As I keep seeing that this is the 23rd anniversary of that piece of sh*t movie ‘Thelma & Louise’, which was laughably construed as such a watershed moment for white women being portrayed as strong characters in a movie, let me make this clear to anyone who has any delusions of this being nothing but a nod to what will happen to you if you don’t bow down to structural white male domination:
Only in a patriarchal and misogynist world can the two female lead characters in a movie get treated like sh*t by men, almost get raped, be suckered into having their money taken by a young Lothario, go on the lam and then finally drive off a f*cking cliff in the end and it somehow be seen as a film that represents the “empowerment of women.”
The only message to construe from this is that “empowerment” towards the white male patriarchal society ultimately means DEATH for the white female, the same way that the only thing you can construe from a movie like ‘The Butler’ is that the best way for a black man to survive is to stay CONTINUOUSLY subservient, our PROPER place. I defy anyone who is being totally honest or has a brain in their head to come to any other conclusion.
