Are the women speaking up about sexual assault taking down celebrities or the patriarchy? / LGBTQ Nation
Within a patriarchal society that transmits distorted binary gender extremes, questions inevitably arise: How dare women demand their reproductive freedoms, which would reduce or even take away my (the male) making the decision whether to carry or abort my genetic offspring? How dare a woman choose not to marry a man? How dare women compete with me for a high social position?
How dare gay men think of coming onto me? How dare trans men take on the privileges by transitioning that I have “earned” from birth? How dare trans women relinquish male privilege and betray their gender (read as betray patriarchy itself)? How dare intersex people not choose to “become either one or the other”?
Toxic forms of hypermasculinity require the promotion and use of firearms to keep at bay the intensive psychosocial compulsive fear and dread of penetration from bullets, and by extension the gaze of gay and bisexual men, and the female gaze since patriarchy promises males the right to the aggressive outward intrusive gaze, the right of penetration of “others.” And when patriarchal social and family structures converge with patriarchal religious systems, which reinforce strictly defined gender hierarchies of male domination, women and girl’s oppression and oppression of those who transgress sexual-, sexuality-, and gender binaries and boundaries became inevitable.

The Mythology of STAR WARS - YouTube
min 21: George Lucas doesn't see Star Wars as very religious. But distilled construct, to accept the fact that there is a greater mystery out there. 'All the Religions are true. [...] Religions are a container for faith to hold people together.' [...] To believe in god. To ask questions. Believe in the mysteries of life. [...] "I think there is a God." [...] Religion is equal to Mythology ... trying to put the pieces of known and unknown together. [...] Religion is part of social fabric.

Interview ǀ „Man muss entscheiden – wie Luke Skywalker“ — der Freitag
Interview Die Vikare Ulrike Garve und Lucas Ludewig entdecken in Star Wars viele christliche Motive. Die wollen sie in einem Gottesdienst in Berlin aufgreifen [...] die wichtigen Fragen anzusprechen, um die es in dem Film geht: Zum Beispiel, wie gehen wir mit einem Imperium um? [...] Das Gute und Böse? Ludewig: Zum Beispiel diese Dialektik. Wie geht man damit um, dass man von der Sünde befreit ist, aber ja weiter fehlerhaft durchs Leben läuft. Die Situation, die Luke Skywalker im Film erlebt, betrifft uns alle. Wir sind nicht per se böse oder gut, wir müssen uns entscheiden, was wir sein wollen. Luke weiß, dass es einen dunklen Teil in ihm gibt. Er macht eine Entwicklung durch – und entscheidet sich, seinen Vater nicht zu töten, also böse zu sein. Er wirft sein Lichtschwert weg und nimmt den Tod in den Kauf. [...] "Wir müssen den Staat immer wieder danach fragen, ob er sein Handeln verantworten kann."

Interview: Jenny Nordberg, Author Of 'The Underground Girls Of Kabul' : NPR
oppression, gender-based discrimination, ... " "I see how women are treated here. Why would I want to be one of them?" So she goes to great lengths to disguise herself as a boy, and she has constant daily arguments with her parents, who beg of her, "Can you become more feminine? Can you grow out your hair?" And she refuses. She will walk in a hunched-over way, in an exaggerated male fashion, and very much take on the attitude of a young man. This is how she's grown up, and this is what feels natural to her. So, there are a few who actually are able to resist, but most of the time, you don't go against your parents."
