Took a walk and I'm still seething about the bad girl hero. The trope of unwashed, foul mouthed, abusive loner emerging as someone good hearted, doesn't much hold true for real life. How many of us would encourage our daughters or sons to stay with an abuser like that, thinking that "someday" they'll emerge as someone worth knowing?
