Just because it didn’t go the way you wanted with Irma doesn’t mean it was poor writing.

"I’m calling Nick out."

Have you actually listened to how ridiculously self righteous you all sound?

You could pick fault with every single character in this series for one reason or another. Male AND female.

It’s the same people, every episode. Stop watching it if it irks you so much.

Stop thinking you speak for womankind, both in general and in the TMNT fanbase, and how it’s represented in the cartoon because you don’t. I didn’t ask you to speak for me and I’m pretty sure there’s a lot of female turtle fans who didn’t ask you to speak for them either.

Irma was a douche character anyway. She got herself into as many scrapes as April, needing to be rescued again and again. She was completely clueless about pretty much everything. All she ever talked about was men, men, men.

And you want a character like that in a cartoon where the female proportion of the fanbase is steadily increasing? You want little girls to think that all there is to life is men and depending on men and being unable to function or be happy without men?

(I’m not saying that the new Irma would necessarily have been that hopeless - but that’s what she’s usually stood for in the past.)

I’d rather have less female characters and they be well rounded strong influences, than have a whole host of dozy floozeballs.

Quality over quantity.

We have to think about the future generation when it comes to representing women in media and not about our own selfish needs and desires or preferences.

Oooh. I was so determined not to argue with anyone when I went into this tag.

Okay, so I’ll grant you that some people are getting a little bit self-righteous on the subject. To me, it’s one problematic thing in a TV show and all TV shows have problematic things, so while it’s really irritating, I can keep it in perspective. I won’t be sending in protest letters or anything, I’ll just chalk it up as another side-effect of living in a sexist society.

BUT:

"Stop thinking you speak for womankind, both in general and in the TMNT fanbase, and how it’s represented in the cartoon because you don’t."

The thing is, people are pissed off and they have a fair point here - three recurring female characters was not a lot to ask for. And yeah, maybe some of them are getting on their high horses a little, but that’s because it matters for them. I’m pretty sure nobody ever opened a post with “I speak for all women when I say we’re all MEGA-PISSED.”

"Irma was a douche character anyway. She got herself into as many scrapes as April, needing to be rescued again."

She ended up in the position of rescuee too many times, yeah. The solution to that isn’t getting rid, the solution is simply not to have her kidnapped so often. This wouldn’t have been difficult to achieve. 

"She was completely clueless about pretty much everything. All she ever talked about was men, men, men."

You must be confusing her with the 80s version, because she was actually quite astute and the only man she ever talked to, or about, was Casey. And only then because she was full of disdain for him. Her attitude to men couldn’t have been different from 1987 Irma.

"(I’m not saying that the new Irma would necessarily have been that hopeless - but that’s what she’s usually stood for in the past.)"

The fact she DIDN’T stand for that and didn’t look like she was ever going to stand for that is another reason why people thought she was a Good Thing.

"Quality over quantity."

No. BOTH. It’s not unreasonable to expect quality AND quantity.

"We have to think about the future generation when it comes to representing women in media and not about our own selfish needs and desires or preferences."

I think when we think about women in the media, we have to look at our own attitudes to female characters and think about where they come from. For example, your failure to differentiate between 1987 Irma and 2k12 Irma seems to indicate a weariness or suspicion of female characters in general. Your belief that we can only have quality OR quantity seems to indicate low expectations.

Also, how is it a selfish desire to wish we lived in a world where more than two female characters in a kid’s cartoon isn’t considered conspicuous, strange or asking for too much?

Hooray! It’s time once again to visit the Duck Fashion Show, where haute couture meets sassy waterfowl models. For the past 30 years Australian farmer Brian Harrington has been dressing up and showing off his Famous Ducks at the Fashionable Ducks Show, held during Sydney’s annual Royal Easter Show. Harrington works with a professional dressmaker who individually styles each duck in an impressively elaborate costume. The outfits range from day and evening wear, in both modern and period styles, to fancy bridal wear. Each year the beautifully dressed-up ducks waddle parade along a duck-sized runway before an enthusiastic crowd that numbers in the hundreds.

Visit Brian Harrington’s website to learn more about his fabulous Famous Ducks.
