trashfeminist has been talking about mad max today and they’re much more on point in their posts than i’m going to be lmao go check them out
i get the hype around mad max, especially for women who are fans of the action movie genre. it’s a complete surprise to go into a movie like that and be confronted with a cast that’s mainly women, and no love story. and i get how important that feels for a lot of people!
but tumblr has this really bad habit of stamping something as 100% FEMINIST without really examining and acknowledging its flaws and that, to me, is entirely baffling.
a cast full of women is an unexpected surprise!
a cast full of mostly white, skinny women when you only expected one or two white skinny women, isn’t exactly revolutionary.
idk what i’m even really saying, except, why are we always so eager to accept and run with the very first thing we’re offered?
