One comment on “300: Rise of An Empire (THIS. IS. MISOGYNY… oops, I meant SPARTA!)

  1. I just watched this movie last night and the whole time I was thinking exactly the same thing. In its heart, not only is it unnecessary and misogynistic but it is also lazy story-telling. There could have been a hundred reasons why Artemisia hated the Greeks, if they even needed a better reason than “she though Xerxes would win”, without going to rape victim. And the fact that they had no redemption or anything really just tops the cake in misogyny.

    I am honestly surprised more people haven’t called it out like say on tumblr which has very large numbers of social justice groups.
