What To Do About Mary Sue?

Over at Dalrock’s, Commenter Eidolon, in reference to Star Wars: The Force Awakens states,

There’s a big problem having a woman as your action lead (other than it’s completely asinine, as women lack the warrior instinct as well as the physical strength): you can’t have the villain beat them up.

In ESB, Vader just kicks the living crap out of Luke and then saws off his arm. It’s a crucial bit of character development and an awesome scene, and any man can relate to a situation where he did his best and got beaten badly. It shows Luke how far there is to go, how inadequate he is and how hard he’s going to have to work to reach Vader’s level if he ever wants to win.

Nobody would want to see that happen to a cute girl. It would be unpleasant to sit through. Thus the girl character has to be a Mary Sue because she can never lose; if she lost she’d get beaten up and/or injured by the male villain (and thus be less pretty!), and that’s not allowable. Basically the writing sucks because it’s not really possible to have a non-Mary Sue female main character.

According to the above, Director JJ Abrams had no choice but to make the Rey character into a Mary Sue.  There might be a good bit of truth to this.  But probably, he wanted to make her awesome in her own right, to make up for past oppression and stuff.

But let us consider the possible implications here.   It would now seem that it is just about impossible to make women into the common movie character portraying “work, suffer, risk, work, have setback, work, suffer, risk, get close to winning, then win”.  The Rocky Balboa character comes to mind.  And most people understand that much of good character building comes out of suffering.  And Rey did not really do that (scavenging for a living is not real suffering, at least in the movies).  Luke Skywalker has to risk and suffer much, and had mentoring by the truly awesome Yoda before he had the character and skills to face Vader.  And even then, he pretty much lost twice.  In short — nobody believes in Rey’s character; and much of it for this reason.

What other implications might there be?  One wonders if as it says above that a primary issue is the prettiness of the character.  One can’t allow her to be beaten up and be less pretty.  Prettiness is of course a proxy for child bearing capability, and societies normally don’t want that to go to waste (except for modern western ones of course, still, the notion is there).  So yes, she cannot be allowed to be less pretty.  As for Princess Leia, one wonders if the converse is not now true.

Here on earth, one wonders if women will ever truly be allowed into combat, not withstanding all the hoo-haa about opening combat job to them. Pretty women coming home in body bags will trigger a response that is undoubtedly both visceral and historical.  Probably it would stop.

So what to do?  Probably nothing can be done.  The fantasies in the movies and in the military will continue until such time that it becomes obvious that all of this silliness is just plain stupid.  And when we reach that point, life will have been interesting for a while.

    I appear to be one of the few people who walked out of the new Star Wars picture. I couldn’t take another of this new iteration of the sexy, empowered female warrior b.s. I’ve only seen one of the Hunger Games movies, and disliked the Mad Max feminist rewrite, for the same reason.

    In regard to *actually* treating female leads like their male equivalent, consider The Hateful Eight.

    Jennifer Jason Leigh plays a condemned murderer/gang member being transported to her hanging. Tarantino, who appears to be making another movie about the inherent racism, bigotry, sexism, and ruthless violence of the stained American soul, uses Leigh to shock audiences as she is punched around graphically — much worse than Stallone ever was in any 11th round of a fight. The violence, this being Tarantino, is ironic, in the sense that we’re not supposed to be enlivened by it, but understand his Higher Literary Purpose. But actually there is a pornographic leer to the scenes of Leigh’s abasement, as brains are spattered across her face and blood drips from her hair and her teeth are knocked out. All of this is quite explicit. I doubt that I am much different than many movie-goers: I was disgusted but I kept watching.

    Usually this sort of stuff is just played out on the male characters in a Tarantino or more common blood-and-guts movie.

    My view of Tarantino is pretty low and I’ve mentioned to a few friends that the movie is really just mainstream violence porn (there’s no t & a) with an SJW wrapper – thus not recommended. He just keeps upping the ante, in respect of his version of comic-pop violence, and this time there’s no redeeming charm (e.g., Uma Thurman dancing in Pulp Fiction). The anti-American loathing is central to this picture as well, and like a good Hollywood liberal he slathers on his contempt for his audience while appealing to their worst instincts for a new, fresh, titillating shock.

    Leigh was raped graphically and violently at the conclusion of Last Exit to Brooklyn, around about 1988 (the movie version of Hubert Selby’s novel). I love the book and the movie, up to that point, but I haven’t seen it since it came out. I guess she likes to push the envelope.

    A history there is,

    people like supposed Dutch extremist Geert Wilders (actually he’s basically a libertarian) to speak out honestly on this horrifying situation. Wilders and Machiel de Graaf write today at the Gatestone Institute (Give Women the Right to Defend Themselves) :

    “Cultural enrichment” has brought us a new word: Taharrush. Remember it well, because we are going to have to deal with it a lot. Taharrush is the Arabic word for the phenomenon whereby women are encircled by groups of men and sexually harassed, assaulted, groped, raped. After the Cologne taharrush on New Year’s Eve, many German women bought pepper spray. Who can blame them?
    A culture that has a specific word for sexual assaults of women by groups of men is a danger to all women. The existence of the word indicates that the phenomenon is widespread. Frau Merkel, Prime Minister Rutte and all the other open-door politicians could and should have known this.

    Where does this behavior come from? Well, partly from tribal culture but also from text, as Wilders and de Graaf specify:

    The Islamic world is steeped in misogyny. The Koran explicitly states that a woman is worth only half a man (Suras 2: 228, 2: 282, 4:11), that women are unclean (5:6), and that a man can have sex with his wife whenever he wants (24:31). The Koran even says that men are allowed to have sex slaves (4:24), and that they have the right to rape women whom they have captured (24:31).
    The hadiths, the descriptions of the life of Muhammad, the ideal human being whose example all the Islamic faithful must follow, confirm that women are sex objects, that they are inferior beings like dogs and donkeys, and that there is nothing wrong with sexual slavery and raping female prisoners.

    I know – not very PC. And certainly not permissible language on our trigger warning happy college campuses. But recent events from Egypt to Austria to Sweden as well as Germany demonstrate the reality of the situation. To what extent will it come here? We know that on some covert levels it already has, but so far no taharrush. I think the vast majority of us would like to keep it that way.

    The big question is how. The Obama method is to ignore it, focus on the putatively rampant Islamophobia and then continue his wide open Muslim immigration. (He naturally ignores that there were considerably more hate crimes against Jews last year in the US than against Muslims.)

    At the very minimum, what should be done is a serious restriction on the entrance of young Muslim males, the only practitioners of taharrush and the leading practitioners of terrorism.

    Now the picture is emerging,

    Many years ago in Cairo I struck up a conversation with an Australian woman at a restaurant who was traveling around on break from her job at the Ministry of Defense.

    “This is the absolute worst place for a woman to travel alone,” she said. “Men harass me constantly. They hiss, stare, and make kissy noises.”

    I told her what one of my Syrian friends once said to my wife, that if she ever goes there she should carry a spare shoe in her purse. If any man gives her trouble and she whacks him with the bottom of the shoe, a mob will chase him down and kick his ass.

    The Australian woman laughed. “Syria is wonderful, though. I mean, it’s much more oppressive than Egypt. But it’s also more modern. No man ever bothered me there. No men bothered me in Lebanon, either. I was surprised. Lebanese and Syrian men are more respectful even than European men.”

    I can’t know from personal experience what it’s like to walk around as a woman in the Middle East or North Africa, but I’ve spent more than a decade of my life on and off in that part of the world and have had conversations with more than a thousand people, men and women alike. Women are unanimous here: Harassment in North Africa ranges from annoying to unspeakable while it’s virtually non-existent in Lebanon and Syria. I don’t know why. That’s just how it is.

    “The worst part is that Egyptian men won’t back down when I tell them to leave me alone,” the Australian woman in Cairo added.

    The Cologne police department says most of the offenders come from North Africa rather than Syria, which is exactly what we should expect.

    “In a 2008 survey by the Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights,” Mona Eltahawy writes in her book, Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution. “More than 80 percent of Egyptian women said they’d experienced sexual harassment, and more than 60 percent of men admitted to harassing women. A 2013 UN survey reported that 99.3 percent of Egyptian women experience street sexual harassment. Men grope and sexually assault us, and yet we are blamed for it because we were in the wrong place at the wrong time, wearing the wrong thing.”

    Sexual assault in public is so pervasive in Egypt that the authorities ban men from some cars on the subway so women can get to work in the morning without being mauled.

    Foreign women get it in Egypt, too, most infamously when CBS reporter Lara Logan was brutally assaulted in Cairo’s Tahrir Square on the night the Egyptian army removed Hosni Mubarak from power. An enormous mob surrounded her, stripped her naked, sexually assaulted her and damn near killed her.

    “I didn’t even know that they were beating me with flagpoles and sticks and things,” she later said in an interview on 60 Minutes. “Because the sexual assault was all I could feel, their hands raping me over and over and over again. They were trying to tear off chunks of my scalp…not trying to pull out my hair, holding big wads of it literally trying to tear my scalp off my skull.”

    She thought they were going to kill her. They probably would have if she hadn’t been rescued by Egyptian women who themselves have suffered plenty at the rough hands of their neighbors.

    This is interesting,

    A federal judge has ordered Jackie, the woman who told a fake gang-rape story to Rolling Stone in 2014, to hand over communications and documents that related to her hoax.

    Judge Glen Conrad ordered the release of the documents on behalf of a lawsuit filed by University of Virginia Dean Nicole Eramo, who was maligned in the article and is now suing Rolling Stone for defamation. Eramo’s lawyers argued that Jackie had documents that proved Eramo did not do the things she was accused of doing in the Rolling Stone article. And even though Jackie is not being sued, the judge ordered her to hand over her communications.

    Which means we might get to learn more about the accusation that captured the world’s attention for weeks back in late 2014. At that time, Rolling Stone published a 9,000-word article detailing the alleged gang rape of Jackie as part of a fraternity initiation ceremony.

    Much denial there is,

    Last year, there were 452 suicide terror attacks across the world. Four hundred and fifty of them were committed by Muslims. Last month, Muslims pledging allegiance to ISIS murdered 14 people in San Bernardino, California. Last week, thousands of Muslims around Europe, from Germany to Sweden to Switzerland, sexually assaulted hundreds of young women on New Year’s Eve. Just days ago, a Muslim man shot a Philadelphia cop at point-blank range and declared that he did it in the name of Islam.
    In response, Hillary Clinton declared, “Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with Islam.” She agreed this week that “white terrorism and extremism” are just as much a threat to Americans as ISIS and radical Islam, and then proceeded to blame “gun violence.” The mayor of Cologne, Germany, told young women not to walk within “arm’s length” of young Muslim men, and leftist commentators explained that the wave of sexual harassment resulted from some generalized, nonspecific religious patriarchal attitudes. The mayor of Philadelphia said that the attack on the police officer had nothing to do with “being a Muslim or the Islamic faith,” and that instead, we ought to focus our attention on the pressing issue of gun violence: “There are just too many guns on the streets, and I think our national government needs to do something about that.”

    He said he was delighted with the comical design at first but five years on, it is hindering his ability to have a relationship.

    ‘When I first got it done aged 16 I couldn’t stop getting it out, I got loads of attention and I was a bit of a local hero, I loved it,’ he revealed on the latest episode of Channel 4’s Bodyshockers.

    ‘But I was with a girl recently and I liked her, things were going well until we got naked.

    ‘When she saw it she said “what’s that? I am off!” I was gutted, I never thought I would regret my tattoo when I got it done.’

    Victim blame they do,

    A woman, who came forward and told her story of being sexually assaulted in Cologne, Germany, on New Years Eve, was victimized a second time after an Internet video gave out her identity and suggested her account of the attack was anti-Muslim propaganda.

    The 26-year-old woman named Selina withheld her full name when she gave an interview to German television channel SWR Fernsehen last week. In the interview, she described her moment of terror being surrounded by dozens of men who looked at her like “free meat at the supermarket” and groped her repeatedly. She noted that her attackers spoke Arabic and did not seem to understand German. She described the group of men as “southern looking” with “darker skin.”

    In a follow-up interview with SWR Fernsehen, Selina describes what happened to her after the interview aired. Someone posted a video containing a portion of her interview and suggesting all of the reports blaming Muslims for the Cologne sexual assaults were propaganda. Titles appear in the video which say, “Strange that Selina 1 day after this horror (3 days before this interview) on Insta still was happy.”

    That’s apparently a reference to her Instagram account which the video creator found along with her Facebook page. The video not only suggests Selina is wrong about who attacked her but includes images of her full name and where she works from her Facebook page.

    America held hostage,

    Recent congressional efforts to tighten gaps in the U.S. visa waiver program were blocked by the Obama administration out of fear the counter-terror effort would upset Iran, which opposes the reform to the visa process, according to a letter sent by a delegation of leading senators to Secretary of State John Kerry.
    Congress approved late last year a measure to tighten restrictions on those entering the United States via the visa waiver program, which facilitates travel between America and many European countries.

    The law prohibits travel to the United States for any foreign individual who has since 2011 visited Iraq, Iran, or any other country designated as a state sponsor of terrorism. The Obama administration threatened to waive the provision after Iran publicly opposed the measure and warned that it violates the nuclear agreement with Iran.

    In a December letter to top Iranian leaders, Kerry promised the administration would veto the measure and work to uphold the nuclear agreement.

    “The administration has the authority to waive” the counter-terrorism measures and will take steps to ensure the measures do not “interfere with legitimate business interests of Iran,” Kerry wrote to Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif.

    However, I am not going out and getting a tattoo, ever.

    Youths Of No Appearance are tricky to describe for rabbit types. If they were ever to try, their amygdala would have fits over the badthink.

    Ah yeah gidday,

    Fuzzy at 4:52 am

    Mrs Moehau Man (my conscientious old mum) has done the math and is ready to convert Paua shells into Codpieces, but only if it would make more sense. 😉 “Otherwise there’s not much point”, she said. “Goodness me”, she added. “A smiley from Moe? Am I seeing things? I always thought he’d be too much of a hangman for smilies. Must have just sort of slipped out I reckon.”

    Islam is kill. Kill men. Kill women. Kill children. Kill anybody as long as you have kill kill kill! Morons, eh. Not any bad boy tingles from Muslim men, only duh yuk.

    Moehau Man,
    It’s just that you may have to deal with someone who has no access to puua shells. You could barter for raw materials that your wise old mum could add value to by creating a finishied product and enhance your profits.
    I have been watching Niall Ferguson’s The Ascent of Monry these last two days. I think that he would call it mercantilism.
