Blog Love: Lady Geek Girl and Friends

Lady Geek Girl reminisces nostalgically about Return of the Jedi. She also picks apart the themes of the infamous golden bikini scene.

An excerpt:

There is a part of me that wants to dismiss the slave Leia issue. As Carrie Fisher herself has pointed out, Jabba forces her into a sexualized and objectifying costume and attempts to enslave her, and her response is to kill him and take back her autonomy. In a vacuum, it’s a great narrative about fighting oppression. On the other hand, media isn’t created in a vacuum, and there are plenty of issues with it.

The rest of the post, and others, are worth a read.
