Quote:I agree. The Skrulls have never been portrayed as "enlightened" or liberal about anything. They are militaristic. They slaughter and enslave other races. They oppress their mutants.
Quote:The idea of some enlightened race that cares nothing for gender norms is nice and all but don't give that to the Skrulls. The Skrulls are a hateful bunch of trolls who want to kill everyone that isn't them. They have a few good apples but most are rotten.
You guys went for socio-political aspects that I wasn't even considering. I just figured that if I could at any moment be a male rabbit, a female squirrel, a table, a bottle of wine, a male salmon, a female dragonfly, a hat, a shoe, a male Kree, a female Badoon, or a laser rifle - I wouldn't place any importance on gender.
Nevertheless, I'll take your word for it that Skrulls are male-dominated and therefore they care about gender in a political context.
