Mad Max: The Feminist Agenda

While traveling I like to go see movies and the opportunity came up to see Mad Max: Fury Road last night in 3D.

The best part of the movie is the chase car that has the drummers and the flamethrower guitar.  That was a cool idea!

Other than that, it was the same thing that we have seen out of Hollywood, a sequel that while OK, does not live up to the awesomeness of the first.

What I did not see was the “feminist agenda” that is mentioned on websites such as this: http://reverbpress.com/sexes/mens-rights-activists-mad-feminist-agenda-mad-max-call-boycott-video/

The story is a hero who realizes that keeping people as objects AGAINST THEIR WILL, is wrong.  The key here being the against their will part.  Men and women should always have the same basic rights, even in a BDSM or D/s relationship.  While they may want to be treated as objects as part of that relationship they are still people and have a value beyond that of a PS4 or a canoe.  Both of which are objects that we can get hours of pleasure out of.

The movie has a balance of both the female and male leads being bad ass and the focus is more on both of them looking for redemption than on any agenda (other than to get away from a megalomaniac).

On the other hand, there are a lot of chains, restraints, and other toys in the movie, so it gets my vote there; but certainly do not boycot it because of any agenda the movie does not have!
