Some idiots recut The Last Jedi to exclude and lessen female roles


What a toxic world we live in. Some moronic Star Wars fanbros recut The Last Jedi to exclude and weaken every female role in the film…

By now, it should come as no surprise that Star Wars: The Last Jedi has certainly become quite the divisive film among Star Wars fans. On one side you have a subset of fans who think Disney is ruining their childhood with its new canon and films, while on the other hand, you have fans who can appreciate these new Star Wars movies for what they are…new Star Wars movies.

Then, there is another group — let’s call it a subhuman group of “fans” — who hate everything new Disney is producing with Star Wars, and they’re hating the new content because they feel their masculinity has been threatened by having new female leads who are ushering in a new era of the Star Wars cinematic universe…because how dare a woman swing a lightsaber or pilot a starship.

In fact, these subhuman fanbros have gone so far as to illegally record The Last Jedi in theaters, then poorly recut the film to exclude most female roles, and those who aren’t completely excluded, have been weakened or dumbed down. You know, so these guys can feel empowered.

According to The Pedestrian, Men’s Rights Activists (yes, apparently that’s a thing) have uploaded their 46-minute version of The Last Jedi — titled The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit — to Pirate Bay with the following edits. Pardon the spelling, apparently being a fanbro doesn’t come with the ability to grasp basic grammar.

"Cut out most shots showing female fighters/pilots and female officers commanding people around/having ideas.““NO HALDO (sic)! She simply doesn’t exist. Her whole subplot doesn’t exist. The Kamikaze is carried out by Poe. ( = Poe dies.)““Leia never scolds, questions nor demotes Poe. He is a respected and very skilled high-ranking member of the resistance.““When there’s a scene where a woman is cut in making some important statement that can be substituted by another statement by a guy, then she gets cut out. Works pretty well actually.““Wookie eats the Porg, or at least isn’t interrupted in trying to do so.““No green milk.”"

The fact that these idiots actually put time into making The Last Jedi into a sausage-fest should make all of us collectively point at them and laugh as hard as humanly possible, which is exactly what Director Rian Johnson and some of the film’s cast did.

Mark Hamill got in on the action, in his own unique way.

As did John Boyega.

There is absolutely no reason for a “man” to feel so threatened that he completely excises all female influences from The Last Jedi. Admiral Holdo’s hyperspace jump into the Supremacy was a jaw-dropping and visually stunning moment that had never happened in the Star Wars cinematic universe.

Rey is, as she should be, growing in her Force powers, and Rose Tico is exactly what the Rebellion/Resistance stands for: A nobody rising to the occasion to become a hero. And of course, Leia was the commanding presence she needed to be when it mattered.

So, continue with your fanbro edits to the film. It won’t make one bit of difference in the long run. Disney will continue to take Star Wars in a bold new direction, and an all-new generation of Star Wars fans will be all the better for it.
