I see that a lot of women are appreciating the series but I am just disappointed and sad. I started to think and it pisses me off that I can not come up with a single female character who is supposed to just be ugly, old, unhygenic or just generally unappealing to men, not one! The she hulk model is just a normal fit woman with green skin and model face (she is not even remotely as jacked as real culturist women!!!), nothing like male hulk who despite "being a monster" can be loved. I want a woman's character who can also "be a monster" or just ugly and still be loved. Never seeing that is just depressing. Maybe I am complaining too much but I feel burried about how high the expectations of beauty on women are placed, like they are so high we can not even get a likeable female character who is not sexually appealing in some way. This is especially unjust watching how male characters can look in whatever way (be it real ugly actors like Adam Sandler or Danny Devito or cgi creations like Hulk, Thanos, etc.) and still be interesting, are we ever getting the same?

I wanted to like this show because a lot of men are angry about it, but it is just...not good. It's actually borderline embarrassing.

I'm not familiar with the lead actress but she is, to be blunt, fucking awful in this. Maybe she's been better in other things. She appears to be over 40, which is nice to see in Hollywood rather than casting another 18-year-old to be romantically paired with someone older than her dad. But there are a lot of talented actresses who would have done better. And the CGI is just...God awful. She looks ridiculous.

It literally feels like it was written by 5 misogynistic liberal guys who spend half their life defending feminist porn and one woman who wouldn't dare speak up to them. It's just bad. Really bad.

I feel like I'm being too mean about it, but I'm so tired of these fake feminist, progressive shows where they refuse to even let the main female character look muscular because it might make men's dicks sad.

LOL this perfectly sums up why so many modern "empowered female characters" suck. They feel like they're written by Tumblr libfems & lib-bros who have never had to live in the real world
