*Damn my post got html cut up i used arrows.
...

Kkenndey is saying the force is female!

Ben kenobi Ep4 (1977): " it's an Energy field created by ALL
living things...."

Kkennedy(2018): No Ben, now it is " ...by FEMALE living
things"

They will cut that scene from a new hope and edit in that
train spotter dude to say the new line with a crappy grey
wig.

well i wont be surprised if it happens......

What is she on about? ?? It is a force created by all living
things you sexist b****!!!!!

K Kennedy: " it is going to happen, we are going to hire a
woman to direct a star wars movie, i have no doubt"

whether the talent is of a higher standard or not .
diversity quote must be met.

why does she not say..

" if we find the perfect director for the job is a female.
then of course we will hire her, why should gender matter?"

is star wars about story, talent or even making money now?
Or is it simply about "forced" diversity.

Well, Marcia Lucas saved the original as editor, and was
recognised with an Academy Award for it. But don't let that
spoil the idea that women have until now been physically
barred from having anything to do with hopelessly
gender-skewered Star Wars.

Oh and now Lando's a fruit? Imagine back in the day as kids
when you used to play "Star Wars" with your pals. Who gets
to be Han, who's Luke? Who's Lando? Oh you are, because
you're a gay. That'll go down well with young black males
untroubled by notions of sexuality.

Erm what??

"...it's an energy field created by all living things"

to me that = Equality! gender has nothing to do with it.

i never said women were not worthy at all.

that is what you have going in your mind.

as quoted above in my words..

" if we find the perfect director for the job is a female.
then of course we will hire her, why should gender matter?"


'not' as Kennedy says " The force is female" in other words
not male. That is sexist.

what do you mean "Lando is a fruit? I have no idea what are
you talking about!

Fucking hell freqy, for someone apparently so "switched on"
you quickly find yourself out of your depth and start
floundering. I was responding more to the bit about this
Kennedy person saying there was going to be a female
director - doesn't matter who, but they would be female. My
point was that females have been central to making Star Wars
since Day 1, and that Marcia Lucas had a hugely significant
role in making the first one a success. But the popular
narrative is now that suddenly it's "time" for women to step
up and get involved, when the truth is they've always been
there. Just in a less hysterical, flag waving manner. I am
not saying anything about you at all, if anything I'm
broadly supporting your view.

And you don't know that Lando now is meant to be pansexual
now? I GUESS YOU DON'T READ THE WASHINGTO POST

I quote from the article cited above

"Lando says he would wipe the spunky droid’s memory if
she didn’t have such a wealth of knowledge, a statement
she attributes to his being in love with her.
"

There you have it; Spunky droid.

none of this really effects me, expect star wars and all
future media to be over politicised, when artificial
constraints are put on things they invariably turn out shit,
I couldn't care less if the next star wars film was filmed
entirely with a cast of south African bushmen unless it was
a good script and was filmed with a skilled director

"Star Wars: 'It's time for a female or non-white
director'"


... Star Wars has become so devalued that sure... let
fucking anyone have a shot at it. All they have to remember
is to have any of the familiar Star Wars things make a cameo
every 10 minutes, and then the rest is just a platform for
whatever fucking issue it is you want to push. Refugees,
people smuggling, trans people, a sly dig at Trump... Yay,
Star Wars, directed by an amputee. BECAUSE IT'S
TIME

I totally agree with signeduptolol. People seem so intent on
saving us by “restoring values and morals” (which is
fine) that they forget to actually think. They just want to
point fingers and feel good about themselves. Reacting used
to predomi be a right wing thing, but not anymore. Right and
left are slowly merging, and in so many ways. Soon choice
will be unecessary: why? Because because we will all think
the same, or go to jail. Everything sanitised. Thought
police to check if you’re pro abortion, instant fine:
infertility. No more laughing at difference, not only is it
wrong, it doesn’t exist anymore. We are all the same. No
longer will a movie director be casted for their talent,
quotas will be in place. Race, age, sex, height, width
etc... I guess everyone would have the same salary. A cross
between 1984 (but with a “well intentioned” leader, and
“happy” sheep), communism, and nazism. But with
great, humanistic scope.

"At the moment 75 percent of the people in visual effects
are men and that’s unacceptable," Brennan expressed. "Our
ratio at ILM is better than that, but it’s still not
enough.”

"We need some directors who aren't white dudes," Johnson
shared with the L.A. Times. "And [Lucasfilm president
Kathleen Kennedy] knows it, too. It just has to happen. I
mean, come on. It has to happen."

she could say:

The force is also female!

Female the force is also. with a picture of yodas wife.

or just not bother and act inclusive. as you have LGTBQ and
so on left out now too.

not "the force 'is' female"

"At the moment 75 percent of the people in visual effects
are men and that’s unacceptable,"

Considering more men sit in front of their computers
spending most of their life figuring out how to work out the
effects and innovating. women can also do this too. but
there are more men. far more. i would have been surprised
only 75% . but now i can see why.

Also don't be disingenuous with your quotes freqy

"It is going to happen. We are going to hire a woman who’s
going to direct a Star Wars movie. I have no doubt. On the
other hand, I want to make sure we put someone in that
position who’s set up for success. It’s not just a token
job to look out and try to find a woman that we could put
into a position of directing Star Wars ... If we do want to
bring a woman in to direct a Star Wars movie, we want to
make sure that it’s somebody who’s passionate and
really, really wants to do a Star Wars movie. We don’t
want to talk somebody into it."

eh??? again ... read slowly...

>if you got the best talent, you should get the job <

A person male or female should not be refused because the
percentage of one gender is too high.

It is not unacceptable that men are 75% of a department if
they are the best talent.

However, If they are getting a job just because they know
someone, that isn’t right. Or if they are getting it just
because they a have male sexual organs that isn’t right.
