Recently, I got word that Actress Rose McGowan has raised a big stink about FOX’s  Billboards promoting the highly anticipated reboot, X-Men Apocalypse. In the ad, there’s an ominous but terrifying picture of the titular subtitled character, Apocalypse choking the Shit out of Mystique played by Jennifer Lawrence.

XMen Apocalypse Mystique billboard

While many thought nothing of it, McGowan along with a few other other protesters mostly from social media, found it very offensive yo the extent of the ad encouraging violence against Women. Thus resulting in strong-arming FOX’s marketing division to remove the billboard ads.
On top of that, they had offered a sincere apology to Miss McGowan and Women in general.

“Imagine if it were a black man being strangled by a white man, or a gay male being strangled by a hetero? The outcry would be enormous. So let’s right this wrong. 20th Century Fox, since you can’t manage to put any women directors on your slate for the next two years, how about you at least replace your ad?”

This is weird coming from FOX who also owns FOX News that mostly consist of bullies and trolls. Yet claim to be “Fair and Balanced”.?
To some, this may be a victory for feminism, but underneath it all, its just two Comicbook characters fighting it out and said poster depicts Apocalypse as evil and menacing, which by all intents and purposes, his portrayal is well defined because he is evil and menacing.

Feminist or Opportunist?

Obviously Rose, the pseudo social justice warrior picked an easy target which is FOX media and if she really wishes to improve the status of Women for the better, why dont she fund shelters or programs for battered and abused Women? Or finance Women’s self defense and rape survivor programs? Why don’t she go after that Rapist Pig Brock Peters to the extent that he would never harm another woman again? *Crickets chirping* I thought so. She can’t compare her cause to Blacks who have endured far more hardship than Women throughout history because at the end of the day, McGowan is still considered “privileged”. Ergo, I take offense of her using Blacks being “strangled by a white man”. Her “going there” was a desperate attempt at getting her point across if not a Strawman er, “Strawoman’s” argument.

Unless I’m proven wrong, her crusade is just another example of unjustified town crying if not Sour grapes because she was never considered for any Superhero film which is ranking billions, that practically every actor wants a slice of that Marvel/DC pie!
In Layman’s terms, she’s full of shit just like Jada Pinkett-Smith who bitched and moaned about “Oscars being so White” although it may be true to an extent since last year’s nominees lacked diversification, her ulterior motive stemmed from hubby “Bill Willy Style” not receiving a nom for the docudrama-Concussion. I have seen the film personally and truth be told, it was as if Will has phoned in his performance. While Dicaprio’s acting in the Relevant  was nothing short of  excellent.

If the Smiths are concerned about Black being snubbed by Hollywood, why not help to create a Black Hollywood, run by writers, directors and producers of color? They have the money and the means but instead, those fucking fakes are living lavishly at the end of the day.

They're rich, Bitch!

They’re rich, Bitch!

Say what you will about Tyler Perry and I often have, but at least his company has hired a copious amount of Blacks actors, writers and so forth. Will and Jada, put your money where your big mouth is!

And the needless bitching doesn’t end there, as once again Videogames are used as a means for being the political scapegoat. In the hugely successful first person shooter Overwatch, feminists have complained about the image of a female character-Tracer who is found to be objectified due to her posing in what appears to be a tight fitting outfit. So now Women in Videogames cannot exude their sexuality?? Game Manufacturer Blizzard removed Tracer’s “Assets”soon afterward

TracerOverTheShoulder

The senseless attack on the media is another example of Political Correctness gone too far off the deep end. Its so bad that it spills into the workforce where complimenting a Female coworker sans sexual innuendo may get you written up or even terminated as it can be mistaken as a form of Sexual Harassment.?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for Female empowerment- I support equal pay, mutual respect and higher positions within the workforce and political positions. I want my Goddaughter to have as much rights and privileges as her male counterparts when she grows up. That’s one of the reasons why I did vote for Hilary Clinton during the primaries. Although I’m not a big fan of hers, she’s a far better alternative when compared to the pompous dickbag that is Donald Trump.

Women have served and still do within the armed forces and have more than done their part when serving their country but as with real combat, you can expect Female protagonists to be injured or even killed in fictional scenarios that occur in comic based films. Are Movies and other forms of literature that display Women being exposed to acts of violence are to be removed or even censored these days? There goes Female empowerment films such as Coffy, Foxy Brown, Kill Bill and Bitch Slap. LOL

I think that these so called “radicals: need to focus on more crucial issues instead of frivolously attacking Pop Culture mediums.

Rose should keep her opinions out of the spotlight especially since she’s not the patriarch of true feminism just another attention whore. That’s right, I went there!

    Bro. I am in Berlin for the weekend but could not wait to react on the article. First McGowan phot is such a feminist photo, LMMFAO.

    That attention whore photo is an attention whore photo. Don’t like the woman in the first place, and I severely dislike persons with selective protests and especially from pampered celebrities.

    Excellent article, bro.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Great article, Stalks. The recent spate of politically correct media protests over every little, inconsequential thing, full as they are of false outrage and hypocrisy, is getting out of control.

    And this so-called “feminist” should not be throwing stones: isn’t she the one who lured Robert Rodriguez away from his wife and five kids in the hope that her sexual attentions would lead to her being cast in several movies he had in development at the time (such as Red Sonja and Barbarella remakes) – and then promptly ditched him when such roles didn’t come her way? She’s an opportunistic, self-serving scumbag in the first degree. Now that she’s washed up, she’s seeking further attention – and ridiculous protests like this are the only way she can get it.

    I took a dump on Mystique’s chest. Where’s my Nobel prize?

  • KilliK

    well, regarding Tracer’s “sexualized” pose, the joke is on them. Blizzard had the last laugh in the end by trolling them. the new pose is similar to a classic pinup girl:

    Is it any wonder the social landscape of 2016 is a complete clusterfuck?

    Basic logic and common sense has been polluted with a bag stuffed with innumerable degrees of cluelessness.

    It’s to the point where some people literally don’t know where to take a shit anymore.

    Someone should sit Ms. McGowan down and explain to her that in super-hero land the good guy being put “on the ropes” by the bad guy is as common a storytelling element as pumpkin pie at thanks-fucking-giving dinner. The role of this good guy has been, for quite some time, played by a male.

    With this recent noise emitting from her gaping maw, Rose not only adds to the ever growing clusterfuck of confusion but simultaneously shits all over the respect and standing garnered by this female heroine over the years that has put her front and center as the main protagonist in this blockbuster tale. ( The universe knows the last thing I want to do is defend a Singer production..so double fuck you Rose for that!).

    Mystique isn’t just a “woman” she’s a (in this case) a super-hero. And part of being a super-hero is getting your ass kicked once in a awhile. You should be fucking proud, not bitching that it’s an equal opportunity ass kicking.

  • Bop

    It is in the mail right as we speak.

  • Bop

    False outrage. Didn’t know it was called that. It is a perfect description. I am really disgusted by those cowards in Hollywood. As long as it brings money on the table they won’t protest against middle east countries. And I am sure various actors and actresses earn pocket money by being invited by a piece of shit sheik who wants to impress his equally piece of shit friends.

  • Bop

    Fuck you, Rose McGowan for having Toruk defend a Bryan Singer production.

  • Dee-abolik

    There was a time when socio-critical dissection of pop-culture was new and important- it’s still the culture we consume every day after all, it would be wrong to say it has no effect on us. But that was a time when icons like Umberto Eco did that, but now that concept trickled down to that certain twitter/tumblr crowd and everybody thinks he/she can do it, or rather has to do it, despite obvious missing qualifications.

  • southafricanguy

    But it does appear to be the US that gone so completely and utterly PC insane. Thank fuck South Africa has not become so bad.

  • Toruk_Makto

    I should sue her ass for mental aguish.

  • Toruk_Makto

    It’s absolutely ridiculous. Though the bulk of it seems to be relegated to public figures and the media which these days are hand in hand.

    Thankfully, I don’t allow pc-nonsense to pass my door in my personal life.
    If common sense and basic human decency aren’t enough to govern your conversation I’ll send your idiotic ass packing. Whether that’s feet first or head first is a choice I leave to them.

    Word.

  • Stalk?

    LMMFAO Bro you’re hurting my insides!! XD

  • Stalk?

    Thanks, Turd and I had no idea that Rose was a Homewrecker yet, coming off high and mighty. I could easily cuall the Bitch out and start a twitter war, but I don’t wish for her to gain more followers via “sympathy” after the thrashing i’ll give her. (0:’

    Also, like you said and i have mentioned one time, that a true feminist would oppose the attrocities against women commited within the barbaric middle east.

  • Stalk?

  • Stalk?

    Thanks, Brother.
    Hope you had a great time in Berlin..
    it’s just silly how FOX backed down over a frivolous complaint. The y need to surrender all Marvel IPs back to the company that created them.

  • L.H.Puttgrass

    Did Rose McG actually shave her head or is that the result of some computer shenanigans? You can almost never tell these days. Technology!

    Yeah, the world is a little more than over-cooked these days. Perhaps we should stop trying to prepare this silly recipe and just have a simple satisfying sammich? It ain’t so complicated, it’s just lunch. Everyone has an agenda…

  • Frimmel

    My issue with all of the PC-ness invading the media I once enjoyed is that no character who isn’t a straight white male feels organic anymore. They all feel “cast” to make sure they hit all the marks on the diversity checklist. They all feel written to make the most flattering and uplifting portrayal with no blemishes.

    Somewhere on the net someone put forth the idea that all the videogame protagonists are straight white males around thirty because from a story perspective you’re free to write whatever story you like without having some sort of outrage ginned up against you.

    #gamergate

  • Toruk_Makto

    I know…when’s the last time we’ve seen a movie like:
    “Jumpin’ Jack Flash (1986)”?

    No heavy-handed agendas. No all-men-are-scum themes.
    Just a good old-fashioned thriller that happened to star a black female. Imagine that.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    I’m all for Marvel retrieving the X-Men rights, but they, too, would’ve unquestionably backed down in the face of this silly protest. Not a single media entity or public figure is brave enough to take a stand against this sort of thing – unless we’re talking about lunatics like Trump, who’re just as extreme on the opposite side of the political correctness debate.

    Can we get some moderation and reason on this issue? Anyone? Anyone at all?

  • Stalk?

    Just the idea of that opportunist Rose McGowan forcing FOX to remove the ad is insulting to feminism the world over.

  • Bop

    Berlin is good as always. Fox often shows they are not as smart as their namesake.

  • Jack Randomm

    Well, played!

  • Tarmac492.1

    excellent article Stalks!! PC will be the death of the world as we know it, IMO. Hollywood are as spineless and as powerful as Washington and they all need to be kicked in their collective cunts. This seems like a shot again at relevance by Rosie Mac. Yeah, like we forget how she flaunted her shit for years now she is some missionary doing Gods work? Fuck off cunt!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    lol!!! Spits coffee!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    I approve of the well reasoned rebuke against PC(pernicious cuntiness) in this. Nice!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    Love this performance. First time I didnt hate Hawke as well.

  • Stalk?

    Whenever I google Rose McGowan, a few clips of her having a threesome pops up and this shit is associated with Porn Hub. I didnt bother to investigate but yes, she’s out there showing her “Hey nannu, nanny” and such.
    What a Phony Bitch!

  • Stalk?

    Hopefully, SA has improved for the better post Aparthied which was an unjust practice.

  • Stalk?

    Training Day is a classic to me and although Denzel shouldv’e won for Malcolm X, I feel his oscar win as the Morally Bankrupt
    Detective Alonzo Harris was well deserved. This proved that Denz has even more of a great acting range.

    I can’t help but laugh my ass off when he said to Hawke’s character after all the shit he put him through; “Congratulations, you passed the test”! XD XD XD

  • Stalk?

    Best new shooter BTW.

  • Stalk?

  • southafricanguy

    Well….that was a very long time ago now. In a nutshell it has improved overall and is ultimately better for everyone. The biggest issue is the ANC government that is corrupt and utterly incompetent. Like all liberation movements it turns around and becomes the thing it was against…..textbook.

  • Stalk?

    “Like all liberation movements it turns around and becomes the thing it was against…..textbook. “
    In Layman’s terms, The moore things change, the more they stay the same.
    As SD Plissken once said.
    It sucks to find out that the oppressed are now the oppressors. And what’s worse, are the old skool bigots that boast “Ek het jou mos gesê”. /:
    Hopefully, things will change for the better.

  • southafricanguy

    It will once the ANC government is gone. They have been unable to win elections in the Western Cape ( where I am from) and they are on the Verge of losing two other provinces to the racially mixed liberal progressive party the DA. Where the DA is running things….there is huge improvement. Especially in Cape Town which has seen a lot of investment and refurbishment of its city center and services.

  • Stalk?

    We here in the states have our own share of political problems but things will go from bad to worse should Trump get elected. We’ll offically have a Clown in the Whitehouse and thus America will become even more of a joke to other nations.

  • Bop

    LMAO.

  • southafricanguy

    Exactly….Disney would have bowed down and said sorry even faster.

  • southafricanguy

    I disagree…I dont want xmen given back to Marcel. Disney will NEVER….NEVER make an R rated Deadpool or Wolverine movie.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Really good stuff Stalks!

  • southafricanguy

    I totally disagree with that. Disney would have backed down and apologized even faster. Disney is far more concerned about having a squeaky clean family image. Also, I for one do not want Xmen to go back to the MCU. Disney will simply NEVER have made either an R rated Deadpool movie nor an R rated Wolverine movie. And will so many films on their slate….we would get an xmen movie….about every four or five years? As a huge X-men fan I am quite happy getting regular X-men films (that are equal to the varying quality of the MCU films) and getting R rated films of the characters that should be.

    ON a side note….I also don’t see how the hell mutants would fit into the world that the MCU has created on film. logically….why would people have a problem with mutants, and hate and fear them in a racist sense (a pretty big part of what X-men is all about) when no one seems to have any problem with Captain America, Spiderman, Scarlet witch etc…..based on them being enhanced humans?

  • southafricanguy

    oh sure….Trump will be a fucking disaster for both America and the rest of the world. You can probably expect record levels of anti americanism not seen since Bush
