The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has been trying desperately to get people interested in the Oscars again. It’s not an easy task when you have a bunch of overpaid celebrities preaching about social justice while accepting awards for overrated artsy films. But maybe this year will be different thanks to the Barbie movie drama.
The Barbie movie has received a lot of attention lately because the female director and lead actress were snubbed in their respective categories at the Oscars. Meanwhile, the male actor who played Ken got nominated for best-supporting actor. This has caused quite an uproar among feminists who see it as proof that sexism is alive and well.
Losing knows no gender
Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, the director and lead actress of the Barbie movie, didn’t receive nominations in their respective categories. But Ryan Gosling did get nominated for his role as Ken. This has enraged feminists who believe it’s yet another example of women being overlooked in favor of men.
In response to this perceived injustice, Hillary Clinton tweeted her support for Greta and Margot, telling them they are loved by their fans and are more than enough without needing validation from awards. It’s worth noting that both Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie were recognized with nominations in other categories.
Despite this recognition, feminists continue to demand that their chosen heroes receive nominations regardless of talent or merit. Because apparently winning an award based on identity is more important than actual achievement.
Sports are for boys
Megyn Kelly pointed out the hypocrisy of these feminists who claim to care about women’s rights but ignore real instances where women are being discriminated against. She highlighted how these same feminist voices remain silent when female athletes like Riley Gaines get cheated out of their medals by male athletes identifying as women.
Where is the outrage when it comes to protecting women’s rights in sports? The same feminists who claim to fight for equality seem to have no problem with biological males competing against biological females. It seems like their definition of fairness only applies when it benefits them.
Ken speaks truth
The call for Ryan Gosling to give up his nomination in protest is misguided. He earned his nomination fair and square, and it’s a symbol that men can be recognized without diminishing the achievements of women. In fact, Ryan Gosling himself summed it up perfectly:
Ryan Gosling reminded us all that men and women are different, but equally important. Denying this reality goes against everything feminism claims to stand for.
