Re: Mary Sue

ok , ture , but ... when a man is a Mary Sue no one cares. It just seems to be term invented for hating women if there isnt another obvious excuse to do so.

If a mans a chiselled jawed hero everyones like "what guy"...

Hence theres no male equivalent term.

Actually, according to TV Tropes the term is 'Marty Stu/Gary Stu'. And it's just as much of a valid complaint for male characters.
