Why is it that Star Wars, which has always promoted strong female characters in all its movies, has so many fans that are misogynists?
You realize if you overuse a word, for every description possible, as well as militarize it and effectively bombard it at anyone you don't agree with, that it loses all meaning?
"misogynist" used to actually mean men who hate women, now it's just "anyone who criticizes a woman"
hopefully you're trolling
VIRGINITY LEADS TO HATE, HATE LEADS TO ANGER, ANGER LEADS TO SUFFERINGGG
It's all quite simple and logical;
As they promote strong female characters, they female fan ratio increases, and women hate nothing more than other women so the misogynist ratio also increases proportionally
Stop with this meme. I beg of you if I here it one more time I might go on a rampage and shoot up a church or some shit. We have endure Mary sue men in every action movie for the past decades. This is the first movie and it's way better cut face Dickhead Asshole mother cuter jew suckered.
Only sadfucks that have never kissed a girl and still live with their parents could be capable of such pathetic acts.
>it's ok for a character to be shit because some other characters in some other movies were shit
fuck off. Rey is a horribly written character and there are literally no arguments to defend her
Not once have a seen a girl have the skills above a man in arenas I've studied, I'm more ready to believe a man is a John rambo because of his look then a woman is a mary sue because of hers. Pure prejudice, yet it has never been wrong by my measure and I prefer to be right even at the cost being shamed.
Quick question: is there even such a thing as a real life female action hero?
they're usually the first to tuck tail and run and will happily let men die in their stead (see Titanic)
They won't even spend years prepare their body for going into a burning building and rescuing their baby if need be, it's all a ruse because her only concern is "He will" which solves everything.
You know Star Wars fans, and geeks and nerds in general, have always been fighting and arguing over things, long before women shoehorned their way into their hobbies?
Long before SJWs were sticking their hands into everything crying rape, Star Wars nerds were getting their panties in a bunch over Jawas, the Star Wars Christmas Special, Han Solo's blaster and all sorts of inconsequential shit. It's what nerds do, they get in flame wars over minuscule things, and if you can't handle the heat stay out of the figurative kitchen and go back to the literal kitchen.
I'm really starting to believe that women, on a fundamental level, don't understand debate and criticism
Like how to argue, why arguing happens, how to see different perspectives, how to not take movie criticisms personally (and it really seems like many of them are taking the criticisms of Rey as a criticism of themselves, or their gender, for whatever insecure reason)
It's like they think the old societal adage of "just let her win the argument" applies to media domains that they're just now forcing their way into
>Giving Leia the more slender jaw line instead of delicious chubby cheeks
I've seen /co/ have debates over whether or not Wolverine is a Mary Sue, and nobody gets butthurt over it, but when we dare ask the same thing about Rey everyone loses their mind and starts crying muh soggy knee!
I guess. I mean women and men aren't the same. Feminists who try to claim that are just stupid cunts. They can be equal but never the same. For example men need to intake more calories then women. This is why cafeterias give men more food. This is not inequality. It's just nature
It doesn't, you're just parroting the false rhetoric aimed at people who criticize Rey as a shitty character.
No one cries misandry when people point out how shitty Anakin is as a character.
I wonder why.
It really doesn't have that many. It's one of the more egalitarian fanbases out there. It only has tons of misogynists by the new weirdly popular definition of misogyny as "anything any woman with a Twitter account feels remotely ambivalent about".
If you're asking why Rey has come under criticism, it's because she's a one-person adventuring team all on her own, while Luke and Leia were merely parts of their respective teams. When the group gets into trouble, she is always the one to save everybody, and when she gets into trouble, she always saves herself, without exception. The Death Star escape handed the "save the party" baton around to everyone in turn, making Luke, Han, and Leia equally crucial to the escape and giving Chewie and the droids valuable support roles too, but Rey could easily go through the entire movie on her own. She makes Han look mediocre and Finn look completely useless.
This would be enough of a writing problem on its own if it wasn't for the fact that she also does it by breaking the setting's own established rules. Luke needed four years of self-training before he even tried it. Rey nails it almost immediately, having never consciously drawn on the Force before, and the way she responds to Kylo Ren when he says she needs a teacher, it sounds like she doesn't know she's drawing on the Force to do this either, in which case she shouldn't be able to do the mind trick at all.
Rey is written as if she is an Earth girl who has seen all six Star Wars movies and has suddenly discovered the Star Wars galaxy is real and she's actually adopted because she's actually Luke's own daughter. She knows all about every movie character of importance and is able to do all their same tricks with ease. Every established movie character loves her as soon as they meet her and Kylo Ren is that asshole Kyle from school written into the story so she can beat him up.
>has so many fans that are misogynists?
Those aren't Star Wars fans, those are /pol/tards mad that something popular now has a female lead, whether they actually liked the thing or not.
