Being a feminist is like having Alzheimer’s. Every day has a surprise.
The latest utterly predictable development that has feminists swooning is the record-breaking opening weekend for “Jurassic World,” the latest hugely successful installment in the hugely successful “Jurassic Park” franchise that has been a monster hit since first taking over movie screens since 1993.
It’s got drama, it’s got romance, it’s got huge, loud, really cool and totally deadly dinosaurs in computer-generated imagery that audiences are eating up.
So, naturally ….
Didn’t feminists hate it?… https://t.co/9YHhSJ0Q4o

Of course they did.
Its hero is a man — a military veteran no less! — who acts like a man. It’s heroine is a woman who goes through a life-changing experience (in the form of several close brushes with being eaten alive by genetically engineered prehistoric creatures) and decides that life on the career track might not be the most fulfilling way of spending what days she has on earth.

It’s a DINOSAUR MOVIE! What the hell do feminists want? Norma Rae, for God’s sake?
Fortunately for the future of the Republic, not to mention male-female relationships and the future of Match.com, normal people don’t think like feminists (and especially not that particularly odious brand of lib “thinker” known as a “male feminist.”)
Which is why Monday’s headlines read like this:
‘Jurassic World’ sets box office record. It’s the first film to gross more than $500m world-wide in a single weekend http://t.co/gMtF9Uy8vF

And movie watchers who — unlike feminists and Alzheimer’s patients — can remember yesterday, aren’t surprised in at all.
@instapundit in so doing, Jurassic World passed Avengers: Age of Ultron, also hated by feminists, for top opening weekend this year.

@instapundit feminists are like Islaminazis- they hate pretty much everything.

(Actually, those two hate sides each other. But has anyone else noticed how rarely liberals actually like each other? Really, it’s the oddest thing.)
@instapundit Same people hated American Sniper and look how that turned out. “Problematic” is the new “Banned in Boston.” — Nate White (@nathanrosswhite) June 15, 2015
But if the feminists hated “Jurassic World,” they might love the next installment. Check out this story pitch:
Now, that would be a surprise.
It would also be a flop.
