The Coalition of the Self-Righteously Aggrieved is demanding that Captain America be a gay man, and James Bond be a woman. And, of course, Ghostbusters has been rebooted with an all-feminist “Grrl Power” cast. (And, apparently, it sucks.)
This is a recurring theme among the social justice left. Instead of creating their own organization for pale young boys, they insist on taking over the Boy Scouts. Instead of creating new woman heroes, or gay heroes, or hijra-genderqueer-two-spirit heroes… they want to take over something that was created by someone else.
Why is the Social Justice Warrior imagination so incredibly stunted that it cannot even imagine imagining its own new things? Why can it only imagine old things, given a new racial or sexual make-over?
Why are they altogether incapable of any kind of creative or productive thought whatsoever?
Oh that’s right: Because these are stupid, useless, trivially-minded people.
On a related note, is it too soon for the Socialist Juicebox Wankers to begin attacking the new Star Trek movie as racist? I mean, the villain is a black guy. And the hero is a white woman. A very, VERY white woman.
I mean, like, if she were any whiter, she could be an editor at the Huffington Post.
