What positive images of female sexuality can you think of in popular media?

Question of the day: What positive images of female sexuality can you think of in popular media?

Well, I can think of a few.

^_^

Buffy as played by Sarah Michelle Gellar along with castmates in the pic below (Randomly got it off of Google. Don't own the pic.).

...

Oh!

...

Don't forget Willow as played by Alyson Hannigan.

Thought it was a great pic to put up. Besides, It has the most of the cast in it.:



:D

Fred from Angel played by the lovely Amy Acker:



Lucy Lawless as Xena: Warrior Princess and Renee O'Conner as Gabrielle. Anyone remember that show?



Alison Mack who plays Chloe Sullivan on Smallvile:



Kristen Kruek who played Lana Lang on Smallville (pic from Kryptonsite.com):



Erica Durance who plays Lois Lane on Smallville (pic from Kryptonsite.com):



Cassidy Freeman as Tess Mercer on Smallville (pic courtesy of Kryptonsite.com):



And finally Laura Vandervoort who played Kara Kent/Supergirl on Smallville.

I tried to find a pic that wasn't "skanky", so,I found a screencap from an episode, instead.

The episode is called "Lara" If you want to check it out)[pic is from Kryptonsite.com.]:




Besides, Helen Slater is in that episode. It's been 20 years or so since she was in Supergirl: The Movie, and she still looks amazing! (pic is also from kyptonsite.com):



Still from Supergirl: The Movie (which I have on DVD at home.):



Another still:




Joan, as played by Amber Tamblyn, from Joan of Arcadia. (She's the one on the lower right-hand side):



Kristen Bell
as Veronica Mars (She's the short-cropped blond on the right):



Amanda Tapping who plays Dr Helen Magnus on Sanctuary (the dark-haired female in the picture):




She even did an interview regarding the women of the Stargate Universe which I found intriguing:

Even Ellen DeGeneres had a Sit-Com:



Anyone remember the epic "Puppy Episode"?

(Which I thought was wonderful!)

The only thing I hated was when the network decided to put a censor on it, when the show returned.

Even the ladies of CSI: Crime Scene Investigations, CSI: NY, and NCIS, aren't your "typical" run-of-the-mill stereotypical ladies that you see on TV.

From the comics:

Spidergirl.

C'mon, she's the daughter of Mary Jane and Peter Parker! I had to put her up here for some credit.

Besides, it's a wonderfully written series.




Supergirl from 1996-2003 (I had to put this up because I grew up reading this series.):




Supergirl of Today's Era (pics are taken from Supergirl Comic Box Commentary):

From Issue 50:



Another awesome image:



Now, each of the characters here are strong females-whether physically or not- that break the mold of the "traditional housewife".

I grew up in the 90's. So, I got to see a lot of great shows with females that take the lead. And it's hard to like just one. :D

Not only are they/the characters sarcastic, they do things guys could do: kick butt and fight crime without breaking a nail.

They can even stand their own in a fight. Which you didn't see too often in other TV shows.

C'mon, we need more of that nowadays!

We don't need "reality" shows like "Jersey Shore", or shows like "America's Next Top Model".

(I mean, I like ANTM.)

I just don't like "Jersey Shore": it's stereotped.

Besides, it's hard to see something on screen when you know it isn't how they act in real life. Everything nowadays, is screened under the fact that it's stereotyped.

Can't we have more females that aren't stereotyped and degraded to nothing more than "hot bimbos"?
