This is why we can’t have nice things.
In a move that if it weren’t so stupidly real might be considered parody, an anonymous Men’s Rights Activist uploaded his version of Star Wars: The Last Jedi to Pirate Bay. The anonymous user edited the film in a way to remove any female character from the cut. The user at the center of this latest round of insecure dumbness gave it the title “The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit” (clever).
Dude Bro #1 also breaks down the parts of the film he removed because they made his man parts cry:
“Cut out most shots showing female fighters/pilots and female officers commanding people around/having ideas.“
“NO HALDO (sic)! She simply doesn’t exist. Her whole subplot doesn’t exist. The Kamikaze is carried out by Poe. ( = Poe dies.)“
“Leia never scolds, questions nor demotes Poe. He is a respected and very skilled high-ranking member of the resistance.“
“When there’s a scene where a woman is cut in making some important statement that can be substituted by another statement by a guy, then she gets cut out. Works pretty well actually.“
“Wookie eats the Porg, or at least isn’t interrupted in trying to do so.“
News of the edit started making its way to the web last night and it prompted this response from Star Wars: The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson;

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is in theaters. If you’re looking for the MRA Stupid-Cut, go to your therapist and let he/she know who hurt you first.
