Social justice warriors leave out this key fact when whining over lack of 'Rey' in Star Wars merchandise

StaffRebel Columnist

With The Force Awakens shattering all sorts of records, it hasn't taken long for SJWs to criticize some Star Wars merchandise for leaving out the new female lead.

Hashtags such as #WheresRey have been created by angry feminists demanding an explanation.

For those unaware, Rey is the big star in The Force Awakens and Disney tried to hide this by minimizing her in trailers and posters leading up to the film.

Take this post by Screen Crush taking aim at the latest edition of Star Wars monopoly for leaving out Rey. The post titled “Hasbro Leaves Rey Out of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Monopoly Game, Gives Lame Explanation” has one serious flaw right from the headline.

It's not 'Force Awakens' Monopoly. It's Star Wars Monopoly. As in, it's not associated with any one film in the series. That's why the player pieces include Luke (from Return of the Jedi) and Darth Vader. There are only two other game pieces – Kylo Ren (who is on the box) and FN-2187 aka Finn.

Screen Crush goes on to call Hasbro's reasoning for not including Rey in the game 'baffling'.

Here's Hasbro's explanation: “The Star Wars: Monopoly game was released in September, months before the movie’s release, and Rey was not included to avoid revealing a key plot line that she takes on Kylo Ren and joins the Rebel Alliance.”

The explanation makes perfect sense. Remember how upset fans got when a leaked toy of Rey showed her with Luke's old lightsaber and thereby revealed a huge plot spoiler?

Overall, The Force Awakens is anything but sexist. Rey is an amazing character who stole the hearts of fanboys everywhere with her sick piloting skills and force abilities. Apparently that's not enough for some people.

@bravo Zulu… but apparently you’re not too busy to comment on some “typical bull shite” story though.
Ah yes – a new troll

Actually I can do the commenting while I wait for fuel, oil or maintenance to come and fill me up. I do most of my commenting at work – and as I own the company I am probably ok with it.

Oh, hugo – if you are going to quote me – at least do it correctly

Hugs from the desert today.

Already looking forward to getting back to Canada

Never saw the movie – never heard of Rey

I guess I am simply too busy working to actually support the family, pay my bills and my ever increasing tax load to worry about typical bull schitte from the masses.
