So I was adding some new interests to my LJ profile (because I, uh... have some new interests. Yes.) and found myself feeling defensive every time I typed a female name, thinking, basically, FUCK YOU, SHE'S AWESOME, because I felt as if someone somewhere was going to be criticizing my love for them.
So, anyway, then I made a list of women who make me want to say FUCK YOU, SHE'S AWESOME. They are far from the only women who are awesome, or the only women people need to be told to step off of, but they are the top ten I feel that way about, right now, off the top of my head.
If you want to argue with me about the awesomeness of any of these women, I am afraid I will simply be referring you to the subject line. THAT IS ALL.
1. Donna Noble-Dr. Who
2. Martha Jones-Dr. Who

5. Lisa Cuddy-House MD

10. Lt. Uhura-Star Trek-Original series-Now and forever.
Obviously, I'm following the previous posters who have limited this meme to fictional characters, otherwise it could have gone in a completely different direction. :)
