Just because it’s Supergirl not Superwoman, doesn’t mean Melissa Benoist’s character isn’t a feminist hero.
I really like her but that show is just woman angst
Oh god this comment section it’s going to be so much fun : D!!!
I hate how attractive she is.
She’s cute but her version of feminism is not actual modern feminism. Modern feminism is a bunch of fucking Satan spawn.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but, Jeb Bush was right. She’s hot.
The misogyny is strong in this comment section.
Guess what show I’m not watching this fall :)
What? The character’s name is Supergirl. Why would they call her Superwoman?
Your show is mediocre. Couldn’t care less about the “stronger messages” present in your show if the quality of the writing and direction make various fan films I’ve seen look like the work of Christopher Nolan and Drew Goddard by comparison.
I like her, but the show is not great. It’s not bad by any means, but when going up against heavy hitters like The Flash, Daredevil, and Arrow, and with Jessica Jones on the way, it is just a little lacking. I’m actually enjoying this season of Agents of Shield more than I did the pilot of Supergirl.
“you’re gonna be a role model” by getting your cloud hacked and ur sex pic stolen#fappening
OMG Supergirl…that’s just sooooooooooo feminist liek omg11!1!
Because she has a vagina?
Feminists are typically fat, ugly, angry lesbians.
I feel like she’s completely unaware of what modern feminism is. I also feel kind of bad for her because I’m sure she’s going to be enlightened (rather harshly) by thousands of individuals online during the oncoming weeks. At least she’ll learn the truth.
Was the show tonight? Guess i missed it, though i’d seen the leaked pilot and other than the stupid decision to make her story more like Superman’s aka growing up on Earth. The beating you over the head with the really stupid feminist garbage was the most irritating thing about the pilot. In particular the dumb line from the general about her getting coffee.
Actually that’s the worst speech that she could have done, Supergirl and I’m talking about the comic book character is just a superhero, she’s not promoting any type of propaganda, she’s Supergirl period, there’s no need for her to make that kind of statements.
Look how everyone is crying already because they mentioned feminism in this video. Grow up people.
OK. This is practically the definition of a perfectly innocuous video which on its face seems like it couldn’t possibly offend anyone. And yet within minutes of it being uploaded, it’s already received a really inordinate flurry of thumbs-down, probably for the unconscionable crime of having the word “feminist” in its title. It’s sad that so many people seem to have such a thoughtlessly antagonistic reaction to the word.
Um if its for everyone then its not feminist
There’s nothing unique about this show other than the fact that she has a vagina.
Damn people didn’t even listen to what she said. She’s not spewing typical feminist-bullshit. Insecure males just saw the title, got triggered and disliked.
all of this bullshit in the comment section over a word lol
feminism is a government conspiracy to end marriage and the birth of children. population control. just wait and see
I hope she doesn’t en up like Amanda Bynes ! I like her !
The dislike ratio proves exactly how ingrained misogyny is in our culture….had she been talking about a racially diverse role or any other role which broke stereotypes besides gender, there would be a much more positive response….but because the notion of having a female outside the usual supportive or sexualised character is so unfathomable and goes beyond the realm of ‘open-mindedness’ (I mean cmon this is Stephen Colbert not fucking Fox?!?!), it’s automatically chastised….I thought Stephen’s audience was better than that tbh….turns out there’s more redneck hicks then I thought…
aaand not touching that show.
It makes me sad how its hated how being a feminist is looked down upon. If you believe in equality then you are a feminist no matter what. I didn’t think that it was so wrong if someone wants equality for all.
Technically supergirl in the New 52 is more powerful than superman because she was supercharged by the sun when her space pod was caught in the orbit of the yellow star before she landed onto earth. Frankly having a superhero with no apparent weaknesses seems like the worst premise to base a show on. The only weaknesses she has is kryptonite, a red sun and magic, all of which are rare and/or located very far away from earth.
the fact that she’s empowering feminists is troublesome, but at least it’s not prevalent in the show and she is being a good role model for young girls and women. also I forgot to mention one more thing – her name is “Supergirl” because she was originally a child. I still dont understand why the hell the writers devised such a half-assed version of supergirl, but thats just me.
that show is fucking shit
Well of course a feminist tv series would portray the villain as a male chauvinistic pig. “Back on my planet the women bow before the men!”
Yeah that’s what feminism is all about these days, blaming men for all the inequality. I suppose women who willingly cling to men solely for their money aren’t at fault! No arguments against the archaic law of alimony either! What a feminist Kim Kardashian must be for being an empty headed selfie-book publishing glamour queen! It’s not hard to understand the negative connotations that come along with the term “feminism” these days; its message has gradually distorted into that of anti-men.
supergirl ! nice!
I want to watch the villains get a show. Or at least a good video game.
The pilot was so cheesy. Typical comic book children’s show, once again. We need something dark instead these wannabe hero shows where all is fine and dandy and nobody ever dies. I want to see the world burn in my TV shows, not this butterflies bullshit. We need hardcore version of Punisher. That would be something worth watching.
ironic considering super girl was just created as a stereotypical opposite gender superman that pales in comparison to the original…
This clip feels a bit manufactured, like they had a message they wanted to send with it, I was pretty impressed actually when she was basically asked to make a statement aligning with one party she spits out “The show is for everyone.” Not just for one party but meant for everyone, THAT is equality. Now hopefully they can make the show a critical success.
Did everyone who disliked this actually watch the video?
So I missed the show and forgot to record it but I enjoy Arrow, The Flash, and IZombie would I like this? Based on the trailer it seemed to be just like a romantic comedy with superheroes is this false?
I cannot love her enough ^_^ So awesome how she’s inspiring young women like this.
I think its amazing when a female celebrity doesn’t tow the feminist line and the nails come out to attack her, forcing her to do one of those stupid public apologies
How to get dislikes: Put “Feminist” somewhere in the title.
OMG! Melissa Benoist looks so beautiful on The Late Show!
She really love sex, so do i. XD
“For everyone” is not feminist. I really wish more people would start using egalitarian.
Yea I love a little “feminism” to go with my scantily clad women. What a joke that ideology has become.
Just here to say, they need to step their game up. CW is killin it with the Flash and Arrow, but this shit? its… not interesting, the writing felt rushed and cheesy. its just felt like a generic show about a lady with powers.
Lucifer Morningstar on the other hand was Fukin awesome. funny, clever, interesting plot.
and to those who may think I hate feminist/females/w.e because I commented about a shitty show. Well I’m excited for Jessica Jones cause that actually loooks good, unlike Supergirl.
Netflix, CW, AMC are all we need.
Love how she’s becoming a role model for kids, especially young girls. Like in that photo — those girls aren’t just in a SG costume. They’re in their Girl Scout uniforms. I think kids today realize that while superheroes might be fictional, the good they accomplish in their fictional world can be achieved by us in real life.
Who cares the way CBS is the show will be cancelled by next year.
Well, technically she doesn’t have all same powers he has. I wish they would at least follow the comic.
Some guys really don’t like the word feminist. I wonder why?
I love her :3
Can you guys upload the full interview?
The Fappening, AMIRITE?
Feminism means treating the sexes equally. She had the best response. The show is for everyone, not just women, and not just for the sake of having a female lead.
Good luck, young lady. Please don’t let Hollywood consume you
shows gonna flop
The fact that people automatically hit the dislike because the word feminism says a lot about today’s feminist movement.
supergirl has inspired me to be a feminist, starting today I’ll never hold a door for another female, on account of they is our equals.
Why is this getting so much attention?
why do people feel they have to be somethibg? I take issue with people taking an egalitarian view and calling it feminist
This show is just made so CBS can make money, it most likely won’t last more than one season.
i’m sick & tired of hearing feminists everywhere
I was looking forward to this show, not anymore.
Believe me If everyone put his own picture in his youtube account we wouldn’t have these kind of debates .. you would just say .. emm , this guy has definitly no life, let’s give him some space ..hE needs to release the beast *-*
put on a shitty show and it gets disliked and all of a sudden idiots start bitching about how it has something to do with some patriarchy non sense. typical .
Hope people don’t take the role model the wrong way. by jumping out of roofs or trying to stop a moving car and crazy enough wear the supergirl suit and think your bullet proof.
Feminists are silent when the bill arrives. LOL
Such a nice young lady, I hope her show doesn’t suck. I watched the first episode and its not looking to good.
I dont care if they put feminist in the title.
All i care is the fact she is fucking hot.
Thumbs up? No. Ok
There shouldn’t be so many dislikes on this video just for mentioning feminism, nothing was said that I had problem with. She seems like a lovely girl and a good actress. But modern feminism is disliked, especially on the internet, not because guys are all sexist and don’t support women’s rights, but because the beliefs and actions of many well-known feminists in the mainstream have made the entire movement seem misinformed, controlling and highly intolerant of criticism. The current and growing distaste for feminism among men and women, is at the the end of the day the fault of feminists for allowing some of the loudest, most radical feminists to speak for the entire movement.
I like her as an actress and she seems like a genuinely sweet person but Man, that pilot was one hunk of shit. Horrible writing, acting, direction, tone and editing. The only thing that was halfway decent was the effects.
Her nudes were feminist
Do you think feminism has got to do here ?
She has a beauty that goes above & beyond mere physical attraction. She has the face of an angel.
‘murican teenager going apeshit after the word feminist….LOL
about the hole superGIRL thing there’s still Wonder WOMAN, which is a much more badass character IMO.
And a good role model at that.
Good luck Melissa. Save your money.
Bring back Wonder Woman.
I missed the part where she said why she’s a feminist
If you remove the word “feminist” I’d like to hear anyone object to anything she said. It’s fine if people are opposed to other examples of “feminism” but to judge her by things she is not saying or doing does not make sense. Feminism is certainly contentious but to oppose anyone or anything attached to that label is narrow-minded. I’m very much and advocate of male issues/concerns and not a big fan of what is being called the “regressive left” but videos/comment sections like this is why I refuse to be “anti-feminist.” I’m not against the things that feminists such as Melissa Benoist claim to be for. How she identifies herself or her show is not my concern. What she actually says and does is what’s worth discussing. Frankly, inspiring little girls like she did in that photo Stephen held up is awesome.
This is the right way to talk about feminism. Provide and present good role models, don’t just whine and toss blame around.
Melissa Benoist was sure a feminist when she was getting fucked in the missionary position with those leaked nudes.
Remember the Fappening!
I loved her on the fappening.
The Flash is long overdue for an interview. He’s bringing the Justice League together one day!
Stephen Colbert looks just like her cousin.
No, Melissa, feminism is NOT for everyone. Feminism does NOT mean equality. That’s a bait and switch. Sure, they’ll tell you that’s what it means to get you interested. But then you learn that, in order to be a REAL feminist, you also have to believe in this other bullshit, like PATRIARCHY and RAPE CULTURE, as well as the FALSE STATISTICS that feminism is responsible for spreading, like the “wage gap” lie and the “1 in 5” lie. Feminism is an IDEOLOGY that is NOT BASED on FACTS.
I don’t have a problem with feminism as she puts it, but why on earth is it called “FEMinism” if it’s for everyone? It’s just not grammatically correct. Call it Equal-Opportunism or something.
Wtf! “feminist?” Lmfao. Of course… I wonder if, Hillary Clinton or Rosie O’donnell play as a surprise guest star in the new Supergirl movie? lol
