Video description
It's time to talk about one of the most polarizing tropes in existence - but, unusually, this trope is highly polarizing on a PERSONAL level, as most people seem to simultaneously love and hate it!

This is a trope that can be done really well or *really* badly, and when it's done well it can work REALLY well, but when it's done badly it can be tedious at best and downright insulting at worst. But today we'll be talking about what happens when you do damseling RIGHT, because I'm optimistic like that.

Who's your favorite damsel, and what kind of damseling do you think works best? Drop a comment to let the world know!

EXAMPLES USED: Legion of Superheroes (episode 2), Disney's Hercules, Yu-Gi-Oh! (episode 70), Danny Phantom (Beauty Marked), Disney's Aladdin, Berserk, Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, Batman Beyond (Curse of the Kobra part 2), Batman: The Animated Series (Mad Love), Justice League (Starcrossed part 2), Justice League (A Better World part 2), The Princess Bride, Star Wars Episode II, Lupin III (season 2 episode 145), Voltron: Legendary Defender (season 1 episode 7),
