    1. In real life people will be found all over the place on that spectrum. In fiction and other popular entertainment, ninety pound women are, with ever greater frequency, found on the ‘bad-ass’ end of the spectrum. It has gotten so bad, so predictable and downright boring that I will avoid, with extreme prejudice, any film or tv show that features one of these deadly, ‘I don’t need no saving damsels’ just as I summarily dismiss any book with a gun-toting or sword-wielding heroine on the cover.

      My disbelief will no longer allow itself to be suspended by this modern trope.

      I’ll check out your story over the weekend.
