Have Yourself A Woke Star Wars

Why Anakin Skywalker should’ve been removed from the Jedi Order for sexual harassment

In anticipation of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie release, like many others, I’ve been rewatching the series. To my horror, while viewing Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones, I realized that Anakin Skywalker (even before overtly becoming evil) was a sexual predator in the workplace!

Skywalker’s role in the destruction of the Jedi Order and the establishment of the Galactic Empire is the impetus for the ensuing movies in the franchise. There would be no bad guys in a majority of the films if the Jedi Order had removed a workplace predator from their ranks.

While this may have happened a long time ago in a galaxy far far away, it deserves to be called out now. By allowing a predator in the workplace, and not doing enough to fight sexual harassment, the Jedi Council ultimately engineers its own demise.

Members of the Jedi Council should’ve removed Skywalker from the Jedi Order after his many missteps while protecting Sen. Padmé Amidala. If they had, Chancellor Palpatine would have been unable to leverage Skywalker into destroying the Jedi Order, dismantling democracy and creating the first Galactic Empire.

Frye actually goes through a point by point rationale, but, misses the point that, technically, Padme was Anakin’s superior, so, wouldn’t it be a case of a female superior taking advantage of an underling? And, really, this gets silly, in the notion that actually courting someone is now sexual harassment. This is not a short article. Or sane.
