Wow, you banned someone for pointing out a valid flaw! Wow!

So why is it that every single book/movie/bit of media has to absolutely have some person of crap - err, colour - that is allegedly noble and the female character has to be uber strong and wise? According to your own criticisms, this should be ringing the Mary-Sue bells, but it doesn't. All I see is narcissism typical of feminist circles: rude, condescending, know-it-alls that cannot accept the fact that race and gender do exist and that they do have roles.

Oh, no, whites are intelligent! Stop the presses! Well, after all, whites are responsible for 98% of inventions, and you are a white woman, meaning you are one of the most privileged people on Earth.

The "Company" series seems flawed anyways, considering that there are still primitive tribes on Earth when technology and disease could have destroyed them. And the fact that whites are still the ruling class; no that is just completely unacceptable. In the future, and today, people of crap give nothing to society. None. They lower standards and destroy societies.

For someone who constantly rants on tropes and Mary-Sues, you don't seem to realize that Mary-Sues are the logical conclusion of feminism: they are strong, independent, powerful females that can do whatever they want. Modern "heroines" are not heroines at all, but feminist archetypes that believe they can do whatever they want. It is unrealistic given that women are weaker than men, are 5-6 IQ points lower than men, and are physically unable to perform the tasks that you label as "good". But whenever there are gender norms, oh fucking no, that's not right. It's "bad writing."

I've said this before: don't act like a Nobel Laureate when all you have is the typical liberal mantra.

how does it feel to be so racist and sexist that you're essentially a broken human being?
