Sigh. Can’t win.

Everybody goes on about how we need to have more women and minorities in starring roles, both in society and in movies.

Until … wait for it … a strong new female superhero is an Israeli Jew.

Yes, Wonder Woman, the impressive Gal Gadot, soon to be the lead in her very own movie after debuting the role in Batman vs. Superman, was born in Israel and served in the Israeli Defense Forces. Therefore … tweetstorm of bigotry against her.

  1. Gal Gadot isn’t a real woman, because she doesn’t fit the mold of the left wing. Hell, she is comfortable with guns, served in the military, has the audacity to be Jewish, and probably works out to stay in shape just because, not because of her next movie role. I bet she even isn’t a liberal. She not only will never get nominated for an Oscar, she won’t be invited to the after parties. But they are willing to use her to make millions of dollars on her movies.
