When the Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas announced they would be holding a few women-only showings of the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, the angry dudes of the internet all cried “foul” at once.
And when one bold man — a conservative journalist by the name of Stephen Miller — bought a ticket for one of these women-only showings, and announced on Twitter he fully intended to attend, darnit, these men knew they had found their Rosa Parks. Only white. And a dude. And not even slightly oppressed by any reasonable definition of the term.
Still, the angry dudes took to Twitter to share their thoughts. Well, their thought. They all seemed to have the exact same one, and they haven’t gotten tired of repeating it yet.
Why can't the little old colored lady just sit at the back of the bus? Why spoil it for the rest of the passengers?

Why complain that you have to sit at the back of the bus Rosa? You got to ride didn't you?

Sure, just like it's totally legit to require black ppl to sit at back of the bus, still being accommodated, right?

"separate but equal"
"back of the bus, front of the bus- what's the big deal?"
"plenty of other lunch counters nearby"

Why didn't Rosa Parks just sit on the back of the bus?

Any discrimination is bad. Would it be ok if I only made black ppl ride at the back of the bus once a day?

and rosa parks could have moved to the back of the bus, it's not like they told her to get off.

Ya, and besides the seats at the back of the bus are just the same. Some ppl just don't know their place, amiright?!?

It's almost as bad as complaining about having to sit at the back of the bus. What an uppity man!

"The seats at the back of the bus are just as comfortable as the ones at the front, so what's the problem?"

"You're not being discriminated against, Mrs Parks. There are plenty of other available seats on the back of the bus."

I don't know, which one bothered black people who had to sit at the back of the bus and use separate water fountains?

I jacked off in the back of the bus not too long ago

Er, sorry about that last one. I don’t think that dude is talking about the Wonder Woman movie at all.
