I fucking hate that weird stereotype around women and especially female characters where people automatically assume that mean and abusive means volatile and that if you’re free spirited and volatile it means that you’re a mean person and manipulative and you don’t like monogamy and you like sleeping around.
Its some weird ass stereotype among women. I am sure that shit happens but not all the time. I’d say I am a very free spirited, volatile, and difficult woman but I am not abusive. I put everyone else I care about before myself and I hate, hate hurting others. And I am pretty fucking monogamous (not implying that its bad not to be, just say that not all of us aren’t). Not every woman who is like that will automatically all be the same. Its one of the reasons I love Buffy Summers and Veronica Mars. They really take those kinds of stereotypes to task.
