EVERY female character in TV and film is now exceptionally determined and hard as nails.
Consumers of entertainment are puzzled as to why all female characters have suddenly become natural leaders or acquired superhero-style fighting abilities.
Office worker Donna Sheridan said: “In every period drama I’ve seen recently a female character takes charge of everything, when in real life she would probably have been told to go away and do some needlepoint.
“Then last night I watched a thriller and realised it was the third time this week I’d seen a nine-stone woman batter the fuck out of blokes with three times her body mass.”
Television fan Tom Logan said: ”I was going to ask my girlfriend why all the women on telly are dead hard but I was afraid she’d punch me in the windpipe and throw me through a window.”
Cultural historian Emma Bradford said: “Strong fictional women may be an attempt to compensate for years of weak female characters who were just there to look nice, get murdered or listen to important exposition.”
”However, it’s equally likely that producers think more people would have gone to see Die Hard if Bruce Willis had tits.”
