Don’t you understand the Barbie movie? You are dumped! Women’s ultimatum to their partners over the film’s feminist message

AS the feminist film of the summer, Barbie broke box office records.

But it also broke hearts on social media, with dozens of women telling their partners, ‘You don’t understand the Barbie movie?’ Then you’ve been let down.’

The American family film about a doll that comes to life – full of jokes and dazzling dance routines – has become the benchmark for TikTok users to judge their partner’s suitability.

Women are urged to abandon men who don’t understand the film’s messages about feminism and patriarchy.

The buzz was fueled by TikTok users, who insist agreeing to the feminist themes in the Barbie film “should be standard in a relationship.”

One wrote: “Go to the barbie movie with your friends and if they hate it dump them.” Another said in a video that has been liked 800,000 times: “I think going to barbie with your friend should be your relationship test to decide if he is a good long-term partner.”

Another said: “I think it’s perfectly reasonable for women to break up with their boyfriends for pure reasons [negative] Reaction to the Barbie film.’

One woman even canceled their first date after the man refused to wear pink to see the film.

She told TikTok they needed to make going to the cinema an event by wearing pink outfits and posing for photos together.

He refused to cooperate and she canceled the appointment.

Her confession on social media sparked admiration from other women, who said: “If his manhood is so fragile that he can’t wear pink for a night, if it matters to you, you need a new man, because this is a.” Young.”

Others admit that the film has shaped how they see their partners.

One woman said on TikTok, “I feel like I’m awesome because the Barbie movie has affected my relationship and the way I see my boyfriend.” Friends have told me not to let that it changes the way I see my boyfriend because our relationship is really healthy.’

Directed and written by Greta Gerwig, the film hit theaters last month and grossed £612million worldwide. The Barbiecore fashion trend colored the world pink and sales of blonde hair dye rose 47 percent.

The film’s message is that women can be whatever they want without conforming to patriarchy.

The film is set in Barbieland, a colorful and woman-centric utopia where Barbies hold positions of power like President – and the men exist to serve them.

This is in stark contrast to the “real world” that Margot Robbie enters as Barbie and discovers the tangled web of patriarchy and feminism.

Greta Gerwig’s reimagined Barbie makes young girls believe in the real world that they can achieve whatever they want on their own terms.

What to say to your wife/spouse/girlfriend when she asks your opinion about Barbie

By Daisy Buchanan, author of The Sisterhood

Guys, word of warning: If your partner talked you into submitting to the pink and looking at Barbie, chances are she’ll turn to you in the credits and say, “So… what were you thinking?”

That’s not an innocent question. The future of your relationship depends on balance. My advice is to stick to the following script:

“What did I think of the Barbie movie?”

“I’m so glad you asked.” It opened my eyes. I had no idea how much women suffer from structural and endemic power imbalances while men benefit. This film made me think about freedom—the freedom that would result if everyone enjoyed true equality, and not just the freedom to rollerblade in a fluorescent catsuit.

“It’s time men step aside, take a step back, to really support women and give them space to pursue your most ambitious goals.” We’ll only get there if people like me roll up their sleeves and empty the dishwasher .

“But enough of that – after all, what does it matter what I think?” I’ve had my opinions asked by people all my life. The only valid question now is clearly: “What do you think?”
