Buffy was the main character of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a television series that ran from 1997 to 2003 and has, even today, a cult following of devotees. Buffy was born of the idea of taking the scary-movie archetype of the frightened, helpless blonde and subverting it- establishing a protagonist who was prepared to, and repeatedly did, defend herself. This accounts for her feminist following a persevering fan devotion.
Guest blogger Jess LeClair writes about her personal experience with Buffy as an idol beyond the jump.
