I just want to say, that I'm watching Return of the Jedi because HBO has been running it ad nauseum, and it's the speeder chase, and Leia stays about twenty feet away from the Storm Trooper and he shoots her and she falls off the speeder (at a speed which should have killed her, but let's not be picky about that), and her Storm Trooper looks back to gloat and then crashes into a tree stump and dies—a very passive way to kill a man.
Meantime, Luke is going neck-and-neck and speeder-to-speeder with his Storm Trooper, all manly and macho, and he causes the death of his Storm Trooper by old-fashioned, well, manliness. Luke crashes into the guy until he goes off course and crashes, while Luke, of course, misses the tree through his superior piloting skills. Nothing passive, all aggressive.
And so, the stealth sexism affects yet another generation, at least until Lara Croft shows up in all of her full-breasted glory.
Yeah, that last was sarcasm.
