FLOP! New Feminist ‘Ghostbusters’ Toys Already on Clearance Before Movie Opens

The question about the feminist remake of Ghostbusters now seems to be not whether the movie will fail, but how bad its failure will be:

Toys for the new movie are already on clearance shelves in stores across the country.
While Sony and many media outlets would have you believe that the early criticism of the new movie is coming from a small minority of mouth-breathing woman haters, in reality the majority of the fandom is extremely put off by the reboot. . . .
To give the toys the benefit of the doubt, part of the poor sales could be in part due to young boys not wanting to play with female action figures and girls just not playing with action figures much at all. But whatever the reason for the clearance, it certainly is strange that toys for a yet-to-be released film are already getting shooed off the shelves.

Is it “sexism” to admit that boys and girls are different? Are we now so intimidated by political correctness that people are afraid to say that sexual role-reversals usually produce unhappiness and failure? Is it misogyny to say that feminist “gender neutral” ideology is simply wrong?

If the new Ghostbusters proves to be “a disaster of biblical proportions,” what should we expect Hillary Clinton’s presidency to be? How long before feminism ruins America and we end up on the clearance rack?

    When you’re still buying them for her when she’s 18 is when you might have a problem. Unless, maybe, she’s asking for some NIB vintage ones as an investment.

    Huh. Better than I thought it’d be then.

  • DeadMessenger

    Not anymore. China bought it.

  • DeadMessenger

    Then you’re a sexist, patriarchal rapist for not buying these, you Islamophobic racist.

  • Robert What?

    Damn! You beat me to it.

    There is a theory that special fx and writing talent both compete for the same dollars. Supposedly this happened before when Technicolor?? I guess came to TV, then there was not enough cash to rent good writers so the TV shows got prettier but more stupid. YMMV.

    Girls do prefer dolls over action figures, but another factor is girls like pretty toys, and those action figures are unattractive women.

    Hollywood went from being an artistic business to just being a business. When you try to maximize profit by green-lighting “sure things”, you will go stale very quickly. The other problem is that even the so-called “art films” are so full of left-wing messaging that they become intolerable. I’ll give you an example: not long ago, Hollywood came out with a film version of F Scott Fitgerald’s 1922 story The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I had read this story and enjoyed it. When I went to see the film, the whimsical story had come a platform for race. It utterly destroyed the story and I walked out.

    So your choices with Hollywood are schlock or Leftism. This is why I haven’t been in a theater in years.

  • Joe Joe

    Yes! There’s a certain moralism about the Left that makes them unbearable.

    The only real way to keep these femtards at bay is to simply not give in to them and not give a damn about being called sexist.

  • DisneyVillain

    Holy crap and I thought I was the only one who moved on to older movies.

  • DisneyVillain

    Yeah SJWs are such killjoys, even the Westboro is more likeable.

  • Jeanette Victoria ?????????

    Well I was born in 51 some of these films I saw in the theaters

  • DisneyVillain

    I was born in 86, but I still consider the 30s and 40s the best years Hollywood had to offer.
