Star Wars Preaches Some Truth on Facebook About Female Armor

Screen Shot 2015-08-28 at 10.20.22 AM

Whoever was managing the Star Wars Facebook account when this happened: all of our hearts to you. You nailed it with this reply to that really awkward comment.

Some context: the official Star Wars Facebook account posted some really amazing art of my favorite captain and yours, Captain Phasma. Of course, what’s the first comment that shows up? A comment on how they can’t tell if that’s “female armor or not.”

In the immortal words of Frozone’s wife: why do you need to know?

The world doesn’t need more boob armor. This isn’t Rat Queens, you know. I don’t think “the power of the exposed uterus” can repel firepower of that magnitude.

Cheers to you, anonymous social media manager.
