Captain Marvel movie: *Carol gets told to smile, told to control her emotions, is told to prove herself*
Men: “I’m so sick of this feminist propaganda that Disney is shoving down our throats! Shit like that doesn’t happen, stop showing men in such a bad light!”
Me, a woman, who’s had every one of those things happen:
HONESTLY it’s been so clear, the difference in how men and women are responding to this movie.
all the women i’ve heard talk about it have loved it and been really excited.
and all the men (save for one) have been like “ehhhh” and taken issue with some aspect of the plot that is directly related to the main character being a girl (including the aforementioned moments).
