What are you getting at? You're trying to turn the title of a film called the "First Man", into a discussion about sexism. Explain to me how a biopic about the first man on the moon is discriminatory towards women? Actually, don't.

What kind of backlash is he facing with La La Land? One of the leads is a female, her roomates that have a big song are all female.. And that lead is a frontrunner for Best Picture... What backlash are you on about?

Also, its about Neil Armstrong.. you know the "first man" on the moon. Not everything is about misogyny and sexism.

After Whiplash and La La Land, this is now on my watch list.

Well thank God in Wikipedia they at least regard him as the first person who landed on the Moon. Just curious do you guys know why they've changed the title of Time's Man of the Year to Time's Person of the Year?£

Soooo.... I actually consider myself a feminist and someone who gives a shit about the problems that all females have to go through, in all regions of the world.

But this shit is becoming toxic. Are people even allowed to make stories about real life non minorities anymore? The title is dumb because it just has an awkward sound to me, but wtf is all of this. La La Land backlash lol??
