Lucia from SH2, though? One of the worst.

Her ability once killed everyone on my team but her. If you factored in gameplay she'd be THE worst female character, bar none. At least all these women you escort don't actively kill you.

Good or bad, I really appreciate everyone's input.  I'm glad we were able to produce such debate and conversation.  Heartheart RPG culture.  These have been a treat to read.
A life lived for others is a life worthwhile.

Haha I'm glad you saw it as "debate stirring" than actual article criticism. :D

I am very impressed with Leyviur's many synonyms for being a bitch.
What can I say? I aim to please.

Oh... how many synonyms for, "Beautiful Gorgeous Dicey-kins?" :D

I do, on the other hand, get the occasional mixed feelings about posting clever, thoughtful, and well structured (to whatever extent) arguments about videogames....

I'd like to post them but I'd likely get fired, then banned. Sorry, babe.

I do promise, if I were to have a one night stand, it would have to be with a doctor.  Fulfill my daytime drama dream.

You know how some disapprove of certain members here being overtly sexual?

Yeah. I'd probably be banned.

Kay's still here.  I get the odd inkling that, like a poochy hearing their name, she'll see this and respond in kind.

i think my fundamental problem with this arguement is somewhat to my personal views.

for example this astrology profile of an Aries girl is what i view as a good female chara.

Quote
Dating an Aries never lacks excitement. She is hot-blooded, and forceful, so you had better be able to handle the heat! The Aries woman is for the person who likes an independent self-driven woman who can fend for herself and is not clingy and needy. An Aries woman requires freedom. For the Aries woman, the best part of the relationship is the beginning, then the spark is there and she is trying to catch you to be hers. She will find happiness in a long-term relationship because she enjoys sharing everything with her partner. She will not only have a romantic partner but a best friend too. She has a great need for love and passion but she will never let a man become the master, she considers her partner to be equal. Aries women are not for domineering men. She will be faithful but she expects the same in return. She can be jealous because she wants a man to give her all of his attention, "all or nothing", so her jealously is rooted in her possessiveness, she has to be number one in his eyes. She will always encourage and give strength to her partner so an Aries woman is great to have in times of despair or need, she will always be there for you. In order to have this happy ending, she needs to feel appreciated and loved.

Take it to PM. I'm sorry, but this is a positive female feature, and I'd like to have it stay that way.

Except there are lots of qualities that can determine what a strong personality is. If only people who are outwardly assertive are strong, that's just another stereotype; if someone was quiet but firm, would you say s/he is a weak person? You're pigeonholing characterization into your own viewpoint on how a 'strong' person should act, which is problematic on all sorts of levels.

Crazy how she looks older than a lot of 15+ anime/JRPG characters.
