>>106630393>If anything I dislike her because the movie misunderstands a lot about feminism in my eyes.
I disagree because I believe the point was never to show her as not having weaknesses or emotional depth, but as someone who's been living a lie and how she needs to break from these literal and metaphorical shackles that she, as a powerful person and as a woman in a society she faces. This actually highlights all the things that in my opinion reflect the actual feminist subtext of the movie:https://twitter.com/War_Kittens/status/1109601174410444800
But ultimately what I believe impedes this sort of reading for many is that they cannot accept that she's powerful from the start unlike other heroes who have had a certain growth and have reached their current status after getting upgraded or whatever (like Thor), and while I completely understand what they're getting at, unfortunately I cannot agree because... Well, she's pretty powerful, we literally just had a storytime showing those things: >>106616037>>106623513
And from now on, when characters like the Silver Surfer or Nova post-Annihilation or Quasar (hopefully) show up, it's gonna be difficult to reconcile the idea that they have to "struggle" in order to get where they are, when their weaknesses and burdens come from within. And that's unavoidable, really, cosmic-tier characters are fucking powerful and hard to match. But the feminism in the movie I consider it actually well done, because it explores a different facet of it (realizing your potential despite the gaslighting), whereas other movies often fall for the "prove your worth/prove you're as strong as a man but don't let your femininity behind" cliche that has become a template for the "strong female character".
