Male critics are so uncomfortable about Kate McKinnon, a lesbian character NOT made for male leering.
It’s kind of amazing, and sad, to see this so widespread. I see it all over, men who saw the movie calling her “not funny” (though she was the character who got the most laughs in my packed theater last night) and “obnoxious” and that they “just didn’t like her for some reason.”
Online I see articles by women, posts by women, tweets by women, who adore her. Who are calling her their favorite part of the movie. Who are proposing marriage to her.
Mostly young, mostly queer, women who saw the movie … they love her.
Male critics are so uncomfortable about her existence.
