Does it bother anyone that sometimes there is an imbalance there in fiction? I mean, in my opinion, a strong female character is important (not some fluffy little helpless thing), but, don't you think she needs a strong male character to balance her out as well?
I have gotten to feel like the men aren't manly enough often times. Tarzan and Jane in the old black and white flicks, both strong characters who balanced each-other out. Rhett and Scarlett, Marguerite and Roxton... Lois and Clark... these are the characters that resonate as couples. The man is sexy and manly, not some dewey-eyed broody twit, not some Sheen-esque neanderthal.
