Feminists are enraged over a viral video showing various Star Wars characters catcalling Princess Leia as she walks through New York City because they claim it “trivializes” street harassment.
Some of the feminists even demanded censorship of the new video, which shows Lando Calrissian, Han Solo and even filthy Jawas hitting on Princess Leia in a parody of the “10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman” video released last month.
“Wow, this video should be reported, disliked and taken down,” Ashley H. commented. “Over 800,000 women have been traumatized from street harassment; this is not a joke, this is something that should be taken seriously.”
“Eight hundred thousand innocent women are traumatized and are forced to take therapy and sometimes drugs. I don’t find this video amusing, I find it offensive.”

Another video commenter, Ashleigh N., claimed the Leia video “completely trivializes the actual struggles shared by women everyday” while reinforcing “the institutionalized racism fueled by xenophobia, classism, and white privilege.”
“If you need to ask why, you probably need to check you privilege,” she wrote.
And one Twitter user simply called the video “****ing disgusting.”
“Yeah because harassment needs to be made into a parody,” she tweeted. “This is ****ing disgusting.”

It’s not unusual for modern-day feminists to demand censorship of anything they disagree with.
A few months ago, feminists pressured multiple retailers to stop selling various superhero t-shirts because they felt the shirts promoted a “chauvinistic” message.
“DC [Comics] isn’t alone when it comes to producing chauvinistic apparel,” Yahoo contributor Lauren Tuck wrote. “Last year, an ‘Avengers’ shirt for boys declared, ‘Be A Hero,’ while the shirt for girls said, ‘I Need A Hero.’”
Unfortunately, this is the current state of the feminist movement after it was taken over by the CIA and other special interest groups back in the 1950s to promote an “us vs. them” mentality between women and men while ignoring genuine women’s rights issues.
Prior to that, feminism was a real grassroots movement which promoted women’s property rights and voting rights among other noble causes.
Fortunately, more women are now realizing the current feminist movement is nothing more than a top-down dogma meant to encourage “gender wars” which distract from genuine oppression by governments – including the legalized abuse of women in other countries.
“It is a curious fact that our courageous feminists leaders, women who attack mild-mannered American men at the slightest sign of sexism, often grow oddly silent when confronted with the more fundamental abuse of women in Muslim societies,” social commentator Charlotte Hays wrote.
