Wait. What?



Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times:

"This shrewd mixture of slick comic-book mayhem, unmistakable sweetness and ear-splitting profanity is poised to be a popular culture phenomenon because of its exact sense of the fantasies of the young male fanboy population."

Okay, first off "young male fanboy" is redundant, but whatever. And second, you're missing something, reviewer.

I know my personal tastes can cross some supposed lines, but, um...fangirl here!

Sigh...I've long since learned to ignore the supposed male-domination of our films, books,and movies, but really?

Really?

In all my fandoms, I'm acquainted with... um, maybe five male fans? All Whonatics, at that. The rest of us are fangirls, and usually squeeing fangirls. ;-)

My experience:

Star Wars-more male, but certainly not exclusive. Maybe 60-40. Possibly as high as 70-30, but I'd be surprised by that.

Star Trek-similar.

Stargate-males are as rare as living Triceratops.

Firefly-split nearly 50-50.

Comics-about 80-20 male, it's true.

I just thought this particular review was funny because a while ago, in a f-locked post, I went on and on about how if twelve year old me had been allowed to make a movie, this might have been it. I mean, come on! Males can think what they will, but as for me at twelve, um...yeah...Hit Girl would have been a dream come true!

(Not that I'm saying any twelve year old should see Kick-Ass - though there are likely some who could handle it. I'm just saying that I would have loved to at that age! Hit Girl would have been my hero! Oh, what am I saying? Hit Girl is my hero!)

I probably would have adored Hit Girl at 12 too, I grew up in the era of Batman (on tv) and my favorite episodes always had Bat Girl because she kicked ass. I think that while it's true that Star Trek and Star Wars have more male than female fans, although I am a huge fan of both, the female fans seem to be a bit more vocal and diversified. By that, I mean that while at a convention you're going to see more Kirks, Spocks, and McCoys, it's the women who, usually, write fanfiction, make videos, etc. At least that has been my experience.

I agree completely. In my experience, the female fans tend to be more "active" in their fandom pursuits (though men certainly do cosplay and role play) in terms of fanfic, etc.
