Also jurors – in particular female ones – do not want to face the fact that those who commit rape include a broad cross section of men, and rarely fit the stereotype of a masked madman leaping out of a bush.Yes, indeed: the lunatic fringe 91% are out of step with the mainstream. Hence the desire to switch from a 'jury of your peers' to a jury of, well, fellow fanatics, actually.
Call me suspicious, but I'm not sure I'd trust Julie Bindel with deciding whether or not men deserve to be jailed...
But it turns out though that it's not just the jury pool where the New Girl Order is having recruitment problems. In the world of pop culture, it turns out that they came, they saw.... they got their ass kicked, actually.
But you can't have a Stalingrad without a Kursk afterwards. The SJWs might have taken a beating at the box office but if they couldn't actually launch their own films - or even other people's films that were done way better years ago - they could surely punish any Wrongthink... couldn't they?
The newly released superhero (or supervillain, to be precise) movie Suicide Squad has already outgrossed the feminist-friendly remake of Ghostbusters in its first weekend, despite Ghostbusters now being released almost a month ago.Turns out the only people who got any payback were the investors.
And it gets even better:
Despite allegations of sexism, the film performed exceptionally well amongst women. As The Hollywood Reporter reveals: “The biggest surprise in terms of audience makeup was the strong turnout among females, who made up 46 percent of Friday’s audience, according to exit poling service CinemaScore. That’s unusual for a superhero film.”Who knew? Young girls would rather identify with sexy and funny characters doing cool stuff, than with a herd of Bitchapotamus with permanent PMT.
BTW, that's for a movie that has suffered one of the most absurd post-production butcherings in movie history, with the studio trying to edit what was filmed as a darker alternative to the Avengers into a Deadpool style comedy (see the change in the tone of the trailers here).
Failure to ram Ghostbusters down the public's throat showed that SJWs could no longer hector the public into leaving the house and paying £12 for a movie, but Suicide Squad is an even bigger defeat for them. It shows they can't even sell people on staying at home.
OTOH, there's always true feminist icon Emma Watson...
