Stay salty, dudes!
A bunch of butthurt men (and some women!) are upset about a women’s only screening of Wonder Woman scheduled at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas.
We think it’s a great idea! Why shouldn’t there be a chance for women to celebrate sisterhood in a movie about Amazon warriors? It’s not like men are being blocked from the GAJILLION other screenings!
But as soon as the special event was announced on the theater’s
Alamo Creative Manager Morgan Hendrix never expected the backlash to an idea she considered “fun” and “empowering” for women. She said:
“We asked ourselves, ‘How do we create a land of Amazonian women? Well – we just hold a women’s only screening!’ After all, she lives on a women’s only island and comes from a land of women. This makes perfect sense.”
The funny thing is, this all started out as a SINGLE screening on Tuesday, June 6 at 7pm, days after the movie comes out on June 2. So not only are there plenty of other screenings available to both men and women beforehand, there are a ton available that day!
So this obviously isn’t about being excluded, it’s about hating the idea of women having something for themselves. To that, we say SUCK IT!
Rock on, Alamo!
P.S. — NO to whoever suggested the clown screening of It. HELL no. That just sounds horrifying.
