Feminists Chase ‘Avengers’ Director Off Twitter, Because … Gender Theory?

Posted on | May 4, 2015 | 113 Comments

Let me explain something up front: Hollywood blockbusters are not made by conforming to people’s pet political theories. The target audience is 12-year-olds who want to see a lot of explosions and chase scenes and stuff like that. Yet the bottom-line calculations of box-office profit mean nothing to feminists:

Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon is officially off the grid, having quit Twitter today (May 4).
The filmmaker signed off from the social media service with two final messages to his 1.15 million followers. . . .
Whedon has been criticized by some Avengers fans and critics for using Scarlett Johansson’s international spy Black Widow in a typical ‘damsel in distress’ role in a few key scenes late in Age of Ultron.

OMG, a female character getting rescued by a male hero? Oh, we can’t have that kind of stuff in movies in 2015! We must critique the social construction of the gender binary within the heterosexual matrix!

No more studio executives and producers and directors — no, this capitalist structure of movie production must be replaced by a system that guarantees social justice! The era of white cis male heteropatriarchal movie-making is over! Henceforth, every script will be created by a committee of Women’s Studies majors under the supervision of Judith Butler, Sally Kohn and Anita Sarkeesian, and all characters must be either lesbian, genderqueer or oppressed minorities from the Third World, preferably disabled or, at least, neuroatypical.

Your next super-hero blockbuster will be about an undocumented Guatemalan paraplegic bisexual with a harelip and chronic depression.

And the 12-year-olds are going to like it, or else.

    I’m now picturing Rachel Maddow as an anthropomorphic lemming with Mel Gibson’s makeup from Braveheart, exhorting her fellows to charge over the cliff. “Mind the gap” is an English social construct!

    My favorite foreign phrase is “Jangan berdiri dekat pintu” which is on the doors of every subway car in Singapore. It’s Malaysian for “Stand clear of doors,” but I like to tell people it means “Beware of the dangers in being too close to opportunity.”

    Disgusting to see how cowardly most of these clowns lecturing us turn out to be, isn’t it?

    At this point I’m swearing not to come to their defense. I will save my ammo until after the jihadis saw their heads off.

    Won’t work, Progs are the only ones who can hear the dog whistle.

    Not to be confused with Blow, the black lesbian onanistic witch, who always has at least one scene where she performs a spell with her coven through mutual masturbation.

    A.k.a. “the popular one that gets all the crossovers.”

    I will stand with anyone who stands for the Truth and refuses to back down. RSM, Pamela Geller, Sad Puppies, GamerGate, Thunderf00t, Vox Day — no way I can list them all, but it would still be shorter than listing all the ones that are already slaves in their hearts.

    Oh wow, you have to see this.

    In one breath he says that his real reason for quitting Twitter was, “I just thought, Wait a minute, if I’m going to start writing again, I have to go to the quiet place.” In another he admits, “Believe me, I have been attacked by militant feminists since I got on Twitter. That’s something I’m used to. Every breed of feminism is attacking every other breed, and every subsection of liberalism is always busy attacking another subsection of liberalism…”

    Even while denying that SJWs drove him off, he confirms everything that we said about their behavior: “If you don’t live up to the litmus test of feminism in this one instance, then you’re a misogynist.”

    This is an extra special dog whistle that operates only at low frequencies so that only conservatives can hear it. Liberal ear drums are simply too light weight to be able to hear this one.

    Not surprising. Leftists think they are entitled to a world as the wish it to be. That would also mean that it occurs without requiring any work from them.
