Star Wars and the Feminist Agenda

I always saw Star Wars as being for everyone, both male and female. From Odyssey:
Kathleen Kennedy thinks that women can’t relate to the Star Wars male characters like Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Han Solo. In their place, Kathleen has inserted Leia and Rey in the roles of lead characters to make Star Wars more female friendly. Let me just say this; Star Wars was created by a man. George Lucas wrote and created this magnificent tale. The first fans to flock to it were MALE. I mean sure there probably was a few female fans, but it was mostly directed at the male audience.

The feminist agenda is starting to take over the Star Wars saga and ruin a fictionary tale that has been treasured by fans all over the globe, male and female. Let’s look at what has taken place since The Force Awakens has come out. We meet Rey in The Force Awakens. Supposedly this mysterious girl that we know nothing about can hear the Force.

She’s never had any kind of Jedi training, but she automatically knows how to wield a lightsaber and can use a blaster. Oh, and let’s not forget that she can use the Jedi mind trick, which is supposed to take years of training to learn. Rey is made out to be the strongest character in this movie.
The male characters are made out to be stupid and unconfident in their abilities. Let’s take Finn for example, he’s a Storm Trooper for the First Order. He’s unsure of his place and decides to rebel against the First Order. In doing so he meets Poe, a pilot for the Rebellion. And what about Kylo Ren? He’s to be the big bad villain of the movie and it turns out that he’s insecure of his abilities and gets defeated in the end by, you guessed it, Rey the newbie to the Jedi ways. (Read more.)

Rey is no wonder woman. Wonder woman had strong females without bashing the men.

Also Wonder Woman was believable, even with a fantasy perpsective.
