When a woman is “fridged,” it means that she has been killed or harmed for the plot or character advancement of a dude. Did you guys see Thor: The Dark World?? Remember how a woman gets murdered, and that forces the brothers to work together and grow and stuff? That’s fridging. It’s uncool. Tragically, fridging happens way too often in media – and here’s a painful supercut to remind us of that fact.
Fun fact: Comics writer Gail Simone coined the term “women in refrigerators” after she read an issue of Green Lantern where the titular hero comes home to find his girlfriend has been killed and stuffed in the fridge. Cute.
