I've also noticed a lot of films have started to become cringe worthy as well. james bond in particular. you have to put your suspension of disbelief into high gear and add in a dash of anti-chauvinistic pepper to cover the blandness of being of out touch with modern society.

james bond is deep in this predicament. also, so are horror films. how many have a female Jason slasher character. or in thrillers, how many have a female holding men hostage. strong female characters should not become mary sues to compensate for switching roles around and neither men becoming useless. the best way to move forward is to respect the character's flaws and attributes beyond old film roles so that either could play the same part in a script. In the force awakens, poe almost was a certain role and then they switched him out of fear in the last jedi. will james bond ever be a girl? doctor who is.

some arguments about motherly instinct for certain roles will certainly play out in many scenarios. public opinion about female soldiers still hasn't reached maturity even in the real world with the army just starting to admit then to infantry positions. movies can't become mainstream until society does; as movies need to please the majority of film-goers to make a profit.
