Wonder Woman is slated as the most anticipated feminist movie of this year. So it’s understandable that some cinemas (both here and abroad) are hosting screenings for mostly women. But when Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Texas announced a “WOMEN ONLY” screening, the men were furious.
New York Postnoted how men expressed their frustration on different social media platforms. One asked why cinemas never hosted “men only” nights for Man of Steel or The Terminator. While others thought they were being discriminated based on their gender.
Meanwhile, the cinema’s creative manager Morgan Hendrix told Mashable that the angry men are only strengthening their advocacy. “That providing an experience where women truly reign supreme has incurred the wrath of trolls only serves to deepen our belief that we’re doing something right.”
Not only that, the proceeds will also go to women’s charities. So the men who are spreading hate right now are probably eating their words and sulking in a corner.
