‘Star Wars’ Facebook Page Shuts Down Sexist Commenter

The Force is strong with the “Star Wars” Facebook page manager, who shut down one commenter who claimed that Captain Phasma’s armor wasn’t feminine enough (via Polygon).

“Not to be sexist but it’s really hard to tell that’s female armor for me,” the fan wrote on a photo of the character. The official account responded shortly after with, “It’s armor. On a woman. It doesn’t have to look feminine.”

When another commenter pointed out that the army was creating new armor designed for women because the existing designs were uncomfortable for female soldiers, the account had a response for that as well: “That’s an interesting point, Tom. We’re willing to bet that Phasma’s fits her just fine. It’s clearly custom-made.”

Though a new character, Captain Phasma is already beginning to accumulate something of a fanbase. She already has her own design at Geeky Jerseys, which is safe to assume is as unisex as her armor.

Starring Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” opens on December 18, 2015.
