Get in on this viral marvel and start spreading that buzz! Buzzy was made for all up and coming modern publishers & magazines!

Fb. In. Tw. Be.

This movie wasn’t made with all women in mind, it’s for the women who can ignore certain atrocities which don’t directly affect them.

Dear White Feminists,

FINALLY, a superhero movie for YOU! How marvelous that you finally have a kickass, badass, cisgender, abled bodied, thin, white woman hero to worship on screen. You’ve waited so long, and Warner Brothers has finally given you what you wanted to see.

Now I know, I’m a salty person and I should be happy that the world FINALLY has Wonder Woman as a film, because when white women succeed, everybody succeeds, amirite? Yeah, no.

Listen, how was I supposed to suspend my feminisms for a whole two hours and twenty one minutes? I couldn’t. Every single time Diana Prince (aka- Wonder Woman), shed tears on screen over the children dying at the hands of merciless German soldiers during her trip to the end of World War One, I kept whispering, “but Gal, what about the children in Gaza?”

Yeah, that’s right, y’all think I was just going to let that go unmentioned? I think the fuck not. Your new sexy fave, Gal Gadot is a former Israeli soldier and during Israel’s assault on Gaza in 2014, she posted a picture on Facebook of her and her daughter praying and wrote the following statement:

“I am sending my love and prayers to my fellow Israeli citizens, especially to all the boys and girls who are risking their lives protecting my country against the horrific acts conducted by Hamas, who are hiding like cowards behind women and children…We shall overcome!!! #weareright

The assault in question was widely condemned and took place between July 8 through Aug. 27. More than 2,100 Palestinians were killed along the Gaza strip along with 66 Israeli soldiers, and seven civilians in Israel. The majority of the Palestinian deaths were civilians including 495 children and 253 women.

But this isn’t new, Israel maintains a brutal grip on Palestinians and their daily lives. It is a settler colonialist power and feminists who support it are not feminists if they give zero fucks about Palestinian civilians being brutally oppressed on a daily basis.

This movie wasn’t made with all women in mind, it’s for the women who can ignore certain atrocities which don’t directly affect them. Your children are safe, their bodies aren’t being policed by soldiers, their schools haven’t been bombed, the hospitals they lay in don’t have bullet holes in the walls, their water supplies haven’t been cut, their electricity isn’t regularly shut off by another government.

So go and enjoy your new feminist film, did you hear it was directed by a woman? How swell.

    the only gripe i have is that, you frame her as a former member of the IDF, but they draft you in at 18, it seems a bit dishonest to describe her in a way that doesn’t mention that she’s grown up in a place that is about as authoritarian as the US

  • You’re absolutely right. And this Gal Gadot is a political and artistic fraud.

    Just a remark… Jews are not a part of White people/race (they’re Semites, like Arabs). They’re fair-skinned sometimes, like many Japanese, for example, but they’re not White.

    When we call them White, they hate it, except when it’s useful for them.
