Enter: Jenny a (not so) digital character that is fed up with representation of her peers. Whenever she feels the urge to engage in artistic labour she performs her dissatisfaction with oppressive systems through the power of DJing and high fashion. She is a fi erce debatress and uses her knowledge and charme to advance the queer agenda. When attending in political events she loves to rock a formal but sassy style.

LIKES:

DISLIKES:

BUTCH THERAPY:
In heteronormative storylines “masculine” femmes have no place. Their sexual preference causes them to not be interest ed in the leading male character, which in turn makes it too diffi cult for narratives to address complex female personalities that don‘t exclusively revolve about romance. Solution: They die or they surrender to male flirt attacks and turn straight

NEO-CHRISTIAN MARTYRDOM:
An imminent apocalypse will be avoided by a dramatic sacrifi ce of everyone’s favourite female character. Did our girls really just die so men can revel in their “happy ending”?

HETERO FUTURITY:
Marriage, motherhood, houseworks. Powerful magic or sword-wielding femmes turn domestic and are deprived of any agency in their post-ending
story-arc fantasy. Divorce is usually not considered.

BEING A ROYAL HEIRESS:
There she suff ers from royal inhibitions, aristocratic power structures and potentially cursing their children with the same fate of royal succession.
