rule 63 where they sexualize the counterpart, make all the females willowy and attractive despite how gruff and buff the male is, and whitewash everyone
YES! lol This happens when i see most movies, it’s a big NO.
Yeah, it seems like, in mainstream media, when a male character gets a female counterpart, the female character is almost always far more sexualized than the male character. (And when a female character gets a male counterpart, it’s pretty frakkin’ rare for the male character to get the Hawkeye Initiative treatment.)
