Shoot, did I miss the fireworks or has no one here gotten worked up? I want to know whether or not I should be proud of us.

However it has proved that over reactionary comments such as yours are quite fast to yell down even the slightest opposition to your opinion.

As I said above, the level of outrage coming from both sides is well above what it should be, given this is about a female hero and a screening or two excluding half the population on an otherwise meritless characteristic.

Actually modern techniques and technology mean we don't have to be present nor needed.

Scary thought bro but that's for another day.

But again without your ma , you'd never see the light of the hairy doc.

"All I did..." yeah yeah. Just like all JewishHobbit wants to do is comment, he has no agenda and doesn't care either way.

PS. There's no outrage from both sides. There's outrage from one side and people are responding to it appropriately - by mercilessly mocking the outraged.

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.
It most certainly matters. Unless of course you believe we live in a world without context. Which you apparently do.

What outrage on the side of the obviously not absurd? Laughing at people being stupid is not outrage.

You could maybe make the argument that a one-night female-only screening is kinda sexist. However it's way more sexist that superhero movies have been exclusively male for years, so I think we can let them have this one without any fuss?

Eh, only if it was like that across the board. The same theater chain will proceed with regular screenings that very same day.

I think this is a pretty neat idea. This isn't hurting anyone or anything. Just move on if you think this is a big deal because it's not that serious.

It amazes me how angry some men can get when a movie based around female characters and/or feminist ideas gets love for that. How insecure do you need to be for that to be an actual problem for you?

I believe it was from the Gamergate thread started by The End. And it sure was the end for him. Haha, I'm funny. He wasn't though. He was a tool.

I actually missed the Gamergate discussion, here when it happened. Or at least most of it. It sounds like I lucked out.

I remember the time on the Hype when there would be threads like this, or threads about the Vatican eating babies, and we all would just laugh and laugh... And die a little inside.

Wow....I did not realize that every single movie theater around the entire world is excluding men from every single showing of WONDER WOMAN. You are right....this is an outrage. The fact that they were able to convince every single theater through out the world to do this is scary as hell.
