I said this about the classic SF I devoured when I was very young, and I think it makes sense and wanted to share it here:

"... I loved SF as a kid, and I still do. However, those female characters in the earlier stories? I never wanted to be them. I wanted to be the hero. I wanted to fly the ship, fight the aliens, explore the planets, translate the alien texts, get lost in the sands of Mars. The female characters were not the heroes. They added depth to stories for boys. They paved the way for female characters who got to be heroes. But they were not the heroes."

Guess who we were talking about?
