← Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch is a Steaming Pile of Sexist Crap

As soon as I saw the trailer for Sucker Punch I correctly guessed that it would be another adolescent boy fantasy masquerading as a pseudo-female-empowerment film. What I was surprised about however was how the mainstream media and the blog-o-sphere called Zach Snyder out on his disaster of a movie.

  1. Sucker Punch is the latest movie from Zach Snyder.
  2. I'm not even gonna bore you with what the movie's about because there really is no cohesive plot.
  3. And in case there was any question there is nothing even remotely empowering to women about this film.
  4. Infantalizing women with pigtails and mini skirts and cutsey little names like "Sweet Pea" and
  5. "Baby Doll"... That's not empowerment, even if they are armed to the teeth.
  6. Snyder is nothing but a parasite trying to leech off the gains of feminism to satisfy his own
  7. personal, pornographic, adolescent boy fantasy, which just serves as another example
  8. of the male driven backlash against women.
  9. Who are you kidding? We're not fooled by this.
  10. But this movie couldn't have been made without a major studio backing it, yes I'm looking at you Warner Brothers.
  11. I can just picture the Warner executives in their boardroom meeting being like,
  12. "Ya this is awesome, we can have it both ways, we can fulfill the desires of the 15 year old boy market
  13. by having semi naked chicks and action, and then we can make the girls sword wielding and ass-kicking
  14. and women will love it!"
  15. I got news for you Warner Brothers, we women, we're not that stupid!
  16. Incidentally, Warner Brothers is also the company who is attempting to white-wash Akira by
  17. casting white actors in the role of Asian characters.
  18. Hollywood, you need to get over the simplistic notion that "sexy chicks doing dude stuff" is somehow empowering.
  19. Taking scantily-clad, sexploitation style women and squeezing them into the mold of the
  20. male action hero does not make a strong female character.
  21. That is simply the men who run Hollywood trying to redefine what a strong female character is
  22. and repackage it in a way that is pleasing for male adolescent viewers.
  23. ...oh yeah and also make a shit ton of money.
  24. Usually in my videos I try to be fairly nuanced about my criticisms of pop culture
  25. but this movie, doesn't have any nuance.
  26. Sucker Punch is nothing more than a steaming pile of maggot-filled, festering, misogynist crap
  27. trying to masquerade as female empowerment.
  28. Ya, that, uh, that pretty much sums it up.
