WisCon: Is Every Kickass Female Character a Mary Sue?

I don't have much to say about the Mary Sue panel. My co-panelists (Becky Allen, S. N. Arly, Jessica Plummer, Beth Plutchak) were all great, the audience was very enthusiastic, and we had a great time talking about Mary Sues we have loved and that were important to us and decrying the specific bad messages sent by Mary Sue hating to young girls and the general bad messages sent by sexism to everyone. It was a lot of fun and anyone who was there (or not!) and had something they particularly wanted to preserve for posterity should absolutely feel free to comment. (The text of my talk about Mary Sue, which I tried really hard to keep from just repeating verbatim, is over here.)
