Tumblr and the Desolation of Smaug
Tumblr users: Omg when will women ever get equal representation as men in movies why can't we have a strong female character who does what she wants and kicks ass and does what male characters typically do for a change.
Peter Jackson: (Gives the fandom a strong female character who holds an important military position in an elf squadron and is a total badass and does what she feels is right even when all the men around her are being ass holes and who rescues another tough, heroic male character who has been put in a situation where he has essentially become a damsel in distress and she has become his knight in shining armor, which is what male characters typically do).
Tumbr users: Omg this Tauriel chick is such a bad female character i mean there are TWO guys in this movie who may possibly LOVE her ew no take it away love stories are for the dark ages they have no place in the modern world plus they're so sexist god forbid women fall in love it makes them look weak.
