Despicable She: 17 Sassy Skirts Who Get on My Last Nerve

By Cindy Davis | Seriously Random Lists | July 31, 2013 | Comments ()


There’s definitely a different dynamic between the dislike we have for certain male television characters and females; is it all in the gender? What would be the difference if Walter White was a woman, or someone like Jax Teller? Jemma is a pretty good representation of the female version of her son, and as much as we can’t stand some of the things she does, we still love her—she’s strong, opinionated, and she knows how to get what she wants. But Jemma is an exception. We don’t get enough truly strong women; instead we’re served up false representations—supposedly capable characters incessantly complaining or whining, or women who are supposed to be smart, making idiotic decisions. It’s positively infuriating. Listen, I myself can be difficult, ornery, contrary…what have you, but that doesn’t mean I can’t criticize others for the same. Does it? What’s that you say—hypocritical? Yeah, there a few of that sort on this list too.
