Mandalorian was woke, it was just woke in a good unobtrusive understated way, not hamfisted.

Mandalorian wasn't woke.

Too many actors hired who trigger people to claim that.

Carano and Burr wouldn't get a gig if it was.

No perpetuating anti male sentiment, just a 5 second scene where a collection of characters come together. People get angry, I still don't get it.
It was because it was so cringe worthy lame seems to have been a common view.

Thought people saw it as an eye roll moment, not an angry one.

When Carano first appeared I seem to remember plenty of woke complaints.
I don't remember anyone saying that about Carano.

People already knew she was legit tough and thought she was perfectly cast as a bad arse.

Same goes for casting Gal Gadot as WW. Tall, athletic and military trained. Perfectly cast.


They bring a real physical presence to the screen, unlike that Marvel girl power cringefest.

Looks like a few have been conveniently deleted but this one is still up.

So one.

Gina Carano had already been a kick arse character in Deadpool. There was no issue with seeing her as being some woke token character that I ever saw.

Well I mean I did say a number seem to have been deleted.

Here's a screen grab of one. That's two more than you claimed there were.

I see that and I think the Mandalorain did get woke. But not in the storyline, more when all all those woke tosspots that are fake SW fans started trying to cancel Carano.

You are creating a culture war in your own head that is embarrassing to watch.
I'm not creating anything. It exists.

We all were around for that utter fraud ******* Anita Sarkeesian's moment in the sun.

And that turd was given air time and money by MSM like they were some expert and not a fraud of a "fan".

There's plenty of clones of that idiot still running around that are in positions to write and report about the series and genres.

If there's no culture war why are there frequent cases of developers as an example telling woke dipshits to go fu** themselves?

Because they have nothing better to do and controversy creates cash.

I have no idea who that is.
Neither do I. I suppose it's easier to imagine a culture war if you dig around the fringes of the internet looking to be offended.

I'm just getting sick to ******* death of so-called 'real' Star Wars fans, you know, the kind that harass Kelly-Marie Tran off Twitter or hate the Acolyte before knowing anything about it because it's written by a (gasp) woman about a woman.

Always laugh when I read or hear someone call another a “fake fan”.

That’s living in your mums basement talk.
Is it?

I always thought it was more this f***er has no idea what they are talking about talk and yet they want their opinion to count the most.

It's like Hip Hop, respect the OGs.

The fringes?

They were on MSM being put forth as an expert.

I didn't notice it cause I'm a dude but if there is not a single female character speaking in a 45-minute TV show, then yeah, something might be amiss. It's a valid point. Obviously they brought back Dune, introduced Bo Katan and Ahsoka, and Fennec got some time, but people weren't to know that when they raised the issue.
