It all started with one little indie cinema that could -- the Alama Drafthouse in New York City decided to a host a women-only screening of the new film Wonder Woman to raise money for Planned Parenthood and now dudes are angry because why not.
We're proud to be hosting #WonderWoman screenings for women ONLY (incl our staff) w/ all proceeds going to @PPFA! 🎟: https://t.co/ILueTsJH6R pic.twitter.com/LmmgAnmBcg

While many (women and some men) applauded the cinema for creating a female friendly space for this historic film, a lot of other dudes derided the cinema and called the event sexist.
Women: We want equal rights, pay equity.
Men: NO! NOT YET!
Women: We want to watch #WonderWoman with other women.
Men: WHY DO YOU HATE US?!! pic.twitter.com/BszdoKpY0r

If you're butthurt about not being invited to one screening of Wonder Woman, turn that energy towards tearing down the patriarchy instead.

Some said they wanted to attend so they could donate money too, but for that Alamo Drafthouse had the perfect response:
To those saying they're upset about WW screenings cuz they wanted to donate to @PPFA, put your $ where your mouth is https://t.co/bYBT4vmh6Q
