I think they might be confused. Either confused or trying to intentionally steal the show away from us, which yes, means they missed the point.
Honestly I would say it was intentional, but if you think about the ideals of an MRA and their general way of looking at things, I would have to definitely go for THEY SIMPLY DON’T GET IT.
I don’t get the statement in the first place. “Because this show has strong female characters, someone who has an MRA ideology can’t enjoy it”? And because they can’t enjoy it for some reason, they had to either “misunderstand” the show in some dubious way or want to intentionally and maliciously ‘steal’ it from others?
… as if more than one group cannot enjoy a show?
I’m just confused.
It’s just odd that MRAs would enjoy a clearly feminist show
hence the suggestion that they missed the point and are confused (not registering the feminist aspects) or trying to steal it (registering the feminist aspects and deciding that women can’t enjoy positive representation of themselves).
It’s a mix of both. They simply ignore all the feminist aspects of the show and focus solely on the fandom generated non-canon bullshit that appeals to their MRA sensibilities. That makes it easier to convince themselves it’s “their” show. So yes, they missed the entire point and now they’re trying to make it their own / steal it.
