...*cough* First Jumper *cough*
That about wraps it up, thanks for reading!
Did you agree with any of this? What annoys you in a girl characters? Are you a Tris Prior fan?
