We love all things Chris Pratt here at LwC (see Chris Pratt Celebrates Easter in the Most Chris Pratt Way Possible and Chris Pratt: ‘I Only Eat What I Kill.’ Vegans Freak…). So yes, we saw the preview for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and it looks siiiiiiick. You know who else saw it? Feminists. And you know who didn’t think it was sick? You guessed it – feminists. They’ve engaged outrage overdrive.
Here’s the offending trailer…
There you have it. Regular folks watch this and see a normal trailer for a movie franchise beloved by millions. But leftist social justice warriors? They see SEXISM!
Take a look for yourself. The four male characters all have clear personality traits and exchange funny banter—including Groot, a baby tree who can only say three words. Meanwhile, Gamora gets no dialogue at all, and her most significant role is to be the long-suffering object of Star-Lord’s affections.
Basically, Gamora’s job is to be The Girl. The trailer introduces a new female character (Mantis, played by Pom Klementieff), but she’s just there to highlight Star-Lord’s feelings for Gamora in a scene where two male characters get to be funny while Gamora remains silent.
This is just a snippet of an entire article written about a two minute trailer. The source of the outrage, by the way, is that Gamora didn’t get 5 seconds to say a quirky one-liner that nobody will remember…
Marvel had two minutes to focus on two things: 1) special effects and 2) Chris Pratt… Heartthrob and the main character of the film. The studio simply made the trailer the way they pleased. It didn’t get the stamp of approval from the left, clearly. Seeing how feminists are mad Marvel gave a talking raccoon too many lines. Monsters.
This isn’t the first time – or the last time – leftists have attacked movies for no good reason (see Feminist Liberals Attack New ‘Wonder Woman’… For Being Jewish?). Though to be fair, you wouldn’t be able to enjoy movies either if you had a stick permanently lodged into your posterior.
I’m sure an apology from James Gunn and a few stupid hashtags are brewing, but for the love of God… it’s a preview. Simmer down, feminist cryholes. Movie companies aren’t waiting with baited breath to get your vaginal stamp of approval. Go back to the turd hearse you crawled out of.
