So I posted my story earlier of how I ended up here in the forum. Now, I have another question regarding how I get triggered with female protagonists in stories hurting male supporting characters, belittling them, for no reason with no repercussions. A lot of authors I read tend to utilize this trope and it turns me off and makes me think of suicide (due to me being hurt by girls and women in my past). What do I do? How do I combat this? The only stories I've enjoyed with a strong female protagonist is The Hunger Games Trilogy and we all know how people love to accuse the author of ripping off the novel Battle Royale so that puts me an awkward predicament. Remember, I can't afford therapy. Heck I can't even afford a DENTAL APPOINTMENT. So what can a person do?
