Carrie Fisher passed away recently (RIP). Media outlets around the world praised her as a role model for women and a feminist icon. In particular, they highlighted her groundbreaking role in the Star Wars movies.

Was she a role model for women? YES, YES and YES!!!

In a related story…

  • Chewbacca was a role model for hairy, inarticulate men
  • R2D2 was a role model for midgets with limited mobility
  • C3Po was a role model for yellow people around the world
  • Jabba the Hut was a role model for people battling obesity

You get the picture. Feminists – and many women for that matter – have an unhealthy relationship with entertainment. They believe that something is “true” because it occurs in Avatar. They will find their Mr. Big because Carrie Bradshaw did. They can beat up twenty men at one time, because Angelina Jolie did.  Etc., etc.

It’s an embarrassment and it places them on the level of children, unable to discern between fact and fiction.

They need make-believe worlds, because they’re such cosmic failures in this one.

  1. I agree with you about women, entertainment and the way they often fail at distinguishing fantasy and reality. It’s pretty sad and ridiculous to see.

    My only quibble is your implied assertion that we have a culture or society where men are exponentially more successful than women. That doesn’t seem to be the case.

    1. Thanks for the reply. 🙂

      My assertion is more directed to women who are unable to separate fact from fiction, as opposed to women in general. It seems that feminists are more susceptible to this fantasy thinking than other women.
