ooo, here via metafandom, and I was *just* thinking about this last night. And I think I'll write up something more, but the essence is that when I was younger all my heroes were women/girls, and somewhere that shifted. And I think it shifted when I started watching television rather than reading books, and I think it shifted around puberty/high school, and I think some of it has to do with that internalized "male gaze," and I think it has to do with the fact that for such a long time the only options for cool characters in tv/movie fandoms were male.

That's changing, with Buffy and BSG especially.
