I can't really relate to men or women doing that, as those aren't exactly traits/skills of mine. But while seeing male characters doing so can serve as wish fulfillment/projection fantasies, female characters can't.

I don't see what's so hard to grok about this. You're making a conflation of relatability and wish fulfillment I never have, and in so doing beating up on a straw man.
And why can't women fulfil that same wish fulfilment? What's so hard about watching the badass things the female protagonist is doing and imagining yourself in her position without also picturing yourself with a vagina?
