On their morning segment 'Fox And Friends', Steve Doocey introduced Penny Young Nance, the CEO of Concerned Women for America, to chat about the victimisation of men in the film.
If you can't watch the video (we don't recommend it for anger management reasons), here's the gist: Having a female protagonist is bad because it makes men look bad, which is bad. For American families, it's bad.
There's not enough strong male figures in the cinema at the moment, they say, which causes boys to feel less important.
Forget the last 100 years of movies that have left women by the wayside, we need to quickly tackle this problem because it affects men, and could hurt the idea of the average Christian family being run by a burly male who puts bread on the table.
It should be noted that Concerned Women for America is a Christian women's activist group that have incredibly conservative views on abortion and same sex marriage as well as their ancient view of a woman's place in society.
Here's a list of everything that's wrong with this segment:
"Let's be honest, in a family it's important to have both a mom and a dad."
It's fairly clear what's wrong here. Archaic ideals about what a family is, it must be a heterosexual man providing for a heterosexual woman and their big, white, God-fearing family.
"We want to raise real men. We want to encourage masculinity."
What is a real man? Why does every man need to conform to a classic description of masculinity rather than just being themselves?
"It would be nice for Hollywood to have more strong male figures in those movies."
Like every other Disney movie ever made? Like the films where the man comes to the rescue of the damsel in distress? Yes, what Hollywood needs is more of that exact same movie it's been making for the past century.
"Hollywood in general has often sent a message that men are superfluous, that they're stupid, that they're in the way and if they contribute anything to the family, it's a paycheck."
Yeah, I love that film about the guy who brings home a paycheck every day so his wife can buy groceries. That one is a classic.
Fox News, please stop. Stop what you're doing. Stop that. Take a look at the Bechdel Test and check your bloody privilege.
