There Appears To Be Some Very Insecure Men Out There Who Are Outraged That 'Wonder Woman' Is Having An All-Female Screening
NYPost- A gender-based “injustice” involving the new “Wonder Woman” flick has some DC Comics fans crying foul.
Fanboys are livid they weren’t invited to a women-only screening of the superhero movie at Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas.
Alamo Drafthouse announced its “No Guys Allowed” screening on Wednesday night, a week ahead of the highly anticipated film’s release. The theater added that everyone from venue staff to projectionists to culinary staff would be female — and outraged internet trolls immediately swarmed.
Mike Canales asked whether the company would host men-only screenings of “Man of Steel,” “The Terminator,” “Escape From New York,” or “Demolition Man.” Bradley Lucio claimed hypocrisy, asking: “Could you imagine the anger and outrage from the liberal staff of Alamo if Trump held an all male screening at the White House or even if another theatre did an all-male screening?!”
“Have you ever hosted a men’s only showing of any film?” wondered Bill Fairbrother on Facebook.
Sexist? SEXIST!?! Clearly this select group of socially awkward misfits has never been trivialized before, because you know what would really be sexist? If men were forced to watch a movie that starred a stinky, smelly girl and her super cootie powers as the lead. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for a good fictitious tale of heroism, but making the superhero a woman? I am glad this is an all-female screening, because - as someone whose gender provides them the brawn and bravery necessary to battle intergalactic beings - I simply would rather not have my ability to suspend disbelief shattered by a member of the fairer sex somehow saving the day.
I'll never claim that my movie viewership has standards but I'll be damned if it doesn't have double standards, so let's just say there's a reason that I have never wondered why a woman wasn't cast in a cape. I honestly can't believe there are men out there making themselves look stupid by fighting against the inherent injustices faced by nerdy white males, because I'm perfectly content only viewing screenings that feature ladies in the supporting roles in which they belong. While a bunch of needle-dicked dorks are out picketing the plight of having a penis, I think I'll just stay in and watch Mrs. Cleaver serve up a family dinner in the only costume I'm interested in seeing even the most wonderful of woman wear...an apron.
In all seriousness, you really have to be some kind of tone deaf asshole to make your delayed viewing of a sci-fi film into some societal issue that's plaguing the privileged. Never mind the hypocrisy necessary to claim hypocrisy, because if merely having to wait a day to see a 'Marvel' movie has you ready to die on the hill that men are being marginalized then you're too little of a bitch to board the ride through the glass ceiling to the cinematic empowerment of women.
P.S. I love me some Turtle, but this response is nothing short of brilliant....
The company’s social media team replied: “We’ve never done showings where you had to be a man to get in, but we *did* show the ‘Entourage’ movie a few years ago.”
