    Saw a great meme this morning, just cant pull it up on google. Showed Colossus being choked in Deadpool, "No one bats an eye". Then Apocalypse is choking mystique, "Every feminist loses their shit" (They already lost their minds when they became feminists).
    Progressivism; such great ideas, they need to force you to follow them.

    Yeah ... I liked Batman v Superman but many critics didn't. I am sure I will like XMen ...

    I liked Batman v Superman too, but I hate the fact that they killed Superman at the end. Killing him in the comics is one thing, because you can do a long drawn-out process to bring him back.

    Now I feel like there's going to be a Justice League movie with a story line that bears a striking resemblence Star Trek III, where they bring Spock back. While ST3 wasn't THE worst movie in the series (I'd rank it the third worst after ST1, and the worst being ST5); it was still a horrible movie, and we don't need the DC movies going that route.

    I posted this elsewhere and the majority of comments were the same as on here. "Wtf?" One person dissented and said that the poster glorifies the history of violence against women or some shit. I don't know where she got that from.

    First off, it's not real people is what I even told her. Secondly, Mystique is a shape shifter. She can be anyone or anything. So technically you could say she's female and male honestly.

    I also pointed out how she kicks the shit out of and kills men and women throughout all the movies. But in this scene she's going up against the most powerful mutant it seems. Of course she gets attacked.

    I asked this person did she get upset at the fight scenes in Mr. and Mrs. Smith? Or that spy movie Angelina Jolie replaced Tom Cruise in? Or Tomb Raider? She fights men in all those and they fight her right back.

    This is a big difference from a movie where the theme is domestic violence or something. Like just about any Lifetime movie. I think most people and most women have absolutely no issue with that poster. It sounded like it was mostly Rose McGowan or whatever her name is trying to be relevant and making a fuss.

    This is similar to people responding to Civil War by bitching about Captain America being a rugged alpha male. Yes, it happened. Everybody wants men to be women these days, and nobody wants men to be men.

    I remember that, the strong blond gal choked Colossus, and no one got their panties in a bunch. BUT an evil baddie does it to Mistique, and people go ape shit crazy.
    BUT if you watch the film that happens JUST after she tries cutting his HEAD OFF....

    I don't remember any outrage when Anakin force-choked Padme in Episode III.

    Really, what's acceptable and what's not is one big roller coaster ride. Anyone remember a video game called "Final Fight" from the early 90's? It was a classic side-scrolling beat 'em up (most popular genre of video game at the time), and but there was controversy because all three playable characters were male, and there were female enemies (though Final Fight wasn't the first to have this. The first two installments of Double Dragon had female enemies).

    So what did they do in response to the backlash? They said that the "female" enemies on Final Fight were transvestites. Probablem solved. Of course, this was 25 years ago. That explanation wouldn't fly today.

    I used to love playing Final fight.
    And i agree, there was No outrage at Anakin force choking Padme in EP 3. BUT maybe the difference was it was a force choke, not a hand around throat choke..

    True no outrage publicly like this but I'm sure most people watching were like "Wtf dude?" I would think THAT would be more outrage than Mystique getting choked. I mean that's technically domestic violence if it were in this world- they were married. Some people...that's all that can be said.
