At some point in the past I thought that a key (like a secret decoder ring) to understanding the comic was to understand Buddhism -- people's lusts forming habits (their inner demons).

I'm surprised, I find it remarkable, to see anger on the face of the ostensible heroine here, and killing.

I realise it's only fiction (i.e. a famous scene from Jaws), but still. Perhaps this isn't being as good as a man but, rather, as bad -- and a different kind of porn, I'm sorry to say, i.e. violence.

Fight oppression and so on is all very well, but ... (*wrings hands*)

Normally the sisterhood is, when they must, destroying drones (which I imagine are non-sentient beings).

Anyway I don't suppose the little Buddha-on-his-cloud would act like that towards the "shark", if he were there.

This is "Devil TV" again, I guess.

Perhaps he's saying that regarding even those media outlets that appear to be on our side, it's all Devil TV.

New person here. I think you've got it right. Sure, the Woke TV version of the movie has a female heroine, but she's white, has the stereotypical "perfect" body that the media forces down women's throats, is half naked, and committing an act of violence with a big gun.

Rather than create an actually strong and independent female action hero, she's just a white male fantasy, which, along with other evidence in recent comics, proves you right, that the message is that mainstream media has co-opted the "Woke" message and twisted it for their own nefarious purposes.

It's all Devil TV in the end.
