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."
"Name something invented by a woman! Achievements by the second rate gender pale in comparison to virtually everything great in human history was accomplished by men, not women."
"If Austin does not host a men only counter event, I will never visit Austin and will welcome it’s deteriorati on. And I will not forget that Austin is best known for Charles Whitman. Does Austin stand for gender equality or for kissing up to women?"
"Don’t bother to respond. I already know the answer. I do not hate women. I hate their rampant hypocrisy and the hypocrisy of the 'women’s movement.' Women do not want gender equality; they want more for women. Don’t bother to respond because I am sure your cowardice will generate nothing worth reading."
