Let's talk about Season of the Witch
for a moment, shall we?
Now, I like sci-fi/fantasy. I like history. I especially like historical fantasy. What I do NOT like is when people take historical events which were caused by misogyny on a massive
scale and make a movie that's essentially saying "No they were right, women are EVIL, and they have to be destroyed!"
It's the same problem I have with all "real historical witches" stories- these women were victims of a gender-based genocide, and now they're casting the fears of sexist men as being in the right, and these women as being evil. They even use a textbook case of natural phenomenon ("she's summmoned wolves!-" what, like wolves are incapable of attacking travellers of their own volition?) being used as evidence against someone who did nothing wrong.
I'm so fucking sick of this. Stop trying to take real victims of very real misogyny, who were VERY REALLY MURDERED and trying to claim that they got what they deserved. Mark me down as someone who isn't going to see this- they've made it clear that they don't want my money anyway.
