Okay movie lovers get in here.

So you know how that Stan Lee (God rest is soul) and the Marvel Universe have been thrilling us with amazing block buster movies and keeping us at the edge of our seats. Well, that’s not about to stop anytime soon as they are yet to quench our yearning for the suspense they have left us in since the destruction of half the planet and the Avengers failing to destroy Thanos. Instead they have further spiked our yearnings with the release of the super hero movie Captain Marvel.

For all of us who have been comic book lovers for so long; you can say that it is about time we saw the super hero on our Tv screens, besides it is a way for them to usher her into our minds as she is speculated to be the savior of the world in the next Avengers movie. Don’t hold your breath though but keep your fingers crossed.

The trailer which was just released as of today has over 47 million views on Youtube and we aren’t done watching it yet. Can’t wait for the release date in Africa, we need to see what’s coming.

I also wonder if there will be yet another Stan Lee cameo in this one.

The Genderless Economy

Everything in the world is going “less”. Less of this and less of that is the trend that’s taking the world by storm. I presume you have heard the phrase “less is more”, “go minimalist” and so on. We have seen the world embark on a cashless economy agenda, although a few nations on this side of the cardinal points have yet to catch on. We’ve also seen the world embark on a paperless economy agenda but right now the campaigns to this new trend, “Genderless Economy” are running and they are gaining worldwide recognition.

Women have stood up to say they can no longer be second option as they too can do what their male counterparts are doing.

This trend has seen a massive inclusion of women into sports, weight lifting, politics, and many other activities that used to be reserved for the man. Following this, comic companies especially in Nigeria have actively begun to create female superhero characters as they too can be heroes or heroines if you like. Super hero curation company, Disney, have also begun to roll-out products that appeals to their female audience.

Advertising has become more empathetic to the female community. Very recently an ad ran in Nigeria which posed the woman as a strong do-it-all personality and the ad came under fire. They said that in as much as the woman can handle all of these, should the man just sit and watch them do it all #WifeNotSlave. Globally, we are seeing movements like the #MeToo and #LikeaGirl empower women and a much more global scale.

This trend is certainly leading to a Genderless Economy, a world where there is no discrimination between women and men, a world where women aren’t thought of as weak and unintelligent. The question in forms that ask for gender will probably be deleted.

Yet I wonder, when the world no longer sees sex would men still be chivalrous towards women, will they still be gentle?

Just TINKing.
