Chris Hemsworth is known for the heroic roles he plays as Thor in the Thor movies as well as the Avenger movies. I think my favorite is the character he played in Red Dawn. The brawn and the bravery suits him well.
Politics however, not to much. By politics, I mean the whole charade of going overboard to make sure women are “equal” to men. They have far surpassed equality and sailed right into supremacy.
The writers of Doctor Who have already decided to cast the next Doctor (a Time Lord) as a woman. This is extremely disappointing because the Doctor is NOT a Time “Lady” and many fans are very upset. It’s not like the show has ever lacked a strong female role, as the companions are always independent females.
Now, Chris Hemsworth wants to cast James Bond as a female role. He believes that Charlize Theron, the star of upcoming movie Atomic Blonde, should be cast as the 007 agent.
He said, “She embodies every ounce of strength and nobility and dignity and integrity that the character should have,” He continued “She’s smart as hell. She’s physically able. Ya know watching her in those fight scenes [in Snow White and the Huntsman], doing it in high heels by the way and 8-foot long gown, was even more impressive. And I just think why not? It’s time.”
Uh, no? James Bond’s character is a MAN! You can create a similar story with a woman but you cannot replace Bond himself with a female character. Yes, women can do the same things that men do, but that doesn’t always mean they should!
As Daily Wire reports:
But Bond is Bond. He has a character. He’s an ultra-straight womanizer fulfilling teenage boy fantasies. That’s the point of the character. It just doesn’t work the same way with a woman. Bond is a bad boy because he can seduce any woman, no matter how unavailable or beautiful. Making Bond a woman changes that calculus utterly, because virtually any mildly attractive woman can do the same with virtually any man. It’s not a challenge for Charlize Theron to get a man in bed. As Amy Schumer has said, “I’m 160 lbs., and I can catch a d*** whenever I want.” She’s scientifically accurate. As David Schmitt, Ph.D. writes at Psychology Today:
Over the last few decades almost all research studies have found that men are much more eager for casual sex than women are (Oliver & Hyde, 1993; Petersen & Hyde, 2010). This is especially true when it comes to desires for short-term mating with many different sexual partners (Schmitt et al., 2003), and is even more true for wanting to have sex with complete and total strangers (Tappé et al., 2013). In a classic social psychological experiment from the 1980s, Clark and Hatfield (1989) put the idea of sex differences in consenting to sex with strangers to a real-life test. They had experimental confederates approach college students across various campuses and ask, “I’ve been noticing you around campus. I find you to be very attractive. Would you go to bed with me tonight?” Around 75 percent of men agreed to have sex with a complete stranger, whereas no women (0 percent) agreed. In terms of effect size, this is one of the largest sex differences ever discovered in psychological science (Hyde, 2005).
This is not a matter of sexism but a matter of science. When have you ever seen a tiny woman beat up men twice her size without some kind of “super power” or something? Never. How could Theron’s tiny size fit the shoes of James Bond?
It’s just not right.
