Yeah, he's no problem with boy power and the proliferation of like flics. He finds it "amazing" that women now have purchasing power and that business people are providing products that would interest them. Lotr, what're going to do when you get to Alpha Centauri and find it dominated by spiders?
It's not the size of the dog that matters in a fight it's the size of the fight in the dog. History & REAL life observations support the idea that a small guy can kick butt. I can suspend my disbelief that any of the folks you listed above could put a whooping on a bigger guy because of the real life examples of men like Roberto Duran who was all of 5'7".

BTW, if you knew anything about the basic myths of the human race you would understand that what you call "boy power" flicks have been with us since the very first moving pictures were made. And before that they dominated our literature & oral history's. And the reason they've been with us since the beginning is the simple fact that the "boy power" adventure is the classic story telling myth. Just ask Joseph Campbell.

Heck you can go back a lot further in history if you want to understand the genetic basis of the "boy power" mythology. The fact is "boy power" stories simply reflect the 50,000 years in which Cro-Magnon men led the exploratory hunting party's that distinguished early human hunter/gatherer cultures. Even before the advent of modern humans their immediate ancestors likely extend the male hunter aspect of hunter/gatherer human society back another several hundred thousand years.

A lot of natural selection takes place over these time spans. There is a reason we are what we are today and no matter how much progressives want to wipe out the reality of sex difference they'll keep running into the outcome of evolutionary natural selection. Their only recourse is in the realm of "make believe" where little women can beat up bigger men.

Pretty telling that the guys who embrace "woman power" are probably also the guys that can probably be whipped by a girl. Ain't no woman on the planet whooping my arse. Some of these guys buy into the woman superhero because IRL most women are their physical equal.

I have never complained about female leading roles in literature or the movies. I love those kind of stories & movies. One of my favorite TV series right now is the PBS Masterpiece theater showing of Victoria which follows the rise of Queen Victoria from teenager to one of the most famous monarch's in British history. Game of Thrones has numerous "leading" women moving the story line along. Ditto a lot of science fiction literature going back 50 years.

What I'm complaining about is the rather recent and IMO weird depiction of "tough" women who can beat the hell out of bigger "tough" men.

And yes I'll take women channeling Bruce Lee in a movie any day over having to sit through another Comic book Super Hero movie. These movies are beyond boring and IMO a waste of great special effects.

You still having trouble understanding chemicals are all in our food already and genetic modification can't be any worse? Or are you too high?

Lol in the nature scientific journal, which is what you want to be published in if you are into biology or chemistry, there was a spoof that showed a list of chemical free foods. Kinda funny for nerds.

Back to the point of GMOs there is really only benefit to them.

Here is the manuscript for the study

A comprehensive overview of chemical-free consumer products

Please read Possessed it may open your mind it may not. It is a bit of a read but a good read that explains it well. If you want to take the time to educate yourself on it I'd suggest this article.

Most of these guys are metrosexuals. They almost see themselves as little btches.

I.... really don't feel an overwhelming need to understand "boy power" mythology. We can be comforted that you will hold that torch. I did get a good chuckle out of your post though.

It's okay. If being upstaged by a "girl," puts you on your willies, that's okay. There's many like you but we're just worried to tell you; these movies, man or woman, they're fantasy. It's okay if the "girls" kick-butt. Fantasy. Couldn't happen in real life.

You don't have to believe it's real. Those ones in the Olympics? CGI. ssshhhhhhhh. Don't tell.

I'd imagine then that most of the male's playing action figure couldn't either but I think you cheat. How's anyone going to whip your arse if you're never off it?

Oh for crying out loud quit channeling a rabid Social Justice Warrior.

As for the Olympics I'm curious as to whether a women has ever won the wrestling, boxing or Judo competition in the men's division? Seems to me they should just eliminate the male & female divisions and where appropriate go by weight to create competitive categories. Co-ed Olympics, works for me.

This whole thing makes me wonder how much these movies contribute to the increase in domestic violence v women. You've got an entire generation that grew up w/these types of movies with the "strong female" protagonist that can beat up men 2-3x her size. In reality, 99.9999% of women would get seriously hurt being hit in the face by a regular man.

You know, female on male domestic violence is an issue that people don't want to talk about. We teach boys to NEVER hit a girl no matter what... and there are absolutely girls that take advantage of that.

I'd say females playing the lead role as fictional comic book characters has contributed dramatically to domestic violence. No question.
