I think the main difference between a hero and a heroine in traditional narratives is that a hero’s strength is defined by how much he can win, while a heroine’s is defined by how much loss she can endure.
I think that’s kinda fucked up.
I have noticed this trend as well. I’ve heard a LOT of writers talking about how you have to break women down, hurt them, and humiliate them in order for the audience to find them sympathetic heroes, in ways that are not applied, at least not in the same quantity, to male characters.

It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
I mean, it’s just true.
“Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
That’s it. That’s it right there.
