The Nerdiest Explanation For The Lack Of Female Star Wars Characters

Many women are up in arms about the lack of characters in the world of Star Wars, in other words they’re looking for geeky icons of their own and coming up short, which is a fair point.

This used to be explained away with sales, stating that it was simply a matter of marketing towards a target audience, but nowadays there’s really no excuse not to include female characters in sci-fi franchises like Star Wars.

The discussion has been re-kindled by the casting announcement for Star Wars Episode VII, which only included one female character, and that has caused people to revisit the strange Star Wars theory set out last Octoer by author Matthew Gladstone last October dubbed the Hive Theory.

Short explanation: There are no humans in Star Wars.
