The Top 3 Reasons the All-Female Ghostbusters Will Suck, According to Some Dudes Who Hate Women

Yes, there's already a meme.
Yes, there’s already a meme.

Have you heard? The upcoming Ghostbusters reboot will feature women in the lead roles. Men who hate women seem to be taking the news hard.

And nowhere do they seem to be taking it harder than on MGTOW HQ, a forum devoted to men who are “Going Their Own Way” from women by talking about how much they suck online all day every day.

The assembled MGTOWers have not only determined that the movie will suck but have also figured out why.

So here are the Top 3 Reasons the New All-Female Ghostbusters Will Suck According to a Bunch of Guys Who Hate Women:

1) Because women can’t invent things.

As some dude calling himself TheShaman writes:

Obviously its not gonna be a team of women who created the technology to be ghostbusters- women don’t create anything nowadays except thugspawns and epic fails.

2) Because women are a bunch of copycats.

Mongolking explains:

Your movie’s a gimmick because men did it first. …

[H]ow often do women ever take a risk and do something different that was a success?

Everything they celebrate – from getting the vote, to being elected politicians, to becoming clergy, to going to college, to getting on company boards, to winning Nobel prizes – men had not only done first, they created it out of nothing.

So now we have a group of low ambition women wanting to feminise “Ghostbusters”. That’s the very definition of “uninteresting”.

3) Because everyone knows that women are scared of ghosts. And mice.

TheShaman again:

Women are usually the ones screaming ABOUT ghosts- In an already outlandish plot, we’re now expected to suspend our sense of disbelief to the extent that the very segment of the population that is usually victimized BY ghosts is going to “protect us?” Hell, anything to do with ____BUSTING, whether it be rodent busting, bug busting, etc- its done on the whim of a women who is terrified of whatever it is she wants to eradicate!

Unless the proton packs in the new movie are activated by women pissing themselves in fear, I can’t imagine me enjoying anything out of this new movie.

PhilosopherStoned adds:

I’m not going to suspend disbelief and say that a gender that will jump on a chair when they see a mouse will all of a sudden not only fight ghosts, but have the initiative to start a company that does so. For a movie that where guys trap ghosts in machines, an all female crew just does not seem plausible.

So a 100-foot-tall Stay Puft marshmallow man that is an incarnation of a Sumerian god is the epitome of plausibility, but the idea of women actually starting a company is beyond the pale?

So, lemme get this straight…

As a result of the all-female casting, when I go to see the new Ghostbusters in theaters, I will be reasonably certain that at least one of the more odious segments of our society will NOT be in the dark room I’m going to be spending two hours in?

Awesome!

They don’t seem to remember how much time the guys spent screaming and running in the original movie.

OMG THIS GUY IS SO RIGHT. Women NEVER invent anything. They just steal things from men and then they don’t let men participate anymore! Like writing novels! And science fiction! And computer programming!

…oh wait.

Shorter TheShaman and PhilosopherStoned:

1. I don’t know anything about women or inventing.
2. I somehow missed the fact that nearly everything big coming out of Hollywood these days is a sequel/adaptation/reboot. I also missed the fact that the Ghostbusters reboots is being directed by a man.
3. I think Tom & Jerry cartoons are documentaries.

It’s about our childhoods.

I reckon I didn’t have a childhood? Or something?

Par for the course for MGTOWs, since as far as I know there is no campaign being planned to abduct them and force them to watch the new movie. They are perfectly free to GTOW to a different movie, but somehow they feel oppressed by this movie just existing, in another room, where they are not present and are not forced to acknowledge it.

Yep. These are truly the enlightened among men.

So it’s going to be a reboot instead of a sequel then? Probably just as well. It would have been sad to see just three of the old crew, all looking too old for this shit, accompanied by the obligatory explanation as to why Egon wasn’t there.

I do hope that the EPA isn’t the human villain this time around.

Also Imma go out on a limb here and say that this guy has never met a woman in his life before. I actually really like mice and think they’re kinda cute. Not that I want to live with one, but I had no issues working with them in labs (except lol I can’t work in a lab cuz I’m a wimmin.)

Also, this Ghostbusters movie is TOTALLY improbably because women have absolutely no experience in dealing with the unwanted presence of hovering beings who just won’t go away.

I am interviewing Fri for a new lab job. I would be working with mice. The PI is a woman.

Either a MGTOW IS wrong about women, or this just doesn’t compute.

Also, how can you not want to see Melissa McCarthy in Ghostbusters?

And one more thing. In re. mice: when a mouse ran out onto the kitchen counters in the apartment I share with my girlfriend one too many times, and was caught under a glass and then dumped out the window into the cat-infested courtyard as a warning to other rodentia that HUMANS ARE FUCKING TERRITORIAL, it wasn’t me who did it.

Oh man the pee-pants tantrums from those guys are just glorious! This is clearly the best and most devious act of misandry of our time. I look forward to their shrieking manbaby reviews when it is finally released.

So what form will this reboot take? Will the female Venkman still manipulate hapless test subjects into accepting her advances? Will she still inexplicably bring a sedative syringe on her big date?

They’ve happened on it. There are just way too many non-romantic comedies starring women.

Just way too many.

Like.

Uh.

Hmm.

It’s not YOUR CHILDHOOD, shitmonkeys,it’s ours too. Just fuck off and don’t watch the movie instead of making it all about how your boners has a sad.

The Ghostbusters soundtrack was actually the first album I ever bought for myself, on cassette tape.

But TIL *my childhood* doesn’t count.

These faux Ghostbusters fans must have forgotten how in the Real Ghostbusters cartoon, Janine strapped on a proton pack and saved the guys at least once. And she gave Egon ideas for a couple of inventions.

“It’s about our childhoods!”

Waaaaaa! Whine, stomp, pout! And look! Is that a puddle of urine I see, slowly snaking its way across the floor? Why yes, it is!

Yeah, dudes, it’s all about YOU, as usual. What’s that you were saying about making something all about oneself, again? Oh right…it’s not sexist when MEN do it!

Item: I saw the original Ghostbusters when it first came out. And one thing that annoyed me about it was that all four of them were men. I thought, why do they have to be men? Women can do all the same things they can. The only significant female character was a love interest who gets possessed by an ancient Mesopotamian ghoul. Boooooooring.

Also, women who scream and jump on chairs when they see a mouse? Why no, that’s not an old sexist Hollywood trope AT ALL! Never mind that I’m not afraid of mice, and that I know for a fact that screaming and jumping on a chair is a sure way to cause panic and accidents. But what would I know? I’m just an actual, living feeeemale.

This was hard to follow, but let’s see if I got it.

1. Men don’t believe in ghosts.
2. Women believe in ghosts.
3. Only men can hunt ghosts.
4. Movies are real.
5. HELP

This one line is so absurd in so many ways . . . I can only laugh.

I’m honestly surprised I haven’t come across a “More like BALLbusters, amirite” comment yet. But maybe that’s because I avoid those people.

@grumpycatisagirl

I had to read that sentence so many times before understanding it. Isn’t this pretty similar to that thing about Vox Day and the fantasy game/book/movie (can’t remember) he was working on? VD thinks it’s unrealistic for women to be in combat, but elves and orcs are totally real. These guys are saying they’ll watch a movie with ghosts in it, but having women appear in a movie is just too unrealistic.

Dhag85, and more than that, we know that Hollywood producers cite that there are people like them when making movies.

The really annoying part is that their infantile behavior actually does shape culture.

I’m a woman. And I ain’t afraid of no ghost.

In fact, the time when I had a significant ghostly experience (the one that turned me into a believer) there were two (TWO!) other women with me who saw the exact same thing. The same disembodied shadow pacing up and down in front of our cabin – we would open the door and there was nobody there. Or anywhere nearby. And we talked about it, and we were nervous cos yknow, we were living there for the summer, but nobody freaked out and we went to work every day and continued like nothing was wrong.

So go on MGTOWs, why don’t you tell me I’m fearful and irrational, right after submitting yet another post online about the widespread threat of false rape accusations and being married-then-divorced purely for your money.

This isn’t about this specifically so much as it’s about “RUINED MY CHILDHOOD” nerdrage as a whole… But, like, do they think that reboots/prequels/sequels open up wormholes and erase the originals from existence? Last I checked, the ’80s Ninja Turtles still exist despite Michael Bay’s monstrosity, and if that couldn’t destroy a franchise via spontaneous timestream erasure, nothing can.
