One doesn't have to. Because the little snots can. It's just a single showing at a tiny time period.

This is not only false, it is rather bizarre.

Oh man, I didn't know this was so widespread that every theater in the area was only allowing women into every showtime of Wonder Woman. I see the problem now.

This screening is happening a week after the release and its not like the theater is prohibiting men from seeing the movie for the entire duration that its going to be in theaters.

Man, you have some weird issues with the female demo. I know you hate the female GB, I do too, but your hate hurts your ego.

Tell me the name of the 4th grade girl who hurt you. I will throw poop on her face, just for you. Male power!

That's exactly why I avoided having children, so I don't have to explain to my son why he can't go to the same public restroom as his sister, or why he can't play on the same football team, or why he can't play the same role in ballet or theatre productions, or why he can't join Curves.

Change female to male. Disallowing women to view it would be sexist. The term is not unidirectional.

This is just a bunch of lame dudes complaining about something. Probably the same kind who hated on Fury Road.

This removes the entire context out of the situation and society as a whole.That action adventure flicks, and primarily superhero flicks have been marketed almost exclusively to men for years. This is not to say women have went and enjoyed them. Of course they have, this place is a really good example of that.

But now presented with the first truly major film in that mold, and this is being celebrated by women. That is not a problem nor is it sexist. If anything, this is a step away from the sexist element of the story.

This is like saying why do people roll their eyes about White Men Marches, when compared to Women Marches and Minority Based Marches. The context is rather obvious imo.

I did love people freaking out about the feminist story of Fury Road, and thus this somehow ruined the film if they acknowledged it.

None of that matters because it's still sexist. This is not a march for freedom, this is not a march for equality. This is a movie that is saying roughly 50% of the audience is unwelcome.

Reframing it like this is some kind of important event is justifying a reversal of what has happened in the past where women were excluded. Trying to deny this is sexist negates the entire definition.

It really is that simple. But this is not about that, this is about putting on a show (literally) to say how progressive you are and completely missing the irony of "we're about equality, just not to men."

But as I said the first time, it is not worth all the arguing that is going on about it. Though clearly some people enjoy debating that.

Lame dudes are funny. The more they complain, the more women-only screenings that will pop up and the more money the movie will make.

The only losers here are the lame dudes.

Justifiably so.

Hilarious.

And because I'm bored, without your pops you would never have been conceived and born either. Does no one remember the definition of equality anymore?

Come on man. The movie theatre isn't excluding men. There are other screenings, on the same day, in different theatres (and the same one) that are showing the movie for everyone. This isn't sexist. This isn't about denying men the right to see a movie. It's just about bringing women out to see a comic book movie where a woman is in the lead role.

Stop thinking so much about this and let it go.

It's literally one theater showing one (now two)screening on one day. That is it.

I'm not actually thinking about it that much. Pointing out the hypocrisy of "this isn't sexist" is something to kill the time though.

Also waiting for the inevitable claim I am some how a MRA because pointing out this is sexist somehow equates to that.

This is the Trump Era, BN, false equivalencies are now facts. A movie having a women-only night one or two days over the entire run of a major motion picture is the same as widespread pay inequity or sexual harassment.
