Adult Men Are Just Furious About The New ‘She-Ra’ Cartoon And It’s Hilariously Pathetic

"Anyone who’s mad about She-Ra is just mad somebody earnestly made a show for young girls that gross men can’t co-opt away from them."

Netflix and DreamWorks have rebooted the classic 80s cartoon She-Ra, and its target audience of children and fun-loving adults are enjoying the extremely sparkly and cool new cartoon, and nobody is ruining anything at all. End of story!

Oh wait, men are garbage.

The new She-Ra and the Princesses of Power was basically like one of those whistles that screeches at a frequency higher than humans can hear, so it therefore attracts dogs — except instead of dogs, it cajoled horrifying adult men to slither out from their mum’s basement and into the comments section.

She-Ra has always been a cartoon aimed entirely at girls — the original premise was that the people behind glorified toy-selling advertisement He-Man created the big muscly man a twin sister so that girls could also have something to watch.

But as well as continuing that original trend, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power has made the cardinal sin of being a team made entirely of women writers, on a cartoon aimed at girls. Terrible.

But once it launched, all the slimy dweeb’s worst suspicions have been confirmed. The cartoon is not only almost entirely dominated by female characters, but it’s also specifically empowering to women of different sizes and shapes, moves away from the giant-boobed armour of yore, and also has strong queer storylines. It sounds amazing.

So, naturally, men are angry!

Apart from being absolutely baffled by punctuation, this dude apparently hasn’t seen a woman with short hair? Unless he’s concerned about the lobster claws?

Ah, I see what the problem is — She-Ra ‘looks like a man’. Action-hero She-Ra who can lift wagons and swordfight and do other hero things is unrealistically man because she has muscles?

It’s almost like none of these subterranean virgins has ever seen a woman before?

So, as well as taking to Twitter, these rampant pissbabies are doing other classic things like trying to artificially tank the show’s Rotten Tomatoes score, which is an old trick, as used before by man-children angry over other shows, like Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

These guys sure are angry about their lil’ shows!

But mostly, everyone is uniting over how cool and positive the show is, and are just really excited that young women get amazing cartoon role models.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is currently streaming on Netflix.
