May MRAs' Misogyny Ruin Everything for Them Always

For many years now, we've had to listen to Men's Rights Activists (MRAs) and sundry other manbabies whine that everything from casting Idris Elba as Heimdall to an all-female Ghostbusters reboot was retroactively ruining their childhoods.

Naturally, the current Star Wars sequels (and prequels) are driving MRAs to distraction with their shameless inclusion of people of color and MULTIPLE WOMEN OMGGGGGG.

So, some righteously outraged dude re-cut The Last Jedi to remove all the women:
According to Pedestrian, an anonymous user uploaded a film called "The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit" to Pirate Bay on Sunday, referring to the person as an "MRA," or "Men's Rights Activist." Just in case the video's intent was unclear, the MRA in question also titled it "The Chauvinist Cut."

Where would the new Star Wars movie be without its many powerful female figures? At least this one guy wants to know, because he's so unhappy with The Last Jedi that he turned the 152-minute movie into a 46-minute episode of men doing things in space. The user describes the cut as "basically The Last Jedi minus Girlz Powah and other silly stuff."
Some people have posited that the misogynist fan edit was created by someone doing a mighty impression of an MRA, rather than an actual MRA, to which I'd say where's the joke and what is it even, since some dipshit claimed responsibility "for tanking the Rotten Tomatoes audience score" of The Last Jedi, because girls have cooties. For real.

The point is, if it's supposed to be a parody of MRAs, it's indistinguishable from actual content produced by MRAs, many of whom are no doubt enjoying this woman-free version at this very moment. It's real enough, no matter who created it.

Which doesn't mean it's still not a fucking joke, of course!

All the best folks are laughing at it, in fact. Like the director of The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson.

And Mark "Luke Skywalker" Hamill.

And John "Finn" Boyega.

LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!! All I can say is:
