We have so many characters and several of those are really strong and cool.
But when I look at the females among them I somehow feel disappointed.

Let's scroll through:
Ino, Tenten, Hinata....they all are nothing compared to their male companions. They might have their own special techniques and strengths but you would never compare them to Lee, Neji, whoever. Even Shikamaru is cooler. He may not have so much phyiscal strength but he uses his techniques well and is much smarter.
Sakura...she was kind of useless in part 1 (no offense! :p). Although her chakra ability control is top-notch she couldn't fight very well. Chuunin exam, forest: I thought she would shine against the Sound nins while Naruto and Sasuke were knocked out. But bah....only Kawamiri No Jutsu...so lame. Credits to her that she even tried.
Part 2: Finally, she has some insane strength due to Tsunade's training. I was so happy and thought she could rip some enemies apart. And now we see her childish behaviour in chapter 296. This is not how a shinobi should be.
So overall in terms of what a good ninja in a fight might determine she is more of a disappointment.
Temari...she is not weak but not the strongest either. Something in the middle. Doesn't blow me away.
Tsunade...finally someone who is even a Sannin and super strong. Regarding physical strength noone can compare. But even she isn't as cool as Oro or Jiraya. In the great Sannin fight we saw she slacked off because seeing blood. Although it is understandable considering her painful past it is somehow "uncool". Typically girlish behaviour. Kishimoto kills his female characters with such trivial shortcomings.

The male characters in comparison might have their own weaknesses and they also lose sometimes but overall it doesn't derogate their toughness.
For example, Kakashi: He terribly lost against Itachi facing the Tsukiyomi. Does anyone think now that he is weak? NO.

Let's think about this:
Is there any girl who could be a serious opposer to Naruto? Nope.
Boys? Enough. Neji, Gaara, Sasuke, Shino... I don't deny that Naruto has beaten Neji and Gaara but both times it wasn't easy. Now lets imagine a Tenten - Naruto fight.  :notrust Haha...this is a joke, isn't it?

I haven't seen any male character failing in a fight because of trivial matters. But the females....perhaps it's the typical view of how japanese women should be: nice, girlish, someone you should protect.

I'm desparately waiting for a female character who is really tough. She might lose but she will not sink in my respect.

What do you think?
Please convince me that Naruto's females are not weak! Gimme some facts so that I can consider a female character in Naruto really tough and strong!

i've added "( part 2 spoilers!! )" to the title, because you mentioned sakura's actions in part 2 - K
