Thanks for commenting! And totally sympathize with exactly what you're talking about. I remember even being a kid and thinking well, I'm not the girlie girl who's always shown as the villain or being really annoying, but I'm not the tomboy because I hate sports so...am I good or not?
I was amazed that recently I saw a reference to a character in A Song of Ice and Fire who described as weak because she was mostly motivated by her children and not only did I think that was really unfair since children are important, but as part of focusing on her children she was involved in all sorts of political machinations.
Also I so agree about Peeta being compared to everyone that way! And a lot of the time it's clearly a person projecting their own self-hatred or guilt onto him. Those who survive the games by killing are going to relate to him very differently as a person who managed to get through intact. He gives them hope so they want to protect him.
