You have probably heard that, and maybe believe that the new Mad Max Fury road is a feminist movie. Hell Charlize Theron stated it in an interview.
Well she lied.
Before I continue I will stand by my words as it is not a movie to go watch. It is a piece of shit plain and simple. I suffered it so you don’t have to.
Now back to the feminist lies. While Charlies Theron’s character Furiosa may try and be the feminist hero that all ignorant feminist want to portray. She is far from it. Furiosa plays the damsel in distress trope by requiring Max to save her on multiple occasion.
The wives that are saved by her require two men to see them to safety with one sacrificing himself for the women.
In fact I think there are only two lines in the movie that can be considered remotely feminist. One being ,”One shot one man,” or some bullshit like that.
And while Theron’s character gets a lot of screen time. And I mean tons of screen time, she is practically forced onto the screen to make her seem important. She just isn’t. Max pops out to save the day time and time again. And when the shit really hits the fan it is max or the warrior boy who do the saving.
Finally when all the saving is done and all the bad guys are dead or trapped. Theron like any good feminist takes the credit for what the men did. And the men who saved the day either died themselves or fade into the crowd to let the little princess have her day in the sun.
To put it on the table. The movie would still have been the same with or without Theron. The movie is not a feminist movie. It is just another car movie, it isn’t even a Mad Max movie, at least the first two had decent storylines. Thunderdome may have been on the lines as Fury Road. Hell Thunderdome with Tina Turner was more feminist than this piece of crap. But when Thunderdome came out Feminism was not trending.
Now it seems that Feminist can just lie to the public and we all just blink and say, “Aww them women have been oppressed so ignore the lie. Let them have their say and don’t question. It might hurt their feelings and that would be wrong.”
Fuck that shit. True Feminism, the one that wants equal rights is what we should stand behind. Not this modern interpretation which is just lies and misdirection. The sad thing is, is that the entitlement that these feminist have is bred in the USA, in comfort because they did not, have not suffered as true feminist have, and definitely are not oppressed as women in other countries.
I stand and support women who want equal rights and will not lie to get more rights than men. Equality is equal all the way around.
