Woke is a Joke

If you know anything about anything you would know that answering a question with a question can be a very effective technique.  
‘How much money are they offering you?’

’Why do you ask?’

It doesn’t seem like you have ever been in a salary negotiation.

Lightyear,

Again, is the prospect of two girls kissing in a film really something you consider to be overly woke? What decade do you live in?

 Wonder Woman,

Wonder Woman was an enormous success that is spawning more sequels and spinoffs.

So you don't know what you're talking about, and you just blindly copied someone else's work because it supported your disgust over over seeing gay people represented on film.

I don't think he's motivated by prejudice, instead just by owning the libs. Not having actual beliefs, instead depending on others to provide the ones to be against, is kind of weird to me.

Agreed.  If supporting LGBT people "owned the libs" he'd change his avatar to the Pride flag.

Could be, but after two decades in a very masculine role as an Army Ranger he took on the very untraditional role of house dad. It seems plausible to me that identity issues may be driving his current persona.

Due to the magic of the killfile, I can only guess at what you're talking about.

One of the problems of objecting to the excesses of one side is that it is often assumed that this implies support of the other.

Extremists of any stripe tend to take on the trappings of religious zealots - in some cases they ARE religious zealots - and their TRUE BELIEF is the problem more than the side of the aisle to which they gravitate.

Pointing out that using hormone blockers and performing surgery on adolescents who are, as is typical of adolescents, unsure of quite what they are constitutes child abuse is is justifiably criminal is construed as being against LGBTQRST+/-..., which is not necessarily the case.

If an adult wants to surgically modify their body to be a Barbie Doll, a Space Alien or whatever, I can't see why they shouldn't be allowed to do so.  Doing this to a child is not okay (and I have to wonder who the hell came up with circumcision in the first place, as well).

When people say "Democrats are like this" or "Republicans are like that," I'm tempted to note that there may be the odd exception to either claim.

The definition of what constitutes a "moderate" differs depending on who you ask, but I'm not impressed by much of any extremists.

Well you've done nothing on here but demonstrate the complete respect you have for the LGBTQRST+/- community, so nobody would misconstrue your statements as being against them.

Isn't the point of hormone blockers precisely to offer a reversible alternative to surgery (or other irreversible interventions) until an adolescent has had more time to make a decision?

Well there’s a total non sequitur. Going by Windsor’s logic of ‘what you always complain about is what you really are’….

You guy's are all too deep for me, I just want to know if he's ever fantasized having sex with a man.

Wonder Woman had a budget of $120 to $150 million and a box office of $822.8 million. Net profit is estimated at approx. $250 million and it was in the top 10 for 2017 most valuable blockbusters.

“Wonder Woman 1984 reportedly cost $200 million to make, and sadly, it doesn’t look anywhere close to making that back or breaking even.”

I guess you never noticed covid. It was the most popular streaming film of the year, and WB are happy enough with its performance that they’re making both a sequel and a spin-off as we speak.

And by the way, what exactly is ‘overly woke’ about it? Female lead characters? Is that the thing that’s a step too far for you?

Ask Bill, according to him, having a gay actor or a positive portrayal of women or minorities constitutes ‘woke’

Ask Bill, 

You brought up the film, you called it woke, I’m asking you. What is it you’re scared of saying?

No, that’s according to you. You called Lightyear woke and that’s because it has two females kissing. You called Wonder Woman 1984 woke, and why is that except for the fact that it has a female lead character?

According to you, showing a single instance of two women kissing makes it woke.

They have to show solidarity with the governments of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and China et al. You know, the kind of government they really want.
