It's a movie. That you can watch in any movie theater. Even at later showings. It's the same movie.

The key here is while they might file a complaint, you've got to prove damages to the clients who were not able to watch the movie at that time. That's the key here. Are you hurt by this? Did you lose employment by this? Are damaged inflicted by this?


It's a movie. The "All Female Showings" of this movie aren't destroying yours or anyone else's ability to watch a readily available movie. It's a marketing thing. Does it affect well-being or health or creates undo economic or physical burdens on any male participant? No? Then move on.

This is akin to suing Jiffy Lube for having 20% off for Ladies on Wednesdays. You can sue for discrimination, but you also have to prove that Jiffy Lube is also the only place you can service your vehicle and that Wednesday is the only day you can service that vehicle and that additional 20% is an undo burden on your wallet.

Your opinion, while stated clearly, is faulty and needs perspective.

- l.k.

My perspective is fine since your missing the point. If I had men only screenings for men, guess what the women would do? They would be up and arms complaining about women equality. They fought for the same rights as men for decades and when they pull this crap, saying, "You can't see this movie because your man, you can't work here because your a man" is just discrimination against gender. Stupid or not, it's still discrimination to deny a man, or a woman, to see a movie based on gender. Doesn't matter if jobs are lost or not. Discrimination is discrimination, regardless of the reason.

Stupid or not, it's still against the law.

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?
