Did women ruin Star Wars, or just feminists?

Opinion columnist Marc Geppert at Dangerous.com wrote an article entitled, “Meet The Women Who Ruined Star Wars.”  The headline suggests that the blame for the deterioration of the Star Wars franchise rests squarely on the shoulders of women.  But did women ruin Star Wars, or just feminists?  This is an important distinction to make.

Remember, in 2018 feminism and the female gender are no longer inextricably linked.  Today, anyone can identify as anything.  Indeed, men now routinely and proudly proclaim themselves to be feminists.  So women and feminism are two different things in the modern era.  Criticism of one, does not necessarily translate into de facto criticism of the other.  Caitlin Busch writing at inverse.com confirms this within the context of the Star Wars universe:

“Side note: feminism isn’t just about people who identify as women. The film’s main male characters — Finn, Poe Dameron, Kylo Ren, and Luke Skywalker — were all allowed their own room to grow and change and feel their feelings, which is a subject that more male-focused feminism often looks at. In our world, men are often told time and time again that they’re not allowed to feel emotion; the guys in The Last Jedi were not only allowed to feel emotion but encouraged to, and that’s lovely.”

I argue that it is feminism which is to blame for the deterioration of the Star Wars franchise, not women.  For contrary to SJWs who pat themselves on the back for blazing a trail, the fact of the matter is that we’re on a very well worn beaten path with regards to women in Star Wars.  Princess Leia was a lead character in the very first 1977 film.  And then of course, we later had Queen Amidala in the Prequel Trilogy.  Now, some argue that Star Wars never had a primary female lead before.  Fair enough.  But this argument demonstrates their fundamental misunderstanding of the Star Wars films, which never had a primary lead in general.  As the “Big Three” explain to us, Star Wars was an ensemble piece:

Nevertheless, when George Lucas sold Star Wars to Disney, a great disturbance of SJWs crying for “equal representation” cluttered the galaxy.  50 percent of the world’s population is women they argued, therefore 50 percent of the characters in Star Wars should be women according to their logic.  But that’s not what we’re getting.  The Force it seems, is now exclusively female.

Diversity!

So much for gender neutrality and equality.  Take for instance Lucasfilm’s animated program Forces of Destiny.  It showcases exclusively female Star Wars characters.  But wait?  Isn’t 50 percent of the world’s population men?  Where is the equality?  The equal representation?

Some are more equal than others.

But while we’re all supposed to be celebrating the women of Star Wars, we’re also not supposed to be paying any attention to the women of Star Wars at the same time.  This is a brave new gender neutral era after all.  The Official Star Wars Facebook page, once lectured a fan that Captain Phasma’s armor didn’t have to look feminine just because the character was female.  Which begged the question as to why the character had to be female at all then, never mind the practicalities of designing and forging armor that fits the female physiology as opposed to male.  Just forget it you sexist and/or misogynist you, pay no attention to the vagina behind the armor.  Sure, 95 pound Rey might look silly deflecting blows from adversaries that outweigh her by 200 pounds to the uninitiated. But men and women are perfectly equal in everything, so there.

It’s this kind of unthinking silliness that militant feminist ideology facilitates, and it litters pop culture.  Rather than create thoughtful female characters based on legendary figures such as Joan of Arc, Molly Pitcher, Bessie Coleman, Amelia Earhart, among many others, just as Luke Skywalker was based on an amalgam of Arthurian heroes and figures from Greek Mythology, we instead get a shallow interpretation of what the worthless Bechdel Test tells us we must have in order to be politically acceptable in the modern age.  It’s what leads to moronic diatribes such as this:

As Wayne Isaac of American Greatness writes:

“And because her creative foundation is ideological rather than mythological, she is inauthentic and unappealing.”

The assumption that Kathleen Kennedy talks about comes from the likely fact that there are far fewer women interested in Star Wars.  Indeed, for decades Star Wars was considered girl kryptonite for the most part.  But now, militant feminism is forcing the Star Wars franchise to cater to a small screeching SJW minority under the delusion that everything must be equal for everyone all of the time everywhere.  This may likely be why today’s Star Wars toys just aren’t selling in reality.  They’re marketing gender neutral feminism to young boys who just aren’t interested in it. Why would a 12 year old boy want to escape to a Star Wars film, where the male hero Poe spends the entire movie getting scolded by bossy women, when he can just sit at home and listen to his own mother do the same thing?

Some are more gender neutral than others.

Kathleen Kennedy has been described by a veteran movie producer as such:

“There’s one gatekeeper when it comes to Star Wars and it’s Kathleen Kennedy. If you rub Kathleen Kennedy the wrong way — in any way — you’re out. You’re done. A lot of these young, new directors want to come in and say, ‘I want to do this. I want to do that.’”

“A lot of these guys — Lord and Miller, Colin Trevorrow — got very rich, very fast and believed a lot of their own hype. And they don’t want to play by the rules. They want to do sh*t differently. And Kathleen Kennedy isn’t going to f*ck around with that.”

Kathleen Kennedy was once quoted as saying:

“Fifty percent of our executive team are women. Six out of eight of the people in my Story Group are women. I think it’s making a huge difference in the kind of stories we’re trying to tell.”

I’d be willing to bet a fine patriarchal steak dinner, that the two presumably males in Kathleen Kennedy’s story group are feminists, and that certain directors were rejected for not playing by their feminist rules.  There’s plenty of room for genital diversity at Lucasfilm.  But no room for intellectual diversity.  Kathleen Kennedy isn’t going to f*ck around with that.  And that means feminism is to blame, not women.

There was always a small percentage of the Star Wars fanbase that consisted of women, who “crossed over” and liked it the way it was before militant feminism assimilated it, and of course they were always welcome.  But now, militant feminism may be pushing even those female fans away:

  17. When women are seen ruining anything the blame should always go to men. Women are not inherently capable of obtaining power. It must be given to them by those in power – men. And we all know what women do in positions of authority. Behind every woman making bad decisions is a man who should never have given her the authority to do so.
