I thought this video was really interesting and you all might as well. If you don’t have the twenty minutes, it explains the existing expectations of male roles in film, shows how TLJ does it different, and why a certain corner of the fandom would be upset about this. There is a lot of TLJ complaining on Youtube, so it’s nice to hear an intelligent, non-reactionary video. Sometimes the psychology of all of the fandom is a weird, fascinating thing as well.
I don’t post here a lot so if the mods need to move this, feel free.
