What's even weirder to me is that they already had a made-up (Hobbit-wise anyway) character sitting in the wings to fulfill her made-up role -- Legolas -- but instead they marginalized him and made things even more complicated. Again, all for the sake of having a female character, which I can respect to an extent (but also it's like we're all being force-fed feminism in a situation where it can't help).
