I don't mind films with female leads see Alien/Aliens(in fact best sci-movie ever made imo) or Terminator, or Brienne, Cercei in GoT- but they are well made not generic
I mind SJW garbage propaganda being pushed down my throat, like pushed diversity qoutas in new star wars and tiny anorextic british girls being some top fighters, somehow makes less believable characters
If you don't think there's SJW agend a getting stronger in Hollywood, watch this trailer
The ratio of the militia/military in Star Wars doesn't look one to one to me.
Back on planet Earth the ratio of women to men in militias varies a lot - for some countries it's up to 30%. I'm guessing it's increased over the past 40 years in the US?
You've got a weird view of size if you'd describe Felicity Jones as looking anorexic. Even Daisy Ridley could only be described as slim - arguably a similar build to most gymnasts.
From what I've seen of the Rogue One trailer (and none of us have seen the whole film) - the lead character's gender doesn't look that relevant to the plot. You could replace the lead with a male actor without dramatically altering the dialogue.
The Ghostbusters film's casting is interesting, although I think an all female lead cast was chosen to give the reboot some freshness rather than for any social agenda. I won't dispute the fact that there are directors and producers within Hollywood who have their own agendas, but I don't think you can argue that Hollywood as a whole is anyway pushing an image of society that reflects it's current make up, yet alone pushes for greater social equality. The Asian, Black and Hispanic population is grossly under represented compared to reality with white males heavily over represented.
If there is any agenda behind the casting of Rogue One, it's to appeal to the widest audience, rather than push a social message.
