May 22, 2015 – Mad Max: Fury Road opened to strong box office and incredible reviews, but there’s one group that’s madder than Max himself: meninists. That’s right, meninists. The Mens Rights Activists (MRAs) claim that the film’s storyline – where Charlize Theron’s Furiosa and Tom Hardy’s Mad Max help a group of women called The Five Wives escape warlord King Immortan Joe – is an attempt to undermine masculinity.
Return of Kings vlogger Aaron Clarey declared that he’d been “tricked” into anticipating “what is guaranteed to be nothing more than feminist propaganda” that has “ruined and rewritten” the Mad Max franchise:
“This is the vehicle by which they are guaranteed to force a lecture on feminism down your throat. This is the Trojan Horse feminists and Hollywood leftists will use to (vainly) insist on the trope women are equal to men in all things, including physique, strength, and logic. And this is the subterfuge they will use to blur the lines between masculinity and femininity, further ruining women for men, and men for women. So do yourself and all men across the world a favor. Not only REFUSE to see the movie, but spread the word to as many men as possible.”
So is the meninist opinion of Mad Max…Funny or Offensive? Vote and Comment now!
