Gender inequality in sci-fi/action films. By my nine year old.

Guest post by WonderBoy (age 9 3/4). Homework: Having learned about protest songs in class, write a protest rap on an issue of your choosing. So…

When I watch a movie
With a snack and a smoothie
I notice that all the stars are dudes
And the women look half nude

When a female character’s about to die
They just have to get rescued by a guy
They’re never stars, they’re just girlfriends
And when they’re kissed, the movie ends

So what I really want to ask
Is why half the people in my class
Are told they can’t be tough
‘Cause they just ain’t good enough

Yeah, you’re a good egg, son. Happy International Women’s Day everybody!
