    My only counter is, why in a world where women are being murdered for refusing a marriage purposal, does this kind of thing come close to being improtant right now?

The last time I had a conversation like this with a hubski user, not only could he spell "proposal" and "important" correctly, and took the time to make sure that his post was, indeed, spellcheck-proof, but I still ended up telling him his parents must not have hugged him enough as a child. Hugs matter. Hugs don't solve world hunger, but hugs matter.

The answer is that not everything can be solved in giant sweeping strokes. Small movements towards a resolution, or better world, matter just as much as large movements. We cannot always afford to make large, huge, gigantic steps towards equality, but that does not mean that small steps to equality do not also matter because they are not huge.

We cannot solve every problem, especially complex problems like racism or feminism, at once, in one fell stroke. It is necessary to take steps. Are you familiar with the idea that a marathon is completed in steps? That without every single step taken, a marathon is not complete?

Shit like this is a single step. Suck it up and deal with it. It does not become irrelevant because it does not constitute a mile.

I like how you automatically relegate "speeches about love" to be something that "female characters do." Why should females give more of a shit about love than males?

    Also, I don't feel there are no lead female action movie roles

Do you recognize that there is a difference between "no" (0%) and "equal inclusion" (50%)?

I don't give a shit that you don't feel bad about a lack of female roles. I give a shit that there aren't a lot of them.

Oh, are all liberals feminist now?

Get the fuck off a good website, and die.
