One Reason Why I think Guys Think They Love Star Wars More Than Women

Okay now I know how controversial this post might sound but please understand, I don’t mean to make this post about the war of the sexes. I am also well aware of what it feels like to be belittled for being female and loving something that is traditionally only enjoyed by men.

So to clarify – I DON’T CARE if you’re male or female or you identify as something else. On my blog, you can like whatever you want to like, period. You do not have to be male or any other gender you identify with to appreciate Star Wars more than anyone else. So, moving on…

I got the idea for this post from this blog where there was a post about the top seven starships in Star Wars. And then it dawned on me. Maybe this is one reason why people often think Star Wars is “just for the dudes”. How many women do you know enjoy talking about the different types of star wars starships from the movies, or speeders, or anything mechanical?

For anyone interested, the TIE Silencer which then became the TIE Whisper is one of my favourite starships because I like the sleek design with the red cockpit!

I used to dismember my barbie dolls (lol) and play with my brother’s trucks and cars all the time. And I think that being brought up to be who I wanted to be helped me to love and appreciate Star Wars even more. Also, no I am not a serial killer and barbie doll dismemberment is not a precursor to being evil 😂 🤣 My point being that it doesn’t matter one iota what gender you identify with. You can like what you like because you just like it.

Seriously though, I think this could be why it annoys me when I see things on the internet that refer to women not being “true” Star Wars fans. Or not really understanding anything at all about Star Wars because it’s too “masculine”. That is real BS right there. And if you are someone who honestly believes only men can truly appreciate Star Wars, please, unfollow me.

I actually have my own “Best of” list for Star Wars starships and I’ll be posting that sometime soon. In the meantime, let me know what you think of my post and whether or not you agree or disagree with my points.

Until tomorrow, stay safe out there, keep creating and I’ll catch you later!

“I Am All the Jedi” Fan Edit

If you spend enough time on Twitter, you’ll get to see just how much fan-related content is shared over that platform.

Here’s an awesome fan-made edit of the scene where Rey confronts Darth Sidious and he utters the words “I Am All the Sith!” to which Rey responds with “And I Am All the Jedi”. the fan who made this edited that part to include Anakin Skywalker, Yoda, Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan as force ghosts helping Rey defeat the Dark Lord. It’s so well-done, I really enjoyed it and felt I just had to share it here.

I hope you enjoy this clip and let me know if you’ve found any other content online that you think is awesome if it’s fan-made, I’m interested!

Stay safe out there, keep creating and I’ll catch you in the next post

Star Wars Fan Spotlight – LEGO Superfan Builds Star Destroyer

I’ve been having so much fun finding these stories online that I’ve decided to dedicate a blog series to Star Wars fans and their creations and merchandise.

This one is just awesome and one I am just blown away by. Think of all the hours put into making this! Now, that’s dedication. The owner said that it took her three days to build it and it was so big she used herself as a measure of scale!

Her smile says it all, she is one proud Star Wars fan 🙂

What Does Star Wars Mean to You?

I’ve written a few articles based on my feelings about Star Wars and what type of impact it has had on my life. But I often wonder about my readers and other fans as well and what they really think or feel about being part of this fandom.

Is it just a thing you do every now and then? Are you entirely dedicated to this fandom and actively seek out other fans to connect with? Is it something that you grew up with within your household, or is it something that you discovered through another person? Everyone has their own story about what Star Wars is to them.

I am hoping some of you will share those thoughts and feelings with me in this post by leaving me a comment or two about how you became a fan. If you don’t want to mention anything personal, that’s cool – no pressure at all. I’m mostly just curious to see how you all became fans of a galaxy far, far away and why you remain a fan.

I am looking forward to your words and your stories! Can’t wait to read them all.

Stay safe, keep creating, and I’ll catch you in the next post!

43 Years Ago Today, Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope Was Released

It’s a day that I haven’t really blogged about before but it is a special day for any Star Wars fan, especially if you are a fan of the Original Trilogy.

I think as fans we should take some time and think about how Star Wars has impacted our lives and what our world might look like without it. For me, Star Wars has always been a very personal thing and something that started in my family when I was just a kid. I couldn’t imagine my life without Star Wars in it.

Star Wars has changed my life in more ways than one and to say I’m grateful for George Lucas’ vision coming to life is something I am extremely happy to do.

So from me to you and to any Star Wars fans reading this today, I wish you a joyous and safe 43rd Star Wars Anniversary day! If buying Star Wars merchandise is your way of celebrating, I hope you find something really nice to buy.

I found this clip on YouTube and I think it’s really awesome even though nobody has watched it – they should, because hearing Obi-Wan Kenobi say the most famous words at the end is just golden.
