Rey From Star Wars is Overpowered and it’s Terrible for Feminism
Emma Lindsay

Star Wars is about magic. Luke should have died the first time he fought Vader. The next two movies are what showed his progression. So maybe just hold off a bit on the scathing life comparisons to a sci-fi movie until the next two come out & reveal the full story.

Are you arguing that women don’t need mythological heroes, just real ones?

Your accomplishments sound amazing and I’m sure many women will live better lives based off your example.

However my daughter (4) who loves Star Wars went to see it with me and I assure you she was very aware that it was a movie, about “Space Magic.” But in this one a girl got to be the hero. (What other else can she see that?)
