We recently had an article about this in the DN news. Can we leave it alone?
Back before the world was civilized, the story was written for the story, not
for the politics. I am surprised to see this again in this paper. Maybe we
should start complaining about the relatively few male actors in "Little
Women," which is also a classic. Please...
@ Kaladin,No that wouldn't make everyone happy either.
Unfortunately in our current obsession with being Politically Correct and
Racially/Gender Sensitive one can no longer just create a good movie. The
original Star Wars (Episode IV, A New Hope) had a few female roles but only the
one prominent female role. Likewise with other roles there was a large variety
of sentient species but Mr. Lucas did not create his characters with specific
races, genders, etc. in mind.
Why don't we just make the entire cast female? Would that be enough?
