Bad Female Characters

I grow tired of Cho Cho sans
Old women who sleep with disdainful young men
Hungry for the security of mother’s teat
Young vixens whose ultimate weapon
Are their cunts instead of their cunning
Bastardized parodies of strong women
Weak and meager to the bones
Portrayals that make me mistake them
From the real thing

    1. I was reading a Pulitzer Prize winner and the main character was treating his father’s old mistress with contempt even though he also slept with her after the father’s death. And then the mistress commits suicide because the MC’s thinking about marrying this young girl. *headpalm*
