Hopefully this will serve as a reminder to anyone who might be getting weak kneed over the prospect of boycotting Episode IX, or think that the dismissal of Kiri Hart somehow indicates a change in direction.
Fans may be familiar with the Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures animated series now playing on the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel. It’s advertised as a way to get kids introduced to the original trilogy. What’s bizarre about this is that anyone who wants to introduce kids to the original trilogy, can just play…the original trilogy.
But putting that aside, what’s becoming clear is that Lucasfilm activists are using this as an opportunity to rewrite the original trilogy from the viewpoint of modern feminist misandry.
It depicts a General Leia bravely pointing to where she wants her soldiers to run off to with a feminist scowl on her face.
First, Leia was never on the battlefield. She stayed in Echo base and served in the central command. Second, if she had gone onto the battlefield with no hat and a bare face, she wouldn’t last very long without frostbite. Hoth was a dangerous place. Third, the Rebel soldiers were not advancing in marches like Lobsterbacks from the American Revolution. They fought in WWI style trenches.
Next is the more troublesome image, of Luke being bitch slapped by Leia.
Leia can’t just be heroic and provide cover for Luke while he withdraws his grappling hook from his belt, as they did in the original trilogy. No, here Luke serves to highlight Leia’s feminist dominance by getting his rope all tangled up. It infuriates Leia to the point that she bitch slaps him in the face so hard, that he gets knocked into the wall behind her.
Imagine the response from SJWs if a cartoon portrayed Luke bitch slapping Leia in this manner. The cacophony would be deafening.
It appears that we don’t have to imagine. The conversation has already taken place, and as usual, hypocrisy is the foundation of all SJW thought.
All the way to misandry. How evolved.
Amusingly, the explanation that SJWs gave for this image was that it was all a ruse. But they wouldn’t buy that explanation for the adaptation of Splinter of the Mind’s Eye, even when someone showed it to them.
