Men’s Rights Activists Made a 46-Minute ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Cut Without Any Women

Not all heroes wear capes.

Men’s rights activists yeah, yeah, I know have not been very happy about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Something about too many women and people of color actually speaking and making decisions. Apparently, one of these activists took a long hard look at their “Be the Change You Want to See in the World” mug and decided to do something about it.

As Pedestrian first pointed out, one MRA decided to make a 46-minute cut of the film sans any women making decisions. The result is The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit, uploaded to file-sharing site Pirate Bay over the weekend. In a screenshot of the description, the person behind the film who, SHOCKER, decided to remain anonymous said they cut all of Laura Dern’s plot, as well as the moment when Carrie Fisher’s Leia demotes Oscar Isaac’s Poe.

What else was cut?

  • “Cut out most shots showing female fighters/pilots and female officers commanding people around/having ideas.“
  • “NO HALDO! 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.“
  • “No green milk.” (What the fuck)
  • Other edits include “no superpowered Rey,” “Kylo is much more badass” and “Asian chick speaks less.”

Wow, so many salty male tears.

Twitter gave the edit the roasting it deserves.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been plagued by male opinions since it first opened. Despite positive critical reviews, its user score on review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes has been extremely low, requiring Rotten Tomatoes to make a statement about the score.
