Feminists Outraged At Lack of Female... Minions?! Yes Really...
We at LwC are been too busy having a life, but apparently there is concern among the interwebs as to whether or not there are any female Minions. Not since the Smurfs have people been so concerned as to how cartoon characters reproduce. – btw, the answer can be found on Google, just be sure to have the 'safe search' on. –
Well, the guy who created Minions shed some light on the situation...
According to “Minions” creator Pierre Coffin, in fact, all the title characters in Universal’s prequel to two “Despicable Me” hits are male, voiced by male actors (including Coffin himself).
For the French animator, who co-directed the new film with Kyle Balda, the masculine-only nature of the Minions owes to their all-around cloddishness. “Seeing how dumb and stupid they often are, I just couldn’t imagine Minions being girls,” he told TheWrap.
Faux outrage over what could very well be a joke isn't our style, so let's give the guy the benefit of the doubt. Even though he's French. Most of those men are so wimpy that they ultimately develop self-loathing idiosyncrasies, along white-flag waving vaginas. Either way, you would think his response would be something liberals would celebrate.
"that minions not being female post is actually really really stupid because it just implies that minions creator guy is too close minded to make a fun/silly female character"
"Like, yes I don’t like minions as much as the next person, but… the idea that a minion can’t be a female because “lol they’re all too clumsy and dumb for any of them to be girls”…. isn’t it kinda dehumanizing? Girls can only ever be portrayed as badass/heroic/sexually appealing, and the film industry would rather exclude the gender altogether than make them clumsy silly and generally unnatractive? aaaand…. everyones celebrating this???????"
Being a leftist is exhausting. I'm wiped from second-hand exhaustion.
But this is what you get when you have an entire generation of people who've never had a real war to fight, never a tyrannical power to overcome, never a systemic oppression to subvert. So, what do the #SJW leftists do? They make up words, claim victim status and find outrage in things like Disney films. It's their only purpose left in life.
What a sad life it is.
