I was just reading yet another thread about Star Wars on Twitter and it kinda made my blood boil a little.
I have actually blogged about a similar topic and my view on Rey is quite simple. It’s nothing at all to do with her being male or female. I am just trying to understand how someone without any training in the force can defeat an opponent who is clearly not her equal. I couldn’t care less if she was male or female. It’s just not believable in terms of the story.
Sure, there probably are sexist fans who think that Rey should be weak because she’s a woman but I’m not one of them.
Anakin was the chosen one and even he had to train for years to master the force and how to use a lightsaber so please don’t tell me that Rey could do what she did without being someone special.
We don’t know that she isn’t and I guess we need to see what Episode IX says about that but for now, I’m a woman saying that I think they made Rey too powerful to make a believable story. That’s it, really. Nothing sexist about that at all.
