Question: Was The Alamo Drafthouse Right to Have a Women-Only Screening?

The new Wonder Woman movie is about to come out and a movie theater called the Alamo Drafthouse decided to schedule a special "women-only" screening of the film and a lot of men in Texas went crazy over the news. While the critics of the event do have some weight as it is a little ironic when it comes to gender equality, Wonder Woman is the one movie where this kind of screening is understandable. While the character Wonder Woman has had male love-interests in the comics and other media, she's an Amazon who's from an all-female island. They're just being a little true to the comics here, and honestly I'm a little ashamed on the behalf of my fellow men that this spun into the controversy it did. Also if you think about it, every comic book film with a female lead has been considered a failure on some level. I'm excited that we may finally have the film that breaks the mold. 

What do you think?

  4. Goes to show that it doesn't matter what you do, there will always be someone to complain about some kind of injustice being done.
