Watched Rogue One, A star Wars Story last Friday.
And in my personal opinion, this had to be the most left wing, Politically correct bullshit I ever laid my eyes upon. Story was great, however the movie tried so hard to wave the “strong female character” flag it totally lost me halfway into the film.
Nothing against good female role models however there’s a limit to just how much bullshit you can shove down your viewer’s throats before they start choking on it you know! It’s one thing to show us how strong and confident your brave female character is through how the world organically reacts to her actions. But it’s another thing entirely to beat the idea into our heads how she’s supposed to be an idealistic woman of action without any major character flaws by having her waltzing off headfirst into danger with the courageous fervor of a Kamikaze Pilot everycfive minutes.
If you know she’s strong then stop trying to point it out, and let the story play itself out already.
Rey from The Force Awakens was an obviously strong female character but she didn’t need to tell us that every chance she had.
Ahem…my Star Wars rant aside, the exact same criticisms above apply to your business and products as well.
If you feel compelled to brag about how damn good your product is every five minutes like an insecure teenager trying to prove how smart he is to his crush then you aren’t going to instil any confidence in your prospects.
How would YOU feel if one of your best friends kept tapping you on the shoulder every chance just to remind you how cool, smart and sexy they are?
Remember, the coolest cats never have to brag to everyone just how cool they are because they already know they’re cool.
