Thank you. I have no idea why I was banned. The reason said "trolling." So I have no idea. So I don't plan on changing my behavior even remotely, which means another ban is likely in the forseeable future.

Going back to your thoughts on the topic, that seems to be the general consensus to far, and it looks like we're all pretty much in agreement; that Black Widow was poorly written in that scene, and it enforced old stereotypes, but it wasn't necessarily insanely "sexist" or at least not to the level that would justify people being outraged.

I also agree with the general feelings expressed in this thread.

That's the problem with SJW culture -- they are more keen on addressing things like this as opposed to much more serious, life threatening and expression destroying oppression and systematic gender control.

This is so meaningless in the grand scheme of things but I think people are mad because it's yet another casual example of how ****ed up and ingrained the patriarchal mindset is.

TL;DR it's stupid and ****ed up but there are bigger fish to fry. That being said I appreciate that we live in a society where things like this are paid attention to. I think it shows a sense of progression because 30 years ago noone would have cared.

You can have problems with multiple things at once - there's no way that me saying that the movie is sexist keeps me from saying that more "meaningful" things are too.

You're a regular Batlord wearing down jokes that were lame to begin with to death.

And you're a walking stereotype with nary an original thought in your head, which is the prime reason for why you overcompensate by trying so desperately to fulfill what you perceive to be the archetype of "the scholar". We're all flawed.
