USAToday: "Dunkirk" Movie is #Triggering In How Few Women and Minorities (and Probably Transgenders, Too) It Features

Maybe they could have just said that the men being evacuated from Dunkirk were Timelords and they all spontaneously sex-changed.

BTW, the genius librarian who just complained of "racial exhaustion" from seeing too many white people has the same complaint, and also seems to believe that Dunkirk is where D-Day happened.

I guess because of the D.

Dunkirk happened before D-Day, dearheart. The British Expeditionary Forces had entered the war and were beaten badly and forced to attempt an impossible escape. D-Day -- the American invasion of the continent (with the British re-invading) happened later.

"Librarian."

And by the even more of the way, if you think that just making Amy Poehler play Group Captain Reginald St John would have satisfied them, you're wrong. #FakeFeminist Anita Sarkeesian is hoppin' mad that the new transgender Doctor Who (or Doctor What, as I will call xher) is a white and assumedly straight and cis Englishwoman instead of a a person of color or transgender.

Well, I mean, xhe is a transgender, but I guess xhe should be attempting gender reassignment surgery from xher already gender-swapped form.

Feminist critic Anita Sarkeesian, who harassed her critics during a recent panel at VidCon, took issue with the Doctor’s newest regeneration. Writing on the official Feminist Frequency account on Twitter, Sarkeesian condemned Doctor Who for being an “overwhelmingly white show” that simply isn’t doing enough to fix the issue of minority representation in the media–as if it is the show’s duty to address social problems.

“It needs to be said that [Doctor Who] is still an OVERWHELMINGLY white show and that issues of representation do not exist in isolation from each other,” she began. “It’s not as if you fix the ‘woman’ problem, THEN fix the ‘race’ problem, THEN the ‘queer/trans’ problem, etc. It all has to happen in tandem.”
