I hate to mention the feminist problem, but, alot of these so called male feminists have no idea how to write or develop a strong female character, and then they rail for diversity, the tragedy is, to them diversity is only skin deep.
The fact that they’re dumb, and think they’re geniuses, then get mad when you point out that they aren’t speaks volumes about the problems plaguing this franchise.

I consider myself a male feminist, but I tend to agree. People like Wes Craven, J. Michael Straczynski, and the writing staff of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine knew how to do strong female characters right; good luck finding anyone of their calibre in present Hollyweird.

There is a difference between 2nd wave and (3rd and 4th wave) feminists.
Ridley Scott gave us a badass in the first Alien, with a very minimal script.
DS9 had Nerys.
Fringe had Olivia Dunham.
I’m not opposed to strong female characters or feminist themes.
But there is a major discrepancy between the classic variety and the modern variety.
