Linkies. And yeah, he's quoting someone, but I'm sure its a reflection of his own views.

Third, if your superheroine is stronger than any normal man, and does not need Prince Charming to settle the hash of the evil dragon, but can wield the sword herself, you can either leave out your male love interest, or...

Whoa, hold up!

Now lets just say the 'or' involves giving the male interest supernatural powers - it isn't going to get any more interesting from Vox's quote on that.

But are you seeing what I'm seeing here?

Isn't it kind of facinating?

I'm not sure I grasp the full psychological frame of it.

It's just utterly facination how it seems, by quoting this stuff, he feels there is no place for such a male. Such a male is completely useless and pointless.

Can you get a glimpse of that dystopian worldview that I get a glimpse of in seeing this? No place for a man at all! Practically man hating...

Yes - but how much can a man be likable when inside he hates himself (only if he's stronger, does he not lothe)?

It's like an amazingly apt reason as to maybe why he's such a wrecking ball.
