‘Star Wars’ Face­book page shuts down sex­ism

Metro USA (Boston) - - GOSSIP & MUSIC -

So there’s this char­ac­ter in the new “Star Wars” movie named Cap­tain Phasma, and all we know about the mys­te­ri­ous char­ac­ter is that she’s a high-rank­ing bad­die in a chrome Stormtrooper uni­form that comes with a kicky cape. Oh, and that she’s played by “Game of Thrones” star Gwen­do­line Christie. But ap­par­ently some fans take is­sue with the char­ac­ter de­sign al­ready, as Face­book user Cody Paul com­mented, “Not to be sex­ist but it’s re­ally hard to tell that’s fe­male ar­mor for me” on a photo of Phasma. Well, who­ever’s han­dling the Star Wars Face­book page is awe­some, be­cause they replied sim­ply, “It’s ar­mor. On a woman. It doesn’t have to look fem­i­nine.” Right on.

STILL NOT SOLD ON THE “PHASMA” PART, THOUGH.
