Well, that sure as shit didn’t take long.
I just found out about this movie yesterday (well, I had known to some extent that the movie was coming and that Disney had plans to make spin-off Star Wars movies, but this did sort of come out of nowhere for me), and already … okay, well first, the trailer just in case you’ve been living under a rock:
Oh, the Britishness of it all. Is she going to break into the Death Star and find Lieutenant Sebastian and his superior officer arranging matches? IS SHE?
…aaaand we have a brewing bullshitstorm about gender in movies. Including, but not limited to, MRA neckbeard fucksnorts complaining about women stealing Star Wars.
Now, actually there doesn’t seem to be much backlash about this at all. All the response I’ve seen so far seems to be positive. My only complaint is that there seems to be a Samurai in it, but whatever. I’ll wait and see where they’re heading with that. All we have so far is this pre-emptive backlash against the noisy minority who will commence to yelling and crying pretty soon. Maybe unfair, but I think we all know the true festival of dummy-spits is coming.
 Here’s the original story that the Mary Sue is mocking, and while it does call the main character a Mary Sue, it also seems to be basically a joke – “I’m curious to see how many people think this is serious“, it says. Yes, the overall “article” (if you can call it an article, at a staggering one paragraph in length) was a bit snarky, but hardly explosive.
Oh well, I called it for Ghostbusters and I see no reason to change my tune now.
Fuck off, you insecure, woman-hating, knuckle-breathing, mouth-dragging, oxygen-hog cavemen. This shit looks like great fun.
