    Feminist whines about classic James Bond movies

    There's a thread on another site about a feminist's complaints about James Bond movies. I've addressed her comments about the Bond film that she claims is the #1 misogynistic one, Goldfinger.

    Her babble can be found at this archived link:
    https://archive.ph/sqNDI

    Of course, as you should expect from feminists, she totally misses the point. Here's my rebuttal to her nonsense.

    I've watched the supposedly most misogynistic Bond film, Goldfinger. Unfortunately for the feminist lunatic, Angie Barry, who penned her babbling article, it's possible for us to watch these films to see how asinine her claims are.

    Barry's first claim is that Bond "practically rapes" the character, Pussy Galore in a barn. Notice she has to use the word "practically" because no rape occurs. There is no sex in the scene, and she's left out the context, of course. The context is that the woman character is working for the bad guys, who have imprisoned Bond and threatened his life. She's also an expert martial artist, whose skills Bond must take seriously. So then they end up in a struggle against one another in the barn, as he attempts to free himself. If you were abducted, wouldn't you want to escape? And, of course, when the hero of a film is abducted and held prisoner, don't you expect him to fight back? Amid the struggle, she becomes attracted to him, and they end up making out. She falls for him. That's totally unrealistic, of course, but this occurs in a deliberately unrealistic film. There's no hatred toward women in the scene. Of course, "misogyny" means "hatred of women," and hence, absent of hatred, there can be no misogyny.

    Pussy Galore is also portrayed as an expert pilot who trains several other women to also be excellent pilots. Barry leaves that part out because that portrays women as highly capable. She also whines about the name "Pussy Galore." It's supposed to be an unrealistic and exaggerated film, hence the ridiculous name. Of course she's offended by the absurdity instead of seeing the humor in it.

    Much of the rest of her complaints are about women getting killed in the film. Of course, we don't want women to get killed in real life, so are these complaints reasonable? Not at all. This is a film, not real life, and in this film, the women are murdered by the villains. In other words, their murders are portrayed as bad. So if Barry had included the context, she would have said, "The film portrays it as bad to murder women." So what the hell is she whining about? Characters get killed all the time in movies, often by the villains. The whole point is that villains do bad things and must be stopped. Leave it to a brainless feminist to miss the point and think that if women characters get killed in a film it must mean the producers of the film think it's okay to kill women. In reality, they were saying the exact opposite. Does Barry even understand that when a character in a film gets killed, no human being actually dies?

    Now, on to another absurd complaint by Barry: "Hell, in the first five minutes, Bond smacks a woman's bum.... " Once again, she conveniently leaves out the context, which is that the slap on the butt was CONSENSUAL. Bond was vacationing with an attractive woman who wanted to be with him, and when he slaps her butt, she does not object, because she's already consented to his touching her sexually. Notice the pattern here. Barry can't make anything seem misogynistic without leaving out the context. The only thing that might remotely seem sexist is that Bond says the woman should run along and let the men talk. However, remember the context again. He was on vacation, but someone from his work showed up. She does not work for the British Secret Service as he does, so she should have no expectation of being part of the conversation with them. On a scale of 0 to 10 for sexism, I would give that remark about a 1, given the context. Barry acts like it's a 10, and of course, it's because she has totally ignored the context.

    Goldfinger is one of the best James Bond films. It's full of irony and hilarious one liners. It's a totally unrealistic film on purpose. Most of us would have a lot of fun watching this excellent film. It takes a bitter and angry feminist like Angie Barry to watch a film like this and so totally miss the point, ignoring every bit of context, so that she's all offended. One would hope that the film industry would ignore pathetic sad sacks like her.

    A woman's mind can't differentiate reality from fiction, empowering this mindset is mankind's greatest single blunder.

    Don't try to argue with them, just roll them over with the Archie Bunker steamroller of seamless truth! It's the same as covering them with a burqa and ignoring their incoherent ramblings derived from blending reality with fiction and a healthy heaping of emotions, all the while their mouths run like broken spigots!


    In the beginning, it only ate men, now it's coming for the women and children, and nothing can stop it.

    The Archie Bunker character was a satire of bigotry, but today's Woke Mind Police would be to stupid to understand that.

    There was ALOT of truth mixed in with that satire.

    They overinflated both Archie’s conservative views and the Meathead’s liberal views.

    They did it with a preconceived goal of trying to make the Meathead’s liberal views seem “better” and Archie seem like the idiot. My interpretation was the total opposite.

    I find it truly hilarious that Rob Reiner is the Meathead personified today. He never srperated from that character. He is a true “Meathead”.

    The lefty media created him as a liberal's stooge, and just like MGTOW, using reality and common sense, he stole the show! They didn't realize what they were creating, the same way they create outstanding adversaries today! It's a chemical reaction bound by mathematical law that always repeats itself! For every action there's an equal and opposite reaction, I'm just here to chew on popcorn and watch the show!

    We're the new Archie Bunkers, and we multiply faster than gremlins in a in a downpour! They don't like equal and opposite reactions, otherwise they wouldn't censor us so much and cringe at our existence!

    That's fine, but could you guys please start a separate thread about Archie Bunker? This thread is about the feminist misinterpretation of James Bond. I wrote about it in detail regarding a feminist's absurd review of Goldfinger.

    Because Pussy Galore is gay, and so are all her female pilot minions. That's the subtext of what's going on - never explicitly stated, of course. She's an alpha lesbian with a harem. I think the line is: "Save the charm, Mr Bond, I'm immune". Bond turns her straight b/c he's James Fucking Bond, but -agreed - it is a fantasy. Gay women are indeed pretty much gay.

    Of course, there's always the question that the activist is incapable of answering...How hard is it to not watch a movie that offends you?

    It's been many years since I've watched that movie but I can vaguely recall the implied sex scene in the barn. Yes it's highly unrealistic, which is why the James Bond movie franchise was never promoted as a documentary. However, if you're offended by it, just how difficult is it to not download or stream it? If you are honestly offended by a movie, how difficult is it to not plunk down some cash for an overpriced ticket and wedge yourself into a crowded theater?

    I have managed to "not see" every movie produced in the US for the last five years...trust me, it's not that hard.

    I read that that was in the book, yes. It wasn't so obvious in the film. And today, of course, we know that you can't convert a gay person to hetero by being super sexy, but this film is from 1964. Even so, you could interpret it as she was really bi, and then found herself attracted to him.

    It is bizarre that they get so upset over a film that's unrealistic on purpose. I could write a film about a 17-year-old high school kid who plays video games and isn't on any sports team, but when he opens the door, lots of women scream for him like Beatlemania. That would be unrealistic on purpose as a joke, but I'm sure the Woke Mind Police would throw a fit over it.
