Furious about Furiosa: Misogynists are losing it over Charlize Theron’s starring role in Mad Max: Fury Road

Original poster for the 1979 Mad Max
Original poster for the 1979 Mad Max

So you may have heard vague rumors that there’s a new Mad Max film coming out. You also may have heard that it stars Charlize Theron as a shaven-headed postapocalyptical badass named Furiosa alongside Tom Hardy as Mr. Max.

Well, the manly men of the Manospshere are having none of it. On the always terrible Return of Kings, the most-trafficked blog in the Manosphere, Youtube bloviator Aaron Clarey issues a clarion call to his fellow right-thinking men, urging them to

Not only REFUSE to see the movie, but spread the word to as many men as possible. … Because if [men] sheepishly attend and Fury Road is a blockbuster, then you, me, and all the other men (and real women) in the world will never be able to see a real action movie ever again that doesn’t contain some damn political lecture or moray about feminism, SJW-ing, and socialism.

Er, “moray?”

As Clarey sees it, the central flaw in this film that he hasn’t seen is, well, it’s going to be starring Charlize Theron as a shaven-headed postapocalyptical badass named Furiosa. And that’s just not right, because everyone knows that women are just too damn womeny to be postapocalyptical badasses.

Even worse: in one of the trailers for the film “Charlize Theron’s character barked orders to Mad Max. Nobody barks orders to Mad Max.”

Clarey also reports, with a kind of growing horror, that none other than Eve Ensler, of Vagina Monologues fame, was brought in to consult on the film. (And trust me, Clarey’s discomfort with Ensler has nothing to do with her issues with intersectionality.)

Sure, Clarey acknowledges, Fury Road — at least on the surface — “looks like that action guy flick we’ve desperately been waiting for where it is one man with principles, standing against many with none.” But, he warns, despite not having actually seen even a minute of the actual film, nothing could be further from the truth!

[L]et us be clear. … This is the Trojan Horse feminists and Hollywood leftists will use to (vainly) insist on the trope women are equal to men in all things, including physique, strength, and logic. And this is the subterfuge they will use to blur the lines between masculinity and femininity, further ruining women for men, and men for women.

Lines between masculinity and femininity blurring! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes. The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!

Clarey worries that

men in America and around the world are going to be duped by explosions, fire tornadoes, and desert raiders into seeing what is guaranteed to be nothing more than feminist propaganda, while at the same time being insulted AND tricked into viewing a piece of American culture ruined and rewritten right in front of their very eyes.

You might think that someone this worried about the legacy of the original Mad Max might have noticed somewhere along the way that Mad Max is not actually a “piece of American culture” at all. It was an Australian film, filmed in Australia, directed by an Australian, and starring an American citizen who’d been living in Australia since the age of twelve.

I’m guessing that the director of Fury Road might have a somewhat more nuanced understanding of the original Mad Max than someone who doesn’t even know what country the movie was made in, especially given that the director of Fury Road, the director of the original Mad Max, the director of The Road Warrior and the director of Beyond Thunderdome are actually all the very same person.

But over on Return of Kings the fellas are as furious about Furiosa as Clarey is. In the top comment to Clarey’s piece, with several dozen upvotes, someone calling himself “truth” complains that the evil feminists who run Hollywood are ignoring the immutable truths of gender.

Hollywood is a garbage propoganda machine which spews out this feminist drivel filth into the minds of today’s young audience. Even though science has told us and proven, that men are physically stronger than women, it is nonetheless discarded by the forces driving this feminist nonsense.

There is a sick agenda at play here, and it only continues to get worse over time. First this, and now the upcoming “Terminator Genisys” which shows Sarah Connor in a more heroic and superior position to that of Kyle Reese, really makes me wonder how much further down the toilet society is going to go down, in it’s ridiculous attempts to try and reverse the traditional gender and biological roles.

Because “traditional” and “biological” roles always seem to be the exact same thing to these guys.

It is clear that the brainwashing of the masses will continue to go on with the promotion of these absurd movies in conjunction with the whole “girl power” themes that are present in these films. Furthermore, factor in the indoctrination of the liberal schooling and educational system, there is no doubt, that masculinity will be attacked from all sides in attempt to make the female gender more superior. …

I guess from the damage that I am seeing on a daily basis being inflicted by the feminist movement, there is really no turning back. Men will continue to opt out of society and by rejecting to watch these kind of movies, can help to further cement this narrative. And if ever, should the manginas and white knights reach that epiphany when they realise they are not perceived as a credible voice in this feminist driven gynocentric matriarchy that we live in, then even they will opt out of society.

Huh. And, let me guess, once the men all “opt out of society,” it’ll collapse in a giant heap and desperate women will turn to men for help? No wonder these guys are so angry about Fury Road; it challenges their favorite apocalyptic fantasy. Call it Mad Max: I Told You Bitches You’d Come Crawling Back to Me.

Women and feminists in general have without a doubt, proven that they are dysfunctional by nature and cannot be trusted with anything. And this movie helps to prove it.

FWIW, dude, the movie was directed by a man. It was written by men. And even though it’s got a lot more women in it than your typical action movie, most of the named actors in it are male. But apparently, to guys like Clarey and “truth,” it only takes a few drops of female blood to contaminate an entire action film.

Always maintain your masculinity.

And once again it’s the guys who think of themselves as the most macho who are the ones most anxious about their masculinity.

Truth is also horrified by one of the posters he’s seen for the film:

Even though the movie is called “Mad Max”, the poster clearly centres around Charlize Theron, while Tom Hardy looks like some ordinary guy in the background.

A woman’s face … in front of a man’s face! Can masculinity survive this terrible assault?

Slashfund complains that in the poster it “looks like he is wearing a muzzle like her bitch.”

Well, not really. Anyone who’s seen the original Max Max and its first two sequels may remember that a lot of the characters wore weird headgear and creepy masks; this was intended to make them look scary and, you know, postapocalyptic. Max’s new mask is no different.

Clark Kent whines

Where I can’t stand these female characters in kickass movies is when it is so damn obvious that they are forcing the female character in just to appeal to the blue-pill masses. The whole point of Mad Max is that he is the most hardened self-respecting man in the post-apocalyptic world. He lived through the decline, and thus carries all the grief of having been strong enough to see what the world has become.

To turn Mad Max upside down and make it into a feminist flick is horribly telling of our times. Rather than creating new films to depict the world from a women’s perspective, we take the great myths of men and boys and rewrite them to make women happy.

What? Mad Max is a “great myth of men and boys” now? It’s a movie made in 1979, not a tale told around the campfire by our ancient ancestors. And don’t any of you Return of Kingers remember Beyond Thunderdome, the second Mad Max sequel, released six years after the original? You know, the one co-starring Tina Turner, stomping around like a badass as the ruthless ruler of Bartertown?

Like it or not, fellas, but badass women are part of Mad Max canon.

MajorStyles, for his part, suggests that the film may be part of a sinister plot to con men into liking women with (gasp!) short hair — a major Manosphere bugaboo.

And what’s the end game of all this horse shit? That Alpha men will start finding bald, androgyonous women with anger issues attractive? Yeah, when pigs fly…

Again, another fail on the part of Team Feminism. As it has been noted many times, they do not get to order men what to be attracted to. Erections cannot be legislated. Only a man of supreme thirst would find this angynous thing attractive.

And the women who choose to impersonate Theron’s look in this movie will always be relagated to the same position – bridesmaid, cat lady, or beta male abuser.

TS77RP1, meanwhile, wants his fellow men to think of the children. And what he thinks about the children — specifically, those of the female persuasion — is genuinely horrifying.

Seriously: if you’re having a decent day so far, or, hell, a crappy one — basically, if you’re a having any sort of day so far, you may want to skip the rest of this post. No joke.

.

.

Ok, if you’re still with me, here we go:

The only way back is to begin punishing ambition in our daughters and in all female children. They need to be physically and psychologically disciplined to be servile and deferential and they unfortunately need to have it beaten into them that they should NEVER trust their own judgement and always seek guidance and permission of their male headships.

Please tell me this monster doesn’t have a daughter.

My daughter would be turned out with nothing but a shirt on her back if she so much as looked at a college website or played with her brother’s educational toys.

Aw, fuck.

She would be belted to the point of being unable to sit if she exhibited confidence in decision making.

Fucking hell. A proud abuser.

I don’t want my wife to step foot out of the house unless her every dime and minute spent can be accounted for and executed in conjuncture with my approval. My daughter will exude obedience and timidity for whoever her future husband is and it’s imperative that all Christian Men demand nothing less within their own homes. Playtime for feminazis and the left is over. This is our world and our heritage to protect. Let the cultural war begin!

No words.

In a followup comment, he assures one skeptic that his wife and daughter are indeed real.

I do in fact implement this in my own home and practice what I preach vehemently. I have a daughter and sons and they are being raised to know that they are unequivocally different and 100% not equal. My wife is from a highly devout family and she was cowed long ago into obedience by her powerful, alpha father. I kinda won the life lottery >:^)

I can only hope that he’s bullshitting in an attempt to impress the Return of Kings regulars.

But impress them he does, winning upvotes and an awestruck comment by englishbob:

Wow! Its like you have a mini Saudi Arabia right in your home!

Apparently hatred of women trumps hatred of Muslims on Return of Kings.

I have no idea if Mad Max: Fury Road is actually going to be a good film. But I hope it does well, very well, if for no other reason than to spite these assholes.

Here’s the problem, Furiosia is ordering Max around. Max doesn’t take orders from anyone… man, woman, magical indigo child, no one. Max tolerates suggestions from other lesser beings (everyone else on the planet), but no one orders him to do anything.

Er, Clarey is wrong about the trailer. It shows Furiosa barking orders at someone (could be Max, could be someone else). Furthermore, even if she is barking orders at Max, it doesn’t mean that Max is following them. The trailer certainly doesn’t show that.

Also, as others have pointed out, people have barked orders to Max in other Mad Max films before.

The funniest thing is that Men’s Rights Activists have no problem with Mad Max. The site you keep referencing (http://www.returnofkings.com/ ) is anti-men’s rights. They’re a red pill site.

TeRPers in Chaos!: ALERT! FEMINISM SIGHTED! DIVERT ALL STEAK DINNER POWER TO THE MASCULINITY SHIELDS! ALERT!

[PSA] Mad Max: is a ‘Feminist Action Film’ – Don’t expect a masculine movie (self.TheRedPill)

The movie will be marketed to men. But it isn’t for men. It is feminist propaganda included into a masculine franchise.

“Currently with 31 reviews, it has a score of 100%, meaning 100% recommend seeing it. The current average score, meaning the ratings of all the reviews combined, is 9.3, that’s a really insanely high rating”

A masculine movie would not get such ratings. The perfect score is for it being feminist propaganda.

So if you want to see more feminist propaganda marketed as masculine action movie go see Fury Road. If not, at least wait for the first user reviews. A lot of men are going to be angry at being fooled into paying.

I’m not too sure Dingo actually looked through the search results of the link they posted.

I clicked on about three threads and saw posts: laughing about the failure of the Men’s Rights boycott; saying they now want to see the Vagina Monologues; declaring “If Furiosa will be making “Mad Max” a feminist movie just like Ripley made “Alien” a feminist movie, well… …call me a goddamn feminist.”

Um.

there is a good 10-15 minutes of decent writing in this movie, forwarding past all the noise and violence. then just when the movie was getting good that one lady almost had a baby, that was scary. jk.. all in all no disappointment.. i like more plot and less dialogue when it works. i think they pulled it off.

robertrun,
Sour grapes. That film was amazing. You went to an action movie and were disappointed by all the action? Bullshit.

A friend called me yesterday to nerd out over Fury Road. The Easter eggs alone were awesome. We we’re both like, “The stunts! The costuming! The writing! The acting! The characters! The editing!” *faces melt*
He said he was going to see it with his wife, but since she worked yesterday he was going to see it one more time without her. 3X on the big screen in 3D is how watchable Fury Road is. There is so much action that you almost have to watch it multiple times. This is an instant classic. George Miller outdid himself.
You mad, bro. You so mad.

You feminist live in a world of delusion. Thousands of years of human history clearly show the differing natures of men and women. Yet feminist believe these facts should be ignored. For you reality is the anomaly. For you truth is the fantasy world in your head. Every institution you’ve got your hands on has collapsed: such as the Family and education system. Human beings aren’t androgynous. Using the government to force this on us will simply disintegrate our society.

@M:
The best part of that scene is that the cat wasn’t scripted. There were some feral cats in the studio lot which had gradually become invisible to everyone involved in the production. During that take, one of them just happened to be wandering through the set. Brando, who likes cats, scooped it up and started stroking it in that entirely subconscious way that people who like cats do. He also did this a lot when not filming, so nobody saw it as particularly out of place: it was only when editing that they worked out how much better that take was because of the cat.

This is why the cat never reappears in the rest of the film.

“It’s a movie made in 1979, not a tale told around the campfire by our ancient ancestors.”

Well, to be fair, in the Mad Max universe, Australia goes from (barely) functioning society with police to kids telling garbled prophecies of Tomorrow-morrow Land just in Max’s lifetime. I’m sure that, from the MRA perspective, western civilization has declined analogously in the last few decades, and from my perspective, the “Return of Kings” crowd might as well be a bunch of uneducated children with a confused understanding of how the world works.

I do not share the hysteria among men about the presence of strong female role models in cinema. As a man I have no urge to defend the honor of Mad Max, I do not see him as the incarnation of some kind of pure masculinity worth aspiring to, It takes a post apocalyptic wasteland to turn his kind of qualities into virtues.
I guess if these men who are up in arms are insecure about their own worth then the idea of women competing with them on a level playing field must be very threatening.
Feminism is about freeing women from oppression and it still has a very long way to go. Men are not oppressed just because women are empowered unless their power came from exploiting women. And if men feel they are disempowered then they need to look to their political masters and stop scapegoating women.

Sounds like a load of BS to me. But if he’s serious, I hope his daughter turns out confident, strong, a feminist – a legit one, gay – just to rub salt in the wound – and everything else this asshole dosn’t think women should be.
