Can we please retire the term “strong female character” in 2016? Why do we still need two different qualifiers to anticipate people’s assumptions that a character will be male unless otherwise stated, and if that character is female, she will be weak unless otherwise stated? Rey and Jessica Jones and Furiosa are not “strong female characters”. They are just “characters”.
