Reply Subj: I can't believe only women are allowed to see Wonder Woman and no men are allowed to see it anywhere in any theater ever.

It's one movie chain that has a showing for a particular group of people. It's called Ladies Night and they always advertise it with romantic films and such (like Dirty Dancing Night was last month). They have that all the time in movie theaters. The only reason people are focusing on it because men, who have a lot of media already produced for them and a lot of movie theaters showing the movie for them, are hurt because it is an action movie. I mean, where were the guys outrage at the Dirty Dancing Ladies Night?

Seriously, there are plenty of other things to be upset about. But not being able to see one movie at one particular movie theater at one particular time (note that other times are perfectly available) is ridiculous and stupid.

You both are being ridiculous and stupid.

Why? Because it's like men wanting to go a Mommy and Me special viewings where they only want Women and children to attend. It would be like Women wanting to go to the Daddy and Me special viewings of movies or people without children going to the Families viewings of movies.

You have the right to your opinion. But out of ALL the stupid and horrific things out there to actually be worried about when it comes to sexism or racism or what have you, this is the least important. It's not like they're rounding up men who are sneaking into watching Wonder Woman and beating them. One movie theater decided to do a gimmicky thing with a movie that actually makes sense for the gimmick (i.e. Wonder Woman is a female empowerment super hero about Amazons living on an island of all women, so why not have a showing that has just that).

Now again, if people are beating you for buying a Wonder Woman ticket, then let's talk. If someone denies you a ticket because of your race or your gender or your sexuality for any other showing, then let's talk. Something is totally wrong with that movie theater you're going to. But what it comes down to is this: Does having a showing for "women only" affect you buying a ticket to watch the movie at the time you want? No. Move on and buy another ticket in another theater. It's that simple. It's like the least sexist thing to worry about.

Don't be jerks. Some things aren't for meant for you. Deal with that.

- l.k.

What these women are doing is illegal, it's discrimination against men based on gender and with the men who work there who suddenly cannot work certain hours because of the women only screenings. It's injust, not fair and clearly discrimination. Period.


Chew on that thought for a while.

And one last thing because I need to make myself abundantly clear: I'm simply expressing an opinion. Not once have I resorted to childish insults like you have. Not once have I called you stupid, petty and what not, but you have. And you have the gall and audacity to tell ME I'm being petty and stupid?! I'm only expressing an opinion, that's all. Not ONCE have I resorted to name calling or even calling you a jerk when you, on the other hand, have done so. So, if I were you, I'd look in the freakin' mirror because you sir have NO RIGHT to sit there and judge me based on my expressed opinion. I have EVERY right to it without being insulted for it. You need to seriously take a chill pill, cool off and step away from this before you do anymore damage if you can't have a disagreement with someone without resorting to childish insults. You want to disagree with me? Fine, then do it without the insults.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
