Wednesday Words – Ghostbusters

“Between Jones’ exit from the table and Dippold’s arrival, this same male journalist — while manspreading in his chair, naturally — later comments that, even if a toy company did make figurines of the cast, “little boys would never play with female Ghostbusters action figures.”

Ah, yes. Thank you, Mr. Whoever You Are, for coming to set today and sharing your unsolicited wisdom about the intricacies of marketing — and for handily summing up the opinion of a small but vocal group of pimply basement-dwellers who have been condemning the all-female Ghostbusters since it was announced in January 2015.”

– Vanessa Golembewski, Refinery29, “It’s not a man thing, not a woman thing. It’s a Ghostbusters thing.”
