Although I'm a big fan of the James bond series it does make me laugh that a lot of the male fans think that modern take on bond is a fairy because

He's not sexist and Misogynistic like he used to be in connery and moores day

I think you'll find it's because he is no longer true to the origin of the character.

That's what pisses fans off most about corrupted franchises.

@Foxeylady We've got the same problem with Doctor Who now too...

I admit, I am very sensitive to it as it's happening across all of the franchises I've loved over the years, and now the comics industry too.

Those of us who supported these companies and their works for decades are now being thrown to one side and told we are pieces of shit because we are objecting to the things we love being ruined 🤷‍♂️

@Quizzical but tbh hun they don't ough u anything their in the business of making money and part of that is appeal to a modern audience which is a very different type of audience to when back in our day ibe personally don't see any issues with brosnan or Craig's bonds in fact I really like them

@Foxeylady Without us they would have not achieved anything...

When you replace the term 'fan' with 'loyal customer' you start to see things in a different light.

Don't people want to keep loyal customers? Is it good business practice to tell loyal customers to 'go suck a bag of pre-fucked dicks) as has happened on Twitter recently? Is it a good idea to call loyal customers trolls, racists, and misogynists because you changed something about the product they've enjoyed for years?

🙄 not this shit again
Foxeylady · 61-69, F
@Bagalamaga true at at same time it can also give a voice for people wanting to express themselves in a positive way lots of pro and cons to social media
Bagalamaga · 56-60, M
@Foxeylady how do you differentiate between garbage and useful,constructive information if you’re 18-20 though? Anyway..sorry I started out a bit on the aggressive side but the world “sexism “ triggers me lately.looks like it’s not only the young ones that are affected 😂 thanks for remaining civil and have a good day!
Foxeylady · 61-69, F
@Bagalamaga u have to let your kids decide stuff like that it's what I did and they came out wonderful humans no it fine babe it's good to express opinions. Sexism is a shit word and attut to have in general and look forward to when it dies

Daniel Craig was just a poor choice, not an ounce of natural wit or sarcasm. (has one of those punchable lookin faces too...)

Clive Owen would've been my choice
Glossy · F
@wildbill83 Clive Owen? Didn’t he play Jones in Dad’s Army?
That’s a bit of an odd choice!

wildbill83 · 36-40, M
@Glossy Clive [b]Owen[/b], not Clive Dunn...

Glossy · F
@wildbill83 But now you mention it, Clive Dunn [i]would[/i] make a good Bond...

A misogynist is someone who has a pathological hatred of females and wants to see them all dead. I haven't seen that from any Bond in any film.

Sometimes, I think we just use the word "misogynist" without realising what it really means.
Quizzical · 41-45, M
@Glossy I agree.
wildbill83 · 36-40, M
@Experienced33 they should re-name him 000, his face looks like an accident... 🤔

That's weird, because I've never heard anybody saying the modern take on Bond is a fairy. Where on earth did you get that from? 🤔
NankerPhelge · 56-60, M
@Foxeylady Thank fuck pine that as well. Lol :)
Foxeylady · 61-69, F
@NankerPhelge huh lol
NankerPhelge · 56-60, M
@Foxeylady Joke. You said "fir", so I said "pine". Get it? Lol :)
CathyUK · 51-55, F
I feel it has lost all it's charm.

Strange that not being out-dated and cringey makes Craig a fairy!
Personally he's my favourite Bond, and a huge improvement on Brosnan.
mainvane · 61-69, M
Piece Brosnan was the only a fay Bond
