    My mom loves the OT. My wife hates Star Wars, and in particular The Old Republic because of the amount of hours I ended up playing the damn game.

    My mom has read more EU novels than most of the people on this forum. And my sister stood in line with me for 12 hours for The Phantom Menace. My female cousins saw all of the SE releases with me in the theater.

    So, you do like the idea of women being degraded into roles where their weakness and dependence on men to save them is a plot device. Good to know.

    "Star Wars belongs to boys" Oh dear God, you're being serious aren't you. The world is no longer black and white, girls don't play with barbies and boys don't play with racecars. There is a huge number of female Star Wars fans and you've excluded them all. You do realise that female characters are capable of more than being a love interest? Your argument is worded so badly that I can't take you seriously, sorry.

    Exactly. I have a 5 year old sister who is legit obsessed with Star Wars. Hell she wakes me up at 5 am in the morning demanding that I have lightsaber battles with her and rewatch the Empire Strikes back for the 1 millionth time. SW is not just for boys. Its for everybody no matter the age or gender.

    okay
    okay so will they buy the dvd's or the games or the toys of the new trilogy. sorry guys if you thought i was sexist but i was looking at this new trilogy from a buisness point of view, and the fact is that a lot of girls may like the movies, but they will not buy the dvd's, games or toys. But boys will

    If you don't think girls buy geek merch, you've obviously never stepped inside a Hot Topic before. Also, seriously, visit tumblr. VISIT TUMBLR.

    EDIT: also, type any Star Wars related word into Etsy, and check out the results.

    Someday, when you maybe possibly get to smell (or even touch!!!) a girl, you may be shocked to find out what they are actually into. It's rather obvious why you are in the dark on such matters presently, though, so nobody can fault your vapid banality.

    Both will spend a lot of money on buying Star Wars related items, even though they will not see the movie more than once. Between my daughter and I, my wife knows we love Star Wars gifts.

    So far, you've given me very little reason to believe you are a grown man. You certainly haven't been acting like one.

    If you have two sons, you really need to be paying more attention to this topic. Good lord, please don't raise your sons with this absurd perspective on gender.

    While I would prefer a male lead, I could live with a female lead as long as she doesn't fit your suggestion of a hot chick running around in tight clothing. This isn't me saying I want the complete opposite. It is me saying I don't want a sexualized female lead. The character you just suggested is one whose whole purpose is her body. Can there be female characters that are attractive and in tight clothing, sure. However a female character that fits correctly with the storyline, is much better than one there just for her body. If you care just about how she looks then their is plenty of pron on the internet for you.

    this is a star wars site. not a topic about life. i am looking at this from a buisness point of view, the fact is boys love star wars more than girls[ the proof is on this website, how many girls are here] you will not see a group of teenage girls see this movie, you will not see teenage girls playing star wars games.
