    Ok, so it's alright if you're not keen on Isabella, or if you sincerely believe that kids shouldn't be leads in a TF movie (although i would disagree with you) but I think as Transformers fans (MV or otherwise) and as human beings, we should stand ourselves apart from the "fans" who seem to want to vent their ignorance, idiocy, and sexism by attacking this young actress for doing the job she's paid to, and doing it well, from what I can see.

    I don't know if hashtags are still cool, but i think we should show support by adding #yeahifightlikeagirl into your sigs and beyond. And maybe leaving a little message here too. Or points to the contrary if you wish.

    Maybe just write "Yeah i fight like a girl!" if hashtags are too lame :lol  (sorry, i'm not into twitter!)

    Who's with me?

    EDIT: Just to clarify, as it's come back to haunt me, this thread was inspired by the attacks made on Isabella's FB page for her being a strong female child lead in a Transformer movie.

    I could see this thread turning south rather quickly.

    I know, but if it does, it'll still have served a purpose of ratting out the lowlifes!!

    There are definitely instances of female characters whom I feel are not that interesting and seem to me to be token females. However, I really like Izabella so far and think she has potential. Then again I liked Tessa a lot more than most and thought she had a lot of positive qualities that were overlooked.

    I think Izabella has potential. One thing I do like about her is that she doesn't seem quirky just for the sake of being quirky. Nor is she entirely this mary sue badass based on what I have seen so far; Cade scolds her for presumably almost getting killed.

    I don't like Windblade, Arcee, Victorion, or many femmebots outside of the Beast Era or Animated, but I like Verity Carlo and Tessa, and I think we all should give Izabella a shot. Just like we should give Sqweeks, the redesigned Megatron and Barricade, Hot Rod, etc. shots. Let's see how these characters play on the big screen.

    I can roll with this. I absolutely abhor the bullying that has been addressed toward this child, of all targets.

    Yeah, people who are sending hate messages to Izzy are out of their minds, she's just doing what's she has to and doing a good job at it

    I already put it on my sig:)

    I love how some are saying ''In reality a little girl would not stand up to the Decepticons.''... like it's the least plausible thing out of the entire concept.

    As long as there isn't any weird creepy sexual stuff with our underaged female lead character I'll be happy. And it looks like there won't be with the direction of the trailer so kudos for Michael Bay, showing some real growth here, even if it comes across a bit forced and awkward.

    It is funny to me that this franchise about kids toys really hasn't had kids in it until now, and while I'm not hopeful about the movie as a whole maybe the kids will be a fun part in it. Maybe Izzy can command a horde of little transformers that can overwhelm and tear apart a bigger one...

    People who claim they aren't going to see the movie because of a strong female co-lead is insane. Why would you miss an opportunity to see this movie, especially after seeing the action in that trailer and the potential for TF1 type magic, simply because you want to be this manly macho dude who can't watch an orphan girl play a lead role. Yes, the trailer may have been marketed a little too hard, but simply because the United State's doesn't value women as much as it should. Also, a lot of fans who are simply explosion and boob fans are fans of Michael Bay for that reason. I'll never forget, my roommate told me he loved the first transformers and I thought we were about to bond like crazy. While I wanted to discuss the mystery of the transformers' origins, he preceded to talk about Megan Fox's body for an hour and didn't mention the transformers. These are the type of people who are mad.

    I think her character is great so far and she gives some mich needed spunk to what have been rather bland female leads of the past movies.
