I have to say I look forward to seeing the movie Dunkirk.
Part of that is my own love of movies set during the Second World War. Except Valkyrie. Boy, that movie sucked.
But feminists are really angry about the film because it’s just so, well, male.

So, let me get this straight.
Making a movie about the events at Dunkirk is just an “excuse” to celebrate maleness.
So, just wondering. What was the “excuse” for making a television show out of “A Handmaid’s Tale?”
Apparently these griping feminist bean-counters are the ones who get to decide just when we’ve met our quota of male-centered movies.
Who died and put these harrumphing shrews in charge of what movies can and cannot be made?
Don’t ask me.
Didn’t we just get a movie about a race of female warriors who save the world?
Of course the difference between Wonder Woman and Dunkirk is one of them is fantasy and one actually happened.
Is it men’s fault that the one that actually happened was about men?
And, really? What exactly is wrong with celebrating maleness?
Are we not all the same race of beings?
And haven’t men contributed a hell of a lot over the centuries?
Thanks to men we have – to name just a few things — the internal combustion engine, the internet, the jet engine, and medical advances that have saved countless lives.
Not to mention, men defeated the Nazis.
In fact, Bill Whittle has one hell of a good Firewall about the contributions men have made to our society.
It’s an oldie, but a goodie.
And it was made by a man:
That’s not to say women haven’t contributed anything.
How about we make a movie about the life of Stephanie Kwolek?
She was the Dupont scientist who invented Kevlar.
And thanks to her, the lives of countless soldiers and law enforcement officers have been spared.
Her contribution to society cannot be denied.
But ask yourself this. When was the first time you heard of Stephanie Kwolek?
Was it just now?
Has any cranky feminist ever mentioned her once?
Sure, they celebrate a butcher like Margaret Sanger.
But the inventor of Kevlar? She isn’t even a blip on their radar.
Here’s the truth.
It is possible to celebrate maleness and still respect and honor the contributions females have made.
They’re hardly mutually exclusive.
But for gender bean-counters like this writer at Marie Claire, recognizing and appreciating all that men have done is somehow an affront to women.
These modern-day feminists want to live in a fantasy world where men have done nothing to earn their place in our history and culture.
But it is just that – a fantasy.
I for one am grateful for men and what they have accomplished over the millennia of human existence.
And this obsession to scrub our history of anything male is not only short-sighted, it’s extremely ignorant.
But then again, doesn’t that pretty much describe everything modern-day feminists believe?
