Jurassic World has made MRAs and Feminists at loggerheads again with both sides claiming that this movie shows how the other side would have destroyed the world if they were not there to save it.
It all started when MRAs claimed that the entire destruction started with one irresponsible woman Zara who was supposed to look after the two kids Zach and Grey Mitchell visiting their aunt Claire Dearing. Zara was so irresponsible that she let the boys go unmonitored and the chaos in the park started. In the end it was the Owen who had to risk his life to save humanity.
Feminists however didn’t agree to this point. They claimed that it was the fault of the creators in the genetic lab that had created this beast with different dinosaur genes and didn’t know how to control them. Feminists also termed this as a symbol of male oppression that they had created a female beast to show women in bad light. So they have blamed men (who dominated the innovation lab) for this destruction.
MRAs have also busted the popular feminist myth of gender wage gap through this movie. They claimed that if Zara or Claire who worked in much safer roles in the park demanded as much salary as Owen or any other alpha who had direct life threat always in their job, that will only be detrimental for Park’s profitability. They claimed the reason women on average may earn less is that they contribute less or take up less risky or less technical roles.
MRAs have also lauded Park’s CEO Simon Masrani for his brilliant thought of creating new creatures with modified genes. According to them due this brilliance of men, human race could think of survival over the ages. They have also mentioned that this brilliance of men will help mankind to evolve and survive in future, too.
Feminists however didn’t let this opportunity go out of their hand. They lashed out at male dominated patriarchy for this oppression and gender imbalance in genetic labs. They said, it is well known that women scientists are doing extremely well in genetic sciences. In fact, most famous genetic scientists are women but still the head of park’s innovation center was a man. This clearly showed how men have dominated everywhere and an imbalance is created.
MRAs have also shown how the character of Indominus Rex depicts the character of modern women. The fact that she could evade thermal detectors, camouflage and do all vile things together shows why men should be careful from all female species. Feminists however have lashed out at patriarchy over the same issue. They said, the fact that the patriarchal lab has created a female beast and kept her alone in a cage is a clear sign of male domination and female subordination. Without this trick she wouldn’t have been liberated from the clutches of evil patriarchy that had made women as their object of pleasure for ages. So feminists didn’t see anything wrong in her tricking the park employees. In fact, they claimed that if the male gender of any species does not respect the female gender of any other species then this kind of havoc is inevitable. They added that that the entire female population of all the global species realizes the male domination now and they want to come out of the clutches of evil patriarchy.
Both MRAs and Feminists have praised the children Zach and Gary for their bravery and intelligence. Feminists have claimed that the engineering knowledge and presence of mind shown by them and the indomitable courage comes from their mother. However, some feminists have criticized Zach’s staring at the girls in the park when they were standing in a queue. They termed that as age-old male oppression and viewing women as sex objects. They claimed that this trait had come from the patriarchy.
MRAs however refuted feminist claim that the kids learnt engineering skills from their mother. They claimed it is always men who marvel in engineering and courage. These two kids show traits of true male heroes who represent a promising future for mankind. MRAs also lashed out at feminists saying that the fact that these kids went astray in the park comes from irresponsible behavior of Zara but in the end one of these two kids intelligence became saving grace for the park (N.B. It was Gary who gave the idea of bringing T Rex into the last fight of the dinos).
In the end, Zara was killed by one of the escaping pterosaurs from the aviary and that has made feminists angry too. They lashed out at male patriarchy that failed to save one of the employees and claimed that it was their carelessness that had killed Zara. MRAs however blamed Zara’s own foolishness for this as they claimed when she should have either been running for cover under attack or evading those beasts. She was standing and trying to be brave when she was not and was eventually killed.
The movie shows that finally a female Mosasaurus living in the sea waters drag Indominus under water killing the same. MRAs say that it teaches them a lesson that only female monsters are needed to kill feminist beasts. Feminists however see this as women coming forward and rescuing the world from further danger created by patriarchal oppression.
We have however enjoyed the movie thoroughly when we watched it and didn’t have time to bother about such thoughts. We recommend our readers to watch the movie in 3D and tell us what they think of this debate raging between the feminists and MRAs world over.
