Film Reviewer Prohibited from Covering Movies With Strong Female Leads

It’s exactly like it sounds. Here’s an excerpt from the email sent to Michael Calleri, former film critic for the Niagra Falls Reporter, by the owner:

snow white and the huntsman is trash. moral garbage. a lot of fuzzy feminist thinking and pandering to creepy hollywood mores produced by metrosexual imbeciles.

I don’t want to publish reviews of films where women are alpha and men are beta. where women are heroes and villains and men are just lesser versions or shadows of females.

i believe in manliness.

Spelling and grammatical mistakes are the original sender’s, not Calleri’s or mine.

For the record, I’ve seen Snow White and the Huntsman. In addition to a strong female lead, it also features a strong male lead—you know… the Huntsman?

Calleri’s whole piece is worth reading, containing a short history of the Niagra Fall’s Reporter and its decline.
