you know what would be cool? a show about, like, vigilante Victorian prostitutes hunting down Jack the Ripper.
They never did figure out why he stopped killing. And most serial killers don’t stop unless they are stopped. I’m just saying.
HOLY CATS I WANT TO WRITE AND DRAW THIS AS A GRAPHIC NOVEL
OMG THE RESEARCH ALONE WOULD BE AWESOME

01. because women can’t like action or science fiction
without there being any ~female~ things tied into it.
Oh fuck this guy.
The really obnoxious thing here is that this fucking guy is close to the actual point (“in order successfully reboot Star Trek, we need people who do not self-identify as ‘sci-fi fans’ to enjoy this movie”) but, instead of, you know, getting it right, he opts for Sexist Option 1 (“all of those people are women”). Protip: Guys are no more likely to sit through a movie with a nonsensical plot, characters they couldn’t care less about, flat action setpieces, annoying pacing, etc. than anyone else.
I mean, you know who don’t self-identify as sci-fi fans? A shitton of fucking people. For a lot of different reasons. There are a lot of niche/genre fans who will go plunk down their money and park their butts in theater seats for anything with vampires/zombies/Simon Pegg/at least one explosion per five minutes of film/spaceships/etc.
But there are a lot more people—some might say the fucking majority of people, even—who aren’t so enamored of any of those that they’ll go see your movie if that looks like having those is pretty much all your movie has going for it. Hell, there’s even a portion of the prospective movie-going public that has to be actively seduced into seeing your movie once they realize it’s got giant robots/British accents/vampires/stuff they don’t really like.
So, with the exception of that sliver of your prospective audience who will go see something no matter what if it’s in their favorite genre, everybody else on the planet is going to want to see a movie that’s interesting on its own merits as a movie. And even those people who are going to see it no matter what will actively prefer the movie that works as a movie to the one that’s just a genre piece.
Like, do you want to make a movie that your diehard genre fans will just go see, or do you want to make a movie that they’ll recommend to their non-diehard friends? Because that means, generally speaking, that they have to give a shit about the characters. The plot has to more or less make sense. They have to be at least borderline invested in how everything turns out.
Here’s the shocker, though: None of the above has anything to do with gender, you sexist douchebag.
You want women to go see your movie? Don’t actively insult them. That’s it. Done. You want a general audience to go see your movie? See all of the above.

I think Hamlet would have been far happier had he lived in the age of the hipster.
Oh, totally. In my mental headcanon of how to modern AU early modern plays, Hamlet is entirely a hipster, whining about people liking the obscure stuff he likes.
