does fandom subconsciously (or willingly) have double standards when it comes to the transformers gender or sex. When I have heard people hating on airachnid , often the reasons they gave were similar to the reasons they thought overlord from last stand of the wreckers was awesome or 'bad-ass' and I have noticed some people wanting to know about her troubled past as if she must have some kind of sob story or been a victim being a female villain, I don't think anyone asked to hear about overlords troubled past did they? . Same goes for arcee the criticisms leveled at her are often given as positives when related to other troubled heroic types or spontaneous characters like dinobot or hot rod. I know that fandom hasn't always disliked all female characters like say slipstream, strika, blackarachnia or crasher but I can't help notcing a slight imbalance in places what do you think?
