Why can’t women be heroes without sex appeal?

Whenever television wants to showcase a woman being a cool hero, she always has to have some sort of sex appeal. It’s like the producers of the show know how every single man works, so whenever a woman appears on screen the first thing every man thinks about is how she would look naked and whether or not he would have sex with her. In turn, this effects women’s ability to just be plain hardcore. For some reason, women can’t kill a villain without showing a bit of cleavage, and it’s not actually that fair.

A good example of this is Kate Beckett from ABC’s major ratings hit Castle, which stars Stana Katic as the heroic detective. Beckett is a kickass heroine, some might say she’s an action girl or a femme fatale, but on the whole she is the hard boiled cop who gets stuff done, takes no nonsense and isn’t afraid to shoot the bad guy dead if the case requires it. She’s pretty cool, but throughout the series we’re lead to certain scenes where Beckett is dressed up or “sexified”, likely to satisfy a male audience. The issue is that Beckett is already a great cop and she is very career centric, but she has men drag her down throughout. She’s shown as a stiff during Season 1 because of her lack of sexual encounters as she talks with Lanie Parish. Continue reading »
