“To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand the Barbie movie. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of intersectional third and fourth wave post-structuralism feminism, most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also Barbie’s feminist outlook, which is deftly woven into her characterisation – her personal philosophy draws heavily from socioeconomic anti-capitalist rhetoric by Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realize that they’re not just funny – they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence, people who dislike the Barbie movie truly ARE idiots – of course, they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humor in Barbie’s empowering catchphrase ‘Break the Plastic Ceiling,’ which itself is a cryptic reference to Judith Butler’s feminist theories. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Barbie’s genius wit unfolds itself on their screens. What fools… how I pity them. 😂 And yes, by the way, I DO have an anti-patriarchal, anti-misogynist, and anti-misandrist tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for those who stand against oppressive systems – and even they have to demonstrate that they’re aligned with feminist principles beforehand.”
