That's what Marvel's Runaways TV show is all about?

Newsbusters (via Truth Revolt) the new TV show based on Marvel's Runaways series from the mid-2000s is a whole exercise in LGBT and feminist-laden SJW stupidity:
The outspoken character of Gert Yorkes (Ariela Barer) is the quintessential social justice warrior, of course. Right from her introduction, Gert insults her adopted sister Molly’s (Allegra Acosta) attempt to try out for dance squad as “reinforcing hegemonic masculinity while marginalizing women’s identity.” Described as a “riot grrrl" and "social justice warrior” in the show’s description, Gert later works to start a club to help “dismantle the patriarchy” and also comments how “no institution has been as oppressive to women as organized religion.”
Which, I'm sure, doesn't include Islam on the list of religions to criticize. And, in the era of Harvey Weinstein scandals emerging from Hollywood, doesn't include showbiz either, nor are its male overlords who committed felonies considered patriarchies to be dismantled.

Oh, and wouldn't you know it:
The show, says Barer, “is a wonderful metaphor about rebelling and resisting,” particularly at a time when the harassment and abuse of women makes daily (hourly) headlines. Acosta takes it one step further: Runaways is also a form of resistance to President Trump’s sexist rhetoric. “We’re contradicting him,” she said. “It’s a coincidence, but that’s what happened. We’re showing that we relish our race and our gender, that we can be our own superheroes.”

“It’s never us sitting around talking about Trump,” said Barer, despite her character’s frequent politicized rants. But, as Gardner added, for the message, the timing is fortuitous. “His presidency is forcing women to stand up and be heard,” she said, “and that’s what the show is about. I think it resonates more strongly because of him.”
Sounds to me like this is just another vehicle greenlighted for the sake of attacking Trump now that he's in office. And, we can be sure there won't be any metaphors for Bill Clinton's wrongdoings, eh?

No doubt, this is Marvel's means of catching up with the leftist propaganda the DC-based TV shows like Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow are clogged with, and proves the live action Marvel adaptations can be just as political as the comics became. Just another reason to change the channel away from Hulu.
