Mayor Of Austin Roasts Guy Who Complained About Women-Only Screening Of 'Wonder Woman'

By Mark Pygas

Last month, the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin announced that they'll be hosting one women-only screening of the new Wonder Woman film. Unsurprisingly, this created a stir on social media with some men complaining that the screening was "sexist."

One such person was Richard Ameduri, who sent Mayor of Austin Steve Adler an email complaining about the screening and asking Adler to "name something invented by a woman." His email read in full... 

 "I hope every man will boycott Austin and do what he can to diminish Austin and to cause damage to the city’s image." 
"The theater that pandered to the sexism typical of women will, I hope, regret it’s decision. The notion of a woman hero is a fine example of women’s eagerness to accept the appearance of achievement without actual achievement." 
"Women learn from an early age to value make-up, that it’s OK to pretend that you are greater than you actually are. Women pretend they do not know that only men serve in combat because they are content to have an easier ride. Women gladly accept gold medals at the Olympics for coming in 10th and competing only against the second class of athletes."
