Specifically the idea that the movie is a) man-hating in general and b) emasculates Fury in particular.
So. A thread. /1
Then there're the complaints about Fury. /3
This is what we call "character growth". /5
But folks want to complain that the Kree scan him and say he's "no threat" and he *gasp shock choke* WASHED DISHES. /6
Because (unsurprisingly) there're a LOT of parallels there. /7
Turns out, Charlie seems to have some bad-ass skills she never knew about.
Then shit, as they say, hits the fan. /10
Like I said: deliberate parallels. Including the one between Hennessy and Fury. /11
But the trouble Charlie represents is WAY the fuck above his paygrade. /12
Now he's at ground zero for a space war. /13
NOT letting her take point would be INSANE. /14
Throwing his dick on the table would be opposite of helping. /15
But he doesn't just survive. He levels the fuck up. /16
All because he's *already* such a bad-ass that he survived the Skrulls, Kree AND a fleurkin. /17
Script-wise, it's dramatic irony based on what we know about his future. /18
The scratch came afterwards.
Ba dum tish. /19
That's not emasculation, that's ascending to Bad-Ass Normal. /20
Saying "he's emasculated" because he washed some dishes just betrays an utter lack of understanding. /22
