who are equals in the friendship. Where one isn’t demonized for being a ‘typical girl’ and one isn’t held up to the heaven’s for ‘being one of the guys.’ Where stereotypical female traits aren’t held up to derision or to be laughed at, or where women don’t have to have attitudes like a man to be respected. Why can’t a woman enjoy fighting vampires and wearing nice shoes at the same time? Buffy the Vampire Slayer did just fine in that regard, but trying to find two ass-kicking women who like “girly things” now is like trying to find a dodo and a Tyrannosaurus Rex to rub together.
You know. Like real women.
