Feminist hypocrisy, explained by real-life examples
Ever notice how feminists say that if you have a fucking video game about rescuing a damsel in distress, a romantic ending (or in this case, the actual lack of one) is somehow entitlement and misogyny?
The real bullshit here is that video games for the most part have men risking their lives to save some woman who doesn’t even know the protagonist from Adam. Winning a woman’s love is not worth that cost no matter how pretty she is. Women don’t exactly fantasize about rescuing some dude in distress that they don’t even know. What the hell is so messed up about men that they’d even consider such foolish nonsense to be entertainment?
Then there’s the fact that few if any nerds at all, feel like they will get the “hot chick” if they work hard. But hey, that means nothing to feminists because they just won’t listen to facts, they only care about their bullshit fear-mongering narrative.
So, going along with their insane narrative:
Well lookie here. Women’s literature, aka the romance novel genre. Adult. Female. Literature. ADULT. Let that sink in.
Notice something wrong here?
The romance book genre is absolutely dominated by stories of men saving women, usually women they don’t even know beforehand (sometimes they do), but what always happens? Romance.
Because women rarely if ever not fantasize about going on a long quest to rescue men that they don’t even know and are in serious distress like this. Which is romance stories based on such themes are, though certainly not nonexistent, very rarely popular.
Let me make this clear before I go on: no one should expect romance with someone after rescuing them from danger. But let me also make something else clear: expecting men to put their ass on the line to save people they don’t even fucking know, is the lowest level of douchebaggery ever.
Yet as you can clearly see, women expect men to rescue women. Men are expected in real life to not actually want anything after putting their lives on the line for someone. This is the most popular theme in romance: women are entitled to being saved by men. If he’s not saving her, then he’s not shit. This gets worse in real life: men are expected not to want anything in return.
And once again, for you frothing feminist zombies drooling in the intellectual cheap seats way the fuck up in the back, no one is entitled to romance with someone after saving them. Savvy? You come back accusing me of preaching entitlement here, you will burn.
In closing - it’s pointless to ask why feminists never call out the romance genre for all its damsel in distress nonsense, nor do they self-reflect and ask why this theme sells so damned well among female readers. Feminists have always wanted men to put their lives on the line for women. They just want men to do it quietly, then go away, like expendable tools. This is why they rail against battered men and male rape victims, and ignore the plight of homeless men.
Okay, not all feminists are like that. Fine, that is true. So why aren’t the ones who aren’t like this telling the ones who are to get some self-awareness and check their hypocrisy?
Team gets cornered by Lotor, at some point they get separated and Lance is with Allura wearing her suit + a helmet. Everyone see when Lotor finds their hiding spot and when they run in opposite directions. Lotor goes after Allura and when Lance tries to run to then, being the closest, gets a (non-fatal) shot. Allura is taken and everyone gets to Lance… 1of3
But that’s actually Allura in the blue paladin suit. She assumed Lotor would go after a paladin and made Lance change suits w/ her in the hopes she would be the one taken and Lance and cia could still form voltron and fight. She couldn’t know about Lotor being obsessed about her 2of3
In captivity Lotor is allowing the “princess” to keep her visor full black for now, being the graceful host he is, while Lance silently freaks out. Lotor thinks Allura is very though, by refusing to talk in his presence. (Lance is weighting the worth of dying for a “your princess is in another castle” joke) 3of3
Im pretty sure there is a fic of this
Okay, but then Imagine Lotor finds out, and is super pissed- but then he actually looks at Lance. Allura who? Suddenly he is all over Lance, because Lance is super pretty. Lance is disgusted at this, and trying to let himself be saved, but Lotor treats him really well and lets him know how many days have been there. After a month, he starts wondering if they’re ever coming. He honestly thinks that maybe Allura replaced him with Blue and they’ve forgotten all about him. It doesn’t help that Lotor is adding too those thoughts by you know, being Lotor.
Eventually they do come for Lance and they all wanna fight Lotor but Keith gets there first, sees Lance in a skimpy outfit because the boys skin is better than anything in this life, and fucking loses it. He ends up with a sword to Lotor’s throat, the only thing stopping him is Lance telling him to stop. So he takes Lotor captive, and he goes to talk to Lance.
Lance tells Keith about how he thought they weren’t coming, how he thought they probably replaced him. Cue big emotional scene.
