James Cameron Says His Pregant Na’vi Warrior In “Avatar: The Way Of Water” Is “The Last Bastion For Female Empowerment”
In addition to the dazzling images on a huge aquamarine screen that James Cameron has promised us, he also promises that Avatar: The Way of Water does more to depict “female empowerment” than “Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel” because one of the blue aliens he made up in his mind is “a female warrior who’s six months pregnant.” OK, James! We see you. Female empowerment hasn’t had a champion this dedicated to the cause since the last time James declared his strong female lead unfuckable. You see, unlike that big-tittied strumpet Wonder Woman, Sarah Connor in The Terminator had “pure grit” where her Double-Ds should be. Back then, James’ brand of feminism earned him an Amazonian pimp slap from across the universe from THEE Ms. Lynda Carter, who said to James, “you poor soul,” “STOP IT.” Now I’m going to need somebody to please go get Lynda her Bracelets of Submission; she’s gonna need them again.
James, who thinks a pregnant alien (reverse CGI Kate Winslet) is “the last bastion” for female roles, claims that pregnant females who “fight for survival and protect their children” “doesn’t happen in our society — probably hasn’t happened for hundreds of years,” in case you’re wondering if James has ever left his house, read a book, opened a newspaper, met a woman or seen any movie he didn’t make other than Wonder Woman. James is fixated on those titties! But who can blame him, really? His comments are taken from Variety’s Directors on Directors series, where he was paired with Robert Rodriguez. And lucky for him. Had they put him across from Taylor Swift, our generation’s Simone de Beauvoir, he’d never have gotten away with such nonsense. IndieWire reports:
“Everybody’s always talking about female empowerment,” Cameron said. “But what is such a big part of a woman’s life that we, as men, don’t experience? And I thought, ‘Well, if you’re really going to go all the way down the rabbit hole of female empowerment, let’s have a female warrior who’s six months pregnant in battle.”
Cameron said that Ronal’s pregnancy reflects societies upon which the Na’vi are partly based, where women hunted and fought with the men, and that he wanted her depiction in the film to shatter myths about how pregnant women are helpless or incapable. Cameron called this depiction of a pregnant woman “the last bastion” of female roles that aren’t seen in movies.
It doesn’t happen in our society — probably hasn’t happened for hundreds of years. But I guarantee you, back in the day, women had to fight for survival and protect their children, and it didn’t matter if they were pregnant,” Cameron said. “And pregnant women are more capable of being a lot more athletic than we, as a culture, acknowledge. I thought, ‘Let’s take the real boundaries off.’ To me, it was the last bastion that you don’t see. Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel — all these other amazing women come up, but they’re not moms and they’re not pregnant while they’re fighting evil.”
James. You poor soul. STOP IT. For one thing, the bitch is blue. For another, she ain’t even human. And where is he seeing these helpless, incapable preggos? I give a respectful head nod to every preggo I see because I know that anybody that undertakes the responsibility of incubating a human fetus mere inches away from every single vital organ in their body, FOR FREE, is a badass warrior who could eat me for breakfast for two!
