I have had to close the comments thread following my review of Captain Marvel, because it had descended into a battle between a deliberate troll and those who were making honest but of course futile efforts to get him to understand, oh, basically everything about how his white male privilege (which he of course denies) has blinkered him about pop culture (and so much else).
But I invite all the whiny manbabies like to read this important thread from Jennifer Harrison on Twitter and perhaps begin to understand why this movie is so beloved by so many and why it is speaking so powerfully to women and other non-white-male people:
Is it ok to talk about Captain Marvel spoilers now? If not, mute this thread.
It's bugging me that the most constant criticism (but one I've literally only heard from men) is that Danvers has no arc. She's super powerful at the start and the end. No personal journey pic.twitter.com/YZS8GPsNaz
